Wonder if any cats have chords to this song known to me from Norah Jones. I looked at some sheet music sites and as usual the chords look very complex and in Bb - would appreciate

the chords ( I can barely see them ) start-
Bbmaj7/Bb7/Ebmaj7/D7(#5?)/Gmin7/C9/F7(sus?)/Bb/F7(sus)
Now as wonderful as this must be to play I'd be happy with simplified chords.( Alternately all chords for me to play about with and simplify myself.) Can you help?

Play it with a capo at 1st fret and play it -

Amaj7 - A7 - Dmaj7 - C#7 - F#m7 - B7 - E7
Amaj7 - A7 - Dmaj7 - C#7 - F#m7 - B7 - E7 - A
F#m7 - B7 - E7 - A

Chorus

F#m - B6 - E7
F#m - B6 - E7 (D - C#m7 - Bm7 - E7)

You can't really get away from that's the chords of the tune and any great simplification is going to make it sound different!

The song works round a chromatic descent on the chords so tend to play it (from memory no guitar at work!)-

x02120
x02020
x5767x
x4666x
242255
x2x245
0xx135
x0x025

Something like that anyway!

In the chorus it's

244222
x24444 (the 4 on the top string is important)
022100 (I tend to slide this up to this chord - 076700)

etc

Hope that's a help

You're welcome I hope it's rightish :)

There's lots of opportunity to augment some of the chords (like an E7 augmented at the end instead of the E - ie 020110 which sounds nice)

I have a little solo acoustic break that I play to amuse myself (though not in public) which ends up moving the key up a semitone which I might post sometime.

There's a link to me playing through it and my wife singing it here with a guitar solo which is nice from my young son
