Can anyone please post me the chords for The Grand Affair, I suppose in C. I've got the words, I'm just having a bit of trouble with a couple of the chords.

Hope someone can help.

Cheers

Ok bugsy, here goes:

3/4 time and I'll give you the chords as 1 per bar..... like so... |C|Am|...or, |C./B|Am./G|... means play the C chord, on the third beat sound a B note in a run down to the Am, then G note run down etc..... Showing a |G/B| means playing a G chord with the B in the bass.... also, the asteric |*| means to repeat the previous bar. Hope this all makes sense... I'm not including the words, but you should be able to follow one bar at a time.....

Verse: |C|Em|Am|*|C|Em|Am|*|
|Dm|Dm/f|G|G Am G/b|C|G#dim/G#|Am|
|G|C|B7|Em|F|*|
|C.C/b|Am.Am/G|F|*|C.C/b|Am.Am/G|F|*|
C.C/b|Am.Am/G|F|G|C|G|C|*| (repeat for verse)

(after second verse) |G/b|:Am|G#dim|F:| (repeat 3x) then |G| to last verse as above....

Hope this works for you..... play along with the recording and you should be able to follow it....

the G#dim chord is a guess..... needs something with a G# in the bass, and it's the closest I could come up with at 2:30am....

enjoy, it's a great song...

I found the lyrics at one of "those" Websites: https://www.letras.mus.br/ralph-mctell/764171/
I found a recording, and I have verified and corrected the lyrics.


THE GRANDE AFFAIRE
(Ralph McTell)


Take a bus, who needs a car
We'll eat here, take this seat near the door.
I'm not hungry much now, are you?
Is it ok if I share yours with you?
I've got no money and I think I believe that you knew.

Remember the moon on the wall, didn't she shine?
The taste of the sheets and the feel of the wine.
Wasn't I glad that you was mine
In the Grande Affaire?

Take a boat, maybe a plane,
Anywhere now, 'cept Greece or Spain.
For sure, I know where I am,
I see canals, this is Amsterdam.
I got friends here and they know, they can say who I am.

Remember the room without any view?
Frightened of meeting someone that we knew,
No farewells or how-do-you-dos
In the Grande Affaire.

I've stayed [I stay??] in the best hotels,
And there's white coated waiters attend me,
And I look at the beautiful girls,
Do they really believe they can bend me?

I drive now; seldom, I walk.
I can speak French, but I'd rather not talk.
Which suit will I wear tonight?
Take out the brown, but in the end wear the white.
After shade stepping out, stepping into the light.

Remember the moon on the wall, didn't she shine,
The year was all wrong so we sent back the wine,
Wasn't you glad that you was mine
In the Grande Affaire?
