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)
As recorded by Ralph McTell on "Affairs of the Heart" (2010).

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 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 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?
