 I was pretty surprised to find that there are so few Madeleine Peyroux songs on
 here at the moment (6!) since I thought she was pretty popular and her songs are
 pretty tab-able. Oh well.
 
 This is my favorite of hers. And it has a relatively standard jazzy chord
 progression. Suggestions for how to play the chords are at the bottom. You can
 actually play these chords in the conventional open string way, but it sounds
 better to me higher up.
 
 [Cmaj7]J'avoue j'en [C6]ai bavé pas [Dm7]vous mon [G7]amour
 [Dm7]Avant d'a[G7]voir eu vent de [Cmaj7]vous mon a[C6]mour
 [C7]Ne vous dé[Fmaj7]plaise
 [E7]En dansant la Java[Am]naise
 [Dm7]Nous n[D#dim7]ous aim[Em7]ions[A7#5]
 Le temps d'[D9]une chan[G9]son
 
 À votre avis qu'avons-nous vu de l'amour
 De vous à moi vous m'avez eu mon amour
 Ne vous déplaise
 En dansant la Javanaise
 Nous nous aimions
 Le temps d'une chanson
 
 Hélas avril en vain me voue à l'amour
 J'avais envie de voir en vous cet amour
 Ne vous déplaise
 En dansant la Javanaise
 Nous nous aimions
 Le temps d'une chanson
 
 La vie ne vaut d'etre vécue sans amour
 Mais c'est vous qui l'avez voulu mon amour
 Ne vous déplaise
 En dansant la Javanaise
 Nous nous aimions
 Le temps d'une chanson

 Beginner way (does not sound too good, but is easy)
 
 Just play D7 and G7 instead of the D9 and G9.

 Proper way
 
 In the first two lines the high G is actually contained in every chord, so the
 first two Dm7 are really Dm7sus4 or add4.
 You'll also notice that in this chart below, Dm7 is mentioned twice. As I play
 this song I move down the fretboard (towards the machine head) so in the "Nous
 nous aimions" line the Dm7 D#dim7 Em7 progression starts round the 5th fret.
