Pale September  Fiona Apple

Note to editors: I submitted this a few days ago but then realized all the Ab6
chords are actually Ab7. Below is the corrected version. Please replace the old
one. Also why was Gb changed to F#? Please leave Gb as is, since it's more natural
to see all flats in a song. THANKS!
I think these are pretty accurate chords. To play it like the Fiona track, pay
attention to inversions. Enjoy!
(Note: Fdim7/Db can also be thought of as Db7(add9))

Fiona Apple - Pale September
[Ab7]Pale Sept[Cdim]ember, [Ab7]I wore the time like a dress that[Cdim] year
[Ab7]The autumn days sw[Cdim]ung sof[Ab7]t around me, like cotton on my[Cdim] skin
[Ab7]But as the embers o[Cdim]f the sum[Ab7]mer lost their breath and disappe[Cdim]ared
[Ab7]My heart went cold and[Cdim] only hol[Ab7]low rhythms resounded from with[Cdim]in
[Fdim7]But then he ros[Fdim7/Db]e, brilliant as the moon in full
[Fdim7]And sank in the burrows of my [Fdim7/Db]keep
And [Gb]all my [Absus4]armor fall[Ebm7]ing down, [Gb]in a pi[Absus4]le at my [Ebm7]feet
And [Gb]my wint[Absus4]er givin[Ebm7]g way to [Absus4]warm, as [Gb]I'm sin[Absus4]ging him t[Ebm7]o sleep
[Ab7] [Cdim] [Ab7] [Cdim]  
[Ab7] [Cdim] [Ab7] [Cdim]  
[Ab7]He goes along [Cdim]just as [Ab7]a water lil[Cdim]y
[Ab7]Gentle on the [Cdim]surface [Ab7]of his thoughts his body floa[Cdim]ts
[Ab7]Unweighed[Cdim] down b[Ab7]y passion or intensi[Cdim]ty
[Ab7]Yet unaware of the [Cdim]depth u[Ab7]pon which he coast[Cdim]s
[Fdim7]And he find[Fdim7/Db]s a home in me
[Fdim7]For what misfortune sows, he know[Fdim7/Db]s my touch will reap
And [Gb]all my arm[Absus4]or falling[Ebm7] down, in a[Gb] pile [Absus4]at my fee[Ebm7]t
And [Gb]my wi[Absus4]nter givin[Ebm7]g way t[Absus4]o warm, as [Gb]I'm sin[Absus4]ging him [Ebm7]to sleep
[Fdim7] [Fdim7/Db] [Fdim7] [Fdim7/Db]  
[Gb]All my a[Absus4]rmor falli[Ebm7]ng down, [Gb]in a pi[Absus4]le at my [Ebm7]feet
And [Gb]my win[Absus4]ter giving[Ebm7] way to[Absus4] warm, as [Gb]I'm sin[Absus4]ging him [Ebm7]to sleep
A[Gb]ll my armo[Absus4]r falling [Ebm7]down, in [Gb]a pile [Absus4]at my f[Ebm7]eet
And [Gb]my wi[Absus4]nter givin[Ebm7]g way t[Absus4]o warm, as [Gb]I'm sin[Absus4]ging him [Ebm7]to sleep
Gb Absus4 Ebm7... (repeat to the end)
