A Rainy Night In Paris
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh

         Em                B                  Em                     B
It's a rainy night in Paris and the harbour lights are low
              Am         D           Em - Em7   Am          B        Em
He must leave his love in Paris_____ before the winter snow.
           Em                    B          Em                       B
On the lonely street in Paris he held her close to say,
         Am    D          Em - Em7                        Am                    B               Em
We'll meet again in Paris,____ when there are flowers on the Champs Elysees...

        Em                          Am         D                          G
How long, she said, how long and will your love be strong
          Em                      Am                F                       Bsus4 - B
When you're across the sea, will you heart remember me?

Then she gave him words to turn to when the winter nights were long,
"Nous serons encore amoureux avec les couleurs de printemps".

And then she said, and then our love will grow again
And then in her eyes he sees
Her words of love are only words to please...

And now the lights of Paris go dim and fade away
And I know by the lights of Paris I will never see her again...
