John Mayer Tabs

Paper Doll

1 versions


            ---These are the chords John uses in his new single, Paper Doll. John is mostly 
just riffing on the chords throughout, giving it that Mayer-y feel. Tuning is 
standard, no capo. Hope you guys are blessed by this!---


G, repeated throughout. It sounds to me as though John is riffing on the B string 
as follows: 12--s10--s8 (or high E 7--s5--s3)and then heads to a G chord like 
3x543x while hammering the g string from the 5 fret to the fourth. 

(Same as intro)
Paper doll, come try it on
Step out of that black chiffon
Here’s a dress of gold and blue
Sure was fun being good to you

G, Em, C

This one we made just for Fall
And Winter runs a bit too small
This mint green is new for Spring
My love didn’t cost a thing


Em                             C     D
You’re like twenty-two girls in one
Em                         C                  D
And none of them know what they’re runnin’ from
Em                           C
Was it just too far to fall?
     D                   G
For a little paper doll

G throughout

Fold a scarf, Moroccan red
And tie your hair behind your head
Strap into some heels that hurt
You should’ve kept my undershirt


Interlude  G, C, D, Em

G throughout

Cut the cord and pull some strings
And make yourself some angel wings
And if those angel wings don’t fly
Em                                    C   D
Someone’s gonna paint you another sky

‘Cause you’re like twenty-two girls in one
And none of them know what they’re runnin’ from
Was it just too far to fall? (x2)
