Paper Doll
---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)

About the artist behind Paper Doll:

John Clayton Mayer (surname pronunciation: /ˈmeɪ.jɜr/[1]) (born October 16, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter. Originally from Connecticut, he attended Berklee College of Music before moving to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1998, where he refined his skills and gained a following. His first two studio albums, Room for Squares and Heavier Things, did well commercially, achieving multi-platinum status. In 2003, he won a Best Male Pop Vocal Performance Grammy for "Your Body Is a Wonderland".

Mayer began his career performing mainly acoustic rock and pop, but gradually began a transition towards the blues genre in 2005 by collaborating with renowned blues artists such as B. B. King and Eric Clapton, and by forming the John Mayer Trio. The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum, released in September 2006. At the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007 Mayer won Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Waiting on the World to Change". Mayer's career pursuits have extended to stand-up comedy, design, and writing; he has written pieces for magazines, most notably for Esquire. He is also involved in philanthropic activities through his "Back to You" fund and his concern over global warming.
