E/G# = 422100. You can replace it with a normal E, but it sounds fuller this way.
F#m = 244222. (Bar the 2nd fret and use fingers 3 and 4 on your 4th and 5th strings.)

Robert uses a 12-string acoustic guitar but this is for 6-string acoustic. I've 
never tried it on electric, but it should sound just as good.
Listen to the song for strumming patterns.
Don't cry at the lyrics and good luck:)
If I've made errors, please email me and tell me!

Intro: A, E, F#m, D- one bar (4 beats) of each until lyrics start.

Main Riff- A, E/G#, F#m, D
Riff 2: E, F#m
Riff 3: G, F#m

(D)  (A)                           (E/G#)
Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you say
                             (F#)
I just can't stay here every yesterday
                    (D)
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
(A)
Every way to smile
Forget
    (E/G#)
And make-believe we never needed
(F#m)
Any more than this
(D)
Any more than this

(same chord pattern):
Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you do
I know I'll never really get inside of you
To make your eyes catch fire
The way they should
The way the blue could pull me in
If they only would
If they only would
At least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else
That hides away
From me and you
There're worlds to part
With aching looks and breaking hearts
And all the prayers your hands can make
Oh I just take as much as you can throw
And then throw it all away
Oh I throw it all away
Like throwing faces at the sky
Like throwing arms round

(E)
Yesterday
I stood and stared
(F#m)
Wide-eyed in front of you
        (E)
And the face I saw looked back
          (F#m)
The way I wanted to
      (E)
But I just can't hold my tears away
(F#m)
The way you do
      (G)                    (F#m)
Elise believe I never wanted this
  (G)                                  (F#m)
I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises
   (G)                               (F#m)
I thought you were the girl I always dreamed about
    (G)
But I let the dream go
        (F#m)
And the promises broke
                          (E)
And the make-believe ran out...

During guitar solo:
E, F#m
E, F#m
E, F#m
E, D
A, E, F#m, D
A, E, F#m, D
A, E, F#m, D

(back to main riff)
So Elise
It doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
Every way to smile
Forget
And make-believe we never needed
Any more than this
Any more than this

And every time I try to pick it up
Like falling sand
As fast as I pick it up
It runs away through my clutching hands
But there's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else
I can really do
At all...

About the artist behind A Letter To Elise Chords:

The Cure are an English rock band that formed in Crawley, Sussex in 1976. The band have experienced several lineup changes, with frontman, guitarist and main songwriter Robert Smith—known for his iconic wild hair, pale complexion, smudged lipstick and frequently gloomy and introspective lyrics—being the only constant member.

The members of The Cure first started releasing music in the late 1970s. Their first album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), and early singles placed them as part of the post-punk and New Wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s the band's increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre. After the release of 1982's Pornography, the band's future was uncertain and frontman Robert Smith was keen to move past the gloomy reputation his band had cultivated. With the 1982 single "Let's Go to Bed" Smith began to inject more of a pop sensibility into the band's music. The Cure's popularity increased as the decade wore on, especially in the United States, where the songs "Just Like Heaven", "Lovesong" and "Friday I'm in Love" entered the Billboard Top 40 charts. By the start of the 1990s, The Cure were one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world and have sold an estimated 27 million albums as of 2004.[1] As of 2007, The Cure have released twelve studio albums and over thirty singles, with a thirteenth album due in September 2008.
