Broadway - Elaborate Lives chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
There's a bit of picking at the beginning and the end. It's not difficult at all, and 
you shouldn't have any trouble with it. This is the first version of the song as opposed 
to Aida's reprise at the conclusion of the show.

Tuning: Standard EADGBE
Key: G

The Broadway version is actually in the key of Gb, but to put off some work, I figured 
whoever would want these chords would like to have the option of having the original key 
or a half-step higher.

D= xx0232
