Carly Simon - Youre So Vain chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Artist: Carly Simon
Song: You're so vain
Tabbed by: DJ
2nd June 2013

Tuning: Standard

I've based this tab more on the hit single version, with the more jazzy
extended chords suggested in the full arrangement, rather than the
simpler guitar chords Carly uses to play live.
