John Mayer - Paper Doll chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Quick transcription of "Paper Doll" by John Mayer.
The guitar is actually mainly lead, so what I did was arranging a harmonic progression 
listening both to guitars and bass, so there's some of my interpretation; it works great 
with the song playing along, though.
The song is the classical, C lydian-based John Mayer song.

Intro/Verse:

 |    G      |   Em  D6/9  |
 |    G      |  Cmaj7  D6  |

Break:

 |    Em     |   Cmaj7     |

Chorus:

 |Cmaj7  D6/9|     Em      |



Lyrics:

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
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
You’re like 22 girls in one
And none of them know what they’re runnin’ 
from
Was it just too far to fall?
For a little paper doll
Fold a scarf, Moroccan red
And tie your hair behind your head
Strap into 
some heels that hurt
You should’ve kept my undershirt
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?
For a little paper doll
Cut the cord and pull some strings
And make yourself some angel wings
And if 
those angel wings don’t fly
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?
‘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?
