Where are you fbc? I think I've nailed the bridge ... thoughts?

Points to concede:

- Paz's harmony is on point. <3

Bel Esprit

C Am F C

   C                   Am
He did his little dance
       E                      F
There up in the north of Spain
C Am
Danced all the way to France
Just to try to bring her rain

C Am F C
That's the waaaaaaaay of this man

He rolled away the stone
With a plastic crucifix
'Cos he'd rather get his kicks
Than to be here all alone

That's the waaaaaaaay of this man


     Bb   Bb/A Bb/G Bb/A    Dm  A7  Cm  Bb      Bb   Bb/A Bb/G Bb/A

He's not much of a bel esprit
She can't seem to understand him
A bit more like a chimpanzee

C Am F C
C Am F C (over Santiago)

She thinks he has no soul
'Cos he never learned to crawl

That's the waaaaaaaay of this man

And he can only sing
Of his incipient love

That's the waaaaaaaay of this man

He's not much of a bel esprit
She can't seem to understand him
A bit more like a chimpanzee

F Dm Bb (sublime key-change - why are things so hard to make out?)
That's the waaaaaaaay of this man

Nice shot for the bridge. Sounds right !

After the "that's the way of this man", looks like BF is playing something like this:

0---0---0---0---0   0---0---0---0---0
1---1---1---3---1   1---1---1---3---1
2---2---2---2---2   0---0---0---0---0
3---3---3---3---3   2---2---2---2---2
X---X---X---X---X   3---3---3---3---3
X---X---X---X---X   X---X---X---X---X

I might be wrong though. Any clue ? Look here @1:51 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXduDJODscA

He also does a lot of extra notes with his little finger (how do you call em ? 7ths ? dunno. Extra notes la Greens and Blues chorus.)

Would be nice to post other Head Carrier chords. Title track is easy, I'll try to post them later.
