Fig. 1
E |---------------|
B |---------------|
G |----------6-7-9|
D |----6-7-9------|
A |7-9------------|
E |---------------|

Bass:
    ***********************
G  :----|-----|------|-----|-------|-------|7-7--|----7|
D  :----|-----|7-7---|----7|0------|7-7----|-----|7-7--|
A  :0---|7-7--|------|7-7--|-------|-------|-----|-----|
E  :----|-----|------|-----|-------|-------|-----|-----|

Intro:
The bass repeats the section indicated by asteriks. In the background is Amaj7(2) played on the offbeats. Amaj7 is strummed on occasion, and then Dm is played, quickly followed by Amaj7 (You should be able to hear this). Also,  A and E are played just by themselves (if your fingers are already in the position of Amaj7, then all you're doing is plucking the A string and then the 7th fret on the A string.

Verse/ Chorus:
The bass line itself is the verse, repeated over and over. In the background is Amaj7(2) and then Dm(2) corresponding with the changes by the bass.
As for the *organ* section playing in the background, I've come up with the first part, I think, though it may be wrong.

e|-----------------------|-----
B|-----------------------|-5---
G|-4---------4-----------|---6- and that's all I have...
D|---6-5-5-6---6-5-5-6-5-|-----
A|-----------------------|-----

The French in the lyrics above is occasionally wrong grammatically (e.g. it should be au parc, insead of a la parc), but I believe what is listed above is what is said. Feel free to post suggestions; this was done by ear and is probably wrong anyways :dunno:

[edit]A clip of the song can be found here

Good work with the French lyrics. Would have taken me a while to figure out the song seeing as i don't know any French.
