Has anyone figured out the chords for Janis Ian's Bright Lights and Promises. I think it may take me a while to get all the key changes!!

Cheers

She sings it starting out in C# so here's something to get started with until I get back from watching my son play football - haven't got to the end yet

Assuming capo at 4 -
1
A F#m Bm E
A F#m E
D Dm A A/G# F#m
F E A
----
A F E A
----
Dm Dm/C# Dm/C G/B G G/B Gm/Bb A7
Dm Dm/C# Dm/C G Bb A7 Dm C#
----
F#m C#/G# A/C# C#/F F#m Bb
----
Bit in Ebm and then into the 1 section in Bb
----
At the end of that it goes
F# F and then goes up a semitone into B
----
1 section in B


it's a start
