"Do You Believe In Magic"
(John Sebastian)

Intro:

        Dm    Em      F     Em     Dm     Em      F     G
/  /  /  /    /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /
                                                   Do you...

Verse 1:

                   C
Do you believe in magic
       F
In a young girl's heart
         C
How the music can free her
     F                        C
Whenever it starts, and it's magic
        F
If the music is groovy
     C                           F
It makes you feel happy like an old time movie

      Dm                Em                F         Em
I'll tell you 'bout the magic, and it'll free your soul
               G
But it's like tryin' to tell a stranger 'bout-a rock 'n' roll

Verse 2:

If you believe in magic
Don't bother to choose
If it's jug band music
Or rhythm and blues, just go and listen
It'll start with a smile
That won't wipe off your face, no matter how hard you try

Your feet start tappin' and you can't seem to find
How you got there  so just blow your mind

                              (If you believe...)

Verse 3:

If you believe in magic
Come along with me
We'll dance until morning
'Til there's just you and me, and maybe
If the music is right
I'll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night

And we'll go out dancin', baby, then you'll see
How the magic's in the music and the music's in me

Coda:

 F
Yeah
                   C
Do you believe in magic,  yeah
           F *          Em           F           Em
Believe in the magic of a young girl's soul
   F *         Em          F        Em
Believe in the magic of-a rock 'n' roll
   F *         Em             F          Em    G7
Believe in the magic that can   set you free,  ah...

     * guitar plays F; vocal harmonies imply F6 or Dm

                F
Talkin' 'bout magic
               (do you believe   like I believe)
                   C
Do you believe in magic
                   (do you believe   like I believe)
                   F
Do you believe, believe
                   (do you believe   like I believe)
                   C
Do you believe in magic
                   (do you believe   like I believe)
