Perhaps Love - John Denver
 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By: JohnnySZS
Notes: Hello, this is my first tab I made mostly by ear from videos. Chords courtesy of
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjWg-f_V-GE
This is song is very simple once you know the chords and sounds great when you fingerpick it!
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Any time your playing a chord, you can switch up the top three notes. |
| Example: For a C chord, instead of playing C, G, high C, then high E, |
| you can play C, G, high E, then high C, or C, high E, high C, then G. |
| It doesn't really matter. It's up to your interpretation. |
| Mixing it up sounds nice. |

Hope you enjoy!

Lyrics (Try to follow along, phrases preceded by a > is a direction):
VERSE 1:
Perhaps l[G]ove is like a r[Em]esting place
A sh[C]elter from the st[D]orm
It e[G]xists to give you c[Em]omfort
It is t[C]here to keep you [D]warm
A[Bm]nd in those [Em]times of trouble
When [C]you are most a[D]lone
The m[Am7]emory of l[D7]ove will bring you h[G]ome
>TO VERSE 2
VERSE 2:
Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don't know what to do
The memory of love will see you through
>TO CHORUS
VERSE 3:
Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it's cold outside
Thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you
>TO CHORUS 2
CHORUS:
Oh L[Bm]ove to some is [Em]like a cloud
To s[C]ome as s[D]trong as s[G]teel
For [Bm]some a way of l[Em]iving
For s[C]ome a w[D]ay to f[G]eel
And s[Bm]ome say love is [Em]holding on
And s[C]ome say l[D]etting g[G]o
And s[Bm]ome say love is [Em]everything
S[Am7]ome say they don't k[D7]now
>TO VERSE 3
CHORUS 2:
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
Some say they don't know
>TO VERSE 3 AND FINISH
