Love is Just a Song

Love is just a word
That somebody made up way back
Trying to sell make-up
That she walks in with

Love is just a song
Its a momentary relapse
To that time when you were relaxed
With not much on.

Now I am often wrong, but these signs that I am seeing
Have got me believing,
That love is never wrong
It’s just a song

Teenagers might say that love is just a day
Where it all went your way.
The wiser of us see it’s a day where we agree
On all things that should be.
On all things that should be
We agree.

Love is just a word that somebody else heard
And let loose on the world
And here we are now

Love is just a song
And love is never wrong
Love is here with you
It’s a lovely thing to do

Two people holding hands, share a picture on the fridge
An acceptance of the parts that make us strong
Well we just want to be
Somewhere swimming in the sea
And we hope it won’t take long
But Love is never wrong
It’s just a song

Music Tab:

Can play this on a Chinese Ruan (four-string, moon shaped). It has funny tuning; might take me a while to get these notes up, but we must always struggle for the sake of posterity…

D>A>D>A>D>D
(These are not correct versions of the actual chords, but they are what I think of in my unclassically trained head…)

Verse:

D    B    A    D
0    0    0    0
0    0    0    0
5    2    4    5
0    0    2    0
0    2    0    0
0    x    x    0

Chorus:

D    G    D    B    A
0    0     0    0    0
0    0    0    0     0
5    2     5    2     4
0    0    0    0     2
0    2    0    2     0
0    0    0    x     x
 
As always with this tuning and this style of strummy song, give it some licks wherever it sounds good on the top two strings – this tuning is so naturally harmonized almost any combo sounds good….
