        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:

         G              Em
Perhaps love is like a resting place
    C                D
A shelter from the storm
    G                  Em
It exists to give you comfort
       C                D
It is there to keep you warm
 Bm          Em                  
And in those times of trouble
     C             D
When you are most alone
     Am7       D7                  G     
The memory of love will bring you home

>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:

    Bm             Em
Oh Love to some is like a cloud
    C       D         G
To some as strong as steel
    Bm             Em
For some a way of living
     C      D      G
For some a way to feel
     Bm              Em
And some say love is holding on
     C        D       G
And some say letting go
     Bm              Em
And some say love is everything
 Am7                 D7
Some say they don't know

>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
