The Love Song – Donovan

06/09/2010

This song starts with an awesome intro based on a great riff and then transforms into a silly love song. I was curious what chords such a silly number could have, so I tabbed it. Maybe it will appease your curiosity someday. :P

Intro:
  D

D|-------------3-----------3------|
A|-5-----3-5-------5-3-5------5-3-|
E|-----5--------------------------|

D
I'm not very fancy in the mid of air,
G                A        D     F#m
I'm not proud to say I am merry here.
Bm                      F#m
I've found a girl and I love her so,
G                            Gm
Groovy, groovy woman and she set me free.
Bm              F#m            G    D
Hark awhile and listen to this love song.

   D                             C                      D             Db  C   D
e|------2--------2----------2--------0------0------0-------------2----1---0---2--|
B|---------3---------3-----------------1-------1-------------3--------2---1---3--|
G|-0s2-------2-----------2--------0------0-------0------0s2-----------1---0---2--|

Give me for sometimes I wanted to
Take her to the woods and show her what to do.
She could see the stars if she's looking up,
Drink the sweet juice from a loving cup,
Show her what it is to make a love song.

D7                          G
Hey, have you ever seen the lonely ones
Gm                        D
Putting down the lovers for having fun?
 D                            G
The very same thing that would set them free,
Gm                                   D
They should catch an evening with my lover and me,
 A
Whoopee!

I'm not very fancy in the mid of air,
I'm not proud to say I am merry here.
I've found a girl and I love her so,
Groovy, groovy woman and she set me free.
Hark awhile and listen to this love song.
Hey, have you ever seen the lonely ones

Putting down the lovers for having fun ?
The very same thing that would set them free,
They should catch an evening with my baby and me,
Whoopee!

  A
G|-------------5-----------5------|
D|-7-----5-7-------7-5-7------7-5-|
A|-----7--------------------------|

    why are the lyrics wrong on EVERY posting of this song???! who is responsible? the first verse is “I’m not very flimsy, I’m not made of air. I’m not what they say I am, I’m merely here.” Please!

      That’s probably because incorrect lyrics were first posted on some website and were then copied all over the Internet.

      But it seems those two lines are not the only wrong ones. I listened closely and I think “Give me for sometimes I wanted to” is not quite right (and I have no idea how to correct it) and also there should be “she would” instead of “she could” in “She could see the stars if she’s looking up”.
