                            "LOVE SONG" off LP "Tumbleweed Connection" (1970)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Les Gibson

Tuning: Standard.

Lovely acoustic ballad written by Lesley Duncan, recorded by Elton on the much underrated 
early album Tumbleweed Connection: really simple to play.

This is the elton john version of the song; NOT the Lesley Duncan version.

--Intro (fade in):

--Verse 2 (same picking pattern with slight variations)(1:18):

Em9         Em7       Em9       Em7                A7    A7sus4   A7   A7sus4
You say its very hard, to leave behind the life we knew.

Em9         Em7          Em9          Em7          A7    A7sus4   A7   A7sus4
But there's no other way, and now its really up to you.

Em9         A7
Love is the key we must turn
Em9          A7
Truth is the flame we must burn
Em9          A7
Freedom the lesson we must learn
Em9                A7
Do you know what I mean?
Em9                   A7
Have your eyes really seen?
