Only Love Is Real

written by Carole King

from "Thoroughbred", 1976
transcribed by Peter Eybert 


[Capo on the 3rd fret]

Em7  A6/9   (4x)

     Em7                   Bm
As I bask in the glow of a just-lit fire
Em7                       Bm7
feeling the warmth as the flame grows higher
Em7                    A6/9                  Dmaj7
I think it's true that nothing is really new under the sun
           Bm7                E7
watching a new love grow from old love's embers
Bm7                    E7
yesterday's gone but today remembers
Em7/B                   A7sus4            Dmaj7        Asus4 Gmaj7
doesn't it seem to come down the same for everyone?

     D       A11   D                 A11
Only love is real, everything else illusion
D                F#m7/C#  F#m7    Bm        E7      A      Dmaj7
adding to the confusion   of the  way we connive at being alive
Gmaj7     Em7       F#m7      F#7
tracing a line till we can define
    Bm           Bm7        E7
the thing that allows us to feel
     Dmaj7   A11        Dmaj7   A11
only love is real, only love is real.

Em7  A6/9  (4x)

Em7                   Bm
Childhood dreams like muddy waters
Em7                      Bm7
flowing through me to my son and daughters
Em7               A6/9                    Dmaj7
everything I ever thought is confirmed as truth to me
          Bm7                E7
even as I see the way that I want to go now
Bm7                E7
still I wish I had known twhat I know now
Em7/B              A7sus4                 Dmaj7        Asus4 Gmaj7
maybe I could have spared you giving your youth to me.

     D       A11   D                 A11
Only love is real, everything else illusion
D                F#m7/C#  F#m7    Bm        E7       A          Dmaj7
adding to the confusion   of the  way we contrive to just stay alive
Gmaj7     Em7       F#m7      F#7
tracing a line till we can define
    Bm           Bm7        E7
the thing that allows us to feel
     Dmaj7   A11        Dmaj7   A11
only love is real, only love is real,
     Dmaj9   A11        Dmaj7   A11
only love is real, only love is real.

Peter,
Great Tab. The only differences between this unmodified and the way I like to play it are (Again Capo 3)

Em7 A11 Dmaj7 F#7
I think it's true that nothing is really new under the sun

and

Em7 A11 Dmaj7 A13
doesn't it seem to come down the same for everyone?

D C#m7 F#7 Bm E7 Amaj7 Dmaj7
adding to the confusion of the way we connive at being alive.

Which are relatively minor.

John
