The Book Of Love
by Peter Gabriel

...A simple, but Beautiful song...

From the 2004 Movie "Shall We Dance"

*** Capo on Fret #1 
*** Actual Key Is Ab / Play in Key of G
*** The entire song is G/C/D/G Progression


Intro - G/C/D/G  G/C/D/G  G/C/D/G  G/C/D/G

G           C       D        G
The book of love is long and boring
G          C        D    G
No one can lift the damn thing
G            C                    G
It's full of charts and facts and figures
G   C            D      G
and instructions for dancing
G     C  D  G
But I........
G         C        D    G
I love it when you read to me
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G   C           D  G 
You can read me anything
G                C      D     G
The book of love has music in it
G              C           D     G
In fact that's where music comes from
G          C       D        G
Some of it is just transcendental
G             C    D      G
Some of it is just really dumb
G     C  D  G
But I........
G         C        D       G
I love it when you sing to me
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G       C       D     G
You can sing me anything

Bridge:  G/C/D/G  G/C/D/G  G/C/D/G  G/C/D/G

G           C       D        G
The book of love is long and boring
G       C        D    G 
And written very long ago
G            C           D            G
It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
G                C       D     G 
And things we're all too young to know
G     C  D  G
But I........
G         C        D       G
I love it when you give me things
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
G    C  D  G
And I.......
G         C        D       G
I love it when you give me things
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
G    C  D  G
And I.......
G         C        D       G
I love it when you give me things
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
