[INTRO]
G7      C    G7         C    G7        C   G7   C 
I never feel a thing is real when I'm away from you
Gdim          C            F         A7   G7           C 
Out of your embrace  - the world's a temporary parking place
Gdim Am   G    C      G      Dm    Am 
Mmm  mmm  mmm  mmm  A bubble for a minute
Gdim Am   G    C        Dm                       D7      G     G+ 
Mmm  mmm  mmm  mmm  You smile - the bubble has a rainbow in it 


[VERSE 1]
C         Gdim   Dm7         G       G7     C   G     C   G7
Say, it's only a paper moon, sailing over a cardboard sea, 
C        A7          Dm7              G7              C Dm7 F#dim G7 
  But it wouldn't be make believe, if you believed in me. 
  

[VERSE 2]
C         Gdim   Dm7         G       G7     C  G   C   G7 
Yes, it's only a canvas sky, hanging over a muslin tree, 
C        A7          Dm7              G7              C  C7
  But it wouldn't be make believe, if you believed in me. 
  

[CHORUS]
     Dm7 Bmaj7 Cmaj7        Dm7   G7     C     C7
With out your  love, it's a honky tonk parade, 
     Dm7 Bmaj7 Cmaj7        C      Gdim        Adim    G+
With out your  love, it's a melody played at a penny arcade. 


[VERSE 3]
C         Gdim       Dm7         G         G7       C  G   C   G7  
   It's a Barnum and Bailey world, just as phony as it can be, 
C        A7          Dm7              G7              C 
  But it wouldn't be make believe, if you believed in me. 

FINAL LINE
C        A7          Dm7              G7              E       G7              C
  But it wouldn't be make believe, if you believed in me.  If you believed in me.
