1st VERSE:
 E                 B
I've been throwing horse-shoes,

 A            B
over my left shoulder,

 A                E
I've spent, most all my life,

F#                 B7
searching for that four-leaf clover.

 E            B 
Then you came with me,

 A         B
chasing my rainbows,

 A        E
Honey, I love you too,

 B7
and that's the way love goes.

  CHORUS:

 E                  B
That's the way love goes babe,

 A               B
that's the music God made,

 A          E
for all the world to see,

 F#                 B7
it's never old, it gro--0--0--ows.

 E              B
Losing makes me sorry

 A                  B
You say honey don't worry

 A                E 
Don't you know I love you too,

 B7                      E
and that's the way love goes.

The chords are all wrong. Playing along with the CD, you can tell that he probably uses a capo on the first fret, where, instead of a D, it would be an Eb, which is the first chord of the verses and choruses. Pay close attention to the actual song to get the rest; it's simple!!!

The chords DO NOT match the original recording nor does the solo tabs,not even close. It's played in C with a capital on third
