Love Is In The Air by John Paul Young

Intro: 4/4 |  C  |  %  |  %  |  %  |

    C                                         Fmaj7
1. Love is in the air__ Ev-‘ry-where I look a-round
    C                                           Fmaj7
   Love is in the air__ Ev-‘ry sight and ev-‘ry sound
          G                        F
   And I don’t know if I’m be-ing fool-ish 
    G                       Am
   Don’t know if I’m be-ing wise
            Ab7                         C
   But it’s some-thing that I must be-lieve in
              G                      | Dm – G7 |
   And it’s there when I look in your eyes

    C                                          Fmaj7
2.	Love is in the air__ In the whis-per of the trees
    C                                          Fmaj7
   Love is in the air__ In the thun-der of the sea
          G                       F
   And I don’t know if I’m just dream-ing__ 
    G                    Am
   Don’t know if I feel sane
                Ab7                     C  
   But it’s some-thing that I must be-lieve in
              G                        |Dm-G7| G–G6| G7–G| G9–G7| G11–G7|
   And it’s there when you call out my name

         C                | Fmaj7 |  C                | Fmaj7 |
Chorus: Love is in the air___       Love is in the air
            | Em7          | Am - Ab7 |  G  |  %  |  %  |  %  |
         Oh   Oh ___     Oh  Oh__ Oh     Oh

    C                                         Fmaj7    
3.	Love is in the air__ In the ris-ing of the sun
    C                                            Fmaj7    
   Love is in the air__  When the day is near-ly done
          G                          F    
   And I don’t know if you’re an il-lus-ion 
    G                   Am
   Don’t know if I see true
              Ab7                         C
   But you’re some-thing that I must be-lieve in
                G                      | Dm – G7 |
   And you’re there when I reach out for you

    C                                          Fmaj7

   Love is in the air___ Ev-‘ry sight and ev-‘ry sound
          G                        F    
   And I don’t know if I’m be-ing fool-ish
    G                    Am
   Don’t know if I’m be-ing wise
             Ab7                        C
   But it’s some-thing that I must be-lieve in
             G                       |Dm-G7| G–G6| G7–G| G9–G7| G11–G7|

Please Note: The transition from G6-G7-G9-G11 is very easy with very easy changes
             between chords. G9 is perhaps the trickiest but becomes very easy with 
             practice.

             Make sure you are comfortable with the | G–G6| G7–G| G9–G7| G11–G7| 
             run before playing along with the music as the chord changes occur 
             at a fair rate.
