GUEST,Larry Saidman John Stewart - who plays his songs? (21) RE: John Stewart - who plays his songs? 09 Apr 12


Hi Guest!

The song actually modulates twice, and is thus in 3 different keys.


I play it starting in Bb, then it goes to C, then D.

The chords in G (with a modulation to A)--at least as I do it, which would be pretty close (although I haven't listened to the original for awhile) would be:


Some kind of love is like gold
G          D (F# bass)    Eminor

C          D          G
That is the hardest to hold

                   B            Em          C
For it catches the eye of each thief passing by

G    D                   E      D
Some kind of love is like gold


(same chords as 1st verse)

Some kind of love comes too soon
That kind of love heals your wounds
When your wounds are all healed, and your back on your wheels
You say that kind of love came too soone

Chorus
E                   Bm
Some kind of love, some kind of love
C          G             A            D
Everyone's searching for some kind of love
E                  Bm
Some kind of love, some kind of love
C          G             D            G    Bm (F# bass) E E7
Everyone's searching for some kind of love


A...(repeat next verse in A).   Same chord progression but one tone up.


Hope that helps.

If some of those chords aren't exact, I've little doubt somebody will correct me.   Mudcat's a great forum.
