Wedding Song (There Is Love)" with Chords and Lyrics

Vocals: Noel Paul Stookey

"Into every songwriter's life comes a song,  
the source of which cannot be explained by personal experience..." 
- Noel Paul Stookey

A printer friendly .pdf version of this song is available. It requires a free copy of Adobe Reader. You can get the reader at www.adobe.com

and the charitable foundation that grew from it.

Tuning is dropped four half-tones
(C F Bb Eb G C)
*********************************************** Noel plays the 12-string guitar open with no capo. These chords, played out of 'G' formations, will match the recorded pitch

once you tune down four half steps.

***********************************************

INTRO
These chords are not intended to be strummed. Instead, Noel uses an arpeggio picking pattern to achieve an overlapping downscale run, starting on the second string third fret and ending on the third string open. The phrase is repeated at the end of each verse and at the end of the bridge.




G
He is now to be among you

       D
At the calling of your hearts

C+d
Rest assured this troubador

                 G
Is acting on His part.

                  D
The union of your spirits, here,

    C+d              G
Has caused Him to re-main

         Em          G
For when-ever two or more of you

    D
Are gathered in His name

         C+d            (G  A7 - C+d - G) or INTRO phrase
There is Love.  There is Love.



G                     D
A man shall leave his mother

      C+d             G
And a woman leave her home,

    Em                G
And they shall travel on to where

    D
The two shall be as one.

      G             D
As it was in the be-ginning

   C+d              G
Is now and  til the end

Em              G
Woman draws her life from man

    D
And gives it back again.

             C+d            (G  A7 - C+d - G) or INTRO phrase
And there is Love.  There is Love.



          C         Em     Am
Well then what's to be the reason

       D              G
For be-coming man and wife?

      C         Em         Am
Is it Love that brings you here

   D                    G
Or Love that brings you life?

       G             D
For if loving is the answer,

     C+d              G
Then who's the giving for?

   Em             G
Do you believe in something

            D
That you've never seen before?

           C+d           (G  A7 - C+d - G) or INTRO phrase
Oh there's Love, there is Love.


                        D
Oh the marriage of your spirits here

    C+d              G
Has caused Him to re-main

         Em          G
For when-ever two or more of you

    D
Are gathered in His name

         C+d
There is Love.

        (G  A7 - C+d - G) or INTRO phrase
There is Love.
