G        E7    Am7   D7
Say, it's only a paper moon,

 D       D9     G    D7   G    D9
Sailing over a cardboard sea,

G       E7          Am7     D7
But it wouldn't be make believe,

   Am7    D7       G    D7
If you believed in me.


G         E7      Am7     D7
Yes, it's only a canvas sky,

  D      D9    G  D7   G     D9
Hanging over a muslin tree,

G       E7         Am7     D7
But it wouldn't be make believe,

   Am7     D7      G   G7
If you believed in me.



(Bridge:)

    Am7 Gdim Bm    Bm7
Without your love,

        Am7   D7     G     G7
It's a honky tonk parade,

    Am7 Gdim  Bm   Bm7
Without your love,

       G       E7	  A9     D7+5
It's a melody played at a penny arcade.



G       E7         Am7     D7
It's a Barnum and Bailey world,

  D      D9      G   D7 G    D9
Just as phony as it can be,

G       E7         Am7     D7
But it wouldn't be make believe,

   Am7    D7       G
If you believed in me.
