[Verse 1]
  C             Am
       For my seventh birthday
                 F
I was given a CD player
        G                                        C
And I played Paul Kelly again and again and again
                       Am
My dad listened to Coldplay
                      F
But I'd always ask him
     G                                       C
To play Kat Stevens again and again and again

[Chorus]
                           Am
Some people believe in a God above
                                    F
Who says hello and he sends his love
    G                                C
And brings to us, peace on earth, but
                Am
I don't need no winged friends
                                      F
Just my guitar and some paper and pens
          G
That's right my friends
                C
I believe in music

Am  F  G  C

[Verse 2]
                     Am
I remember on Christmas Eve
                                   F
My uncle brought his guitar and he
   G                                      C
Showed me how to play David Bowie's Space Oddity
                            Am
I played until my fingers bled
                          F
My mum sent me off to bed
      G                                     C
The next day Santa brought me my own guitar

[Chorus]
                           Am
Some people believe in a God above
                                    F
Who says hello and he sends his love
    G                                C
And brings to us, peace on earth, but
                Am
I don't need no winged friends
                                      F
Just my guitar and some paper and pens
          G
That's right my friends
                C
I believe in music

Am  F  G  C

[Verse 3]
         Am
My grandpa was very sick
                                F
I played his favourite song for him
   G                                         C
Amazing Grace and a piano in the back of a hospital
                       Am
Simple chords and a melody
                                   F
Made him grin from cheek to cheek
     G                                   C
The next day I cried as I said my goodbyes

[Chorus]
                           Am
Some people believe in a God above
                                    F
Who says hello and he sends his love
    G                                C
And brings to us, peace on earth, but
                Am
I don't need no winged friends
                                      F
Just my guitar and some paper and pens
          G
That's right my friends
                C
I believe in music
