Crazy Love

Written by Van Morrison
Performed by Bob Dylan and Van Morrison June 27, 1989 on the Philopappos (The Hill Of The Muses), Athens, broadcast in the programme Arena: One Irish Rover – Van Morrison in Performance

Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem


The tab for the intro is also the pattern for the chorus. The figure in the first measure is repeated after every line of singing. The third chord (Em in the tab) is played as a C by one of them, probably Dylan.

G               Bm               C        G
 I can hear her heartbeat from a thousand miles
G                Bm         C        G
 And the heavens open every time she smiles
G                Bm                  C   G
 And when I come to her that's where I belong
G                  Bm            C       G
 Yeah, I'm running to her like a river's song
             G    Bm   Em   G     C     D
She gives me love love love love, crazy love
             G    Bm   Em   G     C     G
She gives me love love love love, crazy love
[She's got a] fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
Yeah, when I come to her when the sun goes down
take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like the thief
She gives me love love love love, crazy love
She gives me love love love love, crazy love
D      C               G
 Yes I need her in the daytime
D      C               G
 Yes I need her in the night
D              C              G
 Yes I want to throw my arms around her
Am7                D7               G  .  D  .  G
 Kiss her hug her, kiss her hug her tight
And when I'm returning from so far away
gives me some sweet lovin', brightens up my day
Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me whole
Yes it makes me mellow down into my soul
She gives me love love love love, crazy love
She gives me love love love love, crazy love

She gives me love love love love, crazy love
She gives me love love love love, crazy love
