Perhaps Love

"Perhaps Love" is a song that John Denver wrote and originally recorded as a duet with Plácido Domingo. The song appeared on Domingo's 1981 album of the same title. "Perhaps Love" is the only song on the album with Denver's vocals alongside Domingo's.

You can play along with John Denver in the videos, except for the introductory chords which I patterned differently for our BUG Jam!

"Perhaps Love" was addressed to Denver's wife Annie Martell (the eponym of his #1 hit "Annie's Song") while they were separated and moving towards a divorce. In an interview the day after Denver's death in 1997, Annie said that this was her favorite song of his, rather than "Annie's Song" (which she also said she enjoyed). "Perhaps Love" peaked at #22 on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart and #59 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982. Denver recorded a solo version of the song for his 1982 album Seasons of the Heart, which is the version I used for the songsheet.  This version also appears as a bonus track on the 1998 reissue of Rocky Mountain Christmas.
