This song is just too good not to be included on the ESD.
I have always thought that this was Noel's attempt to do a song in the style of "Imagine" by his hero Mr. Lennon. It is for sure an extremely good attempt! Although the depth of lyrics is no where near that of Imagine its a song full of feeling and sends a good message to the listener.
Oasis get a pretty raw deal from most musical pundits but if you look past all the arrogance and bull you will see that at least Noel is an accomplished songwriter and musician.

Taken from "Don't Believe The Truth" album

"Let There Love" Oasis

Played really slowly, around about 90bpm

I tend to play using mostly down strokes only until you get to the break which I play freely up and down.

Has some nice chord changes and are all as follows. You may like to capo the second fret for a brighter feel to the song. However I don't!

---------E-A-D-G-B-E
CaddG----3-3-2-0-1-0
C(addG#)-3-3-2-1-1-x
Am-------0-0-2-2-1-0
F--------x-3-3-2-1-1
E7/Bb----x-1-0-1-1-0
E--------0-2-2-1-0-0
G--------3-2-0-0-3-3
D/F#-----2-0-0-2-3-2

INTRO
CaddG CaddG# x2

VERSE
CaddG C(addG#) Am F
who keeps a hole in the sky so the heavens will cry over me
CaddG C(addG#) Am F
who stole the soul from the sun in a world come undone at the seams

CHORUS
CaddG E7/Bb
let there be love
Am F
let there be love

VERSE
I hope the weather is calm as you sail up your heavenly stream
suspended clear in the sky are the words that we sing in our dreams

CHORUS
let there be love
x4

BREAK
Am E G D/F#
Come on baby blue, shake up your tired eyes the world is waiting for you
F D/F# G E
may all your dreaming fill the empty skies

Am CaddG
but if it makes you happy, keep on clapping,
E Am G
just remember I'll be by your side
F D/F# G E
and if you won't let go, it's gonna pass you by

INTERLUDE
F D/F# G E x2

NOW STAY QUIET FOR ABOUT 10 OR 15 SECONDS

VERSE, (NO GUITAR)
who keeps a hole in the sky so the heavens will cry over me
who stole the soul from the sun in a world come undone at the seams

CHORUS
CaddG E7/Bb
let there be love
Am F
let there be love
CaddG E7/Bb
let there be love
Am F
let there be love
CaddG E7/Bb
let there be love
Am F
let there be love
CaddG E7/Bb
let there be love
Am F
let there be love
CaddG E7/Bb
let there be love
Am F
let there be love
CaddG E7/Bb
let there be love
Am F
let there be love

CaddG
let there be love

Hi Rodders,

afraid your going to have to give me a clue on this one. Don't know it at all. I lost touch with Oasis after the "Whats The Story Morning Glory" phase.

Thanks Rod,

Now I know it, great song.

I thought the video was almost a parody of The Beatles At Shea.
