Is This Love? ʻUkulele Chords by Bob Marley

Jump to chords

Reggae doesn’t get any better than this! A killer riff, a mellow mood, and a smooth melody. I simply love this song.

This tune kind of has a lot of chords and some speedy changes so be sure to brush up on the key of A/F#m! As you go through the tune, don’t expect the progression to follow a repeating pattern because in true Bob fashion, this song flows and isn’t concerned with such things. What feels the same is actually different so be sure to follow your ear.

For the Bm C#m D E walkup I like to retain the finger barre from the C#m minor and play the D and E with a Bb shape on the 5th and 7th frets. For the rest of the chords, use standard shapes.

F#m     D  A (x2)

(E)     F#m     D              A
I wanna love ya, and treat you right.
(E)     F#m            D             A
I wanna love ya, every day and every night.
     (E)  F#m            D                   A
We'll be together, with a roof right over our heads,
     (E)       F#m      D            A
We'll share the shelter, of my single bed.
      (E)      F#m        D               A
We'll share the same room; Jah provide the bread.

Is this love, is this love, is this love,
Is this love that I'm feeling?
Is this love, is this love, is this love,
Is this love that I'm feeling?

Bridge: Bm  C#m  D  E  

    I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know now.

Bm  C#m  D  E 
    I've got to know, got to know, got to know now.
                   Bm willing and able;
   F#m                      E     D  C#m  Bm
So I throw my cards on your table.
