Something In The Air Chords
Tom Petty's cover of Thunderclap Newman's "something in the air". I learned this
song a couple months ago and by listening to the album I know it is about 100% correct.
Great song and easy.  Enjoy

About the artist behind Something In The Air Chords:

Thomas Earl "Tom" Petty (born October 20, 1950) is an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist who is the frontman of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and was a member of the Traveling Wilburys. He has recorded a number of hit singles, many of which remain heavily played on adult contemporary and classic rock radio. Petty is also a vocal critic of the modern recording industry and the disappearance of independent radio stations.[1]

Petty has been supported by his band, The Heartbreakers, for the majority of his career. He has occasionally released solo work, as is the case with 2006's Highway Companion[2], on which he performed most of the backing instrumentation himself. However, members of The Heartbreakers have played on each of his solo albums and the band has always backed him when touring in support of those albums. Petty has been managed by Tony Dimitriades since 1976.[3] On February 3, 2008, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performed at the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLII Halftime show.[4]
