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

Standard tuning  EADGBe
The song uses basic chords
   D    Em    F#m     E      G    A     B
