A Kind of Magic is the second song from Queen’s, ‘A Kind of Magic’ album. You can have a listen to the MIDI file I recorded in 1999.

Intro: 
(No Chord - Play low Bass note of A )
Its a kind of magic, its a kind of magic, its a kind of magic
    A                    B9
One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal

    Dmaj7            A
One golden glance, of what should be (its a kind of magic)

                        B9                Dmaj7          A
One shaft of light that shows the way, no mortal man can win this day.

                     B9                   Dmaj7          A
The bell that rings inside your mind, is challenging the doors of time


    F#m7          D                  F#m7              E
The waiting seems eternity here, the day will dawn, on sanity

   D6             A                                   D           A
Is this a kind of magic, (its a kind of magic), there can be only one

     E         G       D                           E
This rage that lasts a thousand years will soon be gone


     A                  B9             Dmaj7          A
This flame that burns inside of me, Im hearing secret  harmonies

                        B9               Dmaj7          A
The bell that rings inside your mind, is challening the doors of time

<guitar solo over the following chords>
A-> D   A-> D A-> D   D-> A  D-> A      D   A   D   A   D   A
     E         G       D                   E11     E
This rage that lasts a thousand years will soon be done

     D            A            D           A
This is a kind of magic, there can be only one

     E         G       D                            E11  E7
This rage that lasts a thousand years, will soon be done
Outro : Use the A -> D chord sequence over and over, to fade.
