                             I Won't Give Up - Jason Mraz
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Andri
Email: globe194@hotmail.com

Tuning: D A D F# A D


!! Important, please read first !!

When you play this wonderful and simple song with standard- or drop D tuning
it won't sound half as powerful as Mraz's studio version.
So i tried to figure out a more powerful, but still "accurate" way to play this Song.
This is not the version Mraz plays ! But it's the most beautiful if you have only one guitar. 

Enjoy, and please rate if you like it :) ...or comment if you find a mistake.

        Note: This chorus is played very soft and silent,
                 you can strum it or pick it. But i would recommend
                 to pick it to keep the dynamic of the song.

        Bridge)

        I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily i'm here to stay and 
make the difference that i can make
        Our differences they do a lot to teach us how they use the tools and gifts 
we got yeah, we go a lot at stake
        And in the end you're still my friend at least we did intend for us to 
work, we didn't break, we didn't burn
        We had to learn how to bend without the world cavin' in, i had to learn 
what i got and what i'm not and who i am
