In this proud land we grew up strong
   Cm                 Bb/C    Cm

We were wanted all along
Bb/D    Eb          Ab/Eb Eb
I was taught to fight, taught to win
      Bb               Eb/Bb     Bb

I never thought I could fail
        Cm        Bb/C  Cm

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose
     Don't give up - 'cos you have friends
Ab/F       Eb/G           Cm7/Ab

     Don't give up - you're not beaten yet
Ab/F       Eb/G                 Cm/Ab

     Don't give up - I know you can make it good
Ab/F       Eb/G        Ab           Bb

Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

don't give up - you still have us
don't give up - we don't need much of anything
don't give up - 'cos somewhere there's a place where we belong
		     Ab                  Bm             Eb      Ab/Eb-Eb
Rest your head
	  Bb   Eb/Bb-Bb

You worry too much
	      Eb   Ab/Eb-Eb

It's going to be alright
                 Bb    Eb/Bb Bb

When times get rough, you can fall back on us, 
     Eb                            Ab      Eb

Don't give up,    please don't give up
           Eb  Bb        Eb            Ab/Eb-Eb

Got to walk out of here, I can't take anymore
       Eb                        Bb

Going to stand on that bridge, keep my eyes down below
         Eb                            Ab

Whatever may come and whatever may go,
    Eb                    Bb

That river's flowing,    that river's flowing
             Eb       Bb              Eb       Ab/Eb-Eb  

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

Don't give up - 'cos you have friends
Don't give up - you're not the only one
Don't give up - no reason to be ashamed
Don't give up - you still have us
Don't give up now - we're proud of who you are
Don't give up - you know it's never been easy
Don't give up - 'cos I believe there's a place
                       Ab                Bb

There's a place where we belong
Bb                       Eb

End Section:
[Cm bass riff]

Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up
           Eb             F              Cm
