Subject: TAB: 'Give to live' - Van Halen

  This is a new version of 'Give to live', for the old one, which is
already on the server is pretty incomplete and sometimes a little bit
wrong. However, I mentioned the original tabbers name in my TAB!


                             GIVE  TO  LIVE
                             (Sammy Hagar)

  Play this song acoustically!

Em        A                   D                G
   I can see that you've got fire in your eyes
        A                D    Dsus4  D  Dsus4  D
   and pain inside your heart
Em           A                    D               Bm
   So many things have come that torn your world apart
       G                    A
   So baby, baby don't give up    [ Fill 1 ]

        N.C          D  G                A            Asus4  A
        If you want love, you've got to give a little
                     D  G                   A
        If you want faith, you've got to believe a little    [ Fill 2 ]
      D              Em                    F#m           A
        If you want peace, then turn your cheek a little
     Bm                G                   A
        You've got to give, you've got to give,
                      F#m      Bm
        you've got to give to live

Verse 2:

   An empty hand reaching out for someone
   An empty heart takes so little to fill
   It's so much easier to push instead of pull
   So baby, baby, don't give up    [ Fill 1 ]


      C                              G
        Each man's a country in his own right
      D                         A
        and ev'rybody needs a friend    [ Fill 3 ]
      C                            G
        One friend, one god, one country
                       [ Fill 1 ]       D  Dsus4  D
        no man need de-fend         no, no

Verse 3:

Em      A        D              Bm
   I believe in faith and destination
 G                  A           D         Dsus4  D  Dsus4  D
   So much of that lies on our own hands
   So if you know what you want,
   well then you can go out and get it
   So baby, baby    [ Fill 4 ]  oh baby, don't you ever give up    [ Fill 2 ]

   [ "smells good here" ]


      D              G                 A
        If you want love, if you want faith, you wanna believe
                   D                         G
        you wanna love somebody, you wanna share your love
        you wanna give your love
      D                     G                  A
        Give a little bit, give a little bit, give a little bit . . .

   Fill 1:


   Fill 2:

   Fill 3:


   Fill 4:


   The 'G' and the 'A' chord change during the song. Play them :

      E A D G B e
   G  3 2 0 0 3 3
   A  X 0 3 3 3 0

                   until the '*'. And in the last part (marked with the '*'):

      E A D G B e
   G  3 5 5 4 3 3
   A  5 7 7 6 5 5

   What does ... mean?

   /    slide up
   //   fast slide up
   T    play with your thumb

     The chords were mainly figured out by the original Tabber MATT TROMMER
