can't Stop Lovin' You
Van Halen (Balance)
Transcribed by: Shaharizal
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes:
   This song is actually in A, but I first scoped in out in G and it's
   (I think) easier to play that way (for me, anyhow) with more open
   strings.  Eddie obviously doesn't share my limitations...
   There are several one-off sections in this song, most of which lead
   into the chorus or solo sections; I've isolated them and labeled them
   "pre-chorus" or whatever.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intro:          Gsus4   G   Gsus2   G  (all strummed)
Reasonable facsimile of next intro part:
(Palm muting on beats in between, I think)
  
Verse 1:
               G                                  Em
     there's a time and place for everything, for everyone
            C                 D
     we can push with all our might
                  G                           Em
     but nothin's gonna come, oh no, nothin's gonna change
              C                D
     and if i asked you not to try
Pre-chorus 1:
                         Em
     oh could you let it be
             C                          Am
     i wanna hold you and say, we can't throw this all away
                 F                              D
     tell me you won't go, you won't go, do you have to hear me say
Chorus:
                  G                                Em
     i can't stop lovin' you, and no matter what i say or do
                 C               D               G
     you know my heart is true, oh, i can't stop lovin' you
Fill between chorus and verse (well, sorta):
     e|---3--5--2------------------|
     B|---3--------3--1--0---------|
     G|---2-----2-----2-----2--0---|
     D|---0-----------0------------|
     A|----------------------------|
     E|----------------------------|
Verse 2:
             G                                                Em
     you can change your friends, your place in life, you can change your mind
            C                    D          G
     we can change the things we say and do anytime
                  Em
     oh no, but i think you'll find
                   C                D
     that when you look inside your heart
Pre-chorus 2:
                      Am
     oh baby, i'll be there, yeah
     Bb           Gm
     hold on, i'm holding on
                Eb                                D
     baby, just come on, come on, come on, i just wanna hear you say
Chorus (same as Chorus 1)
     i can't stop lovin' you, and no matter what i say or do
     you know my heart is true, oh, i can't stop lovin' you
Bridge:
                Am                    D       Bm    G
     oh, i'm so twisted and tied, and all i remember
         Am                            D
     was how hard we tried, only to surrender
Interlude and Solo:
        Bb  C
        C - C - Bb  (3x)
        C - C - G
Pre-chorus 3:
     G                     Em
     and when it's over, i know how it's gonna be
              C               D            G
     and true love will never die, no, not fade away
Chorus 3:
                      G                                Em
     and i can't stop lovin' you, and no matter what i say or do
                 C              D                G
     you know my heart is true, oh, i can't stop lovin' you
                       Em
     and i know what i got to do
                        C             D                G          Em C D
     hey, ray, what you said is true, oh, i can't stop lovin' you
                          Gsus4  G  Gsus2  G
     oh, oh, i can't stop lovin' you

     Also on the verse a second guitarist strums the second fret
     on the top E string(thickest), or you can use your thumb
     as Eddie does.

     This is almost the whole solo.  I changed it to Eddie's
     live version.  So it is a bit easier than the Cd.
     It'll do anyways.  Good Luck
