Give it Up – Amos Lee

Tabbed by Bojo

Comments?  E-mail Bojo at Dartmouth dot edu

The chords below are the basic chords, the adds and sus’s in parentheses are the notes 
hammer onto/off of.

You should play the Em7 up the neck at the seventh fret:

E—0
B—8
G—7
D—0
A—7
E—0

Play the A7 as a barre on the 5th fret when you add the 9 (hammer your pinky onto the 
fret of the top string), and as an open chord when you play the add 6 (alternating you 
between 3rd and 2nd frets on the top string).

For the G sus, play an open G and hammer onto the 1st fret of the B string for the 4-3 suspension.

And for the love of God, put some funk into your strumming.  Please?  Do it for me.


INTRO : Em7 A7 (add 9)

VERSE 1:

Em7                     A7 (add 9)
I've been waiting a long time
I was just hoping I might find

C7               G(sus)          A7 (add 6)
Ah, the right kind of lover for me

VERSE 2:

Em7                      A7 (add 9)
Well you know I’ve been lonesome
God knows we all been lonesome

C7                       G(sus)                  A7 (add 6)
Some people think being lonesome really means being free

CHORUS:

          C7           B7          Bm/E
But, I would give it all up for you
Yes I would give it all up for you
         C7          B7   (bass walk E-F#) G
Yes I would give it up Settle down, stop looking around
           A7 (add 9)        B7
I finally found something true

VERSE 3:

Em7                     A7 (add 9)
We live in a world full of confusion
A culture based in illusion

C7                       G(sus)                  A7 (add 6)
Some people think it’s amusing, but its really just fantasy

CHORUS

OUTRO: Intro chords until end

I would give it all, give it all,
I would give it all up for you now baby etc.

I think the Bm/E should be a Gmaj7
