                           "To Love Somebody"
                       (Barry Gibb / Robin Gibb)


Intro:

	(acoustic guitar w/bass and strings):

	A   G    D A
	/ / / /  / / . .

	A        A          [A chords arpeggiated on harp]
	/ . . .  / . . .

Verse 1:

	            A
	There's a light
	Bm
	A certain kind of light
	D                   A
	That never shone on me
	G                 A
	I want my life to be
	              E
	To live with you
	              D
	To live with you

	There's a way
	Everybody says
	To do each and every little thing
	But what does it bring
	If I ain't got you
	Ain't got... baby

Chorus:

	 A                        E
	You don't know what it's like
	       D                        A  [N.C.]
	Baby, you don't know what it's like
	             E
	To love somebody
	             D
	To love somebody
	           A
	The way I love you

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

	Mmm, in my brain
	I see your face again
	I know my frame of mind
	You ain't got to be so blind
	And I'm blind, so so so very blind

	I'm a man, can't you see what I am
	I live and I breathe for you
	But what good does it do
	If I ain't got you
	Ain't got... baby

[repeat chorus]

	E         (A)
	I... love you

[repeat chorus]

	E             (A) 
	No-no-no-no-no-no

[repeat chorus; fade]

Everything seems right to me so I'm not sure why just 4 stars. If you need to sing a whole note lower (like Ray Lamontagne and Damien Rice) it's also very easy to play:

G Am C G
F G D C

Great tab, but I think that some of the Ds should be played as D7s :) Thank you!
