                           "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


[Instrumental]

        (acoustic guitar w/bass and strings):

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

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


[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


[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
        E         (A)
        I... love you


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


[Chorus] (fade)

         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

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!
