                             I Won't Give Up (Acoustic) - Jason Mraz
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: NirvSlender
E-mail: shotputingguitarist@gmail.com

Tuning: Personally I use DGCFAd (A whole step down, and with the capo it sounds like drop D)
,but it sounds fine Standard.
Capo 2 without low E string (So when you play D you will have a bass note!). 
For clarity sake:
These tab numbers are based off of the guitar strings, not the capo! For example, when it says "2"
your not actually pressing on that string because your capo is on it (unless it is the open "E" string).
** Disclaimer: This tab includes baring, so please be sure you can bar correctly to avoid wrist pain! **

Pretty much from here on out its just normal chords with that base note that your capo isn't on.
If there's any confusion just play the chords how you normally would but let the D base note ring out.

(This is where he increases the tempo a little and get faster during the second verse.)

                  (G) (D)
And just like them old stars
                  (G)     (D)
I see that you've come so far
                  (G) (D)
To be right where you are
                 (A) (Asus) (A)
How old is your soul?
                  (G)   (D)
Well, I won't give up on us
            (Bm)       (Abar)
Even if the skies get rough
              (Gbar)  (D)
I'm giving you all my love
                 (A)
I'm still looking up
                        (G)   (D)
And when you're needing your space
           (G) (D)
To do some navigating
             (G)       (D)
I'll be here patiently waiting
                (A) (Asus) (A)
To see what you find
                (G)        (D)
'Cause even the stars they burn
          (Bm)         (Abar)
Some even fall to the earth
            (Gbar) (D)
We've got a lot to learn 
                (A)
God knows we're worth it
(G)
No, I won't give up
(G)
I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
                                             (A)     (Asus) (A)
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
(G)
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
                                           (A)
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
(C)
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend

For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
(Abar)
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
(C)                                                        (Abar)
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not, and who I am
           (Gbar) (D)
I won't give up on us
            (Bm)      (Abar)
Even if the skies get rough
               (G)    (D)
I'm giving you all my love
                 (A)
I'm still looking up, I'm still looking up.
              (G)       (D)
Well, I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
              (Bm)  (Abar)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
           (Gbar)  (D)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
                 (A)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

(This is where I slow down the tempo, sing softly, and let the picking ring out.)

              (Gbar) (D)              (Bm)      (A)
  I won't give up on us,   even if the skies get rough,

The actual intervals for the tab part are not spaced correctly(Ill have to fix that) but you just pluck as if you were singing the song!
