          Gm Eb           F  Dm  Eb                 Cm          D

       I surrende  -- ee ---- er.    Oooh -- ooo --ooo....


Opening riff (the latter half only)
|G5      |        |

Verse:
I remember, seems like a lifetime. Can't believe it's a matter of days
since you left me. I'm near to heartbreak, I want you so bad don't turn away.

What does it take to stay by my side? You know I'll do, what you want me to.
Don't take away this feeling inside, I'm still in love with you.

    Chorus:
    I surrender, I surrender I'm giving up the role of pretender
    oh be tender, girl be tender can't you feel the love that I send you?

    I surrendee -- ee -- eer.
    I surrendee -- ee -- eer.

        Bridge:
        |Gm      |        |        |        |
         Ooo --   ooh!     Yea  --  aah!

    Chorus:
    I surrender, I surrender darling now won't you be tender
    I surrender, oh surrender feel the love that I send you

    I surrendee -- ee -- eer.
    I surrendee -- ee -- eer.

        Instrumental:(repeat as you wish)
        |:Gm      |Cm      |F       |Bb      |Eb      |D       :|


-- TIPS AND REMARKS --

On some notations the chords during the opening riff are marked for example:

|Gm  Eb/G|Cm/G    |x2

As I recall that might be the way it was written on the publised song book, but I don't 
hear Rainbow playing it that way.


What you hear on the opening riff is basically this:

e|----------------|----------------|----------------|15--------------|
B|8-----11--------|13--------------|8-----11--------|----------------|
G|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

For a more advanced technique you can try this. The bend should actually be more like a 
"prebend". The two strings should really ring in unison. In the studio recording this 
was probably done in multiple takes, but Richie also plays this live on some recordings.

e|----------------|----------------|----------------|15--------------|
B|8-----11--------|13--------------|8-----11--------|18b20-----------|
G|10b12-12b14-----|15b17-----------|10b12-12b14-----|----------------|
D|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

The "Cm/A" is played as open chord arpeggio. The first time the latter half sounds like 
a triplet to me:

          [ - 3 - ]
e|--------3-------|
B|------4----4----|
G|----5---------5-|
D|--5-------------|
A|0---------------|
E|----------------|

...and the second time regular 1/8's:

e|--------3-------|
B|------4---4-----|
G|----5-------5---|
D|--5-----------5-|
A|0---------------|
E|----------------|
