Give A Little Bit - Supertramp
Tabbed by: Hallvis

The bass doesn't play before the second verse, first it's only acoustic guitar. Here is 
first verse text:


Give a little bit, give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit, I'll give a little bit of my love to you
There so much that we need to share, send a smile and show you care


Here the bass appears:

g|------|-------------|--------------|--------------|-----------------|
d|------|-------------|--------------|--------------|-----------------|
a|-----5|-5--5--5-----|5-5--5--5-----|--------------|----------------5|
e|-3-3--|----------5-5|-----------3-3|-5-5--5--5-3-3|-5-5--5--5--3-3--|
This is being played twice through the first two lines in the second verse:

I'll give a little bit, I'll give a little bit of my life for you
So give a little bit, give a little bit of your time to me


Here you play this:

g|-------|--------|--------|--------|---------|---------------|
d|-------|--------|2-2-----|--------|---------|---------------|
a|-----2-|2-2-2-2-|--------|2-2-2-2-|-----5-5-|----5-5-5-5----|
e|-3-3---|--------|----3-3-|--------|-5-5-----|5-5------------|


See the man with the lonely eyes, oh thake his hand, you'll be suprised


Then it is time for the saxophone solo. Play this together with it.
g|---------|-------|--------|-------|-------|-------|---------|
d|---------|-------|--------|-------|-------|-------|---------|
a|---------|2-2-2-2|--------|2-2-2-2|-------|3-3----|3-3------|
e|-2-2-2-2-|-------|-2-2-2-2|-------|2-2-2-2|----3-3|----3-3--|

g|---------|    <--- Play six times.
d|---------|
a|-----5-5-|
e|-5-5-----|


Then just play the same as first in the 2nd verse to this text:


Give a little bit, give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit, I'll give a little bit of my life for you


And then you play:

g|-----|-------|-------|-------|--------|
d|-----|-------|2-2-2-2|-------|--------|
a|----2|2-2-2-2|-------|3-3----|3-3-----|
e|-3-3-|-------|-------|----3-3|----3-3-|

Now there's time that we need to share, so find yourself, we're on our way back home


Play this to the text below:

g|---------|
d|---------|
a|-----5-5-|
e|-5-5-----|

Oh, going home

Don't you need, don't you need to feel at home

Oh yeah we gotta sing!


It's a guitar part here, not really for bass, but i've tabbed it anyway if you're interested.

d|-----------------------|

e|-2--7-7--9-9-7-7-2-2-2-|
