[Verse 1]
G                G
  I remember the life I used to live
B7            B7

[Verse 2]
G                       G
  Eating lunch out of a garbage can
B7                         B7
  My board shorts were the only clothes I had

  Desperation Blues

[Bridge 1]
Em             A7sus2
  You know the blind can't lead the blind

  Must be an escape that we can find
G            G
  It ain't a bottle or a pipe
B7 B7
  No... no

[Bridge 2]
Em              A7sus2
  You know it's hard to see the signs
C        C
  Day by day they pass us by
G              G
  It's time to open up our eyes
B7 B7
  O... O

[Chorus 1]
G   B7         A7sus2
  I won't give up
  C
I won't give up on you
G       B7        A7sus2
  These dreams we share
    C
Someday they're gonna come true
G                  B7
  So I don't wanna see you cryin'
A7sus2                     C
  It's only dark until the sun starts risin'
G   B7         A7sus2
  I won't give up

I won't give up on you...
  C                   G B7 A7sus2 C
I won't give up on you...

[Verse 3]
G                    G
  The waves were, my only salvation
B7                B7
  We were living off the plantation
Em            A7sus2
  My papa was incarceration now
C      D
  Desperation Blues

[Verse 4]
G                        G
  Sand and trees were my only friends
B7                       B7
  Cause' mom's forgot to pay the rent, oh no
Em                          A7sus2
  I thought this life would never end
C      D
