Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

i can only give you everything   Them

Heretical as it may seem, I wouldn't trade this demented punker (from
_Them Again_) for all of _Astral Weeks_.  Covered by countless garage
bands (including the fledgling MC5 - beat *that* for punk credentials)
although the version I heard most often as a beat-crazed teen was by
the Bram Rigg Set.  Killer fuzz guitar riff so simple anyone can play
it - which of course was the entire idea.  -- AWR

                    "I Can Only Give You Everything"

	G        C    F   G         C    F    G   C  F  G   C  F [continue]
	I can't give you more than what I've got
	You can't expect to get what I have not
	I... can only give you lovin' 'til the sun goes down
	And... until the leaves of summer turn to shades of brown
	   C           D
	I try   and I try
	     C                  D [N.C.]
	But baby, you know that I
	                   G     C  F   G   C  F
	Can only give you everything

Verse 2 (organ enters):

	Why can't I get you to understand
	'Cause after all I am just a man
	You... are on my mind when stars appear and shadows fall
	And... when every little flower blooms and bluebirds call
	I try   and I try
	But baby, you know that I
	Can only give you everything

	I'll do anything you want me to do
	'Cause I don't want to know this life without you
	Oh... don't ever go and leave me in this world alone
	I'd... be like a little child if I was on my own
	  Db          Eb
	I try   and I try

	Can only give you everything


	(rant over Ab  Db Gb chord progression):

	Everything, baby
	A little bit of this
	A little bit of that
	Everything, oh...
