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"

Verse 1:

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

Instrumental break:

Verse 3:

 Ab    Db Gb Ab       Db  Gb Ab   Db  Gb  Ab   Db  Gb [continue]
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
    Db                  Eb [N.C.]
But baby, you know that I
                   Ab   Db  Gb   Ab   Db  Gb
Can only give you everything

Coda:

(rant over Ab  Db Gb chord progression):

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