Get It While You Can

Janis Joplin

 Verse 1:
 CEm
In this world, if you read the papers, Lord,
 FC
You know every--body's fighting on with each other.
 C
You got no one you can count on, baby,
 CBbF
Not even your own brother.
 CE
So if someone comes along,
 FG#
He's gonna give you some love and affection

 Cborus:
 CBbF
I'd say get it while you can, yeah!   
 CBbF
Honey, get it while you can,   
 CGm
Hey, hey, get it while you can,  
 AmG
Don't you turn your back on love, no, no!

 Verse 2:
 CEm
Don't you know when you're loving anybody, baby,
 FC
  You're taking a gamble on a little sorrow,
 C
But then who cares, baby,
 CBbF
'Cause we may not be here to--morrow, no.
 CE
And if anybody should come along,
 FG#
He gonna give you any love and affection,

 Cborus:
 CBbF
I'd say get it while you can, yeah!   
 CBbF
Hey, hey, get it while you can,   
 CGm
Hey, hey, get it while you can.  
 Am
Don't you turn your back on love,
 GC
No no no, no no no no no.
