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"
(Van Morrison)
(fuzz guitar (4X; bass and drums enter 3rd time)):
[(G)] v v [(C)] v [(F)] v

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
I t[C]ry and I t[D]ry
C D (N.C.)
But baby, you know that I
Can only give you e[G]veryth[C]ing[F] [G] [C] [F]
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:
(organ solo over intro riff, 7X)
[G] [Eb]  
[/] [/] [/] [/]  
(key changes to Ab)
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
I [Db]try and I [Eb]try
Db Eb (N.C.)
But baby, you know that I
Can only give you e[Ab]veryt[Db]hing[Gb] [Ab] [Db] [Gb]
(rant over Ab Db Gb chord progression):
Everything, baby
A little bit of this
A little bit of that
Everything, oh...
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
