                by Sammy Hagar

        as played on the Van Halen Live CD

Verse 1:

Em     A                   D                G6  G  G6
I can see that you've got fire in your eyes

     A                 D        Dsus4 D Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
and pain inside your heart.

Em        A                   D                G6
So many things have come and torn your world apart.

                            A          Fill 1
So baby, baby,  Don't give up...

You've got to give a little.

If you want faith,

You've got to believe a little.

Can you change a little?

You've got to give...to live.

Verse 2: (same pattern as Verse 1)

An empty hand, reaching out for someone.
An empty heart, takes so little to fill.
It's so much easier, to push instead of pull.
So baby, baby. Don't give up.

Chorus

Bridge:

Em                                G6
Each man's a country, in his own right.

Em
Everybody needs a friend.

D                        G6
One friend, one god, one country,

              A        Fill 1
No man need defend.

Verse 3 (same pattern as Verses 1 & 2)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/v/van_halen/give_to_live_tab.html ]
I believe, in fate and destination.
So much of that lies in our own hands.
So if you know what you want, well then you can go on out and get it.
But baby, baby...Oh baby don't you ever give up.


                 D          G
But if you want love,

                   A      Asus4 A Asus4 A
You got to give a little.

             D          G
If you want faith,

                      A           Fill 2
You got to believe a little.

D            Em
If you want peace,

         A            Em
Can you change a little?

D           G                  A Asus4 A Asus4 A
If you want love you got to give

D           G               A             Asus4 A Asus4 A
If you want love, you want faith, you want to believe.

      D                             G                        A     Asus4 A
You want to love somebody, want to share your love, want to give your love.

D                  G
Give a little bit, give a little bit,

A
give a little bit, give a little bit,

D                  G
Give a little bit, give a little bit,

A                                        D
give a little bit, give a little bit.

G        A Asus4 A Asus4 A
Give to live.

       D             G
You've got to give, give to live

A                                                            D  G  A
Give a little bit, give a little bit, give a little bit.

                       D       G       A
You've got to give to live.

D                   G                 A
You've got to give, I've got to give, we've got to give to live.

D     G     A     Fill2  D

The chords are:

        E A D G B E
A       X 0 2 2 2 0
Asus4   X X 2 2 3 0
D       X X 0 2 3 2
Dsus4   X X 0 2 3 3
Em      0 2 2 0 0 0
G       3 2 0 0 3 3
G6      3 2 0 0 3 0

This is a really cool song done acoustically.  IMHO, the version on the
Van Halen Live CD is much better than the version on Sammy's solo album.
I won't vouch for the accuracy of this transcription, as I am an engineer
and not a music major...With that in mind, I am welcome to any corrections
or questions :)
