Don't give up

Year: 1986 - Album: Hit

In this proud land we grew up strong 
   Cm                 Bb/C    Cm 
We were wanted all along 
Bb/D    Eb          Ab/Eb Eb 
I was taught to fight, taught to win 
      Bb               Eb/Bb     Bb 
I never thought I could fail 
        Cm        Bb/C  Cm 
No fight left or so it seems 
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted 
I've changed my face, I've changed my name 
But no one wants you when you lose 
     Don't give up - 'cos you have friends 
Ab/F       Eb/G           Cm7/Ab 
     Don't give up - you're not beaten yet 
Ab/F       Eb/G                 Cm/Ab 
     Don't give up - I know you can make it good 
Ab/F       Eb/G        Ab           Bb 
Though I saw it all around 
Never thought I could be affected 
Thought that we'd be the last to go 
It is so strange the way things turn 
Drove the night toward my home 
The place that I was born, on the lakeside 
As daylight broke, I saw the earth 
The trees had burned down to the ground 
don't give up - you still have us 
don't give up - we don't need much of anything 
don't give up - 'cos somewhere there's a place where we belong 
		     Ab                  Bm             Eb      Ab/Eb-Eb 
Rest your head 
	  Bb   Eb/Bb-Bb 
You worry too much 
	      Eb   Ab/Eb-Eb 
It's going to be alright 
                 Bb    Eb/Bb Bb 
When times get rough, you can fall back on us,  
     Eb                            Ab      Eb 
Don't give up,    please don't give up 
           Eb  Bb        Eb            Ab/Eb-Eb 
Got to walk out of here, I can't take anymore 
       Eb                        Bb 
Going to stand on that bridge, keep my eyes down below 
         Eb                            Ab 
Whatever may come and whatever may go, 
    Eb                    Bb 
That river's flowing,    that river's flowing 
             Eb       Bb              Eb       Ab/Eb-Eb   
Moved on to another town 
Tried hard to settle down 
For every job, so many men 
So many men no-one needs 
Don't give up - 'cos you have friends 
Don't give up - you're not the only one 
Don't give up - no reason to be ashamed 
Don't give up - you still have us 
Don't give up now - we're proud of who you are 
Don't give up - you know it's never been easy 
Don't give up - 'cos I believe there's a place 
                       Ab                Bb 
There's a place where we belong 
Bb                       Eb 
End Section: 
Cm bass riff} 
Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up 
           Eb             F              Cm
