Transcription by Bahram ( Urkman@frankfurt.netsurf.de )


Intro : |D(9)- - -|D(9)- - D|D(9)- - -|D(9)- - D|

Verse 1 :

   G                                      G
I gave two teeth in a teenage brawl, to a girl whose name I can't recall
D                       D
    Then we broke up
   G                                  G
I gave a knee to the football team chasing that high school state champ dream
D                      D
    We almost won
Bm            A                G        D/F#
I gave junior college almost a year
       Em                Bm                A4               A
Then I gave a Greyhound twenty bucks, and that's how I got here


Chorus :

        G  A    D           G        A     D
I give all my money, for a slice of daily bread
        G     A     Bm          G            A
I give forty honest hours, to a boss I never met
      G        A       D            G      A      Bm
And I gave my soul to Jesus, at the age of twenty-two
          G                  D/F#         Em   D/F#   A4    A
So there ain't much left to offer, but I give   my   heart  to   you


Intro : |D(9)- - -|D(9)- - D|


Verse 2 :

   G                                    G
I gave a beard and a head of hair to a boot camp corporal with a barbers chair
D                     D
   At Camp LeJeune
   G                                     G
I gave Uncle sam what he bargained for, twenty-four months not a minute more
D                            D
    I just didn't fit in
       Bm                  A               G    D/F#
Then I gave a high school friend of mine a call
       Em          Bm              A4               A
And we gave a body shop a try 'til we gave up last fall


Chorus :

        G  A    D           G        A     D
I give all my money, for a slice of daily bread
        G     A     Bm          G            A
I give forty honest hours, to a boss I never met
      G        A       D            G      A      Bm
And I gave my soul to Jesus, at the age of twenty-two
          G                  D/F#         Em   D/F#   A4    A
So there ain't much left to offer, but I give   my   heart  to   you

      G        A       D            G      A      Bm     Bm

          G                  D/F#         Em   D/F#   A4    A
So there ain't much left to offer, but I give   my   heart  to   you

Comments : I really love this song, because it's simply simple and great :-)
It also has great Lyrics in my opinion.
It sounds best with a flatpicking on an acoustic guitar. Try to play a G(6)
instead of the G in the line "So there ain't much ...". That sounds pretty
cool. Also try to play a D(9) instead of the D in some parts of the song, so
it doesn't sound the same all the time.
The Intro- and Outro Part : |D(9)- - -|D(9)- - D|  can be picked something
like that :

                      Hammer
                      /\
e |0-----------|0-----0-2---|
b |3--3--------|3--3----3---|
g |2-----2-----|2-------2---|
D |0-----------|0-------0---|
E |------------|------------|
A |------------|------------|
