Don't Give Up
Welcome to the Community!

i can't tell you how many times I played this song during medical school and residency. A good program picks the best instructors for its students and that is wonderful but I felt so stupid every rotation! This song kept me going.

capo III

In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail
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

F          Cmaj7             F9
     Don't give up - 'cos you have friends
F          C                    F9
     Don't give up - you're not beaten yet
F         C/E          F            G
     Don't give up - I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around
Never thought that I could be affected
Thought that we'd be 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

F9          C              F9
      Don't give up - you still have us
F           C/E                 F9
      Don't give up - we don't need much of anything
F           C /E             F                   G                 C
      Don't give up - 'cos somewhere there's a place where we belong

[ Tab from: ]
          G     G4 G
Rest your head
              C    F C
You worry too much
                   G     G4 G
It's going to be alright
     C         C7                  F        C
When times get rough, you can fall back on us, 
           C    G           C           F C
Don't give up,    please don't give up

        C                       G
Got to walk out of here, I can't take anymore
      C             C7              F 
Gonna stand on that bridge, keep my eyes down below
    C                     G
Whatever may come and whatever may go,
          C           G            C        
That river's flowing,    that river's flowing

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

F9         C              Am
     Don't give up - 'cos you have friends
F          C                     Am
     Don't give up - you're not the only one
F          C             F9
     Don't give up - no reason to be ashamed
F          C             F9
     Don't give up - you still have us
F          C                    F9
     Don't give up now - we're proud of who you are
F          C                       F9
     Don't give up - you know it's never been easy
F          C                  F            G
     Don't give up - 'cos I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong
