Don't Give Up on Me · 9 July 2003

A                                     D                   A
I played the talent show just the other night
A                                       E
When at the bar erupted a fight
A                                  D                      A
Then a couple of guys started heckling me
E                                                  A
Maybe the singing life wasn’t for me
[Spoken] I heard myself say

     Don’t give up on me, I won’t give up on you
     You know there’s not a thing we can’t do
     Don’t you listen to them, they’re just a couple of fools
     Just believe in us – me and you.

Just the other day, I said to my wife
I can’t believe I messed up your life
Singin’ don’t pay the bills but I can’t do much more
I won’t blame you if you walk out the door
[Spoken] Then I heard her say


I finally signed a contract and I cut a CD
I can’t believe they line up to see me
Sometimes voices of the past start to heckling
That’s the cue for me to start my singing
[Spoken] And I sing


Chorus (sung a cappella)
