Nothing Without You by Bebo Norman

This is exactly how he plays it. I learned it from his youtube lesson and with the help
of his original version I put it all together in this tab.

In the song you'll notice he does a hammer-on and pull-off in between each verse and
chorus (and the intro). He's doing it on the D string and with the capo on the second fret
he basically does 0h2 and then 2p0 while he's playing a D chord (you'll want to listen 
to the song to get the timing exactly right). Below the song I have the chords tabbed out,
and you'll notice that the hammer-on and pull-off is basically switching between his D 
and A Chord.

He tunes his guitar to DADGAD
Capo 2 (Key of E)
Intro:  D
Verse 1
            D                  A
Take these hands and lift them up
           Bm                                   G
For I have not the strength to praise you near enough
             D
For, I have nothing
         A      D
I have nothing without you

Verse 2
             D                 A
And take my voice and pour it out
        Bm                             G
Let it sing the songs of mercy I have found
             D
For, I have nothing
         A      D
I have nothing without you

Chorus
     D  A  G    D         D  A    G
And all my soul needs is all your love

To cover me, so all the world will see
             A       D
That I have nothing without you

Verse 3
         D                A
Take my body and build it up
           Bm                       G
May it be broken as an offering of love
            D
For I have nothing
        A       D
I have nothing without you


Chorus (with bridge at the end)

And all my soul needs is all your love
         Bm      D  A   G           D
To cover me, so all the world will see

With all my heart
           Bm A G
With all my soul
           Bm A Em
With all my mind
             A
And all the strength I can find

Verse 4

Take my time here on this earth
            Bm                       G
And let it glorify all that you are worth
          D
For I am nothing
      A       D
I am nothing without you

Specifics of the Song
Bebo Norman tunes his Guitar to DADGAD
Chords in DADGAD tuning (use Capo):
D =   XX0200
A =   X02200
Bm =  X24400
G =   5X0000
Em =  222000


I don't like to do a whole lot of tunings other than standard because I don't like
having to retune my guitar for each song. So I figured out how to play like he plays in
standard, and the tab for that is below. It's easier to play it in DADGAD like he does, 
but it's not so bad in standard either. Make sure you take off the capo though if you 
play the
song in standard.
