ok now for the chords and lyrics... verse 1
F Rolling around like a big rubber ball
AmWriting this song about some things that I saw
FTrying to stand like a big strong tough man
AmFinding out fast that I'm sinking in sin
chorus:
Bb FAll I got is nothing but a little bit of love
Bb CGonna give it to the people then they'll see,
Then they'll see verse 2
FSpinning the tops as the tables they turn
AmMade some mistakes but I still couldn't learn
FCovered my tracks, thought I was fine
AmGot no self control now I'm back here in line
chorus:
Bb FAll I got is nothing but a little bit of love
Bb C Gonna give it to the people then they'll see,
Then they'll see bridge:
F Am x4switch every 4\4measure
(meanwhile strange oprah-lady sounds are going) chorus:
Bb FAll I got is nothing but a little bit of love
Bb C Gonna give it to the people then they'll see,
Then they'll see thats pretty much it! thanks guys! rate please!!!
