                this song is flatpicked. for those of you who do not know what that is,
you fret a chord, hit the root note then strum all strings below it and
sometimes people will pick the string under the root note with it
alternately as done in this song. here is a tab for how it is done.


u-upstrum
d-downstrum
p-pick string

this is how I strum this song

count 1 e & a  2 e & a           1 e & a  2 e & a

ok now for the chords and lyrics...

verse 1
F                                    
Rolling around like a big rubber ball
Am
Writing this song about some things that I saw
F
Trying to stand like a big strong tough man
Am
Finding out fast that I'm sinking in sin

chorus:
Bb                         F
All 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

verse 2
F
Spinning the tops as the tables they turn
Am
Made some mistakes but I still couldn't learn
F
Covered my tracks, thought I was fine
Am
Got no self control now I'm back here in line


chorus:
Bb                         F
All 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 x4
switch every  4\4measure
(meanwhile strange oprah-lady sounds are going)


chorus:
Bb                         F
All 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
