Intro; C G Am F  2x

C         G                 Am
See the stone set in your eyes         
         F                   C
See the thorn twist in your side
          G       Am    F
And I'll wait for you
C            G                Am
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
             F                   C
On a bed of nails, she makes me wait
          G        Am      F
And I'll wait, without you--
             C    G              Am     F 
With or without you, with or without you

C             G                  Am
Through the storm we reach the shore
             F              C
You give it all but I want more
          G        Am   F
And I'll wait for you

         C              G            Am            F
And you give yourself away, and you give yourself away
         C              G
And you give, And you give,
         Am            F
And you give yourself away

            C      G         Am           F
With or without you, with or without you I--
         C   G             Am     F
I can't live-- with or without you

C  G  Am  F 

C              G
My hands are tied, 
Am        F                     C
my body bruised, she's got me with
            G        Am              F
nothing to win, and nothing left to lose

         C             G
And you give yourself away
         Am            F
And you give yourself away
         C              G
And you give, And you give,
         Am            F
And you give yourself away

             C      G
With or without you,
         Am           F
With or without you I--
         C   G             Am     F    C.   
I can't live-- with or without you.

  4. I think the chords are right, but I found a mistake in the lyrics, it should be like this after “You give it all but I want more and I’ll wait for you”… :

    With or without you, with or without you I–
    D A Bm G
    I can’t live– with or without you

    D A Bm G

    D A Bm G
    And you give yourself away, and you give yourself away
    D A
    And you give, And you give,
    Bm G
    And you give yourself away

    • A small correction to Marine’s correction, above.

      Leading in to the section she added, the lyrics are:

      “You give it all but I want more, and I’m waiting for you”
