You Can Get It If You Really Want


by Jimmy Cliff
C:	You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try
Til you succeed at last

C - - - / F - - - /  x2  /  x2  / C - - - / G - - - / 
F - - - / G - - - / C - - - / F - - - /  x2  //

Persecution you must bear
Win or lose you got to get your share
Got your mind set on a dream
You can get it tho' hard it may seem

C - G - / F - - - /  x2  / Em - - - / F - - - / G - - - /     //

 C:	You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try
Til you succeed at last

Rome was not built in a day
Opposition will come your way
But the harder the battle you see
It's the sweeter the victory

 C:	You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try
Til you succeed at last

 B:	( C - - - / Eb - - - / F - - - / G F Eb Bb //  (2x)

 C:	You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try
Til you succeed at last

 C:	(Chorus)
