My guitar just confirmed what my ear told me: It's a simple 12-bar 
blues.  There are a few variations on the pattern, but the one I use 
is:

   E7 A7 E7 E7  A7 A7 E7 E7  B7 A7 E7 B7

Here's how it fits with the lyrics:


GIVE ME ONE REASON
On: Tracy Chapman, _New Beginning_
Words & Music: Tracy Chapman

INTRO: Blues progression (above)

        E7                             A7                        E7
CHORUS: Give me one reason to stay here and I'll turn right back around
        A7                                                       E7
        Give me one reason to stay here and I'll turn right back around
                 B7
        'Cause I don't want to leave you lonely
            A7                              E7   B7
        But you've got to make me change my mind

Baby I got your number and I know that you've got mine
Baby I got your number and I know that you've got mine
You can call me baby, you can call me anytime (but you got to call me)

CHORUS

I don't want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life
I don't want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night

This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
But I'm too old to go chasing you around, wasting my precious energy

CHORUS

Baby just give me one reason, give me just one reason why
Baby just give me one reason, give me just one reason why I should stay
Because I told you that I love you and there ain't no more to say

End on E7



                     Give Me One Reason
                  written by Tracy Chapman
            originally performed by Tracy Chapman
                 track #9 on "new beginning"

This song has a pretty intricate and difficult lead. 
However, it sounds really good when you can play it.  Tracy
plays the rhythm electric guitar (basic pattern is tabbed
below), and her guitarist plays the blues lead guitar.

Here are the lyrics and the basic chord progressions for the
song.  The guitar parts are tabbed below.

That's basically the entire song.  There are two more riffs
in the last two verses that I thought were neat.  Here they
are (sorry, I don't remember where they go, or what chords
support them).

riff 1:
-------14-------16-------18-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/15------/16------/18-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

riff 2:
-17b-17b-14-----------------14------------------------------------------17p14--------14----------------17---------------------------------16Bb18-------16B17r16-14-16B17r16-14-------------------------------------------------------------16---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There rest of the song is just a guitar ad lib.  So, that's
all everybody.  Have fun.
