Soul One

Blind Melon

This is another great song by an underappreciated band. I pretty sure its played on a twelve string but it still sounds great on a six string. I only have the main guitar here, if you want the other guitar just improvise in E and it will sound cool. The intro/verse riff is awesome and its really what carries the song I think. Also just listen for the strum pattern for the fills/bridge...its pretty easy to get. Too bad more people dont realize how good they really were...

How come, girl was there when I needed one How come, girl was there when the song is done Some say, open your eyes to a brighter light Okay, open my arms, they were right
She was my soul one She felt like she was the only one She was the sun, the sky blue eyes She was my soul one
Inside, pain in my heart often made her cry Outside, I cursed the birds in the sugar sky How long take to realize she's the one How long until I find my lost and lonely soul one
She was my soul one She felt like the only one She was the sun, the sky blue eyes She was my soul one
Should of never taken the time 'Cause I found myself living a lonely lie You said you left to find yourself But I never, no I never got a chance to say goodbye.
She was my soul one I thought she was the only one I thought she was...
