Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Just One  Lisa Shaffer

[C]Crowd gathered 'round a school bus
[G]3rd Street and Elm
[Am]The neighbor man said, "Officer
[G]I caught it all on film"
[C]I watched my little grandson
[G]Come so close to death
[F]By that man standin' right there
[D]With liquor on his breath

[C]Another little boy wasn't so lucky
[G]He was lyin' there in the street
[Am]His little lifeless body
[G]Beneath the yellow sheet
While the[C] young man was on the sidewalk
[G]Goin' through a sobriety check
[F]The crowd was turnin into a lynch mob
[D]When he raised up his hands and said

[G]I only had just one
[D]I swear that's the truth
[Em]That kid came outta nowhere
[C]There was nothing I could [D]do
[C]I couldn't swerve [G]I couldn't stop
[C]Now here I am as[G]king God
What have I[Am] done?
[D]I only had jus[G]t one     [C]
[C]A young momma burst through the crowd
[G]And pulled back that yellow sheet
[Am]Collapsed and started shakin' [G]uncontrollably
Searched [C]until she found that young man
[G]With her shattered eyes
[F]Then tore a hole into his soul
[D]As she screamed and cried
[G]I only had just one
[D]And you took him away
[Em]I hope this is something
[C]You relive every[D]day
[C]You coulda swerved and[G] you coulda stopped
[C]But you didn't now [G]look my God
What have y[Am]ou done?     [D]
[D]I only had [G]just one     [C]  [G]  [C]
I only had just one     [G]
