When You Find The One  Melissa Etheridge

I[G] was a slick mid-[C]western gal
on a lon[G]g, hard road into so[C]uthern Cal
[G]Couldn't find any crime
in filling[C] up all my time
I had the d[G]evil in my bones
and an a[C]ngel on my mind

And I d[D]rank up all the movies
and I s[C]earched for happy endings
I tu[D]rned love inside out
'till I was pe[C]rfectly pretending
[D]Still I believed it could be t[C]rue

When you fi[D]nd the o[G]ne
there's no q[D]uestionin[C]g the sile[G]nce
all is sa[D]id and do[G]ne
when you find the o[C]ne

when you find the one

[G]   [C]   [G]   [C]                            
Verse Two:
You could s[G]ay that I was crazy
I was tha[C]t kind of girl
I had to o[G]pen up alot of oysters
before I f[C]ound myself a pearl
I had to k[G]iss alot of frogs
to find my g[C]rass was green enough
Had to be fa[G]ce down in the gutter
to see what [C]is and isn't love

Bridge two:
then I wo[D]ke from all the dreaming
to your t[C]aste and to your laughter
I c[D]ried 'till I was dry
and now I l[C]ive my ever-after
[D]I believe I always k[C]new

Chorus Two:
When you f[D]ind the o[G]ne
there's no q[D]uestioni[C]ng the sil[G]ence
all is s[D]aid and do[G]ne
when you find the o[C]ne
and when you [D]make the cho[G]ice
to belie[D]ve in you[G]r exi[C]stence
with he[C]llo, you will know....[C]
when you find the one [G]

[G]   [C]   [G]   [C]                            
I believ[G]ed it could be tr[C]ue, I belie[G]ve, I always kne[C]w (2x)

Repeat Chorus two to end (1x)

[G]   [C]                                  
With he[G]llo, you will kno[C]w...

And that's it (I hope, sort of) email me if you want to tell me exactly how it goes.
I know that she doesn't strum all the way through, but that's the only way I could play it.
