To Be the One  Ryan Adams

Tuning: Standard (Capo on 3rd, so the G C and D are actually Ab Eb and Db)
Intro: (one ... represents one beat) so it's like this:
[1] [2] [3] [4and] [1] [2] [3] [4and]  
[G] [G] [G] [G] [C] [G] [G] [G] [G] [C]  
And he just picks the chords lightly, and plays harmonica on top of it.
The rest of the song goes like this:
Well the [G]pills I got they ask me lets [C]go out for a while
And the [G]knives up in the kitchen are all too[C] dull to smile
Yeah and the [G]sun it tries to warn me
Boy those[C] wings are made of wax
While the [C]things I do to [G]kill me
They just te[D]ll me to relax
But oh.[G].. cinderella
All dressed up in all your boots and all your [C]charms
Iím not the [G]fellow
To protect you or to keep you from all your [D]harm
And [G]I donít know [C]which is w[G]orse
To wake up and [C]see the sun
Or to [D]be the one be the one
Be the [G]one [C]thatís g[G]one
[C] [G]  
(he kind of starts strumming here, but still light)
And the [G]empty bottle it m[C]isses [G]you
Yeah and [G]Iím the one that itís [C]talking to[G]
And with [G]you and I just barely [C]strangers[G]
Iím pr[D]etty much just left the fool
Damn.[G].. donít the streets look empty though
Just wa[C]ndering round here without you
Oh the [C]empty bottle it [G]misses you and Iím the [C]one itís talking [G]to
[C] [G] [C] [G]  
And [G]I donít know [C]which is w[G]orse
To wake up and [C]see the sun
Or to [D]be the one be the one
be the [G]one [C]thatís [G]gone
[C] [G] [C] [G]  
End on G
