When You Find the One  Melissa Etheridge

This is my first time doing this--there are bound to be plenty of mistakes, but here it is.
Chords used: G C D
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.
