One Day at a Time Joe Walsh
Really nice distinctive Joe guitar work similar to his earlier stuff; plus it sure
sounds like Jeff and Ringo backing him up. At A chords at the end of the intro and verse
lines - add Asus4 variations to it. The times shown are elapsed time from the start;
chords by Marty Lurvey.
Intro X2 G / / / D / / / A / / / / / / / 0:14
Well you [G]know, I was always the [D]first to arrive at the [A]party,
Ooh.[G].. and the [D]last to leave the scene of the [A]crime.
Well it [G]started with a couple of [Bm]beers,
And it [G]went I don't know how many [B]years,
Like a [G]runaway train [A]headed for the end of the [D]line. 0:47

Well I [G]finally got around to ad[D]mit that I might have a [A]problem.
But I [G]thought it was just too damn [D]big of a mountain to [A]climb.
Well I [G]got down on my knees and said "[Bm]Hey!
I [G]just can't go on living this [B]way!"
Guess I [G]have to learn to live my [A]life one day at a [D]time. 1:19
[F]Oh[-] [C]yeah! [G] [-] [C] [A]One day at a [D]time!
[F]Oh[-] [C]yeah! [G] [-] [C] [A]One day at a [D]time! 1:35

Bridge, repeated 2:23
Well I f[G]inally got around to ad[D]mit that I was a [A]problem.
When I [G]used to put the blame on [D]everybody's shoulders but [A]mine.
All the [G]friends I used to run with are [Bm]gone,
Lord, I [G]hadn't planned on livin' this [B]long.
But I [G]finally learned to live my [A]life one day at a [D]time! 2:54
It was [G]something I was too blind to [Bm]see,
I got [G]help from something greater than [B]me...
And to[G]day I learned to live my [A]life one day at a [D]time! 3:18
