One Man  Richard Marx

Transcribed by Sherryk Koswara
Artist: Richard Marx
Title: One Man
Album: Paid Vacation (1994)
Standard Tuning: EADGBe
[E] [B] [C#m] [A]  
[E] [B] [A] [A-E]  
It's a [E]peaceful thing
To know that [A]freedom as a [B]rule belongs to [E]me
There's something [E]very wrong
When the [A]colour of a [B]man is all you [E]see
After [C#m]all this time
How can a [F#m]single voice [B]explain
Any [C#m]reason for the [A]pain we all have [F#m]seen
It's not a [A]dream
[E] One man[B] stood tall
[C#m] And faced the devil with his [A]back to the wall
An[E]d took one step
Clo[B]ser to Heaven ab[A]ove[E]
( Tab from: )
So he [E]took a stand
And walked where [A]no one else would [B]dare to even [E]try
It was the [E]only way
If not for [A]bravery the [B]soul would surely [E]die
And right [C#m]before my eyes he gave his [F#m]life unselfish[B]ly
So that [C#m]all the father's [A]children could be [F#m]free
Like you and me,[A] yeah
[F#m]Before his work[B] is done
We've got to [E]put an end to this [C#m]game of
Choosing [A]sides[A-Ab-F#m]
I want us to be [B]one
And I [C#m]won't let it [A]go
Till it's [F#m]over
I'm here waitin[E]g
[Em] [B] [C#m] [A]  
[Em] [B] [A]  
(Chorus) 1.5 Steps Up
[G] One man[D] stood tall
[Em] And faced the devil with his [C]back to the wall
An[G]d took one step
Clo[D]ser to Heaven ab[C]ove[G]
[G] One man[D] was tall
[Em] Faced the devil.[C].. with his back to the [G]wall
One step clo[D]ser to Heaven ab[C]ove[G]
[G] [D] [Em] [C]  
[G] [D] [C]  
[G] One man[D] stood tall
[Em] [C] With his back to the [G]wall
Oo-[D]oh[C] [G]
(Repeat And Fade)
