One Step Closer To Home - The Alarm (Twist/Sharp)
=================================================

Intro: (v = downstroke, ^ = upstroke, . = pick separate strings)

GGG G G G D A D ADADA Em     G         G
v^v v v v v v v vvvvv v....  v........ v........

        D                    A
Back in seventyfive when the kid was on the line
       Em                        G
and he felt no pain 'cause there was none
         D                      A
He would bend in the wind, take in anything
              Em                G
like sniffin' roses, and it was all right
         Em               A
until he fell and cut his hand
        G               Bm
He just could not understand
         Em        D/F#         G        E
He ran away, blame pretence for defence
         A
or plain innocence

Said that's all right,
              G                     D        A     Em
the harder it fights, I'm one step closer to home
              G                     D        A     Em
The deeper it bites , I'm one step closer to home
                   G                D
And you can tie my hands or whip my back
             G                      D
I can't give in, till the sky turns black
           G                   D        G    D A D
I may get lost - I'm one step closer to home


ADADA Em G  (As in the Intro.)

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/a/alarm/one_step_closer_to_home_crd.html ]
            D                    A
Oh yeah, he ran, hitched rides, travelled light
         Em                   G
left his bags behind, said he lost them
        D                 A
He said that's O.K. I got money and a smile
     Em                       G
from place to place, and they don't mind
             Em               A
I've had the heads of businessmen
           A                      Bm
and I just gave them right back again
         Em          D/F#    G          Em
I've got no need for device, disguise
         A
or plain compromise

Said that's all right,
               G                   D        A     Em
the tougher it gets, I'm one step closer to home
                G                    D        A     Em
the more that I sweat, I'm one step closer to home
                   G                D
And you can tie my hands or whip my back
             G                      D
I can't give in, till the sky turns black
           G                   D        G    D A D
I may get lost - I'm one step closer to home


Bm                                          D
   There ain't no need for this, at all, at all

   surely you can help me out, say
Em                         F#m
   I know a lot of people, just like you
G                      Bm
plenty to live for and nothing to lose, so
D                  A
tear it all down, smash it all up
D                                 A
break it all down, and then just stop
            D A D A
build it up
            D  A
build it up
            D  A
build it up
                   D                        A
and the tougher it gets and the more that I sweat
                   D                        G
and the harder it fights and the deeper it bites


              D        A     Em
I'm one step closer to home
              G
the harder it fights
              D        A
I'm one step closer to home
                   G                D
And you can tie my hands or whip my back
             G                      D
I can't give in, till the sky turns black
           G                   D        G    D A D
I may get lost - I'm one step closer to home
