Im The Only One Chords

   
There's another version of this song on here, but the title is wrong and the little riff is off 
as well. 
I have learned this sonically, so its correct to the note.

*~ craziegurl215@aol.com ~*

-----
Off her hit album:
number one, "I'm the Only One"

This song sounds best with one person *preferrably a 12-string* does the opening riffs, then does the
chords while an electric guitar does the tabbing.

The verses have the same basic structure, but I'll outline the first verse for you.

INTRO: *tab it smoothly, not just note by note; give it a jazzy feel*

G -----------0-----| (strum G chord once up and down) |--0--0-----------| (strum G again, up and down)
D --------0--------|                                  |--------3--0-----|
A -----3-----------|                                  |-----------------|
E --------------3--|                                  |--------------3--|

REPEAT THAT ABOVE RIFF 4 TIMES, electric comes in with same tab...listen to CD
---
Verse 1:

Jazzily-strum G, and before the words, do the tabs above the lyrics

G -----------0-----|
D --------0--------|
A -----3-----------|
E --------------3--|
 ....................Please baby, can't you see, my mind's a burnin' hell

G -----------0-----|
D --------0--------|
A -----3-----------|
E --------------3--|
 ....................I've got razor's a-rippin, and tearin, and strippin, my heart apart as well

G -----------0-----|
D --------0--------|
A -----3-----------|
E --------------3--|
 ....................Tonight you told me that you ache for something new

G --0--0-----------|
D --------3--0-----|
A -----------------|
E --------------3--|
 ....................And some other woman is looking like something that might be good for you


-----
REFRAIN BEGINS WITH THIS RIFF, THEN STRAIGHT INTO THE CHORDS:

G -----------0---|
D --------0------|
A -----3---------|
E ---------------|

Am                             D        Dsus
Go on and hold her til the screamin is gone,
Am                             D          Dsus
Go on believe her, when she tells you nothing's wrong

----

Chorus: Do chords and the little riff w/both guitars

G                          F                      E
But I'm the only one who'd walk across a fire for you
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/melissa_etheridge/im_the_only_one_crd.html ]
(h=hammer)
G ---------------------------------|
D --2-h0-----2-h0-----2-h0---------|
A --------2--------2--------2------|
E ------------------------------3--|

And I'm the only one who'd drown in my desire for you

G -----------------------------|
D --2-h0-----2-h0-----2-h0-----|
A --------2--------2--------2--|
E -----------------------------|

    Am                                 C
Its only fear that makes you run, the demons that you're hiding from
     F                     C                    G
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one

REPEAT Verse Tabs with new lyrics

Please baby can't you see I'm trying to explain
I've been here before and I'm locking the door and I'm not going back again
Her eyes, and arms, and skin won't make it go away
You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow that holds you down today
