One Tab

   
Tabbed by:Darragh O' Brien

Tuning:EADGBe

This is my version of the U2 song "One." It is one of the great songs of our time, and
this is a relatively simple version, geared towards an acoustic, unplugged sort of set
up. I took the intro and first verse/chorus from the Elevation tour, and the rhythm
guitar and outro from the studio version. It should be noted that the Elevation tour
version is down tuned, not sure what to... See below for where to come in with the
various chords.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/u/u2/one_tab_ver_3.html ]
   Intro, verse 1
 Am         ' Dsus2     ' Fmaj7     ' G                 and back to Am and so on

  Verse 2 (Rhythm guitar in background, it's like this for much of the rest of the song,
if you want the lead guitar, I'm sure there's a tab somewhere on the net, this song has
been tabbed so many times...) 
   Am               Dsus2           F               G       Or something like that

Am                  Dsus2
Is it getting better
Fmaj7                  G
Or do you feel the same
Am                               Dsus2
Will it make it easier on you now
Fmaj7                   G
You got someone to blame

        C
You say
        Am
One love
        Fmaj7
One life
                   C
When it's one need
            C
In the night
        Am
One love
                  Fmaj7
We get to share it
                         C
It leaves you baby if you
                 Am Dsus2 F G(bar-chord)
Don't care for it
(All in bar chords from here on.)

Am                  Dsus2
Did I Disappoint you?
F                                 G
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
Am                             Dsus2
You act like you never had love
F                            G
And you want me to go without

         C
Well it's
         B Am
Too late
         G F
Tonight

                       C
To drag the past out into the light
C      
We're one
C    B   Am
But we're not the same
   Am  G  F  
We get to carry each other
C
Carry each other
Am  Dsus2 F G (Bar chords)
One

{same as above verse)
Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head.

(Same as above choruses)
Did I ask too much?
More than a lot?
You gave me nothing now it's
All I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we,
Hurt each other and we do it again
You say

C               B Am
Love is a temple
                B  C
Love the higher law
                B Am
Love is a temple
                B  C
Love the higher law
    C
You ask me to enter
    G
But then you made me crawl
    G                   F
and I can't be holding on


                                       C
To what you got, when all you got is hurt

(Same as above choruses)
One love
One blood
One life you got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters
Brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One
(Bring in the outro about here)
