David Gray – You’re the One I Love, words and chords

What a great song! We have been playing it again and it is one of those songs that  is always good to hear. The chords aren’t too difficult although all that C to F is always a challenge and Dm for some reason is one of those chords that everyone has trouble with. Lyrically the song is perfect, more like poetry. That is a great line ‘running through this life like a field of snow’. Took me ages to get that but I think it means the way snow makes everything look good.

Great song. Medium tempo. Good old down down up up down strum’ll do ya.

 David Gray - The One I Love
       C
 Gonna close my eyes
          G
 Girl and watch you go
           F               Dm
 Running through this life darling
        C
 Like a field of snow
        C
 As the tracer glides
        G
 In its graceful arc
         F               Dm
 Send a little prayer out to ya
            C
 Across the falling dark
          F
 Tell the repo man
         Dm
 And the stars above
            C           C       
 You're the one I love, yeah
         C
 Perfect summers night
       G
 Not a wind that breathes
         F               
 Just the bullets whispering gentle
             C
 'mongst the new green leaves
                  C
 There's things I might have said
      G
 Only wish I could
          F            Dm
 Now I'm leaking life faster
           C
 Then I'm leaking blood
          F
 Tell the repo man
         Dm
 And the stars above (that)
            C
 You're the one I love
            G
 You're the one I love

     Dm         F      Am F C F Am F
 The one I love   whoo-hoo!
                  Whoo-hoo!

           C
 Don't see Elysium
              G
 Don't see no fiery hell
           F             
 Just the lights up bright baby
         C
 In this bay hotel
           C
 Next wave coming in
         G
 Like an ocean roar
           F             Dm
 Won't you take my hand darling
          C
 On that old dancefloor
        F
 We can twist and shout
        Dm
 Do the turtle dove
                C
 And you're the one I love
            G
 You're the one I love

     Dm        F   Am F C F Am F ...G
 The one I love    whoo-hoo!
                  Whoo-hooo!
