		The One - Luka Bloom (Riverside)
		________________________________

Some Notes:

This song is about Shane McGowan, former singer of The Pogues.

It's one of the few songs Luka Bloom plays in standard tuning (usually he
plays in some open D tuning, DADGAD ). Anyway, the song is in 3/4 measures or
something of the kind (6/8?), played pretty fast.

The strumming is pretty simple: (d=downstroke, u=upstroke)

 |     |     |
 d dudud dudud... etc. during verse & first line of the chorus.
 ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
 |     |     |
 dudududududud... etc. during the second line of the chorus.
 ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^         Emphasize the downstrokes. Beats are indicated
		       underneath the lyrics.

The end of the first line of the chorus is played like this:

1)

|Em   |Em   |Em7  |Em7 Em6 Em
|     |     |     0---0---0----|
|0    |0    |3      3---1---0--|
|     |     |      0---0---0---|
|     |     |      2---2---2---|
|     |     |      2---2---2---|
|     |     |      0---0---0---|
d dudud dudud dudud   d   d
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^   ^   ^

and the end of the 2nd & 4th lines of the verse like this:

2)

|Am   |Am   |Em     Em6 |Em     Em6
|     |     0---0-0-0---0---0-0-0-|
|1    |1    0---0-0-1---0---0-0-1-|
|     |     0---0-0-0---0---0-0-0-|
|     |     2---2-2-2---2---2-2-2-|
|     |     2---2-2-2---2---2-2-2-|
|     |     0---0-0-0---0---0-0-0-|
d dudud dudud   d u d   d   d   d

|Am      |%          |C       |%       |Em  |%  |Em7|%
  Do you really want to be another dead hero?

[Verse:]

Say they want you to survive, but they demand this madness of you

[Chorus 1:]

Why should you be the one ...

[Verse:]

I love your music and I love your songs, I love the wild things in your head
I want you here with us, helping us to stick to this mad world
But for so many years now this habit's been forming and so many others have
	failed
You made friends with that devil, now he feels a little kinder to face

[Chorus 2:]

Why should you be the one ...

[Verse:]

I think of the young ones who make their way home through the night after
	one of your shows
Their lives a little richer for having been touched by you
They day dance and they sweat and they call out your name, the exitement
	just spills out and flows
You've been singing your guts out, is that not enough to do?

[Chorus 1:]

Why should you be the one ...

Why should you be the one ...

Why should you be the one ...
|Am      |%          |C       |%       |Em (ring... )
  Do you really want to be another dead hero?
^ ^  ^   ^  ^   ^    ^  ^  ^  ^   ^^   ^
