Song: To Be The One
Artist: Ryan Adams
Album: Heartbreaker
Tuning: Standard (Capo on 3rd, so the G C and D are actually Ab Eb and Db)

Intro: (one |...| represents one beat) so it's like this:

1   2   3   4and  1   2   3   4and
G | G | G | G C | G | G | G | G C | 

And he just picks the chords lightly, and plays harmonica on top of it.
The rest of the song goes like this:

         G                            C
Well the pills I got they ask me lets go out for a while
        G                                   C
And the knives up in the kitchen are all too dull to smile
Yeah and the sun it tries to warn me
Boy those wings are made of wax
          C              G
While the things I do to kill me
They just tell me to relax

But oh... cinderella
All dressed up in all your boots and all your charms
I’m not the fellow
To protect you or to keep you from all your harm
    G            C         G
And I don’t know which is worse
To wake up and see the sun
Or to be the one be the one
       G   C       G
Be the one that’s gone

C  G 

(he kind of starts strumming here, but still light)

        G                C     G
And the empty bottle it misses you
         G                     C            G
Yeah and I’m the one that it’s talking to
         G                     C         G
And with you and I just barely strangers
I’m pretty much just left the fool
Damn... don’t the streets look empty though
Just wandering round here without you

       C               G                      C                G
Oh the empty bottle it misses you and I’m the one it’s talking to


    G            C         G
And I don’t know which is worse
To wake up and see the sun
Or to be the one be the one
       G   C      G
be the one that’s gone

C G C G 

End on G

Cheers, Max

Sounds good to me. Only correction is that with a capo on the 3rd fret, G C D is actually A#, D#, F. So the key is A#.
