The Only One - HUey Lewis and the News - 1982

[Intro]
A5 B5 F#5
G5 A5 D5
A B5 F#5 G     x2
A5 D5

[Verse]
D                 Bm
He was always the toughest kid 
G                  G
But he never meant no harm 
D                 Bm
But looking back I could see his fate 
G                  G
Was tatooed on his arm 
D                 Bm
Walking through the courtyard 
G                  G
Always there to be seen 
D                 Bm
He and little Janie 
G                  G
Together they were the king and queen 

[Chorus]
A5     B5       F#5  G5    A5        D5
He was the only one, who ever really knew 
A   B5    F#5 G5  A5          D
He was the only one, what can we do 
A5     B5       F#5  G5    A5        D5
He was the only one, he always showed us how 
A   B5    F#5 G5  A5          D
He was the only one, where is he now 

[Verse]
D                 Bm
Three years later at the bus stop 
G                  G
I know I'll never forget 
D                 Bm
He looked smaller and real wasted 
G                  G
As he bummed a cigarette 
D                 Bm
And I asked him what he'd been doing 
G                  G
And how's little Janie anyway 
D                 Bm
Seems he was drunk, They had a fight 
G                  G
Janie got hurt and they took him away 

[Chorus]
A5     B5       F#5  G5    A5        D5
He was the only one, who ever really knew 
A   B5    F#5 G5  A5          D
He was the only one, what can we do 
A5     B5       F#5  G5    A5        D5
He was the only one, he always showed us how 
A   B5    F#5 G5  A5          D
He was the only one, where is he now 

[Bridge]
Bm                  A
I can still see him standing there 
D            G    
Just like yesterday 
Bm           A
Leaning on a '56 
D                  G
Giving his secrets away 
Bm          A
Is it any wonder 
D                G
I feel a little lonely 
Bm                A
He's not just the only one 
D                G
He's the one and only 

[Solo]
A5 B5 F#5
G5 A5 D5
A B5 F#5 G     x3
A5 D5

A5 B5 F#5
G5 A5 D5
A B5 F#5 G     x3
B5 A5

[Verse]
D                 Bm
I heard about the accident 
G                  G
There's not much left to say 
D                 Bm
He wandered out in the middle of the freeway 
G                  G
It must have happened right away 
D                 Bm
And I though about what a shame it was 
G                  G
Now that it's all said and done 
D                 Bm
And it may sound strange, But even now 
G                  G
He's still the only one 

[Chorus]
A5     B5       F#5  G5    A5        D5
He was the only one, who ever really knew 
A   B5    F#5 G5  A5          D
He was the only one, what can we do 
A5     B5       F#5  G5    A5        D5
He was the only one, he always showed us how 
A   B5    F#5 G5  A5          D
He was the only one, where is he now...Repeat and fade
