Johnny Cash
One(American Recordings IV)
By Marcel Veltman

Johnny Cash's version of this U2 song shows the way to mediocre musicians like myself
how to do it just as convincingly without unconvenient fingering on weird tunings and
without incredible range of voice. Brilliant.


[Intro]

Am  D  F  G


[Verse]

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

   
[Chorus]

         C
You say
         Am
One love
         F
One life
                    C
When it's one need
         
in the night
  
It's one love
           Am
We get to share it
     F
It leaves you baby
              C
If you don't care for it

         
[Instrumental]   

Am  D  F  G


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

         C
Well it's 
          Am
too late 
        F
Tonight
                     C  
To drag the past out
                 C
Into the light

We're one
          Am
But we're not the same
            F
We get to carry each other
C
Carry each other
 
One
     

[Instrumental]   

Am  D  F  G

         
[Verse]

Am                      D       
Have you come here for forgiveness
F                           G
Have you come to raise the dead
Am                           D
Have you come here to play Jesus
F                       G
To the lepers in your head


[Chorus]

          С       
Did I ask 
            Am
too much
                F
More than a lot

You gave me nothing 
    C                
Now it's all I got

We're one
           Am
But we're not the same
   F
We hurt each other
         C
Then we do it again

You say
 
 
[Bridge]

C 
Love is a temple
Am
Love a higher law
C
Love is a temple
Am
Love the higher law
C
You ask me to enter
G
But then you make me crawl
                          F
And I can't be holding on
                  
To what you got
                     C
When all you got is hurt
  
C  
  One love
Am  
  One blood
F  
  One life
C  
  You got to do what you should
C
  One life
Am  
  With each other
F  
  Sisters
C  
  Brothers
C     
  One life
Am  
  But we're not the same
F  
  We get to carry each other
C  
  Carry each other
C       Am   F    C
  One
C       Am   F    C
  One.

Not sure what you mean by "Johnny Cash's version of this U2 song shows the way to mediocre musicians like myself
how to do it just as convincingly without unconvenient fingering on weird tunings and
without incredible range of voice." These chords are not all that different from the actual chords used by U2 and I believe even Johny used the actual chords which are Dsus2 in place of D which most would say is an easier chord -xx0230- and Fmaj7 -xx3210- which many also find easier than an F bar. Being somewhat of a vocalist, I also think the range is not average on either version seeing as how they are in the same key. Johnny just sings it an octave lower than Bono. I would not say you are a mediocre musician either. Many would love to be able to pick out chords the way you did. Sorry I did not mean for this comment to seem negative. I think you did a really good job. That's why I gave it four stars. I hope you plan to post more.
