Capo
3rd fret
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
             G
Yeah and the sun it tries to warn me
         C
Boy those wings are made of wax
          C              G
While the things I do to kill me
            D
They just tell me to relax

       G
But oh... cinderella
                                              C
All dressed up in all your boots and all your charms
            G
I’m not the fellow
                                            D
To protect you or to keep you from all your harm
    G            C         G
And I don’t know which is worse
               C
To wake up and see the sun
      D
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
      D
I’m pretty much just left the fool
     G
Damn... don’t the streets look empty though
       C
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

C G C G

    G            C         G
And I don’t know which is worse
               C
To wake up and see the sun
      D
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#.
