Just One Victory

Written by Todd Rundgren

Tabbed by PXL

Standard Tuning

An difficult song to tab as it was apparently recorded in the key of C and has 
since been performed live in the key of B. Each has their advantages, but seeing 
as how this is tabbed for acsoutic guitar and it is piano based, the key of C just 
works out better on the whole. To play it in B, simply move each Chord down one half step. 

Enjoy.

Intro/Bridge jazz chords are tabbed as follows:
Eb6/F - X 8 8 8 8 8
F6/G - X 10 10 10 10 10

Intro
           Eb6/F   F6/G           C
We've been waiting so long,
           Eb6/F   F6/G           C
We've been waiting so long,
           Eb6/F   F6/G           C
we've been waiting for the sun to rise and shine
F       C        Dm          G
Shining still to give us the will

Verse 1
        C    Cmaj7   Am          Em
Can you hear me, the sound of my voice?
     F       G               Dm      C
I am here to tell you I have made my choice
          C    Cmaj7   Am                Em
I've been listening to what's been going down
             F        G               Dm     C
There's just too much talk and gossip going 'round

Chorus 1
        Bb                           F    Em  Am  Dm
You may think that I'm a fool, but I know the answer
Bb                      F   Em  Am  Dm
Words become a tool, anyone can use them
Bb                           F    Em  Am Dm
Take the golden rule, as the best example
F              C         Dm          G
Eyes that have seen will know what I mean

Verse 2
    C        Cmaj7   Am                   Em
The time has come to take the bull by the horns
(Hold that line, baby hold that line
Get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
           F      G                   Dm    C
We've been so downhearted, we've been so forlorn
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying
So hold that line, baby hold that line)
       C  Cmaj7    Am           Em
We get weak and we want to give in
(Hold that line, baby hold that line
Get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
             F         G           Dm      C
But we still need each other if we want to win
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying
So hold that line, baby hold that line)

Chorus 2
       Bb                            F    Em  Am  Dm
If you don't know what to do about a world of trouble
Bb                             F    Em Am  Dm
You can pull it through if you need to and if
Bb                             F   Em Am  Dm
You believe it's true, it will surely happen
F       C         Dm           G
Shining still, to give us the will

Bridge
           Eb6/F   F6/G           C
We've been waiting so long,
           Eb6/F   F6/G           C
We've been waiting so long,
           Eb6/F   F6/G           C
we've been waiting for the sun to rise and shine
F       C        Dm          G
Shining still to give us the will
G             C       F           G
Bright as the day, to show us the way

Verse 3
C  Cmaj7 Am Em
Somehow, someday,
        F        G                 Dm     C
We need just one victory and we're on our way
C                  Cmaj7   Am                  Em
Prayin' for it all day and fightin' for it all night
        F        G                Dm   C
Give us just one victory, it will be alright

Chorus 3
Bb                               F  Em   Am  Dm
We may feel about to fall but we go down fighting
Bb                            F Em Am Dm
You will hear the call if you only listen
Bb                       F    Em Am Dm
Underneath it all we are here together
F       C         Dm          G
Shining still, to give us the will
G             C       F           G
Bright as the day, to show us the way

Outro
C  Cmaj7 Am Em
Somehow, someday,
(Hold that line, baby hold that line
Get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
        F        G                 Dm     C
We need just one victory and we're on our way
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying
So hold that line, baby hold that line)
C                  Cmaj7   Am                  Em
Prayin' for it all day and fightin' for it all night
(Hold that line, baby hold that line
Get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
        F        G                Dm   C
Give us just one victory, it will be alright
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying
So hold that line, baby hold that line)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Ive never seen or heard a close rendition of this classic. Anyone seen a good chart of "Love in Action" or "Someone to fall Back On"? They're both pretty simple but Todd can be tricky to get spot-on.
