THE ONLY ONE by Tracy Chapman
From the Album: "Telling Stories"
Tabbed by Izzylou

Note: This is possible the prettiest song on the album, with Emmylou
Harris singing harmony... Anyway, in the parenthese are the hammer-ons
and pull offs she does to reach the next chord. The letters are the string
name, and the numbers the frets.
Hope that makes any sense to anyone other than me... She finger-picks it,
I strum it. Either way works.  - Izzylou 
 
Intro: G..... G, C9 (A-3-2-0-2) G 
G       (A-2-0-2)
She was the only one
C9   (A-3-2-0-2) G
Of my flesh and blood
G        (A-2-0-2)
Now I have no calling
C9      (A-3-2-0-2)  G
I can do no worldly good

C9       Em7     G    (A-2-0-2)
Mmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm
C9       Em7     Dsus4   C9 (A-3-2-0-2) G
Mmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm

      C9
I sit silent
       Em7
I sit mourning
       G                C9
I sit listless all the day
      Em7             G
I've mostly lost the voice to speak
         C9
And any words to say except
C9                   (A-3-2-0-2) G
Does heaven have enough angels yet?

C9        Em7     G  
Mmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm
C9        Em7     Dsus4    C9 (A-3-2-0-2) G
Mmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm

           C9
I've gone hard
              Em7 
And I've gone cold
                  G                           C9
I can't make the pieces of this cracked life fit
         Em7                     G
Please forgive me for wanting to know
C9                   (A-3-2-0-2) G
Does heaven have enough angels yet?

C9         Em7     G     (A-2-0-2)
Mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm
C9         Em7     Dsus4   C9 (A-3-2-0-2) G
Mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm

C9           Em7
Together Oh together
    G                      C9
No there'll be no more of that
                 Em7
But I would not dare for myself to ask
C9                   (A-3-2-0-2) G
Does heaven have enough angels yet?

C9         Em7     G     (A-2-0-2)
Mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm
C9         Em7     Dsus4   C9 (A-3-2-0-2) G
Mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm

G          (A-2-0-2)
She was the only one
C9    (A-3-2-0-2) G
Of my flesh and blood
G           (A-2-0-2)
Sometimes I hear her calling
C9            (A-3-2-0-2) G 
Straight from the house of God

C9         Em7     G  (A-2-0-2)
Mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm 
C9         Em7     Dsus4  C9 (A-3-2-0-2) G 
Mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm
