ANOUK: One Word
Album: Hotel New York
Tabbed by: Evert Lancel

On CD the song is played in a lower tuning (Eb). I here put it in standard tuning. 
If you want to play along with the song, than you need to either tune your guitar 
half a note lower, or make a copy of the song in higher pitch, using some 
free sound editing software (Audacity). That's a lot easier than retuning all the 
time.

Chords in Standard Tuning:

D add9 sus4     x54030 (for short Dadd9..)
Am9           x05500 
Dsus2           xx0230
Asus2           x02200
Em7             022030 (I like 02x030, because the basses come out stronger)
Bbm7            x24232
G               355433 
Csus2           x35533 

The strumming rhythm is very important: The first short strums should be on the bass 
tones only and the short strums for the rest of the measure should emphasis the 
higher tones (while playing the base strings as well. Although it varies all the time 
(just listen well), in a 16th measure it is basically like this 
(V = strumming downwards, A = strumming upwards): 

|V-V-VAVA--VAVA--|

(VERSE)
Dsus2            Asus2
      I close my eyes
      Em7
And imagine you're here
                   Dsus2
Did it all seem so hopeless
          Asus2
Given the chance
Em7
I would ask

Forgive me
              Dsus2    Asus2    Em7        
I didn't do a thing to make you stay
               Bsus4   A add9.. Em7        
I didn't say a word to make you stay
                Bsus4 
If I would have known
             Asus2            Em7
Could I have tried to make it easier
                  Bm7            A
But I didn't do a thing or say a word
    G
One word

Dsus2                   Csus2                       Dsus2
       And I don't know why you're gone, now you're gone
                Csus2 
No beautiful goodbye
                        Dsus2
You will never leave my mind
                    Csus2                         Dsus2
And it turns out to be so much different than our dreams
Csus2                        Dadd9..
Now you're, you're a star in heaven

Am9  Dadd9..  Am9 

(VERSE)
Dsus2                Asus2
       My thoughts unsaid
Em7
Stuck in my head
                    Dsus2
And it all feels so useless
         Asus2  Em7
Never forget to give all I have
Forgive me
                Dsus2    Asus2    Em7
I couldn't do a thing to make you stay
                     Dsus2   Asus2    Em7
And I couldn't say a word to make you stay
                Dsus2 
If I could have known
             Asus2            Em7  
Could I have tried to make it easier
                    Bm7
But I couldn't do a thing
         A
Or say a word
    G
One word

Dsus2                 Csus2                       Dsus2 
     And I don't know why you're gone, now you're gone
               Csus2
No beautiful goodbey
                        Dsus2
You will never leave my mind
                    Csus2                         Dsus2   
And it turns out to be so much different than our dreams
