Song: To Be The One
Artist: Ryan Adams
Album: Heartbreaker
Tuning: Standard  -  Capo on 3rd

The intro chord progression is also repeated during the harmonica parts throughout the song.
These chords are each one beat.  He picks various parts of these chords, but you could strum them as well.
On the intro, the C is left off the 4th time as he goes into "well the pills"...

Simplified version of these looks like this:

   G    Cmaj9   C6/9    C      G

e|-3------3------3------3------3------|
B|-0-----0h1-----1------1------0------|
G|-0------0-----0h2-----0------0------|
D|-0------0------0-----0h2--0--0------|
A|-2--------------------3------2------|
E|-3--------------------x------3------|

Also, in the 3rd verse, there's a version of D which Ryan plays in a few of his songs, but I don't know the
actual chord name.  I've listed it as "D*" below.  It's played like this:

e|---0---|
B|---3---|
G|---0---|
D|---4---|
A|---5---|
E|---x---|


INTRO:

G   Cmaj9  c6/9   C
G   Cmaj9  c6/9   C
G   Cmaj9  c6/9   C
G   Cmaj9  c6/9 

VERSE:

         G                            
Well the pills I got they ask me lets go out for a while
        G                                   D7
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
            D7
They just tell me to relax

       G
But oh... cinderella
                                              C
All dressed up in all your boots and all your charms
   [run down]  G
I’m not the fellow
                                            D7
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
      D7
Or to be the one be the one
       C   D       G
Be the one that’s gone


[Harmonica]

G   Cmaj9  c6/9   C  x2


        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                   Gsus2
Damn... don’t the streets look empty though
       C
Just wandering round here without you

       C               G                      D7    C          G
Oh the empty bottle it misses you and I’m the one it’s talking to


[Harmonica]

G   Cmaj9  c6/9   C  x2


    G            C         G
And I don’t know which is worse
               C
To wake up and see the sun
      D7
Or to be the one be the one
       C   D      G
be the one that’s gone


Cmaj9 c6/9 C G  [fades out while repeating these]
