I'm The Only One - Melissa Etheridge

VERSE [1] ---------------------
(play a muted G barre chord with a bluesy feel thru whole verse)
then a little riff kinda like this: (I can play it better than tabbing it :)

Riff [1]
D ---------3hp5-----------
A --3-3ph5---------------- (go back to G barre)
E ------------------------

Please baby can't you see
My mind's a burnin' hell
I got razors a rippin' and tearin' and strippin'
My heart apart as well
Tonight you told me
That you ache for something new
And some other woman is lookin' like something
That might be good for you

Am D Dsus4
Go on and hold her 'till the screaming is gone
Am D Dsus4
Go on believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
G F E (use 7th fret w/
I'm the only one, who'll walk across the fire for you open E & Riff[2]

Riff [2] (again easier played than displayed)

A --7p5----7p5----7p5-------------
E ------7------7------5-3---------

G F E (add Riff [1])
I'm the only one, who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
F Cadd9
When all your promises are gone
G (add Riff [2])
I'm the only one...

VERSE [2] (do as the 1st)

Please baby can't you see
I'm trying to explain
I've been here before and I'm locking the door
And I'm not going back again
Her eyes and arms and skin won't make it go away
You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
That holds you down today

Repeat Chorus...Add Solo.....Repeat Chorus Again...
