One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong
Gregory Alan Isakov
Intro: A A Bm I lit a thin green candle D A To make you jealous of me. A Bm The room filled up with mosquitos D E They heard that my body was free F#m C#m And I took the dust of a long sleepless night D A And I put it in your little shoe Bm G And I must confess that I tortured the dress Bm A G A That you wore for the world to look through. A Bm And I showed my heart to the doctor D A He said, You just have to quit A Bm Then he wrote himself a prescription A E And your name was mentioned in it F#m C#m Then he locked himself in a library shelf D A With the details of our honeymoon Bm G I hear from the nurse that he's gotten much worse Bm A G A And his practice is all in a ruin. A Bm I once knew a saint who had loved you D A I studied all night in his school A Bm He taught that the duty of lovers D E Was to tarnish the golden rule. F#m C#m And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure D A he drowned himself in the pool Bm G his body is gone, but out here on the lawn Bm A G A his spirit continues to drool. A Bm An Eskimo showed me a movie D A He'd recently taken of you A Bm The poor man could hardly stop shivering A E His lips and his fingers were blue F#m C#m I suppose that he froze when the wind took your clothes D A And I guess he just never got warm Bm G But you stand there so nice, in your blizzard of ice Bm A G A Please let me come into your storm. Then replay the stanza and hum or Ooo the tune ending with Am.
