Chris De Burgh - One Word (Straight to the Heart)
 
 
CAPO: 4TH Fret
 
 
INTRO: 
One word, one heart, one night, is all I want
    Am                   F        E                 Am
One word, one heart, one girl, is waiting there for me
 
 
Midnight, and all is well
 
I hear the mission bell
Dm
Out on the road, nothing is moving
E                                   Am    
As I speed from town to town, (hey, hey)
 
 
 
Two hearts are beating fast
 
But they are still many miles apart
        F
Oh, the moon was shining on a distant shore
Dm                        E
Burning like a fire in my heart
            F                    E
I've got to see her, I've got to say...
 
 
CHORUS:
    Am                   F         E
One word, one heart, one night, is all I want
    Am                   F        E                 C
One word, one heart, one girl, is waiting there for me
               C7       F
I never knew I cared so much before
                       C                      F
I've got to tell her tonight (straight to the heart)
                        C                      F
I'm going to tell her tonight (straight to the heart)
                       C                      F
I've got to tell her tonight (straight to the heart)
       G     Am  F  Am
Like a cannonball
 
 
 
Headlights are blazing through
 
Turn on the radio, I hear the news
Dm
Hand on the wheel, foot on the floor
    E       E7      E               Am
And on, and on, and on we go, (hey, hey)
 
This car is like a friend
 
Bring her the message that I want to send
        F
Oh, the dawn was breaking and I saw the sun
Dm                         E
Burning like a fire on the bay
           F                    E
I'm nearly there now, I'm gonna say, hey, hey...
 
 
CHORUS:
    Am                   F         E

One word, one heart, one girl, is waiting there for me
                        F
I never knew I cared so much before
                       C                      F
