chesney kenny - "One Step Up"


I've been trying to play this thing for hours. Can't even find the
right key. It's well hidden in all the orchestration. I know it's
centers around D. The song was written by Bruce Springsteen but I
didn't find it under his name. So, if anybody wants to try arranging it
for guitar alone...... It was hard enough understanding the words.
Chesney sounds like he's got a really bad cold on this one.


One Step Up Kenny Chesney
CD No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem
Written By Bruce Springsteen

Woke up this morning the house was cold

Checked the furnace she wasn't burning

Went out and hopped in my old Ford

But the engine buddy, she ain't a'turnin

Giving each other some hard lessons lately

But we ain't learnin'

Same sad story that's a fact

One step up and two steps back

Bird on a wire outside my motel room

But he ain't singing

Girl in white outside a church in June

But the church bells, they ain't a'ringin

I'm sitting' here in this bar tonight

And all I'm thinkin' is

Ah, same old story same old act

One step up and two steps back


It's the same thing night on night

Who's wrong and baby who's right

Another fight and I slammed the door

Another battle in our dirty little war

When I look at myself I don't see

The man I wanted to be

Somewhere along the line I slipped off track

Mivin' one step up and two steps back


There's a girl across the bar

I get the message she's sendin'

Mmmmmm, she ain't looking too married

Maybe, but honey, I'm pretending

Last night I dreamed I held you in my arms

The music was never ending

We danced as the evening sky faded to black

Moving one step up and two steps back

one step up and two steps back (4 times)

Ah, baby we're groovin


one step up and two steps back (4 times)
