The True One

 

written by Gene Clark

 

 A                              D
Changes come  so quickly, easily it can seem bizarre 
 E                                   D              A
They say there's a price to pay  for going out too far
                              D
You can buy  a one way ticket out there all alone
E  
And you can sit and wonder why 
        D                A
It's so hard to get back home 
                                     D
Nothing is important lost, that's not easy to believe
    E                              D               A
The longer you're in one place, the harder it is to leave
                                 D
You can have a thousand cards to pull out of your sleeve
    E                            D                 A
But in the end the loser is  the one who does decieve

                 Bm      E               A
There's always a reality in what you are doing 
                  Bm           E                A
Sometimes it's so hard to see  which one is the true one

A                                     D
I use to treat my friends like I was more than a millionaire 
E                                    D                    A
Spending those big ones like I could afford them all upstairs                                                       
                                  D              
But what's been flying high must always touch the ground
     E                                D               A
Just walk upstairs and ask  you'll be likely directed down 

         Bm      E               A
Into the reality of what you are doing 
                  Bm           E                A                  
Sometimes it's so hard to see  which one is the true one
                 Bm          E           A 
There's always a reality in what you are doing 
                  Bm           E                A                                                    
Sometimes it's so hard to see  which one is the true one
