Guitar chords 'The One You Love' by Rufus Wainwright

This is probably my favourite song so far off Rufus' new 'Want Two' album. Note living legend Levon Helm from The Band is playing the drums on this track. Saw him live recently and this song was one of the highlights. Intro chords are the same for the verses. Not sure about the chords towards the end in the 'into the early morning' bit, but it works generally.

¶ Am Em ¶ F Am ¶ F Am ¶ F E
¶ Am Em ¶ F Am ¶ F Am ¶ E Am¶

The mind has so many pictures, why canít I sleep with my eyes open
The mind has so many memories, can you remember what it looks like when I cry?
Iím trying, trying to tell you all that I can in a sweet and velvet tongue
But no words ever could sell you, sell you on me after all that I have done

Am G F Em Dm
Iím only the one you love

E Dm G E
Am I only the one you love?

The Lady Gloom and her hornets circling round is now before us
The screamingís done without moving, one little move and for sure you will be stung
Iím singing ĎOh Jerusalem, oh Jerusalem, see what heís picked up in the parkí
Let fuck this awful art party, want you to make love to me and only to me in the dark

Iím only the one you love
Am I only the one you love?

¶ Am Em ¶ F Am ¶ F Am ¶ F E
¶ Am Em ¶ F Am ¶ F Am ¶ E Am¶

Weíve traded in our snapshots

Weíre going through the motions

Dm G
Into the view, Iím leaving you

Em G E Dm
Down Conduit Avenue into the early morning
Am E
Into the early morning

F Em Dm E Dm E Am
The one I love, are you only the one I love?
