Artist: Richard Marx
Title: One Man
Album: Paid Vacation (1994)

Standard Tuning: EADGBe

Intro:
E B C#m A
E B A A-E

       E
It's a peaceful thing
             A            B               E
To know that freedom as a rule belongs to me
                  E
There's something very wrong
         A           B              E
When the colour of a man is all you see
      C#m
After all this time
          F#m          B
How can a single voice explain
    C#m            A                F#m
Any reason for the pain we all have seen
           A
It's not a dream

[Chorus:]
E       B
 One man stood tall
C#m                           A
 And faced the devil with his back to the wall
  E
And took one step
   B               A  E
Closer to Heaven above

      E
So he took a stand
                 A                 B            E
And walked where no one else would dare to even try
           E
It was the only way
           A           B                 E
If not for bravery the soul would surely die
          C#m                        F#m           B
And right before my eyes he gave his life unselfishly
        C#m              A                 F#m
So that all the father's children could be free
                A
Like you and me, yeah

[Chorus]

F#m            B
Before his work is done
             E                  C#m
We've got to put an end to this game of
         A    A-Ab-F#m
Choosing sides
                B
I want us to be one
      C#m          A
And I won't let it go
          F#m
Till it's over
               E
I'm here waiting


Solo:
Em B C#m A
Em B A

[Chorus] 1.5 Steps Up
G       D
 One man stood tall
Em                            C
 And faced the devil with his back to the wall
  G
And took one step
   D               C  G
Closer to Heaven above
G       D
 One man was tall
Em               C                       G
 Faced the devil... with his back to the wall
            D               C  G
One step closer to Heaven above

G D Em C
G D C

G       D
 One man stood tall
Em C                     G
    With his back to the wall
   D    C  G
Oo-oh
