Once You Love - Steve Earle

Intro: DGDA X 2

D               G
A long time ago there lived a man 
D                       A
He had the world in the palm of his hand 
G                        A
Sultans and kings beat a path to his door 
G                        A
He had everything but he still wanted more 
D                        G
One day in spring came a lady so fair 
D                      A
He'd never looked on a beauty so rare 
G                             A
But he didn't trust her so he locked her away 
G                                 A
And his gold lost its luster when love died that day 

CHORUS:
G        D      C             G
Once you love, once you trust it 
G        D         C       G
Once you give your soul is bare 
G         D            C           G
One false move and you know you're busted 
G        D        G        A
Once you love you care 

D                     G
I knew an old man who lived all alone 
     D                       A
In a sad Iittle house at the end of the road 
   G                            A
He sat on his front porch in an old rocking chair 
    G                        A
And everyone swore he'd gone crazy down there 
    D                    G
But no one comes near so how could they know 
   D                        A
He lost someone dear to him once long ago 
   G                           A
He remembers the laughter and  still tastes the tears 
       G                              A
And he still calls her name out after all of these years 

CHORUS: 
G        D      C             G
Once you love, once you trust it 
G        D         C       G
Once you give your soul is bare 
G         D            C           G
One false move and you know you're busted 
G        D        G       
Once you love you care 

        C                  G D
You can keep it all inside 
        C                        G D
You can run but you can't hide 
         C
When you think it's safe outside 
                 D                        G D
Look behind you, love will find you

CHORUS:
G        D      C             G
Once you love, once you trust it 
G        D         C       G
Once you give your soul is bare 
G         D            C           G
One false move and you know you're busted 
G        D        G        
Once you love you care 

C              G        G D
Once you trust it
C              G        G D
Once you care             (Repeat and fade)
