I Was The One
Recorded by Elvis Presley
Written by Wm. Andrew Peppers, Aaron Schroeder,
Claude De Metruis, Hal Blair

C Am Dm G7
I was the one who taught her to kiss
C Am Dm G7
The way that she kisses him now
C C7 F Fm
And you know the way she touches your cheek
C Am D7 G7
Well I taught her how

C Am Dm G7
I was the one who taught her to cry
C Am Dm G7
When she wants you under her spell
C C7 F Fm
The sight of her tears drives you out of your mind
C G7 C C7
I taught her so well

F Fm
And then one day I had my love
C G7 C
As perfect as could be
She lived she loved she laughed she cried
And it was all for me

C Am Dm G7
But I'll never know who taught her to lie
C Am Dm G7
And now that it's over and done
C C7 F Fm
Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart
C G7 C
I was the one

Repeat #3,4
