Original Song – “You’re The One”

You’re The One is a very soft, gentle and mellow love song that speaks to thoughts drifting between hearts like golden leaves as they swirl and tumble gently through the air, carried aloft by a soft autumn breeze – or perhaps transported between hearts in the comfort of fluffy clouds across a clear, blue sky.  Daydreams and loving thoughts take on a life of their own, existing outside of time and place…transporting us to other worlds…to a realm where hearts dwell under rainbows and love never dies!  “You’re the one I dream about, When my thoughts drift away, You’re the one I’m missin’, When you’ve gone so far away…”

I recorded “You’re The One” three times on Set 3 back in 1996. Each version presents a slightly different view of this quiet and reflective little love song, and I’ll share all three versions with you today, “You’re the one I dream about, When my thoughts drift away, You’re the one I’m missin’, When you’ve gone so far away…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Esus4* represents a simpler version of the standard guitar fingering for the Esus4 chord and as with all of my early songs during which I worked with my friend Gordon Olvera, I’ve shared the copyright with him for trying to give voice to my songs.  Also, emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide.
