[intro; horns]
|Am   |G6/A  |Fmaj7/A |G6/A   |Am    |G6/A  |Fmaj7/A |G6/A  |

|A5  |  |  |  |  |Am   |G6/A |Fmaj7/A |G6/A  |Am   |G6/A  |Fmaj7/A |G6/A 


        |A    |D               G             |A             |D  G 
One at a time, always ready to fight over the little things
        |A          |D               G             |A             |D  G 
One at a time, she's always ready to fight over the little things

|A                        |C            D       
 She's goin' crazy and the table starts shakin'
|A                     |E     G       
 She's been abusin' her body again
   |A                       |C             D
Her vision gets hazy and the bottles start breakin'
|E                               
 She's been seeing that man again

[chorus]
      |D                                |D          F              |A
If you want her, you can keep her 'cause I can only handle one at a time
            |         |A                     |D
You can take her, I've got someone waitin' in line
       |D           |D          F              |E              E   |
And I'd like to, but I can only handle one at a time, one at a time

I found out she's continually cheatin', she insists she's so innocent
So I stayed out at another late meeting and she waited up for the argument

If you want her, you can keep her 'cause I can only handle one at a time
You can take her, I've got someone waitin' in line
And I'd like to, but I can only handle one at a time, one at a time

[bridge]
|D    |F/D          |E/D  |G/D      |D      |
          I'm moving on to something better
|F/D              |E/D                  |G/D
     There must be something better than this
|D           |F/D        |E/D  |
 She's got me so confused     

|G/D                  |D/A  |Em7/A   |A   |    |
     As to who's being used

Call her up right away, you've got her number
And I promise not to answer the phone
You can pick her up in your clapped-out Humber
I just hope it can get you home

If you want her, you can keep her 'cause I can only handle one at a time
You can take her, I've got someone waitin' in line
And I'd like to, but I can only handle one at a time, one at a time 

One at a time...
