One Is One Too Many (And A Thousand Not Enough)
Carroll Baker
Album: I've Never Been This Far Before (2007)

Intro: G-C

C                                             G
He was just the average kind a guy you find hanging around the bar
                                                     C
By the way he listen to our band, I knew he played guitar
                                                 F
So when the show was over I just had to talk to him
           G                                               C
Shook his hand said how you doing he just answered with a grin

C                                            G
He said can I buy you something, I said no thanks I don't drink
                                                                   C
Then strangest look came across his face and he looked at me and winked
                                              F
I joined AA just last year it's been mighty rough
      G                                        C
One drink is one too many and a thousand not enough

C                                                 G
I said why come to place like this you must be living in pure hell
                                                                 C
He said I played guitar some years ago and they say I played it well
                                            F
Music was my only love but I had to give it up
      G                                        C-----A
One drink is one too many and a thousand not enough

       D                                 A
So I gave him my guitar said won't you please play me a song
                                                                D
Shook his head said I just couldn't I haven't played one in so long
                                                       G 
So I coached him just a little more and he finely gave up
        A                                                 D
Sang a song that one is one too many and a thousand not enough

D   G                          D
So now I understand it as he plays and sings his song
       E                                        A
And I know it's through the grace of God he's found where he belongs
    D                                                           G 
I know that he was drowning once, but for the last time he came up
         A                                       D
He said one is one too many and a thousand not enough

             A                                       D
Yes he said one is one too many and a thousand not enough
