         ONE WAY TICKET (BECAUSE I CAN)     LeAnn Rimes


CAPO 1st fret
Intro chords  C  F  C  F    C  F  C  G C

      C              Am        F                        G
1.) Standing on the corner Looking out into the great unknown
C              Am                  F                    G
I can feel my heart beating faster as I step out on my own
F               C             F                     G
There's a new horizon and a promise of a favorable wind
F                         F
I'm heading out tonight  Traveling light 
F                         G
I'm gonna start all over again and
CHORUS:
C
Buy a one way ticket on a west bound train
                  Am
See how far I can go
                  (because I can)
C
I'm going out dancing in the pouring rain
                             Am
And talk to someone I don't know
                            ( because I can )
         F              Dm
I will face the world around me 
                  Am                      F
Knowing that I'm strong enough to let you go
            F             G                    C
And I will fall in love again  because I can

    C               Am                    F           C
2.) Go to climb a mountain and look the eagle in the eye
C                 Am                F                      G
I won't let fear clip my wings and tell me how high I can fly
          F              C           F                  G
How could I have ever believed that love had to be so blind
       F
When freedom was waiting down at the station
                               G
All I had to do is make up my mind      Chorus, to bridge
Bridge:
   Dm         
I have walked through fire and crawled on my knees
              F            Am        C
Through the valley of the shadow of doubt
Dm                                  F
And the truth came shining like a light on me
G    
And now I can see my way out  lead, key change, ending   

ENDING:
Eb
Buy a one way ticket on a west bound train
                  Cm
See how far I can go
                  (because I can)
Eb
I'm going out dancing in the pouring rain
                             Cm
And talk to someone I don't know
                            ( because I can )
Eb     
I'm gonna buy a one way ticket on a west bound train
Eb                           Eb
I'm gonna have my breakfast with some pink champagne 
Eb                    Eb
gonna sail the ocean gonna spread my wings
Eb                                G#    Eb
gonna climb my mountain gonna do everything.
