[Verse 1]
Cadd9   Em             D/F#       Cadd9
Cherry, I flew all the way out to Tacoma
    Em               D/F#           Cadd9
To tell you that I'd die to get to know ya
         Em             D/F#       Cadd9  Em   D/F# 
But the signal died and I ended up sober............

[Verse 2]
Cadd9        Em          D/F#              Cadd9
Cherry, I'm on my way, I know it's getting colder
Em              D/F#         Cadd9
Pacific in your garden I can hold ya
Em            D/F#               Cadd9    Em   D/F#
Loosening the chips on both our shoulders...........
[Chorus 1]
               G   D/F#
It's always a risk......
        F       Em         Am
Pinning my happiness on a kiss
     Bm    C
One shot wonder
            G    D/F#
Begging to fall.......
F            Em
Smash into a wall
            Am
What do ya know
     Bm    C
One shot wonder
       Am         Bm      C 
I'm a fool, a fool for thunder
Cadd9   Em   D/F#
Cherry............

[Verse 3]
Cadd9            Em                 D/F#         Cadd9
Cherry, We could break the ice with bowling or a movie
       Em                 D/F#           Cadd9
In the car back home you say you always knew me
     Em           D/F#                 Cadd9  Em   D/F#
And all about the pain that feeds the beauty............

[Chorus 2]
              G     D/F#
It's always a risk........
        F       Em        Am
Pinning my happiness on a kiss
    Bm     C
One shot wonder
            G   D/F#
B?gging to fall......
F            Em
Smack into a wall
            Am
What do ya know
    Bm      C
One shot wonder
      Am           Bm     C
I'm a fool, a fool for thunder

[Bridge]
A7                           C
....Saw your pictur? and I fell
                      Em
To the river from the well
             D/F#
Swimming for Canada
A7                      C
....Single bed to the abyss

[Chorus 1]
               G   D/F#
It's always a risk......
          F     Em         Am
Pinning my happiness on a kiss
     Bm    C
One shot wonder
               G   D/F#
I'm begging to fall.....
F            Em
Smash into a wall
           Am
What do ya know
     Bm    C
One shot wonder
      Am           Bm    C
I'm a fool, a fool for thunder
Cadd9      Em      D/F#
Cherry.................
Cadd9      Em      D/F#      Cadd9
