Intro: C G Am F


C            G             Am            F
 Sometimes I lay under the moon, I thank God I'm breathing
C       G                  Am                F
 Then I pray don't take me soon, 'cause I am here for reason

Pre-Chorus:
C                       G            Am                  F
Sometimes in my tears I drown, but I never let it get me down
        C            G          Am                 F
So when negativity surrounds, I know someday it'll all turn around because

Chorus:
C                     G            
All my life I've been waiting for, 
          Am                   F
I've been praying for, for the people to say
C                   G              
That we don't wanna fight no more, 
            Am                    F
there'll be no more wars, and our children will play
C        G        Am       F
One day, one day, one day,  oh oh oh
C        G        Am       F
One day, one day, one day,  oh oh oh


C          G           Am                  F
 It's not about win or lose, 'cause we all lose when they feed on the
C                      G                         
Souls of the innocent, blood-drenched pavement, 
Am                        F
keep on movin' though the waters stay ragin'
C        G                        Am        F
 In this maze you could lose your way, your way
         C                    G                         Am      F
It might drive you crazy, but don't let it phase you no way, no way

Pre-Chorus:
C                       G            Am                  F
Sometimes in my tears I drown, but I never let it get me down
        C            G          Am                 F
So when negativity surrounds, I know someday it'll all turn around because

Chorus:
C                     G            
All my life I've been waiting for, 
          Am                   F
I've been praying for, for the people to say
C                   G              
That we don't wanna fight no more, 
            Am                    F
there'll be no more wars, and our children will play
C        G        Am       F
One day, one day, one day,  oh oh oh
C        G        Am       F
One day, one day, one day,  oh oh oh


    C                               G                
One day this all will change, treat people the same, 
Am                     F
stop with the violence, down with the hate
    C                      G               
One day we'll all be free, and proud to be 
Am                 F
under the same sun singing songs of freedom like


C      G     Am       F
Wye oh   Wye oh oh oh 
C      G     Am       F
Wye oh    Wye oh oh oh 

Chorus:
C                     G            
All my life I've been waiting for, 
          Am                   F
I've been praying for, for the people to say
C                   G              
That we don't wanna fight no more, 
            Am                    F
there'll be no more wars, and our children will play
C        G        Am       F
One day, one day, one day,  oh oh oh
C        G        Am       F
One day, one day, one day,  oh oh oh

DDUUDU is a basic strum and is called island strum (I always use that strum) I feel it gets more complicated when you say DDUUDU for such a basic strum,the more you know!

Man oh man, I LOVE this song!! The first time I heard it, I was in my dad’s car, and he was playing it on his CD player. I was like, “What’s that song?” and he’s like, “Oh, it’s called One Day, I really like it,” and now look! I’m Matisyahu’s 1# fan!!! XD

The strum was really difficult to find, but I find it easiest to do a simple DDUUD strum. (I know some people might get confused with what D and U is in the pattern,so D = down and U = up). I like this particular reggae/pop song because it is really inspiring and my older sister used to sing it to me before she moved away. I want to play this song for her birthday!

Hi everyone! I made my own strumming pattern. I hope I can help a bit and explain this clearly lol The strumming pattern: • Intro = 1 down strum for each chord • Verses and pre-chorus = do an island strum (down-down-up-up-down-up/DDUUDU) • Chorus = I do 3 different strum patterns here, but it’s really easy: C G Am F One day, one day, one day, oh oh oh ► On the C and G = down-down down-up-down-up / DD DUDU ■ So if you put it in the lyrics: down on One, down on Day(you could actually use up,… Read more »
