Breaking The Girl

Red Hot Chili Peppers


Standard Tuning, EBGDAE.

Bearing in mind that this is my first tab, I am totally open to all corrections,
suggestions and the like.
With that having been said, let's do it:

Kiedis begins:

 I am a man cut from the know

 Rarely do friends come and then go

 She was a girl, soft but estranged
 We were the two our lives rearranged

 Feeling so good that day
 A feeling of love that day...


 Twisting and turning your feelings are burning
 You're breaking the girl
 She meant you no harm
 Think you're so clever but now you must sever
 You're breaking the girl
 He loves no one else

Verse 2 follows, with the same chords as verse one, and then another chorus comes in.
After the chorus, there's the "solo" part which is played:
Am - G x8 (strummed strongly)

Then repeat chorus and that's it.
