Dm Fmaj7 Bo7 Bb
A pistol shot at five o'clock; the bells of heaven ring.
If you can abide it let the hurdy-gurdy play.
[A7]Tell me what you [Dm]done it for. No I [F]won't tell you a [C]thing.
Stranger ones have come by here before they flew away.
Dm Fmaj7 Bo7 Bb
Yesterday I begged you before I hit the ground.
I will not condemn you nor yet would I deny.
[A7]All I leave behi[Dm]nd me is [F]only what I've f[C]ound.
I would ask the same of you but failing, will not die.
1st time through -> A7
2nd time -> Am A7 D
[D]Take up you china doll[A]. It's only [G]fractured;
Just a little nervous from the [D]fall.[G] [D] [G]La la la la la la [D]la.
I would love chords for Brokedown please someone else supply those.
I have many other songs chords including some to thier covers.
Unfortunatley my ftp is all f**ked up for the summer and then some so I
can only post 'em or email 'em. I'd like to get more, especially songs
like Dark Hollow, Race is On, etc. etc. I'm sure they are terribly easy
but I just never get around to figuring them out.
Just a little nervous from the fall,
Thanks to the original poster.
