Break Up the Concrete  The Pretenders

Transcribed by MKPhoto
BREAK UP THE CONCRETE
By Chrissie Hynde - Pretenders
Rhythmically fast with that Bo Diddley beat.
Intro has vocal over drums first two lines:
There was a red brick road where I grew up on
And a pretty stone wall round a fragrant lawn
[D]Fish in the pond that sp[A]arkled in the dawn[E] [A]
[D]But it ain?t no more it?s a[A]ll gone gone go[E]ne[A]
[D]Whoa! Ram it, Cram it, [A] Grand Slam it, Br[E]eak up the concrete[A],
[D]Prod it, Sod it, M[A]etal Rod it, Bre[E]ak up the concrete[A]
[D]Thwak it, Crack it, Li[A]neback it, Br[E]eak up the concrete[A]
[D]Shake it, Bake it, [A]Earthquake it, Br[E]eak up the concrete
Br[A]eak up the concrete, [E] Break up the concrete[A]
Acappella: Dak Dak Dak Dak Dagga Dagga Dagga Dagga
Instrumental: D A E A D A E A
And the depot over there right next to the tracks
That the slaves put down, while breaking their backs
But those Texas zoo no would ever get into a carriage
Or anything that might lead to an interracial marriage
Whoa! Ram it, Cram it, Grand Slam it, Break up the concrete,
Prod it, Sod it, Metal Rod it, Break up the concrete
Thwak it, Crack it, Lineback it, Break up the concrete
Shake it, Bake it, Earthquake it, Break up the concrete
Break up the concrete, Break up the concrete
Acappella: Dak Dak Dak Dak Dagga Dagga Dagga Dagga
Instrumental:
[D] [A] [E] [A] [D] [A] [E] [A] 
[D] [A] [E] [A] [D] [A] [E] [A] 
Now don?t tell me its progress cause that?s just a lie
And don?t even try to come with an excuse why!
We we?re so busy worrying about them dropping the bomb
We didn?t notice where our enemy was really coming from!
Hey boys c?mon let?s do it!
Ram it, Cram it, Grand Slam it, Break up the concrete,
Prod it, Sod it, Metal Rod it, Break up the concrete
Thwak it, Crack it, Lineback it, Break up the concrete
Shake it, Bake it, Earthquake it, Break up the concrete
One more time
[D] [A] [E] [A]Break up the concrete [D] [A] [E] [A] Break up the concrete
Now he who laid it, come back here and raid it, Break up the concrete
Break up the concrete Break up the concrete
Break up the concrete Break up the concrete
Acappella: Dak Dak Dak Dak Dagga Dagga Dagga Dagga
Pretenders = Timeless
Chrissie = Precious
