Broke Down  Slaid Cleaves

Capo 1
[D]Sherry had a pawn shop band of gold,
A sink full of dishes and a love grown cold,
[G]Along came a boy, [A]pretty as the devil,
She [D]took his [A]hand, the whole thi[Bm]ng unravelled,
[G]There's no turnin' [A]round,
It's broke [D]down.
[D]Billy took the ring, jammed it in his pocket,
Drove down town and tried to hock it,
[G]Down at the bottom of La[A]ke Ponchartrain,
There's a l[D]ove not c[A]arved inside a we[Bm]dding ring.
[G]Broke down, [A]cracked and shattered,
[D]Left in p[A]ieces like it[Bm] never even mattered,
[G]Broke down, [A]torn and frayed,
[D]Ain't nothin' le[A]ft you could[Bm] give away,
[G]There's no turnin' [A]round,
It's broke [D]down.
[G]Ain't no tellin? where love goes,
[A]Maybe down where the [D]black river flows,
[G]Won't be comin' back [A]round,
It's broke [D]down.
[D]Baby in the back seat, another on the way,
Sherry thinks of Billy at the end of every day,
[G]She spends her nights waiting fo[A]r real life to start,
[D]Listening to the s[A]ound of her do[Bm]uble crossed heart.
[G]Broke down, c[A]racked and shattered,
[D]Left in pi[A]eces like it n[Bm]ever even mattered,
[G]There's no turnin' r[A]ound,
It's broke [D]down.
[D]On the other side of town, two lovers lie still,
Cigarette smokin' on a window sill,
There's a p[G]icture locked up in an ol[A]d suitcase,
Billy c[D]loses his e[A]yes but he sti[Bm]ll sees her face.
[G]Broke down, crac[A]ked and shattered,
[D]Left in p[A]ieces like it ne[Bm]ver even mattered,
[G]Broke down, to[A]rn and frayed,
Ain't [D]nothin' le[A]ft you could giv[Bm]e away,
[G]There's no turnin' ro[A]und,
It's b[D]roke down.
[D]Broke down.
