Title I Want a Broken Heart Artist Derek Webb Album I See Things Upside Down iTunes Unplugged EP Copyright 2004 Derek Webb Music (admin by Music Services) ASCAP Tabbed by Kirk Bozeman (kirkbozeman `at' yahoo `dot' com) on 61905. --NOTES-- This tab can be read best when printed in a font where all characters are the same width. I used 12 pt Courier New when I made it. This is tabbed from the Derek Webb "iTunes unplugged EP" available only from iTunes. This is also the way it is played on the Derek Webb live recordings available at ftp://shane:firstname.lastname@example.org. Chords also correspond directly to those on "i see things upside down", but the rhythm is much different on that version, and it isn’t as much fun to play that version with just an acoustic guitar (in my opinion). I would play the A with just your index finger and keep that pressed down for most of the chords – it makes things easier. Also, there are a couple of places with some “ad libbing” that I did not try to include. These are simply pull-off’s and hammer-on’s between the DF# and Asus chord forms. I didn’t add these because the chord names are already confusing and messy enough as it is, and trying to cram in the last of the little stuff would make things much harder to read and follow. I’ve marked the places where this happens with a . --TUNING-- Standard tuning. --CHORDS-- A 002220 BsusA 004420 DF# x04230 Asus x02230 Bm7 x24230 or x24430 Dsus x00230 DsusG# x00130 E 022100 F#mE 044200 G 3x0033 --TAB— A BsusA (4x) Dsus DsusG# DF# A BsusA (2x) A BsusA A I’ve got faith in the bank DF# Asus DF# And money in my heart Bm7 I’ve got a calloused place A DF# Asus DF# Where You’re ring used to be, my love I’ve traded naked and unashamed For a better place to hide For a righteous mask, A suit of fig leaves, and lies E I thought the cattle on a thousand hills F#mE Was not enough to pay my bills G DF# And I fell in love with those who proved me wrong Dsus DsusG# DF# A BsusA A And now... I... want a broken heart DF# Asus DF# There’s a great padlock On the place where I was free And I’m feelin’ bad From swallowing that key Now I work real hard But I mostly call in sick Of a broken back From the ground fighting back at me I cannot look you in the eye So (I) check the knots on my disguise ‘Cause I fell in love with fashion in the dark And now I want a broken heart (interlude – just verse chords) I’ve got alibis for every crime A substitute to do my time ‘Cause Your hear breaks enough on both our parts And now I want a broken heart And now I want a broken heart And now I want a broken heart A BsusA (4x) A
