Breakfast After Ten
Found on the Following Albums: The Answers / Consent to Treatment / Argue with a Tree

Playing acoustic the chords sound best (in my opinion) as follows:
e--3--3--0--]   e-----------0--]
B--3--3--0--]   B-----------0--]
G--4--3--0--]   G-----------0--] <-- this is the walk down to Em played
D--5--4--2--]   D-----------2--]     at the begining through to the first
A--5--5--2--]   A-----------2--]       chorus.
E--3--5--0--]   E---0-2-0-0-0--]
   G  D  Em 

The intro/verse up until the first chorus is played in barr chords.  If you know 
the song, then you know the pattern for strumming.  

(Verse1)
                                    G
White kitchen walls with a thousand windows.
                           D
You turn on Winston in the den.
                               G        walk down to Em
And I'm still asleep but I can hear the piano.
                              D
When you make breakfast after ten.
                               G
And I smell the coffee on your fingers.
                                 D
I still smell the perfume in the bed.
                            G         walk down to Em
Crushed linen roses are on everything.
                         D
And your still inside my head.

(Chorus) {from this point on the rest of the song is played with open chords}
                                     G
You gotta make her know how it feels to miss you.
                            D
Let her know your swapping sides.
                                Em            G
You're not the one with all the problems.
                            D
You're the one with all the pride.
                                  G
So just pick your head up boy and walk away.
                               D
Walk the coolest walk that you know.
                                     Em   G             D
'Cause in a month or two she'll call you... hang up the phone.

(Verse 2) same chord progression as Chorus

And I hope she knows I've got this memory.

That won't ever seem to break or bend.

A thick lock and sheet rock is on my windows in the kitchen.

I don't think I'll ever take'em down again.  No!

And I've learned alot from all of these break up and make ups and F#@K ups and fakes ups!

Things that I wis you would comprehend, yeah, comprehend!

But for now I'll lace up these wing tipped (converse) shoes boys 

And I'll go and have breakfast with my good friends.

(chorus again)

the break is played  G  A   G   A   D   Em   G   D

(Chorus 2)

You gotta make her know how it feels to miss you.

Let her know your swapping spit.

You're not the one with all the problems.

She's the one that's full of sh@t!

So just pick your head up boy and walk away.

Walk the coolest walk that you know.

'Cause in a month or two she'll call you... hang up the phone.
