                The Break Up Song - The Greg Kihn Band
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Brent Jacque
Email: sxviper700triple@hotmail.com

Tuning: Normal
This is my first tab, but my dad helped me write it up, I think it sounds
pretty close to the album version, and I seen our band here play it, 
it looks right :P

I use a slight bit of distortion with my pedal for a little effect, but 
sounds good clean, too....:P 


I didn't figure out the timing, but just listen to it, it's not hard ;)

Intro: 
                                              
       Am           F          G     Am  (last Am: run pick down it 
                                           slowly, listen for timing)  x2
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the singing starts, strumming and muting with the chords Am, F and C
Lyrics

C               Am                F
We had broken up for good just an hour before

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

C                  Am                       F 
Now I'm staring at the bodies as there's dancin' 'cross the floor

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

C                    Am                   F
And then the band slowed the tempo and the music gets me down

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

(Play Intro Over Again)
It was the same old song with the melancholy sound

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

(Listen for strumming)
C              Am               F
They don't write 'em like that anymore

They just don't write 'em like that anymore


C                Am                F
We'd been living together for a million years

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

C                 Am               F
But now it feel so strange (out in the atmospheres?)

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh


(Play Intro Over again)
And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

Now I'm staring at the bodies as they dancin' so slow

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

(Listen for Strumming)
C                 Am        F    
They don't write 'em like that anymore

They just don't write 'em like that anymore


C                Am         F
Now I wind up staring at an empty glass

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

C                 Am              F
Cause its so easy to say that you'll forget your past

Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh

(Play Intro Over again)
They don't write 'em like that anymore, no!

They just don't write 'em like that anymore

(Listen for how many times to play the intro over)
They don't write 'em like that anymore

They just don't write 'em like that anymore 
(Play Intro and fade out)
