Breaking Down
From "The Song Inside the Sounds of Breaking Down"
Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter)

Very easy song. Play these chords with the picking pattern accentuating on
the B string. You'll hear it when you play it. Very easy, and very AWESOME!
(FYI, UG creates those chord shapes when you hilight the chord. Those are not
usually accurate)

 C2 - G - Em7 - G

Verse 1
C2             G      C2             G    C - G - Em7 - G
I'm making plans to waste my life on You
C2             G      C2             G    Em7 - G - Em7 - G
I'm making plans to waste my life on You
      C2        D       Em7        G
Cause New York City and Hollywood combined
          C2           D               Em7             G
They ain't got enough lights To make me want change my mind 
      C2   G  C2  G         C2  G     Em7// D// G//
about You…           About You… 

                    C// G//    Em7// G//
Cause I'm breaking down
           C// G//              Em7// D// G//
I don't even care if there's anyone else around
                    C// G//    Em7// G//
Cause I'm breaking down
           C// G//              Em7// D// G//
I always fall to pieces whenever You're around


Verse 2
C2             G         C2           G           C - G - Em7 - G
She's Mary Magdalene and tonight is a bottle of perfume
C2             G         C2             G          Em7 - G - Em7 - G
I'm Mary Magdalene and tonight is a bottle of perfume
         C2          D       Em7        G
There's not enough gravity to hold me now
          C2                D         Em7             G
When I know you're going to meet me here
         C2          D       Em7        G         C2   G  C2  G
There's not enough dignity To keep me away from You. 
        C2    G     Em7// D// G//
From You, yeah…


C2 - D - Em7 - G

C          G             C           G              
So meet me here where we shine like gold
         C                 G             C       G
Like the light beneath the embers of the burning coals
           C         G             C         G    
And I will spill my bottle like in days of old
        Em7        D                      C// G//   Em7// G//
On the song that bleeds from the breaking down


Bridge/solo tab 
(you could slide from the 8th fret on the B string in place of that first 
note on the G string 12th fret)

Love it man. I'm thinking though, do you think that the last part of the solo is maybe
E|----------------------| instead?
