About this tab version
I always find myself adding/changing chords from what's available and have settled on this arrangement. There is a short set of intro chords. This version has C's before many of the Cadd9 chords, and several places where C replaces Cadd9. It has careful alignment with chord changes. The last line from the first chorus has a different chord progression than I've seen elsewhere. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[INTRO]
G      D                 C     Cadd9 

[VERSE]
G      D                 C     Cadd9 
Broke into the old apartment 
G        D                 C     Cadd9 
This is where we used to live
G       D                   C 
Broken glass, broke and hungry 
         D                  G
Broken hearts and broken bones 
         D                C     Cadd9 
This is where we used to live 

[REFRAIN]
Em    D                  C     Cadd9 
Why did you paint the walls?  
Em   D                   C     Cadd9 
Why did you clean the floor?  
Em    D             C           D                    G
Why did you plaster over the hole I punched in the door? 
G         D                 C     Cadd9 
This is where we used to live 
G    D                   C        
Why did you keep the mousetrap?
      D                  G
Why did you keep the dishrack?
         D               C
These things used to be mine  
                D                     G
I guess they still are, I want them back 

[BREAK]
G      D                 C     Cadd9 

[VERSE]
G      D             C     Cadd9   
Broke into the old apartment 
G      D                    C     Cadd9    
Forty­two stairs from the street 
G        D                    C     
Crooked landing, crooked landlord       
          D                   G      
Narrow landway filled with crooks. 
G        D                 C     Cadd9  
This is where we used to live. 

[REFRAIN]
Em   D                   C     Cadd9 
Why did they pave the lawn?  
Em   D                    C     Cadd9 
Why did they change the locks?  
Em   D             C            D                G
Why did I have to break it, I only came here to talk 
G        D                C     Cadd9    
This is where we used to live 
G     D                 C            
How is the neighbor downstairs?
        D               G 
How is her temper this year? 
         D              C                             D 
I turned up your tv and stomped on the floor just for fun


[BRIDGE]
Em  D             G          C       
I know we don’t live here anymore 
Em   D            G           C      
We bought an old house on the Danforth 
Em   D               G              C       
She loves me and her body keeps me warm 
C    D        G
I’m happy here

[VERSE]
G            D                 C     Cadd9 
But this is where we used to live 
G      D             C     Cadd9     
Broke into the old apartment 
G       D                 C     Cadd9 
Tore the phone out of the wall 
G      D                C      
Only memories, fading memories
            D           G
Blending into dull tableaux


 G  D          C     Cadd9
I want them back 
G  D          C     Cadd9 
I want them back (This is where we used to live) 
G  D          C     Cadd9 
I want them back (This is where we used to live)
G  D         C     Cadd9 
I want them back (This is where we used to live) 
G  D         C    
I want them back!
