[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

Em7      D            Cadd9
Why did you paint the walls?
Em7      D            Cadd9
Why did you clean the floor?
Em7      D            Cadd9      D                     G
Why did you plaster over the hole I punched in the door?
G         D            Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G    D                Cadd9
Why did you keep the mousetrap?
       D               G
Why did you keep the dishrack?
G            D
these things used to be mine
Cadd9                                 D
I guess they still are, I want them back


[Verse]

G          D         Cadd9 
Broke into the old apartment
G          D         Cadd9  
Forty-two stairs from the street
G          D         Cadd9 
Crooked landing, crooked landlord
           D           G   
Narrow laneway filled with crooks
G          D         Cadd9  
This is where we used to live


[Chorus]

Em7  D                 Cadd9
Why did they pave the lawn?
Em7  D                 Cadd9
why did they change the locks?
Em7  D                 Cadd9      D               G
Why did I have to break it, I only came here to talk
G       D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G      D             Cadd9
How is the neighbor downstairs?
    D             G
How is her temper this year?
          D               Cadd9                        D
I turned up your TV and stomped on the floor just for fun


[Verse]

Em7  D            G            Cadd9   
I know we don't live here anymore
Am  D              G          Cadd9        
We bought an old house on the Danforth
Em7  D                G             Cadd9
She loves me and her body keeps me warm
Am    D     G
I'm happy here
G          D                 Cadd9  
But this is where we used to live
G          D        Cadd9 
Broke into the old apartment
G          D              Cadd9 
Tore the phone out of the wall
G           D            Cadd9           D             G
Only memories, fading memories Blending into dull tableaux


[Outro]

G     D       Cadd9
I want them back
G     D       Cadd9          D             G
I want them back.  This is where we used live
G     D       Cadd9          D             G
I want them back.  This is where we used live
G     D       Cadd9          D             G
I want them back.  This is where we used live
G     D       Cadd9
I want them back

I'm pretty sure it's a C9 instead of Am7. Sounds right plus looks like what Page is fretting when you look up video's of this song.
