(by Don Phrimmer & George Teren)
(performed by Patty Loveless)
[The recording of this song is in G#; I play the acoustic guitar intro
 in either D or C, and use a capo at the 6th or 8th fret.  The chords
 I've written here are in D, but if you just want the chords, it would
 probably be easier to play it in G and use a capo on the 1st fret.]
[Don't worry too much about the F#m13; just play it as F#m, if you're
 strumming chords.  I called it a thirteenth because it has lots of
 hammer-ons and pull-offs that add up to a lot of different notes.]
[Each chord is half a measure.]

[intro; see tab at end]

Asus2           Bm     Bm9              F#m
What's a broken heart, it ain't no big deal
F#m13           G          G(9)        Asus4
It's not what I have, it's only what I feel
Asus2             Bm   Bm9            F#m
I should laugh it off, I should never cry
F#m13             G    G     F#sus4  F#
It's not meant to live   or die by

G        G       C#/G#   C#/G#    D/A    F#/A#   Bm
Once I learn to let him go, the healing has to start
     Bm        Em         F#m           G
It's temporary pain, I'll live to love again
   A              Bm    Bm9  F#m  F#m13  Em  F#m  G  (A)
So what's a broken heart

I just have to stop, and look at who I am
I was just a fool, he was just a man
I can walk away, never looking back
All his tender lies are hard facts

Compared to those who have no hope, their lives so cold and hard
All my misery is a raindrop in the sea
Yeah, what's a broken heart
A              Bm    Bm9  F#m  F#m13  G  G  F#  F#
What's a broken heart

With faith and time, I know I'll find my world is not that dark
It's temporary pain, I'll live to love again
   A              Bm    Bm9  F#m  F#m13  Em  F#m  G  (A)
So what's a broken heart
A              Bm    Bm9  F#m  F#m13  G  Asus2  Bm.
What's a broken heart


This is the intro; the verse is very similar.  The first section of tab
is in D, the second is in C; play whichever you want.
