Hi, this is my first tab, and I have noticed on the net that there is no other 
version (at least to my knowledge and I have looked around)of this phenomenal 
and beautiful song on the net except with the capo on the 4th fret. What about 
us people who don't have a capo? I think there is a great number of us on the net, 
and I have tried to help them and myself in tabbing this great song. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
        BREAKING THE GIRL
 
Standard Tuning, EBGDAE.

Bearing in mind that this is my first tab, I am totally open to all corrections, 
suggestions and the like.
With that having been said, let's do it:

[Intro] 
(strummed lightly)

A, G, D, A x2


[Verse]

  A     G    D           A
 I am a man cut from the know

 Rarely do friends come and then go

 She was a girl, soft but estranged
  A          G       D        A
 We were the two our lives rearranged

  C         G         A
 Feeling so good that day
  C           G         F
 A feeling of love that day...


[Chorus]

  Am          G           C           D
 Twisting and turning your feelings are burning 
      E
 You're breaking the girl
 Am   G   C    D   F
 She meant you no harm
  Am            G           C           D
 Think you're so clever but now you must sever
       E
 You're breaking the girl
 Am G     C  D   F
 He loves no one else


[Verse 2] 

(follows, with the same chords as verse one, and then another chorus comes in)


[Chorus]

  Am          G           C           D
 Twisting and turning your feelings are burning 
      E
 You're breaking the girl
 Am   G   C    D   F
 She meant you no harm
  Am            G           C           D
 Think you're so clever but now you must sever
       E
 You're breaking the girl
 Am G     C  D   F
 He loves no one else


[Solo] 

Am - G  x8 (strummed strongly)


[Chorus]

  Am          G           C           D
 Twisting and turning your feelings are burning 
      E
 You're breaking the girl
 Am   G   C    D   F
 She meant you no harm
  Am            G           C           D
 Think you're so clever but now you must sever
       E
 You're breaking the girl
 Am G     C  D   F
 He loves no one else

its not exaclty right you have to use a capo coz its
the only way really. he uses a e shape and slides it up the fret

the funky monks video shows john playing this song, and he doesn't use a capo at all!!Most of the song is played by (basically) moving an A chord up the neck
