CRACKING (Suzanne Vega)
-----------------------
[Actually in B; capo up four frets.]

Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#    Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#  G5/F#
[intro]
Em7  Em7/B  A7  A7    C  Cmaj7  G5  G[single note]
[intro]

       Csus2     G/B          G5      G5/F#
It's a one time thing, it just happens a lot
Csus2        G/B   G                G5/F#
  Walk with me and we will see what we have got
Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#    Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#
Ahhhhhhh...              Ahhhhhhh...

   Csus2         G/B           G5            G5/F#
My footsteps are ticking, like water dripping from a tree
Csus2      G/B          G5            G5/F#
Walking a hairline, and stepping very carefully
Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#    Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#  G5/F#
Ahhhhhhh...              Ahhhhhhh...
Em7  Em7/B  A7  A7    C  Cmaj7  G5  G[single note]
Ahhhhhhh...

   Csus2    G/B    G5          G5/F#
My heart is broken; it's worn out at the knees
Csus2            G/B           G5            G5/F#
Hearing muffled, seeing blind, soon it will hit the deep freeze
Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#    Csus2  G/B  G5  G5/F#
Ahhhhhhh...

    Csus2        G/B      G5             G5/F#
And something is cracking, I don't know where
Csus2       G/B      G5               G5/F#
Ice on the sidewalk, brittle branches in the air

    Csus2    G/B     G5             G5/F#
The sun is blinding, dizzy golden, dancing green
Csus2                   G/B        G5                  F#[single note]
Through the park in the afternoon, wondering where the hell

 Csus2    G/B    G5  G5/F#  G5/F#
I     have   been
Em7     Em7/B  A7  A7    C  Cmaj7  A7  A7    C  Cmaj7  G5  G[single note]
Ah ha haaaaa...


INTRO AND VERSE:

[Most of the verse just uses the first four measures of tab.]
[Note that whenever the G5 measure comes before the Em7-A7 part,
 there is also an A bass note in the second half of the measure.]
