Broken Boy Soldier
By the Raconteurs
Tabbed By Lino Alibani

This is my first tab, but I think its pretty accurate.
The ending is just tapping the strings with the pick
while muting them that didnt need to be tabbed.


--Guitar 1-- (intro)
|-----------/10--12--/9--12--/8--12--/7--12--/10--12--/9--12--/8--12--/7--12-|

--Guitar 2-----------| (8x = Index on 8th fret, using you middle to mute. Also, I think 
2 is acoustic.)
|-8x---8x---8x---8x--|
|-8x---8x---8x---8x--|
|-8x---8x---8x---8x--| This is Guitar 2's part throughout the song,
|-8x---8x---8x---8x--| Except for Riff 2 which they play in unison.
|-8x---8x---8x---8x--|
|-8x---8x---8x---8x--|

--Break Riff--
|----------------------------------------------------|

|----------------------------------------------------|
|--10-10---x--x--9--9--x--x--7--7--7--5--5--2--------|
|--10-10---x--x--9--9--x--x--7--7--7--5--5--2--------|
|--8--8----x--x--7--7--x--x--5--5--5--3--3--0--------|

--Main Riff--
|-----------------|    This riff is played throughout the song until the Break is played,
|-----------------|    If you listen closely, you can tell.
|-----------------|
|--2--5--2--0--2--|
|--2--5--2--0--2--|
|--0--3--0-----0--|


I'm pulling down questions from my shelf
I'm asking forgiveness
I ain't asking nobody but myself
and I want you to know this

--Break Riff--

and I want you to know this

--Break Riff--

You rightfully threw a box of toys
that were handed down to me
just take out the ones you brought and then
give the rest to my family


I'm gonna go back to school today
but I'm dropping myself off
I'm throwing the child seat away
I'm through ripping myself off

--Break Riff--

I'm done ripping myself off

--Break Riff--


I'm child and man and child again
the toy broken boy soldier
I'm child and man then child again
the boy never gets older
the boy never gets older
the boy never gets older

Intro (played over these lines)
|--/10--12--/9--12--/8--12--/7--12--/10--12--/9--12--/8--12--/7--12--|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

the boy never gets older
the boy never gets older

--Break Riff--

never gets older
the boy broken toy soldier
the boy...
the boy!

--Break Riff--
