BREAK IT TO THEM GENTLY
Burton Cummings


transcribed by Steve Garner (s_garner@hotmail.com)


** Capo on 1st fret **


INTRO: A  D  A  D

                  A                           F#m
Break it to them gently when you tell my mom and dad
                     Bm                        Esus4   E
When you see my baby sister, be as kind as you can
                   A                      F#m
Break it to my grandma, said that boy?s wild and bad
                   Bm
Break it to them gently when you tell ?em
       E                        A
That I won?t be coming home again

          D                                            A
Cause I?m runnin? with a gun and it isn?t any fun as a fugitive
 D                                                    A
Fightin? for my life and I don?t know if I?ll make it alone
 D                                            A
Runnin? with a gun and it isn?t any fun as a fugitive
               F#m                     A
God I wanna go home, lord I wish I was home

D  A  D

                 A                           F#m
When you see my lady with the twinkle in her eyes
                Bm                         Esus4  E
Tell it to her softly and hold her if she cries
                  A                         F#m
Tell her that I love her and I will till the day I die
                Bm
Tell it to her gently when you tell her
         E                     A
That I won?t be coming home again

E                       A
I got in too deep with strangers
E                                  A
Thinkin? they could help me find my way
D                       A
Nobody warned me of the dangers
          F#m                                     Bm   E
And it?s always the young and foolish that have to pay

                    A                      F#m
So break it to them gently when you tell my mom and dad
                  Bm                                Esus4   E
Thank them for the good years and all the lovin? that I had
                A                           F#m
Break it to my grandma who said the boy is wild and bad
                 Bm
Break it to them gently when you tell them
       E                    A
That I won?t be coming home again

   D                                             A
I?m runnin? with a gun and it isn?t any fun as a fugitive
D                                                       A
Fightin? for my life and I don?t know if I?ll make it alone
D                                            A
Runnin? with a gun and it isn?t any fun as a fugitive
              F#m                        A
Lord I wanna go home, lord I wanna go home

                           D
