"Breaking Down" by Jeremy Messersmith

My favorite song by one of my favorite hometown musicians. 
Here is the basic progression in the original key of G. 
Not hard at all, lovely song though. Great fun to harmonize on.

Verse 1:
G                                         C           C C/B
I’ve got a car that’s always stuck in the last gear.
     Am                                               D
It’s starts and it goes if you leave it alone but you can’t steer.
G                                      C           C C/B
Taking it out on a Sunday drive on the back roads
       Am                                        C              D
And it waits till I’m far away from home and the sun is getting low

Chorus 2: 
    G                                          C        C C/B
And wouldn’t you know it, she’s breaking down again
Am                                  C                    D
Pulling her over onto the shoulder, letting her under my skin

Verse 2:
G                                          C           C C/B
I’ve got a woman that I haven’t seen for a good year
      Am                                           D
She’s got a new job, yeah I love her a lot but she ain’t here.
G                                              C     C C/B
We’ve got a system and she’s got it all worked out
            Am                                           C
But there’s something missing that she’s forgetting that she can’t live 

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3: (repeat verse progression)
I’ve  got a car, it looks real good with the top down
But it lost a tire and caught on fire in the last town
I’ve got a girl who’s drying her eyes with a haiku
So I’m hitching a ride down 35, gotta be there by afternoon

(Repeat Chorus)
