Break Me Down
Paul Smith and the Intimations
Tabbed by egg-marteeni
18 October 2015
No capo

This is a full-chord version of Paul Smith's single Break Me Down.
The chords in the chorus and bridge have been taken from a video of Paul playing the song acoustically.
Just type into YouTube "Paul Smith Break Me Down" and it should come up.
Lyrics have been taken from the lyric book packaged with the album.
I did the chords for the verses by ear, so corrections welcome!
Enjoy - it's great to play!

INTRO

Em D G
Em D C

VERSE 1

Em
  Cherry red
  You were a secret to me
Em           D       G
  Bobbed brunette
Em       D         G
  King's Cross became that bit more glamorous
Em        D        G
  Talk until
Em       D      G
  You unveil ambitions to me
Em        D         G
  Plastic parasols
Em      D      G
  Artificial heater lighting up your face

CHORUS 1

G               C                 D
  Break me down, it won't be hard
D               Dsus4
  Widen your eyes until I crack
G               C
  Break me down, it won't be hard
D               Dsus4
  Widen your eyes until I crack

G D Em
G D C

VERSE 2

Em
  Got a fuzzy head
  There's a dent in both of our defences now
Em       D        G 
  Trying to forget
Em        D       G
  Your demeanour leading me a merry dance

CHORUS 2

G               C                 D
  Break me down, it won't be hard
D               Dsus4
  Widen your eyes until I crack
G                  C                      D
  I'm the same age now that you were then
D            Dsus4
  I understand the way you felt
G                   C
  You can break me down
D                      Dsus4
  Catch a plane and I'll meet you in the middle

BRIDGE (Paul plays this bit all barred)
Dm Cm G
Dm Cm G
Dm            Cm              G
  I was still dreaming of the coatcheck girls
Dm           Cm           G
  I was just trying to forget

CHORUS 3

G              C                 D
  Break me down, it won't be hard
D               Dsus4
  Widen your eyes until I crack
G                  C                      D
  I'm the same age now that you were then
D            Dsus4
  I understand the way you felt
G                   C
  You can break me down
D                      Dsus4
  Catch a plane and I'll meet you in the middle
