                             You Tore Me Down - Yo La Tengo
Tabbed by:Jeff



D         F#m
Everybody knows
     A             G
That you've been untrue
       D                 F#m
You've gone and broke my heart
    A       G
And made me blue

Em       Bm/F# G
Turned my head around
Em       Bm/F#   G
Then you tore me down

D          F#m
If I had a choice
A          G
I'd not be sad
D                      F#m
'Cause when I hear your voice
   A        G
It makes me mad

Em       Bm/F# G
Baby's not around
Em       Bm/F#   G       D
But she's leaving town

Bm    A
Baby, baby
      Bm    A
Don't run away
  Bm          A
I want you to stay
Bm    A
I'm sorry
Bm    A
So sorry

I made you blue
And now you should be sorry too
Should be sorry too
Now I'm so alone
You're far away
I sit here at home
No words to say
To anyone around
'Cause you tore me down
Tore me down
Tore me down
Tore me down

It's worth mentioning that this is a cover of a Flamin' Groovies song. It's on their brilliant album 'Shake Some Action'. It will not disappoint you.
