Toh Kay - They Broke Him Down Chords

                      E0
0Did I mention he was dreaming
                       G#71
1When the devil came to town
                    C#m2
2I was awoken by the screaming
                   B3
3But nobody heard a sound
                        A4
4And the lies we tell at breakfast
                                  C#m5
5Won't match the lies we share for lunch
                          G#6
6And the lies we serve for dinner
                           A7      B8
7They’re the tallest of the bunch, yeah
                     E9
8Did I mention he was cold
                     G#710
9When he finally lost control of the ghost
                   C#m11
10And the epilogue I dreaded
                      B12
11Now seemed likely to console
                  A13
12And I'm still not understanding
                           C#m14
13The things he did before he left
                            G#15
14And the one thing that will haunt me
                          A16               B17
15Is right before his final breath, when he said
16
17
                  E18                     B19
18"Oh they broke me down, yeah they broke me down
   F#m20                                    C#m21               B22
19So I can't be your saint you see, cause I won't be hanging around
                   E23                     B24
20And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
   F#m25                                         C#m26                       B27
21So I stood there and I held my breath cause I knew that it wouldn't be long
                   E28
22Till they broke me down
23
Interlude -x4-: E29 B30 A31
24
C#m32                 B33
25And no one holds a grudge dear
     A34              E35       B36       C#m37
26Like I do, I see it through
                B38
27And you may not remember
       A39
28It was nothing much at the time
E40                     B41
29But I kept it bottled inside
30
31
G#42            A43
32   Oh and we all know how that goes
G#44            A45
33   I'd given up on letting go
E46            C#m47                G#48
34  So here we are, with nothing left, dear
               A49
35And now you've left here
          B50
36And I was last to know
37
38
                E51
39Holy smokes
                           G#752
40Some say he'd given up the ghost, but he wouldn't do that
                           C#m53
41I think he's hiding in the background
                 B54
42Of his favorite photographs
                     A55
43And he's living as a beggar
                 C#m56
44Or maybe a millionaire
                           G#57
45But the one thing that I'm sure of
                         A58                B59
46Is he found some comfort there, that's fair
47
48
                       E60                     B61
49Because they broke him down, oh they broke him down
   F#m62                               C#m63               B64
50So he can't be my saint no more, he won't be hangin around
51
52Oh no
53
Interlude -x4-: E65 B66 A67
54
                   E68                         B69
55And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
         F#m70                                      C#m71              B72
56He said "I can't be your saint no more because I won't be hangin around"
                   E73                       B74
57And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
   F#m75                                           B76
58So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew that it wouldn't be long
                     E77
59Before they broke me down
