WHAT'S A chord diagramA majorA BROKEN HEART
(by Don Phrimmer & George Teren)
(performed by Patty Loveless)
-----------------------------
[The recording of this song is in G#; I play the acoustic guitar intro
 in either A chord diagramD MajorD or C, and use a capo at the 6th or 8th fret.  The chords
 I've written here are in D, but if you just want the chords, it would
 probably be easier to play it in A chord diagramG MajorG and use a capo on the 1st fret.]
[Don't worry too much about the F#m13; just play it as F#m, if you're
 strumming chords.  I called it a thirteenth because it has lots of
 hammer-ons and pull-offs that add up to a lot of different notes.]
[Each chord is half a measure.]

So what's a broken heart

I just have to stop, and look at who I am
I was just a fool, he was just a man
I can walk away, never looking back
All his tender lies are hard facts

Compared to those who have no hope, their lives so cold and hard
All my misery is a raindrop in the sea
Yeah, what's a broken heart
