WHAT'S A chord diagramAA BROKEN HEART
(by Don Phrimmer & George Teren)
(performed by Patty Loveless)
-----------------------------
[The recording of this song is in G# chord diagramG#G#; I play the acoustic guitar intro
 in either D chord diagramDD or C chord diagramCC, and use a capo at the 6th or 8th fret.  The chords
 I've written here are in D chord diagramDD, but if you just want the chords, it would
 probably be easier to play it in G chord diagramGG and use a capo on the 1st fret.]
[Don't worry too much about the F#m13 chord diagramF#m13F#m13; just play it as F#m chord diagramF#mF#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
