Frank Turner - Broken Piano Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
The strumming pattern is a little weird and changes so I’d watch the video where he 
does it if I were you. It’s kind of vibrato up until the final chorus basically.

[ch]Fm/A[/ch]
As I walked out one morning fair
I found myself drawn thoughtlessly
Back to the place we used to live
And you still do, now without me

Around the back, away from the road
Behind the bins, beneath your window
I found the hulk, a rusting bulk
Of a shattered old piano
Someone had torn out some of the keys
With cruel care, not thoughtlessly
In such a way that one could only play
Minor melodies

[Chorus]
      D5             [ch]Fm/A[/ch]     Fm       Asus2     Bm7    E7
So I sat down in my sadness, beneath   your     window
                D5             Fm                      Asus2    Bm7    E7
And I played sad songs on the minor keys of a   broken     piano
   D5
A sinner amongst saved men, on the banks of the muddy Thames

 [ch]Fm/A[/ch]
As I have wandered through this city
Like a child lost in the London fog
From Highgate Hill, down to the river
Then washed downstream past the Isle of Dogs

Had time enough to think upon
The question of what kind of songs
That you would choose to listen to
Now that I am gone
And as I float beneath that bridge
Just down the road from where you live
I've often thought I might have caught
Your voice upon the wind

(stop)
But as I stroked those broken keys
You did not join in harmony

[Chorus]
      Dsus2         Fm                Asus2      Bm7    E7
So I sat down in my sadness, beneath   your      window
      Dsus2                   Fm                 Asus2     Bm7    E7
And I played sad songs on the minor keys of a   broken     piano
Dsus2
A sinner amongst saved men, on the banks of the muddy Thames


Dm E7* D
Dm E7* D
On the banks of the muddy Thames

Dm E7* D
Dm E7* D
On the banks of the muddy Thames
