"Breaking Down" by Jeremy Messersmith

My favorite song by one of my favorite hometown musicians. 
Here is the basic progression in the original key of G. 
Not hard at all, lovely song though. Great fun to harmonize on.

Verse 1:
G                                         C           C C/B
Iíve got a car thatís always stuck in the last gear.
     Am                                               D
Itís starts and it goes if you leave it alone but you canít steer.
G                                      C           C C/B
Taking it out on a Sunday drive on the back roads
       Am                                        C              D
And it waits till Iím far away from home and the sun is getting low

Chorus 2: 
    G                                          C        C C/B
And wouldnít you know it, sheís breaking down again
Am                                  C                    D
Pulling her over onto the shoulder, letting her under my skin

Verse 2:
G                                          C           C C/B
Iíve got a woman that I havenít seen for a good year
      Am                                           D
Sheís got a new job, yeah I love her a lot but she ainít here.
G                                              C     C C/B
Weíve got a system and sheís got it all worked out
            Am                                           C
But thereís something missing that sheís forgetting that she canít live 

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3: (repeat verse progression)
Iíve  got a car, it looks real good with the top down
But it lost a tire and caught on fire in the last town
Iíve got a girl whoís drying her eyes with a haiku
So Iím hitching a ride down 35, gotta be there by afternoon

(Repeat Chorus)
