Perfectly Good Guitar _ John Hiatt

INTRO  - Feeeeeedbaaaaccckkkk--

Hey---!

Am         Em        G    C    D    Em

Am         Em    D   G    C    D     

Em         D   Em      D   Em

          Em                     G
Well he threw one down from the top of the stairs
 Am                     C          D
beautiful women were standing everywhere
      Em                    G
they all got wet when he smashed that thing 
     Am                        D             G
but off in the dark you could hear somebody sing

        Am               Em
oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
  G          C        D       G
smashing a perfectly good guitar
    Am                  Em
i don't know who they think they are
  D           G        C     Em
smashing a perfectly good guitar

Em          D         Em
Em          D         Em

     Em         G
it started back in 1963
 Am                         C          D
his momma wouldn't buy him that new red harmony
     Em           G
he settled for a sunburst with a crack
     Am                        D            G
but he's still trying to break his momma's back.


chorus
        Am               Em
oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
  G          C        D       Em
smashing a perfectly good guitar
    Am                  Em        D
i don't know who they think they are
            G        C     D
smashing a perfectly good guitar

Em     D      Em
Em     D      Em

     Em         G
he loved that guitar just like a girlfriend
 Am                     C          D
but every good thing comes to an end
     Em                 G
now he just sits in his room all day
     Am                D        G
whistling every note he used to play

Solo
Am   Em   G    C    D    Em
Am   Em   D    G    C    D


Em     D      Em
Em     D      Em


     Em         G
there ought to be a law with no bail
 Am                         C          D
smash a guitar and you go to jail
     Em         G
with no chance for early parole
     Am          C     D          G
you don't get out until you get some soul


chorus
        Am               Em
oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
  G          C        D       Em
smashing a perfectly good guitar
    Am                  Em        D
i don't know who they think they are
            G        C     D
smashing a perfectly good guitar

Em     D      Em
Em     D      Em


     Em         G
late at night the end of the road
 Am                         C          D
he wished he still had the old guitar to hold
     Em         G
he'd rock it like a baby in his arms
  Am           D             G
never let it come to any harm


chorus
        Am               Em
oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
  G          C        D       Em
smashing a perfectly good guitar
    Am                  Em        D
i don't know who they think they are
   G                  C        D         Em
smashing a perfectly good --  good  --  guitar

Em     D      Em
Em     D      Em
