BREAK UP THE CONCRETE
By Chrissie Hynde - Pretenders


Rhythmically fast with that Bo Diddley beat.
Intro has vocal over drums first two lines:


There was a red brick road where I grew up on

And a pretty stone wall round a fragrant lawn

D                       A                 E       A
Fish in the pond that sparkled in the dawn
D                          A              E       A
But it ainít no more itís all gone gone gone

     D                       A                 E                  A
     Whoa!  Ram it, Cram it,  Grand Slam it, Break up the concrete, 
     D                   A                 E                  A
     Prod it,  Sod it,  Metal Rod it,   Break up the concrete
     D                       A             E                  A
     Thwak it,  Crack it,  Lineback it,  Break up the concrete
     D                    A                 E                  
     Shake it,  Bake it,  Earthquake it,  Break up the concrete  
       A                    E                        A
     Break up the concrete,    Break up the concrete

Acappella:  Dak  Dak  Dak  Dak    Dagga  Dagga   Dagga  Dagga 

Instrumental: D    A    E    A        D    A    E    A

And the depot over there right next to the tracks
That the slaves put down, while breaking their backs
But those Texas zoo no would ever get into a carriage
Or anything that might lead to an interracial marriage

     Whoa!  Ram it, Cram it, Grand Slam it, Break up the concrete, 
     Prod it,  Sod it,  Metal Rod it,   Break up the concrete
     Thwak it,  Crack it,  Lineback it,  Break up the concrete
     Shake it,  Bake it,  Earthquake it,  Break up the concrete  
     Break up the concrete,    Break up the concrete

Acappella: Dak  Dak  Dak  Dak    Dagga  Dagga   Dagga  Dagga 

Instrumental:
D    A    E    A        D    A    E    A      
D    A    E    A        D    A    E    A

Now donít tell me its progress cause thatís just a lie
And donít even try to come with an excuse why!
We weíre so busy worrying about them dropping the bomb
We didnít notice where our enemy was really coming from!
Hey boys címon letís do it!

     Ram it, Cram it, Grand Slam it, Break up the concrete, 
     Prod it,  Sod it,  Metal Rod it,   Break up the concrete
     Thwak it,  Crack it,  Lineback it,  Break up the concrete
     Shake it,  Bake it,  Earthquake it,  Break up the concrete  
     One more time

D  A  E  A                     D  A  E  A   
         Break up the concrete            Break up the concrete

Now he who laid it, come back here and raid it,  Break up the concrete 
Break up the concrete   Break up the concrete  
Break up the concrete    Break up the concrete 

Acappella: Dak  Dak  Dak  Dak   Dagga  Dagga   Dagga  Dagga
