Rufus Wainwright - 14th Street tab

               G    B7        Em
You've got my lost brother's soul
My dear mother's eyes
A brown horse's mane
    G  G7      D7
And my uncle's name
               G    B7  Em
You walked me down 14th Street
         C+7                  A7
For the doctor to meet after thoughts of the grave
       G            D7               G
In the home of the brave and of the weak

   G                         C
But why'd you have to break all my heart
G                          D      D7
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it?
G                       C
Why'd you have to break all my heart?
G                          D7
Couldn't you have saved a minor part?

              Em          Em/D      Em/Db         Em/C  Em/B /Db  /D /Eb
I could have clipped and saved and planted in the garden
Em        Em/D      EmDb    Em/C   D
Damn you guess I'll have to get a new one

I'd love to sit and watch you drink
With the reins to the world, gripping a smoke
Vaguely missing link
Don't ever change you hungry little bashful hound
I got the sheep, poor little Bo Peep
Has lost and filed for grounds.

But why'd you have to break all my heart
I could have ripped apart and thrown into the river
Wonder if there's hearts that will deliver

           G                  C+7
Don't ever change, don't ever worry
            DbDim             G
Because I'm coming back home tomorrow
         G                    C+7
To 14th Street where I won't hurry
                DbDim                       G
And where I'll learn how to save, not just borrow
               Am                    B7
And they'll be rainbows and we will finally know

Now run down chromatically from G (single notes) for 1 octave and start the progression for the verse

What a fantastic song, enjoy ;-)
