Anthony John Clarke - The Broken Years


CAPO: 6th Fret



[Intro]
Em  C  G  D/F#  Em    G

[Verse 1]
                                    D
The whole family's sitting watching TV
    Em                            C       G
The only thing that makes me feel better
                     D
And no one plays the radio
    Em             C
The news is always bad


[Verse 2]
    G                                D
The kids, they've been keeping daddy up all night
Em                C
Rock 'n' Rolling, shouting, fighting
  G                      D
Tomorrow is the marching season
      Em                   C
We'll meet at the roundabout


[Chorus]
          Em              C
I want to eat at the same table
          G              D
I want to break the same bread
          C                G
I want to march down the same streets
          Am               D
I want to hear the same bands
          Em            C
I want to sing the same songs
          G            D
I want to say the same prayers
  C             G        D      G
Together we can mend the broken years


[Verse 3]
                              D
Jimmy would get married in September
Em                             C       G
First of all he had to write a letter
                 D
Requesting dispensation
        Em                  C
Just to be with the girl he loved
           G                   D
And in the end, hardly anybody came
Em                                C        Am
Mother' side all blamed it on the weather
      D              G
Three cheers for the broken years


[Chorus]
          Em              C
I want to eat at the same table
          G              D
I want to break the same bread
          C                G
I want to march down the same streets
          Am               D
I want to hear the same bands
          Em            C
I want to sing the same songs
          G            D
I want to say the same prayers
  C             G        D      G
Together we can mend the broken years


[Instrumental]

[Verse 4]
                  D
Connor's late for school again
     Em                               C       G
He's out of breath and running at the double
           D
Get his education
          Em                 C
He had to take the long way 'round
    G                            D
For even if he stayed out on the main road
Em                             C        Am
Chances are he'd run into some trouble
      D              G
Three cheers for the broken years


[Verse 5]
                                   D
With all the pretty colours on the pavement
    Em                                     C
The green and gold that lighten through it all
    G                               D
And all the little broken shops and houses
           Em                           C
With those badly spelled slogans on the wall
        G                       D
It's no wonder that everybody's leaving
        Em                        C    Am
It's no wonder at all, at all, at all
      D              G
Three cheers for the broken years


[Chorus]
          Em              C
I want to eat at the same table
          G              D
I want to break the same bread
          C                G
I want to march down the same streets
          Am               D
I want to hear the same bands
          Em            C
I want to sing the same songs
          G            D
I want to say the same prayers
  C             G        D      G       Em
Together we can mend the broken years


[Chorus]
                C
Eat at the same table
G              D
Break the same bread
C                G
March down the same streets
Am               D
Hear the same bands
Em            C
Sing the same songs
G            D
Say the same prayers
  C             G        D      G
Together we can mend the broken years


[Outro]
Em  C  G  D/F#  Em
