Key: C
Capo on 4th fret

                      C 
Did I mention he was dreaming 
                       E7 
When the devil came to town 
                    Am 
I was awoken by the screaming 
                   G 
But nobody heard a sound 
                        F 
And the lies we tell at breakfast 
                                  Am 
Won't match the lies we share for lunch 
                          E 
And the lies we serve for dinner 
                           F      G 
They?re the tallest of the bunch, yeah 
                     C 
Did I mention he was cold 
                     E7 
When he finally lost control of the ghost 
                   Am 
And the epilogue I dreaded 
                      G 
Now seemed likely to console 
                  F 
And I'm still not understanding 
                           Am 
The things he did before he left 
                            E 
And the one thing that will haunt me 
                          F               G 
Is right before his final breath, when he said 


                  C                     G 
'Oh they broke me down, yeah they broke me down 
   Dm                                    Am               G 
So I can't be your saint you see, cause I won't be hanging around 
                   C                     G 
And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down 
   Dm                                         Am                       G 
So I stood there and I held my breath cause I knew that it wouldn't be long 
                   C 
Till they broke me down 


Instrumental: C G F (4x) 

Am                 G 
And no one holds a grudge dear 
     F              C       G       Am 
Like I do, I see it through 
                G 
And you may not remember 
       F 
It was nothing much at the time 
C                     G 
But I kept it bottled inside 

E            F 
   Oh and we all know how that goes 
E            F 
   I'd given up on letting go 
C            Am                E 
  So here we are, with nothing left, dear 
               F 
And now you've left here 
          G 
And I was last to know 

                C 
Holy smokes 
                           E7 
Some say he'd given up the ghost, but he wouldn't do that 
                           Am 
I think he's hiding in the background 
                 G 
Of his favorite photographs 
                     F 
And he's living as a beggar 
                 Am 
Or maybe a millionaire 
                           E 
But the one thing that I'm sure of 
                         F                G 
Is he found some comfort there, that's fair 

                       C                     G 
Because they broke him down, oh they broke him down 
   Dm                               Am               G 
So he can't be my saint no more, he won't be hangin around 

Oh no 


Instrumental: C G F (4x) 

                   C                         G 
And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down 
         Dm                                      Am              G 
He said 'I can't be your saint no more because I won't be hangin around' 
                   C                       G 
And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down 
   Dm                                           G 
So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew that it wouldn't be long 
                     C 
Before they broke me down
