Broken Piano

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		Thanks to Axe who figured out the key to this song,  
without that I'd never start working on it. 
And thanks to Shantel who went trough it and corrected 
my mistakes, without that I would never got it finished. 
Thank you!! 
 
 
The song is best played in a Drop-D tuning, but it works fine  
with standard-tuning as well.

Verse 1 D Bm G * G/F# There's an old grand piano, alone in the heart of the desert Em A ** Standing upright in the shine of the full moon above D Bm G * G/F# They say it was left there a long time ago in the 60's Em A ** By a man who had written a song to the woman he loved Verse 2 Now it's falling apart from the sand and the heat and the decades Rattlesnakes live in the space by the rusty old wires They say that the song was a hit, we would all recognize it A beautiful melody only love could have inspired,

D Em A ** But love has a way of changing from sunlight to shadow D Em A ** Love has a way of changing from gold into tin G D/F# And all that's left to recall what has been G D/F# Is a song they know from L.A. to Berlin Em A D And a broken piano in the Arizona desert wind

Intrumental (Same as intro) Verse 3 There are those who have camped at the site of that strong wooden statue Who says that it plays when the first morning sunray breaks through They gaze at that sad instrument with the cactus beside it A shrine or a tombstone depending on your point of wiew, Repeat chorus G D All that's left to recall what has been G D Is a song they know from L.A. to Berlin Em A D And a broken piano in the Arizona desert wind Em A D Em Asus A D Em Asus A Asus/D *** a broken piano in the Arizona desert wind ----------------------------------------- Licks:
