Achy Breaky Heart       (midi)

 

A ~ A ~ A

1. You can tell the world you never was my girl,

E

you can burn my clothes up when I am gone.

 

You can tell your friends just what a fool I've been,

A

and laugh and joke about me on the phone.

 

A

2. You can tell my arms : Go back into the farm!

E

You can tell my feet to hit the floor.

 

You can tell my lips to tell my fingertips,

A

they won't be reaching out for you no more.

 

A

But don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart,

E

I just don't think he'll understand.

 

But if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart,

A

he might blow up and kill this man. + Instr.: A E - A

 

A

3. You can tell your Ma, I moved to Arkansas,

E

you can tell your dog to bite my leg.

Or tell your brother Cliff, whose fist can tell my lips,

A

he never really liked me anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A

4. Or tell your Aunt Louise, tell anything you please,

E

myself already knows I'm not O.K.

 

Or you can tell my eyes to watch out for my mind,

A

it might be walkin' out on me one day.
