Break Down Jack Johnson Chords

Break Down Jack Johnson Chords

Verse
(C) I hope this old (Em) train breaks down.
(Am) Then I could take a (G) walk around and
(C) See what there (Em) is to see
(Am) Time is just a (G) melody

With all the (C) people in the street
Walking (Em) fast as their feet
Can take them, (Am) I just roll through town. (G)

And though my (C) window’s got a view,
Well, the (Em) frame I’m looking through,
Seems to (Am) have no concern for me now. (G)

So for now I… (C) I need this here train (Am) old train to (G) break down
(C) Oh, please just (Am) let me please (G) breakdown

Bridge

(C) (Em) (Am) (G) (C) (Em) (Am) (G)

Verse

(C) Well, this engine (Em) screams out loud,
(Am) Centipede gonna (G) crawl west bound.
(C) So I don’t even (Em) make a sound cause
(Am) It’s gonna sting me when I (G) leave this town.
And all the (C) people in the street
That I’ll (Em) never get to meet
These (Am) tracks don’t bend somehow. (G)
And (C) I got no time
that I (Em) got to get to where
(Am) I don’t need to be. (G)

So I…

(C) I need this here train (Am) old train to (G) break down
(C) Oh, please just (Am) let me please (G) breakdown.
(C) I need this here (Am) old train to (G) break down
(C) Oh, please just (Am) let me please (G) breakdown
(G) I wanna (F) break on (C) down.
(G) But I (F) can’t stop now. (C)
(G) Let me (F) break on down. (C) (G)

Verse

(F)But you (C) can’t stop nothing if you (Em) got no control
Of the (Am) thoughts in your mind that you (G) kept in, you know.
You (C) don’t know nothing, but you (Em) don’t need to know.
The (Am) wisdom’s in the trees, not the (G) glass windows.
You (C) can’t stop wishing if you (Em) don’t let go
The (Am) things that you find and you (G) lose you know.
You (C) keep on rolling, put the (Em) moment on hold.
The (Am) frame’s too bright so put the (G) blinds down low.
And…

(C) (Em) (Am)
(G) I wanna break on (C) down. (Em) (Am)
(G) But I can’t stop now. (C)
