      THIS IS THE WAY WE MAKE A BROKEN HEART     Rosanne Cash


Ab                   Eb                       Db        Ab
Just one more kiss, she'll have to miss this night with you
          Ab             Db           Eb
Now your guilty of this secret love as I am too
            Ab                            Db
You'll get used to telling lies, feeling sorry when she cries
              Ab  
Now that the strings are attached, she'll catch on
               Eb           Fm                 Eb            Ab     Eb
We've done our part Oh and this is the way we make a broken heart
Ab                    Eb      Db       Ab
Lesson #1 we've just begun to hurt her so
           Ab             Db          Eb
And with lesson 2 she'll long for you when lights are low
       Ab                       Db
And we get to lesson 3 when she gets down on her knees
                 Ab                                     Eb
And begs you to stop at the door just before she comes apart
   Fm                         Eb     Ab
Oh this is the way we make a broken heart
           Db                               Ab
Now we've laid a trail of tears for her to follow
            Db                                  Eb
And we've thought of every line that she might swallow
           Ab                 Eb      Db         Ab   
And with lesson 4 there'll be no more for her to bear
        Ab             Db                   Eb
And on some dark night we'll dim the lights on this affair
      Ab                          Db
Then she'll find someone new and he'll likely hurt her too
                Ab                            C              C#
There must be millions just like you and me practiced in the art
   Fm                 Eb              Ab
Oh this is the way we make a broken heart
    Fm                Eb             Ab
Oh this is the way we make a broken heart
Fm                 Eb             Ab
This is the way we make a broken heart.
