I Am Trying To Break Your Heart Chords (ver 2) - Wilco


 

I Am Trying To Break Your Heart Chords
This song is played with a capo on the second fret. For the part with no chords, 
it sounds good if you put your fingers across the strings so that it mutes the sound and strum.

INTRO  A
                    Em         D
I am an American aquarium drinker
A            Em       D
I assassin down the avenue
A                      Em         D
I'm hiding out in the big city blinking
A                         Em          D
What was I thinking when I let go of you

(A   Em  D)x2

A                      Em             D 
Let's forget about the tongue-tied lightning
A                        Em           D
Let's undress just like cross-eyed strangers
A                      Em            D
This is not a joke so please stop smiling
A                           Em             D
What was I thinking when I said it didn't hurt

(A   Em  D)x2

A                              Em          D
I want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming
A                         Em            D
Take me from the inside, baby hold on tight
A                           Em              D
You were so right when you said I've been drinking
A                              Em       D
What was I thinking when we said good night

(A   Em  D)x2

A                           Em              D
I want to hold you in the Bible-black predawn
A                     Em              D
You're quite a quiet domino, bury me now
A                               Em                 D
Take off your band-aid 'cause I don't believe in touchdowns
A                     Em            D
What was I thinking when we said hello

NOT RELATIVE TO THE CAPO. 1st fret+ the real 1st fret, not the 1st fret after the capo.

A                           Em            D 
I always thought that if I held you tightly
A                             Em         D
You'd always love me like you did back then
A                          Em              D
Then I fell asleep in the city kept blinking
A                          Em           D
What was I thinking when I let you back in

N.C. 
I am trying to break your heart
I am trying to break your heart
But still I would be lying if I said it wasn't easy
I am trying to break your heart

(A   Em   D)x4

A            Em          D
Disposable Dixie cup drinker
A           Em         D
I assassin down the avenue
A                      Em             D
I'm hiding out in the big city blinking
A                         Em           D
What was I thinking when I let go of you

About the artist behind I Am Trying To Break Your Heart Chords:

Wilco is an American rock band based in Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 1993 by the remaining members of alternative country group Uncle Tupelo following singer Jay Farrar's departure from that group. Wilco's lineup has changed frequently, with only singer Jeff Tweedy and bassist John Stirratt remaining from the original incarnation. The other current members are guitarist Nels Cline, multi-instrumentalists Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen, and drummer Glenn Kotche. Wilco has released six studio albums, a live double album, and three collaborations: two with Billy Bragg, and one with The Minus 5.

Wilco's music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles, including Bill Fay and Television, and has in turn influenced music by The National and Cherry Ghost. The band continued in the alternative country of Uncle Tupelo on its debut album A.M. (1995), but has since introduced more experimental aspects to their music.

Wilco garnered media attention for its fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002), and the controversy surrounding it. After the recording sessions were complete, Reprise Records rejected the album and dismissed Wilco from the label. As part of a buy-out deal, Reprise gave Wilco the rights to the album for free. After streaming Foxtrot on its website, Wilco sold the album to Nonesuch Records in 2002. Both record labels are subsidiaries of Warner Music Group, leading one critic to say that the album showed "how screwed up the music business [was] in the early twenty-first century."[1] Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is Wilco's most successful release to date, selling over 590,000 copies. Wilco won two Grammy Awards for their fifth studio album, 2004's A Ghost Is Born, including Best Alternative Music Album.
