A brokedown Melody

Standard tuning

Intro
C G F

Verse 
C Em Am G


We could be here all night long...all night 
This is a brokedown melody for the wooodshed 
C               Em
I hope this old train breaks down 
Am                    G
And i could take a walk around 
You see there's no time you see 
Cause time is just melody 
With all the people in the street 
Walking fast as their feet can take them 
I might just roll through town 
And though my window's got a view 
The frame i'm lookin through 
Seems to have no concern for miles 
For now I 
I need this 
Old train to breakdown 
Oh please just 
Let me please breakdown 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jack_johnson/a_brokedown_melody_crd.html ]
Well this engine screams out loud 
Sayin the P gonna crawl westbound 
And i don't even make a sound cuz 
Gonna sting me when i leave this town 
All the people in the street 
That i never get to meet 
These tracks gonna bend somehow 
And i got no time 
That i got to get 
To where i don't need to be, so i 

I need this 
Old train to breakdown 
Oh please just 
Let me please breakdown 
Break on down 
Intro C G F
I gotta break on down 

(one strum on C and pause, then Am)
C
But you can't stop nothin 
If you got no control 
Am
Of the thoughts in your mind 
That you kept and you know 
C
That you don't know nothin 
But you don't need to know 
Am
The wisdom's in the trees 
Not the glass window's 

(Then back to normal)

You can't stop wishin 
If you dont let go 
Of the things that you find 
And you lose and you know 
You keep on rollin 
Put the moment on hold 
But the frames still bright 
With the blinds down low 

And I need this 
Old train to breakdown 
Oh please just 
Let me please breakdown 

I need this 
Old train to breakdown 
Oh please just 
Let me just breakdown      F       G

(then back to regular chords)

Oh, let me break on
