Subject: The King of Broken Hearts by Mark Chesnutt

The King of Broken Hearts by Mark Chesnutt           Written by Jim Lauderdale
------------------------------------------

This song is in Eb and I'm gonna write it down that way, but it's probably
best to capo up at the 3rd fret and play as if it was in C.

                                  Eb
The king of broken hearts doesn't ask much from his friends

                          Bb
And he has quite a few of them

G               Cm
They know he'll understand

F                      Bb     Eb Eb Bb
That's just the way it goes.

                                  Eb
The king of broken hearts doesn't know he's a king

                      Bb
He's trying to forget other things

G             Cm
Like some ol' chilly scenes

F                    Bb     Eb Eb Bb
He's walking through alone.

                                   F
CHORUS: He talks to angels and the stars start to spin
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/mark_chesnutt/king_of_broken_hearts_crd.html ]
                                   Bb
        He thinks of troubles that he's gotten in

                           C
        He recalls how his heart got broken

                                F
        And how it's still that way.

                             Eb
The king of broken hearts is so sad and wise

                        Bb
He can smile while he's crying inside

G                Cm
We know he'll be brave tonight

F                       Bb            Eb Eb Bb
'Cause he's the king of broken hearts.

SOLO (Eb Bb G Cm F Bb)

CHORUS

                                      Eb
The king of broken hearts thinks that he's an old fool

                  Bb
He's a little bit like me and you

G                          Cm
So what's a king like that supposed to do

F                  D
With all that blue time

G                Cm
We know he'll be brave tonight

F                              Eb
'Cause he's the king of broken hearts

Eb                                 Bb
He's the king of broken hearts.


Ok. And here are the chords with a capo at the third fret:

Eb=C
Bb=G
G=E
Cm=Am
F=D
D=B

It's also very cool, I think, to walk down from Bb to G (or from G to E if you
are using the capo). Also, if you are not using the capo, I find it better to
finger the chords like:
Eb:x65343
Bb:688766
G:355433
Cm:x35543
F:133211
D;x5777x
as I think they tend to blend a little better with the vocals.
