Broken Man’s Lament Recorded by Emmylou Harris Written by Mark Germino
G C G I was once a broken man I was once a broken fool D7 Lost my wife and children to one basic broken rule G C G Now I live my life in silence though I'm not quite in a shell C G I drink and listen to that song a whiter shade of pale C G Oh a whiter shade of pale
C G I was a good shade tree mechanic so I sent myself to school D7 They smoothed out my rough edges in my hands they put new tools G C G The instructor once he told me I could work on any line C G I could tune and make a diesel sing just like Patsy Cline C G Oh just like Patsy Cline
C G Well I met my wife to be through my mother's best friend son D7 She'd been a barroom singer she was as good as anyone G C G But I asked her to stop singing and the girl she did not flinch C G Next day she went and bought that man a brand new crescent wrench C G Oh a brand new crescent wrench
C G Well we had three fine children as eight years went on by D7 I learned to supervise a line my knuckles stayed bone dry G C G But after supper I kept hearing her by the kitchen radio C G Singing sweet but desperate harmony a little bit too low C G Oh a little bit too low
C G She left three months later I'd just come home for lunch C G The note said easy come hard go but still love you so much C G She said I don't know if I'll be back or if you'll want me if I come C G But if and when that happens dear you better let my sweet dream run
C G Oh let my sweet dream run
