New Ukulele Song "Broken Bottles, Shattered Glass"

Written by Jay Fuller





Cstr F
This, love
F+c F Am
Was born by the sea
Am+c Am F
Just like you and me
F+c F Am
You held my hand
Am+c Am Dm
Played footsie in the sand

A#
Now you're gone
F C Dm
You left me in the past
A#
Scared it was wrong
F+c C F
Broken bottles, shattered glass

F+c F Am
I wrote you a note
Am+c Am F
But you just let it float
F+c F Am
Like styrofoam debris
Am+c Am Dm
Soakin' up the sea

A#
No more calls
F C Dm
No more whispers in my ear
A#
Make me feel small
F+c C A#7+5
Go ahead, throw your bottle of beer!

A#
That don't change the love we had
Dm
That don't make the good times bad
F
Even if the oceans freeze
A#7+5
You can't take my memories


A#
Broken bottles, shattered glass
Dm
Empty beer cans flying past
F
Empty vows and broken dreams
C F
Torn asunder at the seams!

F+c F Am
And so we end
Am+c Am F
Barely even friends
F+c F Am
Gone our separate ways
Am+c Am Dm
Though love refused to fade

A#
It's still here
F C Dm
Livin' by the sea
A#
Broken bottles
F C
Shattered dreams

(repeat bold, end on F)

THE END
