RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
BREAKING THE GIRL

Somebody (Big Toe?) was right: this song is listed as "capoed on
the 4th fret".  That's really the only way to get the intonations
in the right key.

and repeat that for the verses.  (Chords for bridge and chorus
may follow later).  Here are lyrics:

I am a man cut from the know
Rarely do friends come and then go
She was a girl soft but estranged
We were the two our lives rearranged

Feeling so good that day
A feeling of love that day

CHORUS
Twisting and turning your feelings are burning
You're Breaking The Girl
She meant you no harm
Think you're so clever but now you must sever
You're Breaking The Girl
He loves no one else

Verse 2:
Raised by my dad, girl of the day.
He was my dad, that was the way.
She was a girl left alone
Feeling the need to make me her home.
I don't know what or why
the twilight of love had arrived
