Don Henley
INTRO:  G    Gsus4    G    Dsus4/G  (x2)

VERSE 1:
G                      Gsus4     G                 Dsus4/G  
A little time, a little distance, a little space to think
G              Gsus4        Am7     C
Might be all we need, right now
G                     Am7              G/B            Am7
I don't know if we've had too much, or not enough to drink
Em                                  Dsus4     D 
But, we've got to get over this, somehow

CHORUS:
C               G/B               Am7              G/B       
It only takes a breath or two, to tear your world apart
C                     G/B        Em         Cadd9     D         G  Gsus4  G  Am/G  
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can break your heart

VERSE 2:
G                  Gsus4          G       Dsus4/G  
Cutting words from careless lips, softly spoken
G              Gsus4             Am7           Cadd9/D
Oh, you can do damage and never scream or shout
G                Am7            G/B                 Am7
Emotions get the best of us; we say things we don't mean
Em                                             Dsus4     D 
And it's too late to take 'em back once they're out

CHORUS:
C               G/B               Am7              G/B       
It only takes a breath or two, to tear your world apart
C                     G/B        Em         Cadd9     D            G     G  
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can break your heart

BRIDGE:
Bb   Am                G     Bb                 Am           Am                  D
Oh, can we just start over? Nobody won; what's done is done, we've got to let it go

FINAL CHORUS:
C               G/B               Am7              G/B       
It only takes a breath or two, to tear your world apart
C                     G/B        Em         Cadd9     D          G - G/A - G/B
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can break your heart
C                     G/B        Em         Cadd9     D        intro chords (end: G)
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can break your heart
