                     John Cougar Mellencamp

                    (From the album "Uh-huh")


Yes, even more JCM.  This is one of my favourite JCM songs.
The next will probably be "The Authority Song". Once again,
this is from a book of Mellencamp chords, not my own dodgy
interpretation.

[Verse I]

              A       G/A
Well, some people ain't no damn good.
               A                             G/A
You can't trust `em, you can't love `em.  No good deed goes unpunished.
      A              G/A
And I don't mind being their whippin' boy.
     A                 G/A
I've had that pleasure for years and years

          A                         G/A
No, no, I never was a sinner.  Tell me, what else can I do?
       A                         G/A
Second best is what you get till you learn to bend the rules
    A                           G/A
And time respects no person and what you lift up must fall
        A                        G/A
They're waitin' outside to claim my crumblin' walls.

       E
Saw my picture in the paper, read the news around my face.

And now some people don't want to treat me the same.


[Chorus]

               A        G        D
When the walls     come tumblin' down;
         A            G                D
When the walls   come crumblin', crumblin';
         A            G              D         A
When the walls   come tumblin', tumblin'  down.


(Repeat Intro)


[Verse II]

          A              G/A
Well some people say I'm obnoxious and lazy,
    A              G/A
I'm uneducated, my opinion means nothin'.
    A            G/A
But I know I'm a real good dancer.
      A                                G/A
Don't need to look over my shoulder to see what I'm after.

    A                            G/A
Everybody's got their problems.  Ain't no new news here.
        A                            G/A
I'm the same old trouble you've been havin' for years.
      A                                               G/A
Don't confuse the problem with the issue, girl.  It's perfectly clear.
       A               G/A
Just a human desire to have you come near.

        E
Want to put my arms around you, feel your breath in my ear.

You can bend me, you can break me but you better stand clear.


[Chorus]

         A              G        D
When the walls     come tumblin' down;
         A            G                D
When the walls   come crumblin', crumblin';
         A            G              D
When the walls   come tumblin', tumblin'
G          D         A
Crumblin', crumblin' down.


[Chorus]

               A
When the walls     come tumblin' down;
         A
When the walls   come rumblin', rumblin';
         A
When the walls   (when the walls) come tumblin', crumblin'  down.

        E
Want to put my arms around you, feel your breath in my ear.

You can bend me, you can break me but you better stand clear.


[Chorus]

               A        G         D
When the walls     come tumblin' down;
         A            G                D
When the walls   come crumblin', crumblin';
         A            G              D
When the walls   come tumblin', tumblin'
G          D
Crumblin', tumblin'

               A                        G         D
When the walls  (when the walls)   come tumblin' down;
         A                            G                D
When the walls (when the walls)  come crumblin', crumblin';
         A            G              D
When the walls   come tumblin', tumblin'
G          D
Crumblin', tumblin'


               A                        G         D
When the walls  (when the walls)   come tumblin' down;
         A            G                D
When the walls   come crumblin', crumblin';
         A            G              D
When the walls   come tumblin', tumblin'
G          D        A
Crumblin', tumblin' down
