I Knew Prufrock Before He Got Famous - Frank Turner

---------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by James Oliver (jamesdoliver@googlemail.com)

I don't think the chords are quite this straight forward, and I'm yet to see Frank play
to know what he's actually doing. But for now, these chords work, and I shall update it
I have seen what is actually played. I decided to work out the chords because I have not 
them anywhere on the internet, and that is a shame because "I Knew Prufrock..." is
Turner at his briliant best! Email me if you have any suggestions for changes to chords etc.

Let's begin at the beginning

Am
We're lovers and we're losers

Heroes and we're pioneers

F
We're beggars and we're choosers

D				 E
Skirting round the edges of the ideal demographic

D
We're almost on the guest list

C
We're always stuck in traffic

C
We've watched our close associates

A
Often play their parts

G
Chatting up the it girls

F
And they're tearing up the charts

D					      E
While we were playing with coppers to get our rounds in at the bar

D					     C
We're the C team with the the almost famous old friends of the stars


C		    Am
Justin is the last great romantic poet

G				   F
He's the only one among us who is ever gonna make it

D				  E
We planned the revolution from a cheap Southampton bistro

D					 C
I don't remember details, but there were English boys with Banjos

C				       Am
Jay is our St George and he's standing on a wooden chair

G						F
And he sings songs and he slays dragons and he's losing all his hair

D			    E
And Adam is the resurrected spirit of Gram Parsons

D				   C
In blood instead of Rhinestone and living in South London

     E				F
And no one's really clear about Tommy's job description

	 D				C
But it's pretty clear he's vital to the whole damn operation

    	 D				       E
And Dave Danger smiles at strangers, Tre's the safest the girl I know

    D						    C
And Zo and Harps will scamper off to victory in the City we call home

			C
And we won't change are ways
	         G                   F
We will proud remain, when the glory fades, when the glory fades


	  C				   Am
Yeah I am sick and tired of people who are living on the b-list

	     G				       F
Yeah they're waiting to be famous, and they're wondering why they do this

      D			  	  E
And I know I'm not the one who it habitually optimistic

	    D					 C
But I'm the one who's got the microphone here so just remember this

     C			      Am
Well life is about love, lost minutes and lost evening

      G				    F
About fire in our bellies and about furtive little feelings

	D			       E
And the aching amplitudes that set our needles all flickering

	 D				   C
And they help us with remembering that the only that's thing left to do is live

	      Am			       G
After all the loving and losing, after all the heroes and the pioneers

F				    G				C
The only thing that's left to do is get another round in at the bar.
