		   Reasons Not To Be An Idiot - Frank Turner
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Phil Conry*

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

after seeing frank play this live i realised that although notewise the other chords up 
here may be correct, he in fact plays the song with a capo meaning that to play it how 
was written you would need to be playing different chords relative to the capo

(if you get what i mean... probably not)

but anyway heres what i make of it, hope you like it


CAPO ON 2ND


INTRO
G


VERSE 1
GYou're not as messed up as you think you are
Your self-absorption makes you messier
EmJust settle down and you will feel a whole lot better
C D GDeep down you're just like everybody else
VERSE 2
GShe's not as pretty as she thinks she is
Just picture her after she's had kids
EmI bet she sits at home and listens to The Smiths
C D GDeep down she's just like everybody else
CHORUS
Am DSo why are you sat at home?
GYou're not designed to be alone
EmYou just got used to saying "no"
So get up and get down and get outside
Am DCos it's a lovely sunny day
GBut you hide yourself away
EmYou've only got yourself to blame
GGet up and get down and get outside
VERSE 3
GHe's not as clever as he likes to think
He's just ambitious with his arguing
EmHe's crap at dancing, yeah and he can't hold his drink
C D GDeep down he's just like everybody else
VERSE 4
GI'm not as awesome as this song makes out
I'm angry, underweight and sketching out
EmI'm building bonfires on my vanities and doubts
C D GTo get warm just like everybody else
Repeat the CHORUS ^ MIDDLE 8
D FAmy thinks that life is lacking in drama
CSo she fell for horoscopes, faith-healing and karma
AmShe's so wrapped up in her invisible armour
DShe'll never grow into herself
FAnd it's OK thinking me and all my friends are just wasters
CBut saying that I can still see through her heirs and graces
AmI bet she's scared her life won't leave any traces
DCaught up like everyone else
BRIDGE
CThat's not the point anyway
D COh darling, I felt compelled to call you up to say...
CHORUS Am (play once & let ring) D So why are you sat at home?
GYou're not designed to be alone
EmYou just got used to saying "no"
So get up and get down and get outside
Am DCos it's a lovely sunny day
GBut you hide yourself away
EmYou've only got yourself to blame
GGet up and get down and get outside
OUTRO (no guitar) Get up and get down and get outside Get up and get down and get outside
C DGet up and get down and get outside
Em B7Get up and get down and get outside
C D A# GGet up and get down and get outside
