Frank Turner – Love Ire And Song chords ver. 2

Intro: D D/A D/F# D G A A/E (If you pluck the bottom note of each chord and then the top three strings, it sounds like how Frank plays the intro)
D D/A D/F# DWell a teacher of mine once told me that life was just a list of
G A A/Edisappointments and defeats and you could only do your best,
D D/A D/F# And I said "Well, that's a fucking cop-out, you're just washed up and you're
D G Atired, and when I get to your age, well, I won't be such a coward"
Em G BmBut these days I sit at home, known to shout at my TV and Punk Rock didn't
Alive up to what I hoped that it could be
Em GAnd all the things that I believed with all my heart when I was young are
Bm Ajust coasters for beers and clean surfaces for drugs
G Em G A D And I packed all my pamphlets with my bibles at the back of the shelf
D/A D/F# D G A A/E
D Well it was bad enough the feeling, and the first time it hit, when you
G A A/Erealised your parents had let the world all go to shit
D D/A D/F# D And that the values and ideals for which many had fought and died had been
G A A/Ekilled off in the committees and left to die by the wayside.
Em G BmBut it was worse when we turned to the kids on the left and got let down
Aagain by some poor excuse for protest
Em G BmYeah by idiot fucking hippies in 50 different factions, who are locked
Ainside some kind of 60's battle re-enactment
G Em G A G AAnd I hung-up my banner in disgust and I head for the door
D A Bm GOh but once we were young, and we were crass enough to care
Em A Em ABut I guess you live and learn, we won't make that mistake again, no
D A Bm GOh but surely just for one day, we could fight and we could win
Em A Em AAnd if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible
Bm AWell we've been a good few hours drinking, so I'm going to say what everyone's thinking
G D Em A If we're stuck on this ship and it's sinking, then we might as well have a
Bm ACos if it's still going to hurt in the morning and a better plan's yet to get forming
G D Em A G A Then where's the harm spending an evening, in manning the old barricades
D G ASo come on old friends to the streets let's be 1905 but not 1917
D GLet's be heroes, let's be martyrs, let's be radical thinkers who never have
Ato test drive the least of their dreams.
Em G Bm Let's divide up the world into the damned and safe and then ride to the
Avalleys like the old life brigade
Em G Bm And straighten our backs and we won't be afraid and they'll celebrate our
Adeaths with a national parade
D A Bm GSo come on let's be young, let's be crass enough to care
Em A Em ALet's refuse to live and learn, let's make all our mistakes again yes
D A Bm GAnd then darling, just for one day, we can fight and we can win
Em A Em AAnd if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible
D GLeave the mourning the to the morning, yes pain can be killed with aspirin
Atablets and vitamin pills.
D G A DBut memories of hope, and glorious defeat are a little bit harder to beat
