Frank Turner – Four Simple Words chords
Frank Turner - Four Simple Words This is as close to what Frank plays as I can deduce, I know for a fact there is at least one area where he transitions through three different chords, however, I cannot hear this at all, and I cannot make out the chords from his hands on the video I am using. *The symbols used in this tab are visual representations of what should be done. A '~' means hold the chord, a '.' represents staccato, 'X' is an open strum. **I hope you enjoy playing this song :) -INTRO-C~ E~Because we're all so very 21st century,Am~ Dm~you're probably listening to me on some form of portable stereo.C~Maybe you're sitting at the back of the bus,E~or it's running up your sleeve and you're across from your boss,Am~ Dm~or you're sitting in your bedroom on your own with the lights down low.Dm~ G~I'd like to teach you four simple words, so that next time you come to a showC~ Fmaj7~you can sing those words back at me, like they're the only words that you know.-INTRO/CHORUS-CI want to dance.EI want to dance.Am DmI want lust and love and a smattering of romance.CBut, I'm no good at dancing,Eand yet I have to do something.AmTonight I'm gonna play it straight,DmI'm gonna take my chance.CI want to dance.-VERSE-AmHeigh ho.

Frank has now recorded this song for the album and all lyrics and music are finalised, when I can find a clear finished version of the song, I'll update any and all lyrics that require it.
