Love Ire & Song by Frank Turner
(Capo 3rd Fret)

I play the intro using middle finger for g string, ring finger for b string,
first finger for 2nd fret e and a string and thumb for 3rd fret e string.
Easiest way I found to do it.

Intro Part A

Intro Part B

Verse 1
Repeat Intro Part A

“Well a teacher of mine once told me
That life was just a list of disappoints and defeats
And you could only do your best,
And I said "That's a f**king cop-out, you're just washed up and your tired,
and when I get to your age I won't be such a coward"”

Em,                          G,
“But these day I sit at home, known to shout at my TV”
Bm,                                A,
“And Punk Rock didn't live up to what I hoped that it could be”
Em,                                G,
“And all the things that I believed with all my heart when I was young”
Bm,                          A
“Are just coasters for beers and clean surfaces for drugs”
G,           Em,                G,              A,
“And I packed all my pamphlets with my bibles at the back of the shelf”

Repeat Intro Part A (starting half way through, fret 3 e string)

And that the values and ideals for which many had fought and died
Had been killed off in the committees and left to die by the wayside”

Em                                     G
“But it was worse when we turned to the kids on the left”
