Tattoo  The Beautiful South



[A]Sadness has [F#]filled a lonely [Bm]place[E]
Be[A]fore that [F#]there was just a [Bm]hole[E]
At [A]least now there's [F#]sadness on my [Bm]face[E]
My [A]lower lip has [F#]finally found its [Bb]role[E]
So the wind and the rain and the snow
Had no particular place to go
So they thought they'd come and spend some time with me
They're better friends than you could ever be
There's a [D]tatto[E]o, a small tat[A]too
[D]Waiting there [E]unpaid for [A]you
And if you [D]ever bump into Un[E]lucky
Don't for[A]get who broke your heart in [F#m]two
You'd [D]better get there [E]early, there's a [A]million in the [D]queue
Just waiting for the [E]name on their [D]tatto[A]o
(end Chorus)
Emptiness has filled a vacant heart
Finally found a place for it to hide
An as I wander like a fool from bar to bar
Empty has become my greatest guide
And the tears and the pain and the despise
Looked at me through bankrupt eyes
They had nowhere else that they could land
So I invited them to take my bloody hand
So [F]queuing for a [Am]tattoo and I [E7]can't decide the [Am]name
I've been[F] wondering [Am]night after [E7]night[Am]
When they [F]put that needle [Am]in me I'll [E7]scream your name in [Am]pain
And I[F] hope he spells[Am] "you bastard" [E7]right[A]
 B-A-S-T-A-R-D, stick that needle deep in me
