Long Live the Queen  Frank Turner

Standard Tuning: EADGBe
A (Strum twice then mute and strum) X4
(Same strumming pattern)
[A]I was sipping on the whiskey when I got the call yeah,
[F#m]My friend Lex was lying in a hospital,
[Bm]She'd been pretty sick for about half the year,
[E]But it seemed that this time the end was drawing near.
[A]So I dropped my plans and jumped the next London train,
[F#m]I found her laid up and in a lot of pain,
[Bm]Her eyes met mine and then I understood,
[E]That the weather forecast wasn't [E7]looking too good.
[A]So I sat and spun her stories for a little while,
[F#m]Tried to raise her mood and tried to raise a smile,
[Bm]But she silenced all my ramblings with a shake of her head,
[E]Drew me close and listen this is [E7]what she said now.
[A]You'll live to[F#m] dance another da[Bm]y,
But now you'll have to [E]dance,
[E7]For the two of us,[A]
[A]So stop looking[F#m] so damn depress[Bm]ed,
And sing with all your [E]heart,
The Queen is dead yeah.
Verse chords same as before:
Chorus chords as before except for ending:
[A]So stop looking[F#m] so damn depress[Bm]ed,
And sing with all your heart,
The Queen is d[E]ead.
[Bm]And South London's not the s[E]ame, any[Bm]more
The Queen is d[E]ead, ye[Bm]s!
And the last of the g[E]reats,
Has finally gone to [Bm]bed.
Final verse same chords but single, soft strums without pick:
Final chorus same chords but end on F#
