Tattoos  Frank Turner

This will be a bonus track on the new album 'Tape Deck Heart'
This hasn't been tabbed yet and it's quite simple so here it is -
although it's a bit sketchy at the moment, even Frank himself doesn't
seem to have grasped exactly how he wants it to go yet from the handful
of live versions of Youtube! But you won't go far wrong with these chords:
G - 320033
C - 332010
E7 - 020100
A7 - x02020
D - xx0232
G5 - 3x0033
G7 - 3x0001
Cm - x35543
D7 - xx0212
Em - 022000
[G] Oh it's payday, yes it's payday
I've got my [C]paycheque from the [G]man
Cause there's not so many jobs that I can [E7]get these days
With these [A7]marks all over my [D]hands
But I'm gonna [G5]take that cheque I'm gonna [G7]head across the track
To the [C]wrong side of this [Cm]town
I'm gonna [G5]open the door, i'm gonna [E7]bask in the roar
Of that fa[A7]miliar buzzing [D]needle [G]sound
Because the [D]ink in my skin where the [G5]needle went in
How [D]ever many years a[G5]go
Has left [C]marks on my arms and they [Am]say who I am
[D7]Everywhere that I [G5]go
Some [D]people have none, some have [G5]ones that they're ashamed of
[D]Most people think that we're [G5]fools
Some [C]people don't get it and some [G5]people don't [E7]care
And [C]some of us we [D]have tattoos[G]
Oh it's fading, yes it's fading
Some of the things that I believed back then
Yes the skin has started sagging and the ink has started running
And I've got buddy tattoos with people who aren't my friends
Oh I've even got black X's from back when I was straight edge
So crack open a beer friends now and let's make a pledge
If we had the luck to live our lives a second time through
We'd be sure to get the same tattoos
We've got [C]hearts for the lovers
And playing [A7]cards for the gamblers
Black Flag [Em]bars for the punks
Sailing [D]ships for the ramblers
We've got [C]skulls for the living
And the [A7]pain pays our dues
[C]Some of us we [D]have tat[G]toos
Oh [C]some of us we [D]have tat[G]toos
Oh [C]some of us we [D]have tat[G]toos[E7]
Yes [C]some of us we [D]have tat[G]toos[D] [G]
