                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”

strummed Hammer ons and pull offs using D

Verse 2
Just vocals
“Well it was bad enough the feeling, and the first time it hit”

         Repeat Intro Part A (starting half way through, fret 3 e string) 
“When you realised your parents had let the world all go to sh*t
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”
         Bm                     A
“And got let down again by some poor excuse for protest”
         Em                       G
“Yeah by idiot f**king hippies in 50 different factions”
         Bm                              A
“Who are locked inside some kind of 60's battle re-enactment”
        G,           Em,            G,          A,             G,       A
“And I hung-up my banner in disgust and I head for the door” 

         D,             A,                    Bm,               G,
“Oh but once we were young, and we were crass enough to care”
                 Em,               A,                    Em,              A
“But I guess you live and learn, we won't make that mistake again, no”
        D                   A             Bm                 G
“Oh but surely just for one day, we could fight and we could win”
                   Em           A                       Em          A
“And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible”

“Well we've been a good few hours drinking”
“So I'm going to say what everyone's thinking”
          G                           D
“If we're stuck on this ship and it's sinking”
         Em            A      D
“Then we might as well have a parade”

“Cos if it's still going to hurt in the morning”
“And a better plan's set to get forming”
      G                             D
“Then where's the harm spending an evening”
    Em          A         G A 
“In manning the old barricades, “

         D                                          G            A
“so come on old friends to the streets, Let's be 1905 but not 1917, “
“let's be heroes, let's be martyrs, let's be radical thinkers”
     G                            A
“Who never have to test drive the least of their dreams”
          Em                        G
“Let's divide up the world into the damned and safe”
          Bm                           A
“And then ride to the valleys like the old light brigade”
        Em                       G
“And straighten our backs and we won't be afraid”
             Bm                          A
“And they'll celebrate our deaths with a national parade”

  D           A               Bm              G
“So come on let's be young, let's be crass enough to care”
                 Em             A                       Em           A
“Let's refuse to live and learn, let's make all our mistakes again yes”
          D                      A            Bm              G
“And then darling, just for one day, we can fight and we can win”
                   Em           A                       Em            A
“And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible”

Intro part A
“Leave the mourning the to the morning
Yeah pain can be killed
With aspirin tablets and vitamin pills”

Intro Part B but ending on D instead of A
“But memories of hope, and glorious defeat                             
Are a little bit harder to beat”
