FRANK TURNER: POETRY OF THE DEED G chord in intro and chorus: E------------------------------- B-0-1-1-0-0-1-1-0-0-1-0-1-3-3-3- G-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0- D-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0- A-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2- D-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3- G Em C G Em F C G Am Em They're coming out of the walls, they're coming up through the streets, F C they're quicksilver wracked by some invisible beat. G Am Em Right outside of your door the very stones come alive. F C Am They are the spring in the step, the distant look in the eyes. F Am Put your Baudelaire away F G and come outside and play. Em C G Me and all my friends are poets of the deed, Em C G we're exactly what this country needs. Em C G We scratch until we're drunk, we drink until we bleed. Em F C We are what we believe. G Am Em Pentameter in attack, iambic pulse in the veins, F C free verse powered of the street light mains, G Am Em an Iliad played out without a shadow of doubt F C Am between the end of the club and the sun coming out. F Am Leave Kerouac at his desk, F G we have romance in our risks. Em C G Me and all my friends are poets of the deed, Em C G we're exactly what this country needs. Em C G We scratch until we're drunk, we drink until we bleed. And here’s what we believe. Em C before we get bored, let's be inspired, Em C let's ignore the applause and set the theatre on fire, Em C fight every war like the drunks in the choir, Am D put our art where our mouths are: Poetry of the deed. C C/B Am enough with words and technical theses, C C/B Am let's grab life by the throat and live it to pieces. C C/B Am We can choose, we can change, G D and if we don't, we're just afraid of living life C C/B like we're loved and in love and alive Am to all the things we could be if we just believed that G C D/F# life is too short to be lived without poetry. Bm D If you've got soul darling now come on and show it me. G C D/F# But life is too long to just sing the one song, Bm D C so we'll burn like a beacon and then we'll be gone
