WESSEX BOY- FRANK TURNER- ENGLAND KEEP MY BONES

This song probably won't be so popular amongst people who aren't actually from Wessex 
and don't know what the buttercross is, but I am, so I think the song's awesome and 
deserves tabbing. There are probably plenty of errors, my ear isnt amazing.

Listen to the song to get the strumming, there are also plenty of hammers and pull-offs 
in there to make it sound interesting, but these are the chords.

VERSE:

G                                                     C
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've found,
G                                                         C
Hanging out and drinking with my friends in the cathedral grounds,
    G                                           C
And later dodging drunks as we dance along Jury Street,
      G                                            C
As we wander up town to the railway our friends to meet,


CHORUS:

        D
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
    G
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           D
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      C
I'm a Wessex Boy and when I'm here I'm home


RIFF x4


Verse:

G                                                     C
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've lost,
G                                                C
Huddling for warmth on the top step of the Buttercross,
G                                                 C
Sitting on the benches by the bridges at the riverside,
G                                                       C
Counting down the hours for the buses cause I missed my ride


CHORUS:

        D
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
    G
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           D
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      C
I'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home


BRIDGE:

B                  C               G            D
And one day I will hear this song anonymous and sweet,
B                  C                     G            D
Ringing out from a buskers guitar on the ancient city streets,
B                      C                 G         D
I'll pause a while and smile before I continue on alone,
E                                         C
And somebody else will sing the words and I'll feel like I'm home


RIFF x8 (with 'Ba Ba Ba's, increasing in volume)


CHORUS

        D
There's something about hometowns you never can escape
    G
The triumphs and the tragedies, the tawdry little fates,
    D
The welling of nostalgia and feeling kind of strange,
         C
Cause despite the little changes yeah this place still feels the same


        D
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
    G
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
    D
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
      C
I'm a Wessex Boy,
      C
I'm a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home


RIFF x4 (With 'Ba Ba Ba's)

D (4 bars, finishing with 7th fret harmonic)
