This is the acoustic demo of Frightened Rabbit's "Boxing Night" It can be found on 
the State Hospital EP. I've used the lyrics from the mastered EP version of the 
song which can be found on Frightened Rabbit's Soundcloud page. However, if you 
have heard Scott perform it on their YouTube channel the lyrics will be slightly 
different. I've marked asterisks next to altered lyrics. 

Chord Instruction:
G5 - 3rd Fret Power
B5 - 7th Fret Power
C5 - 3rd Fret Power
D5 - 5th Fret Poewr


Intro: G5 (Hammer the root note in all instances of this chord)

Verse 1: 
G5
It's boxing night, 
            B5
(And) I'll celebrate in style
   G5
In boxer shorts and spirits, floor littered
     A5
With ghosts of bottles past
          G5
There's a naked hush 
  B5
Clawed only in breath and of pulse
       G5
Of our heart that is kicking
                A5                   G5
As though it is desperate to be born 


Interlude: G5


Verse 2:
G5
And I'm in hostage blind
B5
Deaf to the dim outside
     G5            
Good Glasgow could burn to it's timber* tonight
        A5
And I'd barely blink and I...
         G5
Well the clock just stopped
            B5
You can cut that on my fucking headstone*
      G5
Won't something move so I stop
          A5
Staring a hole into the phone
                

Chorus:
                 C5
You can get me at home
                 D5
With a drink to ill health
                 C5
Just me and these walls
               D5
And a beaten up chair
          G5
On boxing day 


Interlude: G5, B5, G5, A5


Verse 3:
        G5
This is boxing night
    B5
And someone lost an eye
       G5
Well I swear I've lost the last drop
            A5
Of whatever kept me awake alive
       G5
And I fell in the forth 
                   
From a heavy right hook 
       B5
To our blushed and swollen face
    G5
And in a single blow it's murdered
                 A5
And then it takes years to waste away 
     G5
And I can't call you all mine anymore
         B5
And I can't call you full stop 
     G5
But you know you can call me up anytime
            A5
Call me whatever the fuck you want


Chorus:
                 C5
You can get me at home
                    D5
With a drink to ill health 
                  C5
Just me and these walls
               D5
And a beaten up chair
                  C5
You can get me at home
                  D5     
With a drink to ill health
                 C5
Just me and these walls
              D5
And my beaten up chair
        G5
On boxing day
