Verse 1:
               Am
Look what you started
             F                 G
I seem to be coming out of my skin
                    Am
Look what you've forgotten here
             F                  G
The bandages just don't keep me in
                C   F           C   F
And when it was over I woke up alone
                C   F           C   F
And when it was over I woke up alone


Chorus 1:
         Am        G
And they cut me to ribbons
    F          C
and told me to drive
           Am      G
I got your name tattooed
  F          C
inside of my arm
  Am            G
I called for my father
       F          C
but my father had died
                  F
While you told me fortunes

Verse 2:
                Am
And look at the damage
             F
The fortunes came
               G
for the richer men
While we were left
     Am
with gallows
                    F
Just waiting for us liars
                 G
to come down and hang
                C   F
And when it was over
           C   F
I woke up alone
                C   F
And when it was over
           C   F
I woke up alone

Bridge:
Am                    G
  And here's where we died
               F
that time last year
              C
And where the angels
           Am
and devils meet
            G
And you can dance with
                 F
the queen if you need
             C
And she will always keep your
F              G
cards close to her heart
C                    F
  Oh so close to her heart
                      C   F
before they tear you apart


Chorus 3:
         Am        G
And they cut me to ribbons
    F          C
and told me to drive
           Am      G
I got your name tattooed
  F          C
inside of my arm
  Am            G
I called for my father
       F          C
but my father had died
       Am             G
And we called for our fathers
        F           C
but our fathers had died
                  F
While you told me fortunes
    G        C

While you told me fortunes

It was about time someone tabbed this in standard tuning. Great tab, thank you.

To me, it sounds that the 2nd chord of the verse is C instead of F. Could be wrong, but it sounds better imo.

in the verses, Fm7 works better than F major. Much easier to bounce between c and F quickly and more subtle. Still use the barre F major for the chorus. I have seen a few youtube vids of Brian Fallon playing it like this. Try it. It's nice
