[Verse]

Am                               
The pictures tell the story
C
This life has many shades
G                                 Am
I’d wake up every morning and before I’d start each day
Am
I’d take a drag from last nights cigarette
C
That smoldered in it’s tray
G                                                  Dm
Down a little something and then be on my way

Am
I traveled far and wide
 C
And laid this head in many ports
G
I was guided by a compass
Am
I saw beauty to the north
Am
I drew the tales of many lives
C
And wore the faces of my own
G
I had these memories all around me
Dm
So I wouldn’t be alone


[Pre chorus]

C
Some may be from showing up
G
Others are from growing up
Dm                                         Am
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
C
I ain’t winning no one over
G
I wear it just for you
Dm
I’ve got your name written here
Am
In a rose tattoo


[Chorus]

Am
In a rose tattoo
C
In a rose tattoo
G
I’ve got your name written here
Am
In a rose tattoo


[Interlude]

Am  C  G  Am

[Verse]

Am
This ones for the mighty sea
C
Mischief, gold and piracy
G
This ones for the man that raised me
Am
Taught me sacrifice and bravery
Am
This ones for our favorite game
C
Black and gold, we wave the flag
G
This ones for my family name
Dm
With pride I wear it to the grave


[Pre Chorus]

C
Some may be from showing up
G
Others are from growing up
Dm                                        Am
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
C
I ain't winning no one over
G
I wear it just for you
Dm
I’ve got your name written here
Dm
In a rose tattoo


[Chorus]

Am
In a rose tattoo
C
In a rose tattoo
G
I’ve got your name written here
Am
In a rose tattoo

C
In a rose tattoo
G
In a rose tattoo
Dm
I’ve got your name written here
Dm
In a rose tattoo


[Verse]

F
This one means the most to me
C
Stays here for eternity
G
A ship that always stays the course
Am
An anchor for my every choice
F
A rose that shines down from above
C
I signed and sealed these words in blood
G
I heard them once, sung in a song
G
It played again and we sang along


[Interlude]

[Bridge]

Am
You’ll always be there with me
C
Even if you’re gone
G
You’ll always have my love
Dm
Our memory will live on

C
Some may be from showing up
G
Others are from growing up

[Chorus]

Am
In a rose tattoo
C
In a rose tattoo
G
I’ve got your name written here,
Am
In a rose tattoo
Am
In a rose tattoo
C
In a rose tattoo
G
With pride I’ll wear it to the grave for you
C
In a rose tattoo
G
In a rose tattoo
Dm
I’ve got your name written here,
Am
In a rose tattoo
C
In a rose tattoo
G
In a rose tattoo
Dm                                        Am
Signed and sealed in blood I would die for you 




Am, C, G, Am x2 and then, for the ”woooah” it's C, G, Dm, Am. Then back to the 
first pattern, and C, G, Dm, Am for the next ”woooah”. The last thing they do is 
one strum on G and one strum on Am. And there you have it, Rose Tattoo!

^try to listen to the ryhtm, it'll help you a lot. It's pretty hard to write down but I play it something like DDUU DUD and repeat(D is downstrum, U is upstrum).

And yeah, I know the "this one means the most to me" part is a bit of, but I'm working on it :)

I think the solution is F instead of Am.


F
This one means the most to me
C
Stays here for eternity
G
A ship that always stays the course
Am
An anchor for my every choice
F
A rose that shines down from above
C
I signed and sealed these words in blood
G
I heard them once, sung in a song
G
