        The State of Massachusetts - Dropkick Murphy’s
----------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: PakistaniEagle77
Tuning: Standard

Alright, I have the banjo part arranged for a guitar, the best way to get a banjo-like
is to pick close to the bridge on an acoustic guitar, and maybe dampen the strings at the
with a cloth or something along those lines.  I have the Electrics capo V, which is 
they are in the recordings (DKM uses open chords almost exclusively). The banjo parts
however, not written in relation to the capo.

Intro: Banjo arr. for Guitar

Am C G Am x4

Am                                     C
She had excuses and she chose to use them
G                                   Am
She was the victim of unspeakable abuses
Am                                  C
Her husband was violent, malicious and distant
G                                     Am
Her kids now belong to the state of Massachusetts!

Am   C                  G      Am
       They've been taken away!!
Am  C                  G         E7
        They've been taken away!!

[Chorus:]

Am                        G     C
Billy was the bright one, Tommy's off his head
F          C
Mother loved them both the same
    G
At least thats what she said
Am                               G
I don't predict the future
C
I don't care about the past
F                          C
Send them both to D.S.S
G
Now you had your chance
Am                                   G
The posion stole your babies
C
The judges took your rights
F                           C         G
You can have your children or the night!!!

Am C G Am x4

Am
I supposed you've been a victim
              C
Though I suspect you may have lied
               G
Have you lost all ambition
Am
Won't you give this thing a try
Am                                       C
If you can't and you fail won't be the only loser
G                                                  Am
These kid don't stand a chance with you in their future!!

Am   C                  G      Am
       They've been taken away!!
Am   C                  G
       They've been taken away!!
F      G       F      G
