Frank Turner - Once We Were Anarchists
Tabbed by Charlie Banks
The other version was inaccurate and lazy, so I worked it out myself.
There may be 7ths/add9s/sus chords in there, but just play around with it until you have 
how you want, or listen really carefully.

                   G
Demonstrations got boring,
             C
Well it was obvious that the government was ignoring us
     Em
It's hard to drag yourself through empty streets
       F
On an empty stomach with no sleep
                      G
The shortcomings got clearer
       C
As the price we paid got dearer and dearer
       Em
It's supposed to be a case of give and take
           F
Well I was feeling the give and making the mistake
         Am                F           G
And I've heard it said the unexamined life,
Am                F                            G
Isn't much worth living, and I'm sure they're right
          Am              F                 G
But it's hard to keep on fighting the good fight
     Am                F
When no one else seems bothered
           D
Yeah, when no one's on your side


            C                   D
Because I'm young enough to be all pissed off
        G                 C
But I'm old enough to be jaded
     C                  D
I'm at the age where I want things to change
         Bm                C
But with age my hopes have faded
     C                         D
I'm young and bored of being young and bored
         Bm                           Em    D
If I was old I could say I've seen it all before
      C         D                G
In short; I'm tired of giving a shit


                          G
I've got friends who are bankers
             C
And it's an easy rhyme to call them wankers
       Em
But I must say I envy the way that they live
          F
And it's all; it's all take and no give
                           G
Well I'm playing the lone ranger
C
Riding to the rescue of 6 billion strangers
Em
Armed with only an original song
       F
And a sense that something's wrong

      C                   G/B             Am           G
And I must admit that I'm tired of saying no, all the time
             C         G/B             F                  G
Well I must admit that I don't really know what would be right
        C            B
And if politics, is helping other people
         Em        D                C
Then my political career is pretty fucked
             C                     D               G
Because the truth is I don't like people all that much


                         G
The times they aren't a-changing
       C
Yeah England's still shit, and it's still raining
      Em
And everybody's jaded and tired and bored
     F
And no one lifts a finger, because
                       G
It's just not in our culture
     C
Our culture is carrion and we're all vultures
    Em
And no one seems bothered by the state of play
    F
It seems that the stench is with us to stay
     Am           F               G
So I had a go, I tried examining life
    Am                F
It wasn't much worth living
                 G
I guess they're right
         Am                    F                   G
And I'm tired of fighting the fight that's not my fight
Am         F                 D
So is everybody else, we're all on the same side.


            C                  D
Because I'm young enough to be all pissed off
        G                 C
But I'm old enough to be jaded
    C                   D
I'm at the age where I want things to change
         Bm                 C
But with age my hopes have faded
     C                       D
I'm young and bored of being young and bored
         Bm                           Em   D
If I was old I could say I've seen it all before
   C           D
In short; I'm tired
        C                   D
And in short; I'm probably fired
        C                  D                      G
If the revolution doesn't want me, I don't give a shit.
