                   Reasons Not To Be An Idiot - Frank Turner
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Phil Conry*

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

after seeing frank play this live i realised that although notewise the other chords up 
here may be correct, he in fact plays the song with a capo meaning that to play it how 
was written you would need to be playing different chords relative to the capo

(if you get what i mean... probably not)

but anyway heres what i make of it, hope you like it
 

CAPO ON 2ND
 
[Intro]
G


[Verse 1]
G
You're not as messed up as you think you are

Your self-absorption makes you messier
                                                  Em
Just settle down and you will feel a whole lot better
                            C    D        G
Deep down you're just like everybody else


[Verse 2]
G
She's not as pretty as she thinks she is

Just picture her after she's had kids
                                            Em
I bet she sits at home and listens to The Smiths
                            C   D       G
Deep down she's just like everybody else


[Chorus]
Am                    D
So why are you sat at home?
                               G
You're not designed to be alone
                             Em
You just got used to saying "no"

So get up and get down and get outside
Am                        D
Cos it's a lovely sunny day
                        G
But you hide yourself away
                              Em
You've only got yourself to blame
                                   G
Get up and get down and get outside


[Verse 3]
G
He's not as clever as he likes to think

He's just ambitious with his arguing
                                                  Em
He's crap at dancing, yeah and he can't hold his drink
                           C   D       G
Deep down he's just like everybody else


[Verse 4]
G
I'm not as awesome as this song makes out

I'm angry, underweight and sketching out
                                            Em
I'm building bonfires on my vanities and doubts
                       C    D       G
To get warm just like everybody else


[Chorus]
Am                    D
So why are you sat at home?
                               G
You're not designed to be alone
                             Em
You just got used to saying "no"

So get up and get down and get outside
Am                        D
Cos it's a lovely sunny day
                        G
But you hide yourself away
                              Em
You've only got yourself to blame
                                   G
Get up and get down and get outside


[Middle 8]
D                                   F
Amy thinks that life is lacking in drama
                                               C
So she fell for horoscopes, faith-healing and karma
                                       Am
She's so wrapped up in her invisible armour
                         D
She'll never grow into herself
                                                      F
And it's OK thinking me and all my friends are just wasters
                                                         C
But saying that I can still see through her heirs and graces
                                              Am
I bet she's scared her life won't leave any traces
                          D
Caught up like everyone else


[Bridge]
                      C
That's not the point anyway
  D                                       C
Oh darling, I felt compelled to call you up to say...


[Chorus]
(let first Am ring, then come in on the D with intro rhtyhm)
Am                        D
So why are you sat at home?
                               G
You're not designed to be alone
                             Em
You just got used to saying "no"

So get up and get down and get outside
Am                        D
Cos it's a lovely sunny day
                        G
But you hide yourself away
                              Em
You've only got yourself to blame
                                   G
Get up and get down and get outside


[Outro]
(no guitar)
Get up and get down and get outside

Get up and get down and get outside
C               D
Get up and get down and get outside
Em             A7
Get up and get down and get outside
C               D           A#     G
Get up and get down and get outside
