The Road
FRANK TURNER
Tabbed by guitaristu

First single off the new album. Enjoy.

Just standard open chords with different bassnotes illustrated by /.
Only exception is the /G# chord which I suspect Frank plays as:

/G#  : 40020x 
--EDIT: UG in its wisdom seems to be changing /G# to /Ab, 
        just play as above yeah...

of being trapped by circumstance and staying in one place

so i always keep a small bag full of clothes carefully stored

somewhere secret somewhere safe and somewhere close to the door

and ive driven across deserts driven by the irony
          C              G                     Fmaj7 E   Am
