Frank Turner - Wessex Boy
England Keep My Bones (2011)

Tabbed by Sam Brown


Main Riff:


E-2----------------3------|
B-3-0--------------3------|
G-2----------------0------|
D-0----------------0-4-2-0|
A------------------2------|
E------------------3------|


^^^^
Keep playing the chords, but take your finger off the B for the first chord and 
use your third finger to play the riff on the second chord. 
Sorry if I haven't made this clear enough!



On the verse use hammer-ons on the low E to the 2nd fret, then to the 3rd fret to 
change chords from D to G.
You should be able to work out which notes of the chord to hammer on, just listen to the song.



D                                                     G
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've found,
D                                                         G
Hanging out and drinking with my friends in the cathedral grounds,
D                                               G
And later dodging drunks as we dance along Jury Street,
D                                                 G
As we wander up town to the railway our friends to meet,

        A                               Em
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
    G
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           A                                  Em
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
       G                               D
I'm a Wessex Boy and when I'm here I'm home


D                                                     G
Let me tell you all a little story of the things I've lost,
D                                                G
Huddling for warmth on the top step of the Buttercross,
D                                                G
Sitting on the benches by the bridges at the riverside,
   D                                                       G
Of counting down the hours for the buses cause I missed my ride
  
        A                                Em
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
    G
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           A                                   Em
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
        G                                            Bm
I'm a Wessex Boy, a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home


Bm                  G               A           D
And one day I will hear this song anonymous and sweet,
Bm                  G                     A           D
Ringing out from a buskers guitar on the ancient city streets,
Bm                   G                     A              D
I'll stand along while and smile before I continue on the road,
A                                         G
And somebody else will sing the words and I'll feel like I'm home



E---10--7--5-------------------------|
B------------7--5--3--3--0-----------|
G--------------------------2---------|
D----------------------------4--2--0-|
A------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------|



        A                             Em
There's something about hometowns you never can escape
    G
The triumphs and the tragedies and those of little faith
    A                        Em
The welling of nostalgia and feeling kind of strange,
     G
Cause despite the little changes yeah this place still feels the same

        A                              Em
There's something about coming back to your hometown again,
    G
The place where you grew up and where you found your firmest friends,
           A                                  Em
And though none of them still live here, I've got nowhere to go,
       G
I'm a Wessex Boy,
       G                               D
I'm a Wessex boy and when I'm here I'm home
