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 


[Chorus]
       Am          C            
to the east to the east
    G    /G#        Am  
the road beneath my feet
Am/G   Am          C
to the west to the west
   G     /G#       Am
i havent got there yet
Am/B       C            G
and to the north to the north
Fmaj7       C
never to be caught
       Fmaj7        C
to the south to the south
   G       /G#     Am   
my time is running out

Am - bass /F /G /A /C /B /A


[Verse]
Am            Em                  Fmaj7            G
ever since my childhood i've been scared i've been afraid
C                   G                Fmaj7          D/F#
of being trapped by circumstance and staying in one place
     Am            Em                Fmaj7             G
so i always keep a small bag full of clothes carefully stored
          C                G                  Fmaj7 E      Am
somewhere secret somewhere safe and somewhere close to the door

Am                      Em                      Fmaj7        G
well ive travelled many countries ive washed my feet in many seas
               C           G               Fmaj7        D/F#
ive drunk with drifters in vienna and with punks in old dc
        Am            Em             Fmaj7     G
and ive driven across deserts driven by the irony
          C              G                     Fmaj7 E   Am
that only being shackled to the the road could ever i be free


[Chorus]
       Am          C            
to the east to the east
    G    /G#        Am  
the road beneath my feet
Am/G   Am          C
to the west to the west
  G      /G#       Am
i havent got there yet
Am/B       C            G
and to the north to the north
Fmaj7       C
never to be caught
       Fmaj7        C
to the south to the south
G       /G#        Am   
my time is running out

Am - bass /F /G /A /C /B /A


[Verse]
          Am            Em             Fmaj7        G
I've felt old before my time but now i keep the age away
   C              G                 Fmaj7         D/F#
by burning up the miles and yeah by filling up my days
        Am                Em                      Fmaj7            G
and the nights a thousand nights ive played and a thousand more to go
         C                 G                    Fmaj7    E        Am
before i take a breath and steal myself for the next one thousand shows


[Chorus]
       Am          C            
to the east to the east
    G    /G#        Am  
the road beneath my feet
Am/G   Am          C
to the west to the west
  G      /G#       Am
i havent got there yet
Am/B       C            G
and to the north to the north
Fmaj7       C
never to be caught
       Fmaj7        C
to the south to the south
G       /G#        Am   
my time is running out


[Instrumental Bit]
Am G F G C G F D/F#  x2


[Bridge]
       Am             G              F                G

          C                 G

         C                  G           
you wont find your precious answers now
   Fmaj7          D/F#
by staying in one place
        Fmaj7         D/F#  G /G#

the road beneath my feet

to the west to the west
G        /G#       Am
i havent got there yet
Am/B       C            G
and to the north to the north

my time is running out
