Verse 1:
               Am
Look what you started
             F                 G
I seem to be coming out of my skin
                    Am
Look what you've forgotten here
             F                  G
The bandages just don't keep me in
                C   F           C   F
And when it was over I woke up alone
                C   F           C   F
And when it was over I woke up alone


Chorus 1:
         Am        G
And they cut me to ribbons
    F          C
and told me to drive
           Am      G
I got your name tattooed
  F          C
inside of my arm
  Am            G
I called for my father
       F          C
but my father had died
                  F
While you told me fortunes
    G
in American Slang


(Repeat Intro once)


Verse 2:
                Am
And look at the damage
             F
The fortunes came
               G
for the richer men
While we were left
     Am
with gallows
                    F
Just waiting for us liars
                 G
to come down and hang
                C   F
And when it was over
           C   F
I woke up alone
                C   F
And when it was over
           C   F
I woke up alone


Chorus 2:
         Am        G
And they cut me to ribbons
    F          C

           Am      G
I got your name tattooed
  F          C
inside of my arm
  Am            G
I called for my father
       F          C
but my father had died

While you told me fortunes

Bridge:
Am                    G
  And here's where we died
               F
that time last year
              C
And where the angels
           Am
and devils meet
            G
And you can dance with
                 F
the queen if you need
             C
And she will always keep your
F              G
cards close to her heart
C                    F
  Oh so close to her heart
                      C   F
before they tear you apart


Chorus 3:
         Am        G
And they cut me to ribbons
    F          C
and told me to drive
           Am      G
I got your name tattooed
  F          C
inside of my arm
  Am            G
I called for my father
       F          C
but my father had died
       Am             G
And we called for our fathers
        F           C
but our fathers had died
                  F
While you told me fortunes
    G        C
in American Slang
                  F
While you told me fortunes
    G        C(hold)

It was about time someone tabbed this in standard tuning. Great tab, thank you.

To me, it sounds that the 2nd chord of the verse is C instead of F. Could be wrong, but it sounds better imo.

in the verses, Fm7 works better than F major. Much easier to bounce between c and F quickly and more subtle. Still use the barre F major for the chorus. I have seen a few youtube vids of Brian Fallon playing it like this. Try it. It's nice
