Vital signs - Frank Tuner Tabbed by Sean O'Reilly Frank's got this song on his website, You can all thank 'slghtlystoopid' ofr letting me know =] http://www.frank-turner.com/tabs/02VS.jpg I tabbed it out not knowing the high e was tuned to an F#, the tab's still right. Except the chords have different names now. Now, I'm not so sure what happens at the bridge.. Tuning: EADGBf# The main riff is based around a B chord I think f#|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-| B |--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-| G |--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-| D |--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-2-| A |--2-2-0-2-2-2-2-0-2-| E |--------------------| The high e and b strings are left open for the F#, Abm and A, this is done by playing route of the chord with your thumb. F# Abm A f#|--0----0----0---| B |--0----0----0---| G |--3----4----6---| D |--4----6----7---| A |--4----6----7---| E |--2----4----5---| Intro: B Riff Verse 1: B Riff This country is my canvas I leave paint trails as I go. E I'm painting a picture F# B Riff That you can only see from outer space. B Riff My bedroom is your sofa, I take my breakfast on the train. E F# Abm B Riff I'm tired and I'm dirty, and not a second goes to waste. Chorus: A E I'll be dead but never dying, and I say that with a smile Abm F# It's just my way of trying to be aliive. Verse 3: B Riff Well I'll never get to grey hair And I'll never be in the black, E F# B Riff But I can tell stories that most can hardly dream. B Riff Dreaming is a luxury, Like stopping-staring and beauty sleep. E I'll stop when I'm finished, F# B Riff Abm And sleep is for the weak. Chorus: A E I'll be dead but never dying, and I say that with a smile Abm F# It's just my way of trying to be aliive. A E Heaven's in the half light, and that's where I reside, Abm I got a whiskey and a wry smile B I check my vital signs. Bridge: F# And when I'm gone, A The world revolves, and life goes on, So mark no grave, A Abm F# A Forget my name. A Abm F#(Let Ring) If the song remains And everybody's got a drink and a smile, F# Well, that's just fine by me yeah. Chorus: A E Heaven's in the half-light, and that's where I reside, Abm I got a whiskey and a wry smile F# I check my vital signs. A E I'll be dead but never dying, and I say that with a smile Abm B Riff It's just my way of trying to be aliive. Outro: B Riff (Play till death) Says Frank.
