Frank Turner - Plea From A Cat Named Virtute Chords

[Intro]
G C F C


[Verse 1]
G                                 
   Why don’t you ever want to play?
C
   I’m tired of this piece of string
D
   You sleep as much as I do now and you
C                   G        D/F#
  Don’t eat much of anything
G
  I don’t know who you’re talking to
C
  I’ve made a search through every room
D
  But all I found was dust that moved
      C               G          D/F#
  And shadows of the afternoon


[Chorus 1]
    G
And listen
            C
About those bitter songs you sing
            Am
They’re not helping anything
           C        G
They won’t make you strong


[Verse 2]
G
  So we should open up the house
C
  Invite the tabby two doors down
D
  You can ask your sister if
C                       G             D/F#
  She doesn’t bring her basset hound
G
  And as for things you shouldn’t miss
C
  Tape hiss and the modern man
D
  Cold war and card catalogues
C                      G           D/F#
  To come and join us if they can

G
  For girly drinks and parlour games
C
  We’ll pass around the easy lie
D
  Of absolutely no regrets
C                   G            D/F#
  Then later maybe you could try
G
  To let your losses dangle off
C
  The sharp edge of the century
D
  We’ll talk about the weather or
C                  G          D/F#
  How the weather used to be


[Chorus 2]
         G
And I’ll cater
             C
With all the birds that I can kill
          Am
Let their tiny feathers fill
      C
Disappointment
G
Lie down
          C
Lick the sorrow from your skin
            Am
Scratch the terror and begin
       C            G
To believe you’re strong


[Instrumental]
G C F C


[Bridge]
G            D#            Em               C
All you ever want to do is drink and watch TV
C                  G               C
Frankly that thing doesn’t really interest me
  G                  D#
I swear I’m going to bite you hard
    Em             C#
And taste your tinny blood
   D#                 D              Em               Am
If you don’t stop the self-defeating lies you’ve been repeating
          C
Since the day you brought me home
              G       C F C 
I know you’re strong
              G       C F C  
I know you’re strong
              G       C F C  
I know you’re strong
              G       C F C  
I know you’re strong


[Outro]
G
