Tattoo
by Paul Heaton and David Rotheray

A F# Bm E
Sadness has filled a lonely place
A F# Bm E
Before that there was just a hole
A F# Bm E
At least now there's sadness on my face
A F# Bb E
My lower lip has finally found its role

So the wind and the rain and the snow
Had no particular place to go
So they thought they'd come and spend some time with me
They're better friends than you could ever be

[Chorus]
D E A
There's a tattoo, a small tattoo
D E A
Waiting there unpaid for you
D E
And if you ever bump into Unlucky
A F#m
Don't forget who broke your heart in two
D E A D
You'd better get there early, there's a million in the queue
E D A
Just waiting for the name on their tattoo
[end Chorus]

Emptiness has filled a vacant heart
Finally found a place for it to hide
An as I wander like a fool from bar to bar
Empty has become my greatest guide

And the tears and the pain and the despise
Looked at me through bankrupt eyes
They had nowhere else that they could land
So I invited them to take my bloody hand

[Chorus]

F Am E7 Am
So queuing for a tattoo and I can't decide the name
F Am E7 Am
I've been wondering night after night
F Am E7 Am
When they put that needle in me I'll scream your name in pain
F Am E7 A
And I hope he spells "you bastard" right

B-A-S-T-A-R-D, stick that needle deep in me
