To Absent Friends

Chords and lyrics for To Absent Friends by Frank Turner

E 
Heading up to town to Dave’s to get my glad rags on
E 
Tonight we’re going to get it right, we’re going to have us a good one
 
C# 
And the roll call is missing a
B 
name
C# 
Since you left things haven’t been the
A 
same
 
But I don’t  
E 
blame you, there was nothing here to make you stay
 
But I re
C# 
member the way that you’d
B 
light up a room when you
C# 
walk 
 
in,
 
The way that you’d  
A 
lead a crowd when you  
E 
sing
 
E 
Ready for a night on fire, we’re going to get out the big guns
E 
I’m electrified, surrounded, but can’t shake the feeling of still missing something or someone
 
C# 
And the roll call is missing a
B 
name
C# 
Since you left things haven’t been the
A 
same
 
But I don’t  
E 
blame you, there was nothing here to make you stay
 
But I re
C# 
member the way that you’d
B 
light up a room when you
C# 
walk 
 
in,
 
The way that you’d  
A 
lead a crowd when you  
E 
sing
 
Jamie, this one is for you.
E 
 
I’m wide awake
E 
 
in the cityscape
E 
 
You  
E 
did your time out on the road
 
One  
E 
day you stayed away for good
 
You  
E 
found a home down by the shore
 
A  
E 
place to hang your hat and  
Ab 
more
 
You sent me  
A 
postcards to tell me  
Ab 
of
 
Slowing  
B 
down and  
A 
finding 
 
 
Ab 
love
 
The thrill has  
A 
gone from the city  
Ab 
life
 
I’m not far be
B 
hind
A 
 
C# 
So you can strike my na
B 
me from the roll call,
C# 
When night fal
A 
ls I’m leaving
E 
There is nothing here to make me stay
 
When I  
C# 
get to the coast I will
B 
send back a postcard
 
To  
C# 
tell all my old friends
A 
all about my new start
E 
Jamie I will see you soon.
E 
Jamie I will see you soon.
E 
Jamie I will see you soon.
E 
Jamie I will see you soon.
