Lyrics Chord: Dropkick Murphys – Rose Tattoo


Am
The pictures tell the story
C
This life has many shades
G                                 Am
I’d wake up every morning and before I’d start each day
Am
I’d take a drag from last nights cigarette
C
That smoldered in it’s tray
G                                                  Dm
Down a little something and then be on my way

Am
I traveled far and wide
C
And laid this head in many ports
G
I was guided by a compass
Am
I saw beauty to the north
Am
I drew the tales of many lives
C
And wore the faces of my own
G
I had these memories all around me
Dm
So I wouldn’t be alone

[Pre chorus]
C
Some may be from showing up
G
Others are from growing up
Dm                                         Am
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
C
I ain’t winning no one over
G
I wear it just for you
Dm
I’ve got your name written here
Am
In a rose tattoo

[Chorus]
Am
In a rose tattoo
C
In a rose tattoo
G
I’ve got your name written here
Am
In a rose tattoo

[Verse]
Am
This ones for the mighty sea
C
Mischief, gold and piracy
G
This ones for the man that raised me
Am
Taught me sacrifice and bravery
Am
This ones for our favorite game
C
Black and gold, we wave the flag
G
This ones for my family name
Dm
With pride I wear it to the grave

[Pre Chorus]
C
Some may be from showing up
G
Others are from growing up
Dm                                        Am
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
C
I ain’t winning no one over
G
I wear it just for you
Dm
I’ve got your name written here
Dm
In a rose tattoo

[Chorus]
Am
In a rose tattoo
C
In a rose tattoo
G
I’ve got your name written here
Am
In a rose tattoo

C
In a rose tattoo
G
In a rose tattoo
Dm
I’ve got your name written here
Dm (hold)
In a rose tattoo

F
This one means the most to me
C
Stays here for eternity
G
A ship that always stays the course
Am
An anchor for my every choice
F
A rose that shines down from above
C
I signed and sealed these words in blood
G
I heard them once, sung in a song
G
It played again and we sang along

*Do the mandolin part one time*
Am C G Am

Am
You’ll always be there with me
C
Even if you’re gone
G
You’ll always have my love
Dm
Our memory will live on

C
Some may be from showing up
G
Others are from growing up
Dm                                        Am
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
C
I ain’t winning no one over
G
I wear it just for you
Dm
I’ve got your name written here
Dm
In a rose tattoo

In a rose tattoo
