Verse 1:

C5                 F5
Searching for the best break 
C5                      G5
The black forties could afford them
C5                     F5
Came these ever-proud world-renowned 
F5      C5    G5
Rowdy, roving men
C5                    F5
With a firmness and a purpose 
C5                  G5
That so many did dismiss
C5                         F5
Sailed these huddled human ballasts on their 
F5        C5    G5
stinking coffin ships


Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dropkick_murphys/boston_asphalt_crd.html ]
F5                        G5
From the prison of their lonely hearts 
F5                     G5
They labored long and hard
F5               G5          (start playing intro)
Working 18 hour days for the B.A.C.


Verse 2:  play like verse 1

Intelligent, repectable 
But made of modest means 
With an independent spirit, 
So full of hopes and dreams
Opportunity denied them in a 
Doomed and starving land
Came these openhearted kindly spirits 
Of a truly threatened man


Chorus:  play like other chorus

From the prison of their lonely hearts
They labored long and hard
Working 18 hour days for the B.A.C.


Verse 3:  mostly just bass, but the guitar plays in the spots where I put he chords

Searching for the best break 
The black forties could afford them
Came these ever-proud world-renowned 
F5      C5    G5
Rowdy, roving men
With a firmness and a purpose 
That so many did dismiss
             C5
Sailed these huddled human ballasts on their 
F5        C5     G5
stinking coffin ships


Chorus:  play like other choruses

From the prison of their lonely hearts
They labored long and hard
Working 18 hour days for the B.A.C
The B.A.C.
The B.A.C.
The B.A.C.

F5  C5

That's it.  There is actally a line after "They labored long and hard" but I
couldn't hear what they were saying in the song and all the lyrics that I found
didn't have it.  Anyway, if you figure it out let me know.  Later.
