Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

London Calling  Calling

[Em]London calling to the f[C]araway towns
[G]Now that war is declared-and battle come down
[Em]London calling to the u[C]nderworld
[G]Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
[Em]London calling, now [C]don't look at us
[G]All that phoney beatlemania has bitten the dust
[Em]London calling, see we[C] ain't got no swing
[G]'cept for the ring of that truncheon thing


[Em]The ice age is coming, th[G]e sun is zooming in
[Em]Engines stop running and the [G]wheat is growing thin
[Em]A nuclear error, but I have[G] no fear
[Em]London is drowning-and I [D]live by the river [Em]

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
London calling upon the zombies of death
Quit holding out-and draw another breath
London calling-and I don't wanna shout
But when we were talking-i saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes


For the outro just play the last line of the chorus.

short third verse
Now get this
London Calling and I was there too
well you know what they said well some of it was true
London calling at the top of the dial and after all this won't you give me a smile
London Calling London Calling
never felt so much like it like it
