Roots Radicals

Rancid

 CF
 Took the 60 bus, out of downtown Campbell
 GFC
 Ben Zanotto he was on there he was waiting for me
 CF
 All the punk rockers and the moon stompers
 GFC
 were out on the corners where they're sparing for change
 CF
 I started thinkin, ya know I started drinkin
 GFC
 I don't really remember too much of that day
 CF
 Something struck me funny when we ran out of money
 GFC
 Where do you go now when you're only 15?
CHORUS:
 GF
 With the music execution and the talk of revolution
 DD
It bleeds in me, and it goes...
 CFG
 Give em the boot, the roots, the radicals
 CFG
 Give em the boot, ya know I'm a radical
 CFGC
 Give em the boot, the roots, the reggae on my
 CGGGGGGG
 stereo....       
VERSE 2 (Same chords)
The radio was playing, Desmond Dekker was singing
on the 43rd bus as we climbed up the hill
nothing incoming but the reggae drumming
and we all come from unloving homes
I said "why even bother" and I picked up the bottle
hey Mr. bus driver please let these people on
rude girl carol was a miniskirt girl
my blurry vision saw nothing wrong
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
 F

Ben Zanotto he was on there he was waiting for me
All the punk rockers, and the moon stompers
were out on the corner where they're sparing for change
I said the radio was playin, Desmond Dekker was singing
on the 43rd bus as we climbed up the hill
rude girl carol was a miniskirt girl,
my blurry vision saw nothing wrong
CHORUS
OUTRO - This should be easy enough to figure out, all the same chords are used.
