The[A] chor[E]d pro[F#m]gressi[D]on throughout the whole song is this:
(all these chords are strummed 3x) A F#m A D A E
(these are each strummed once) A D A E
The p[A]olice walked in for[F#m] Jimmy Jazz
I s[A]aid, he ain't here, but[D] he sure went past
[A]Oh, you're looking for[E] Jimmy [A]Jazz[D] [A] [E]
[A]Sattamassagana[F#m] for Jimmy Dread
[A]Cut off his ears and chop[D] off his head
[A]Police cam looking for[E] Jimmy [A]Jazz[D] [A] [E]
[A]So if you're gonna take a message[F#m] 'cross the town
[A]Maybe put it down somewhere[D] over the other side
[A]See it gets to[E] Jimmy [A]Jaz[D]z[A] [E]
[A]Don't you bother me, [F#m]not anymore
[A]I can't take this tale[D], oh, no more
[A]It's all around[E], Jimmy [A]Jazz[D] [A] [E]
[A]J-a-zee [F#m]zee [A]J-a-zed [D]zed
[A]J-a-zed z[E]ed Jimmy Ja[A]zz[D] [A] [E]
And then it [A]sucks, he said, suck that
[A]So go look[F#m] all around, [A]you can try your luck, brother
[D]And see what you found
But I [A]guarantee you[E] it ain't your [A]day your [D]day, [A]it ain't
[E]your day.
[A]Chop Chop!

There's another riff played after the solo, but it's pretty much the same
type of scale thingy. I hope this makes some sense to you. The Clash rule!
