Somebody Got Murdered  The Clash

The Clash
Album: Sandinista
Lyrics c/o uwp
Chords: It sounds like there are two guitars and they
mix up the fingering from lower to higher. Here are
the two positions where they alternate.
[E] [C#m] [A] [F#m] [B]  

Intro: The song starts with a muffled barred E keeping beat
with the snare. Then, the other guitar comes in with:

Then they get into heavy chords as follows:
(played in the higher position sounds best)
[E] [C#m] [A]  
[E] [F#m] [A]  
[E]Someone lights a [A]ciga[E]rette
While [A]riding [E]in a [F#m]car
[E]Some ol' guy [A]takes a [E]swig
And [A]passes [E]back the [F#m]jar
[B]But where they were [A]last [E]night
[A]No-one [E]can [F#m]remember
[C#m]Somebody got [A]murdered
Goodb[B]ye, for keeps, f[E]orever
[E]Somebody [C#m] got [A]murdered
[E]Somebody's[F#m] dead [A]forever
And you're minding your own business
Carrying spare change
You wouldn't cosh a barber
You're hungry all the same
I been very tempted
To grab it from the till
I been very hungry
But not enough to kill
Somebody got murdered
His name cannot be found
A small stain on the pavement
They'll scrub it off the ground
As the daily crown disperse
No-one says that much
Somebody got murdered
And it' left me with a touch
Somebody got murdered
Somebody's dead forever
Now play the intro riff above these words:
Sounds like murder!
Those shouts!
Are they drunk down below?
It's late, and my watch stopped
Some time ago
Sounds like murder!
Those screams!
Are they drunk down below?
Pete Palmer
Go, little record go! - Pixies
