X-Ray Style  Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros

The only other tab ive seen for this is just horribly wrong.
I've done this for Andrew Greer. I fucking love and miss you, buddy!!
This song is simple, listen and play along for the rhythm.
Chords: E B A F#m
[E]I see a million walk the [B]city mile
[E]The tickertape kings and the [B]juveniles
[A]Will anybody tell me which w[E]ay to go
[A]Will anybody come back on the [F#m]C.B. radi[A]o
[E]I'm counting the stars and the t[B]elegraph poles
[E]And each one represents the [B]hopes of a soul
[A]You'd think that God wouldn't [E]be so hard
[A]When you see all the little c[F#m]hildren running, [A]running in the backyard
( Tab from: )
[E]On a Mississippi gourd with a [B]Sub-Sahran song
[E]Somebody is wailing in the fina[B]ncial district sun
[A]Can anybody feel the distance t[E]o the Nile
[A]I wanna live and I [F#m]wanna dance a[A]while
[E]Gonna make like Eddie on my [B]rockabilly train
[E]Gonna beat out the blues on my [B]ball and chain
[A]Oh, you can't pull a hold-up with a [E]Be-Bop gun
[A] There's people living now
who aint [F#m]got no heart and ain't n[A]ever had none
(surely, youve got it by now)
Down on the border they crawl all the way
To get a clip of living with a clean-all spray
Can anybody feel the distance to the Nile
I wanna live and I wanna dance awhile
You can't pull a hold-up with a Be-Bop gun
There's people living now
who aint got no heart and ain't never had none
I hear a payphone ringing out on murder mile
The sucker who picks up gets his number dialled
And all the sparkling waters that ever flowed
Could never wash down this town so clean that it glowed
And I need to see in an x-ray style
I need some rock art that don't come in a vial
Can anybody feel the distance to the Nile
I wanna live and I wanna dance awhile
