*from 'Bloody Tourists' (1978)*


Intro:

Gm  Dm, Cm (x2)

Gm  Dm, Cm  Dm (x2)

Verse 1:

      Gm                      Cm
I was walkin' down the street,
       Gm                        Cm
Concen-tratin' on truckin' right.
          Gm                      Cm
I heard a dark voice beside of me,
             Gm                        Cm
And I looked round in a state of fright.

Bridge 1:

      Dm   Gm             Dm Cm                      Dm
I saw four faces, one mad, a brother from the gutter.
     Gm                      Dm      Cm                  Dm
They looked me up and down a bit and turned to each other.

Interlude:

Gm  Dm, Cm  Dm

Gm  Dm, Cm (n.C)
          I say:

Chorus 1:

             Gm      F   D#  Dm
I don't like cricket, oh no,
  Cm      Dm  D#
I love it.
             Gm      F   D#  Dm
I don't like cricket, oh no,
  Cm      Dm  D#
I love it.

Break:

F          A#   D#/A#      A#         D#     A#   D#/A#   A#
 Don't you walk through my words; you got to show some re-spect.
F          A#   D#/A#      A#      D#  A#  D#/A# A#       Am  D7
 Don't you walk through my words, 'cos you ain't heard me out yet.

Interlude:

Gm  Dm, Cm  Dm (x2)

Verse 2:

               Gm                      Cm
Well he looked down at my silver chain,
             Gm                  Cm
He said I'll give you one dollar.
              Gm                   Cm
I said You've got to be jokin' man,
         Gm                     Cm
It was a present from me mother.

Bridge 2:

   Dm     Gm                 Dm    Cm
He said I like it, I want it, I'll take it off your hands,
    Dm        Gm                   Dm     Cm
And you'll be sorry you crossed me, you'd better understand,
     Dm       Gm    Dm  Cm
That you're a-lone...
  Dm            Gm    Dm  Cm (n.C)
A long way from home.          And I say... 

Chorus 2:

             Gm     F   D#  Dm
I don't like Reggae, oh no,
  Cm      Dm  D#
I love it.
             Gm     F   D#  Dm
I don't like Reggae, oh no,
  Cm      Dm  D#
I love it.

Break:

F          A#    D#/A# A#     D#    A#  D#/A#    A#
 Don't you cramp me    style, don't you queer me pitch.
F          A#   D#/A#      A#      D#  A#  D#/A# A#       Am  D7
 Don't you walk through my words, 'cos you ain't heard me out yet.

Interlude:

Gm  Dm, Cm  Dm, Gm  Dm, Cm (n.C)

Verse 3:

          G#m                       C#m
I hurried back to the swimming pool,
        G#m          C#m
Sinkin' pina coladas,
          G#m                      C#m
I heard a dark voice beside me say,
          G#m                   C#m
Would you like something harder.

Bridge 3:

    D#m       G#m                 D#m C#m
She said I've got it, you want it, my harvest is the best,
    D#m    G#m                   D#m  C#m         D#m
And if you try it you'll like it, and wallow in a dreadlock holi...
G#m                          D#m
 (Dreadlock, holi, Dreadlock holi,
C#m             D#m           G#m  D#m  C#m (n.C)
 Deadlock holi, Dreadlock holiday).           And I say:

Chorus 3:

              G#m   F#  E  D#m
Don't like Ja-maica, oh no,
  C#m      D#m  E
I love her.
              G#m   F#  E  D#m
Don't like Ja-maica, oh no,
  C#m      D#m  E
I love her.

Break:

F#         B    E/B         B          E      B    E/B     B
 Don't you walk through her words; you got to show some re-spect.
F#         B    E/B         B       E   B   E/B   B         A#m D#7
 Don't you walk through her words, 'cos you ain't heard her out yet.

Interlude:

Coda:

             G#m         C#m   G#m                      C#m

             G#m        C#m   G#m                      C#m

This is impossible to play; look at your Cm!
Try to play the Gm on the 10th fret and then "walk down".

I'm struggling to understand how that Cm is "impossible to play"...it's just a Cm without the (lower) root...because with reggae you only need to upstroke on the top 4 strings...I mean you can play the whole chord if you want...but it's not always the done thing.

Sorry, my mistake, I clicked the blue Cm and only saw the first variation (Cm on the first fret, my fingers don't like that).
