The Clash album (UK Version) – The Clash
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: childofbodem
Email: bradleyion@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Note – You can play with power chords or barre chords, just see what works for you. I 
do a mix of both :)
These are all the chords, so there are no solos. These are just Joe’s
Parts. Comment, rate and correct if you want. Will tab out Mick’s parts once I’ve 
figured them out.

With a panda car crawling around

Can't get no gear
F             G
Can't make no money
F               G    A   D
Can't get outta here

Big business it don't like you
It don't like the things you do
You got no money
So you got no power
They think you're useless
An' so you are - puuuuuuunnnnnk!

They had a meeting in Mayfair
They got you down an'
They wanna keep you there
It makes them worried
Their bank accounts
That's all that matters
And you don't count

Can't make no progress
Can't get ahead
Can't stop the regress
Don't wanna be dead

Look out' those rules and regulations

Who needs the Parliament?
Sitting making laws all day
They're all fat and old
Queuing for the House of Lords

C G    F
Repression - gonna start on Tuesday
C G    F
Repression - gonna be a Dalek
C G    F
Repression - I am a robot
C G    F
Repression - I obey
