...GANGSTERS... by The Specials

(Spoken):

Bernie Rhodes knows; don't argue!

Verse 1:

Am            G#        Am
 Why must you record my phone calls?
                   G#        Am
Are you planning a bootleg L-P?

Am                G#            Am
 Said you've been threatened by gangsters;
         D          C           E7
Now it's you that's threatening me.

Verse 2:

Am               G#           Am
 Can't fight cor-ruption with con tricks,
                 G#        Am
They use the law to commit crime.
                      G#              Am
And I dread, dread to think, what the future will bring,
           C         G        E7
When we're living in gangster time.

(Spoken):

Don't call me scar face!

Verse 3:

Am           G#             Am
 Can't inter-rupt while I'm talking,
                      G#           Am
Or they'll confiscate all your gui-tars,
                      G#         Am
And catch 22 says, if I sing the truth;
           D          C         E7
They won't make me an overnight star.

Verse 4:

      Am       G#        Am
Don't offer us legal pro-tection,
                 G#        Am
They use the law to commit crime.
                      G#              Am
And I dread, dread to think, what the future will bring,
           C         G        E7
When we're living in gangster time.
(Bernie Rhodes knows; don't argue!)

The chords for the line written as follows...
D C E7
They won't make me an overnight star.
should in fact be...
C G E7
They won't make me an overnight star.

Otherwise, good job!
