OLD CLASH FAN FIGHT SONG - BILLY BRAGG
======================================

Not sure if this is 100% right (especially the chorus), transcribed from seeing him 
Youtube footage and a live recording of the song. Lyrics come from a live boot, so may 
from other times he's played it.  Any comments welcome

Listen to the song (obviously) to get the right timing.

G		    C	     D
I've got a mate who lives in Vermont
		    C	       G
He couldn't find the music he wanted
		   C	    D
Sick and tired of the corporation
			     C	   G
He went and started his own radio station
C		G
Now he's on the air each day
D			G
Telling folks about a different way
C			G
Plays Billy Bragg and a bit of Green Day
     D
And 'I'm So Bored With The U.S.A.'

G	Cmaj7
Woah-oh-oh-oh
D		  G
People are on the move
G	Cmaj7
Woah-oh-oh-oh
D
People got a lot to prove


I've got a buddy who delivers the post
Up and down the North-East Coast
When the Clash came to town
He'd never miss them
He still wants to bust the system
But he has to go to work
That doesn't make him some kind of jerk
Put food on the table, you know how that feels
It doesn't mean he's lost his ideals

Woah-oh-oh-oh
People are moving on
Woah-oh-oh-oh
George Bush will soon be gone

C			G
The Clampdown is still coming down hard
D			   G
Police and Thieves are all over my yard
C			       G
But these heavy manners don't worry me
D
Cos I'm a heavier dude than I used to be

Woah-oh-oh-oh
People are moving on
Woah-oh-oh-oh
George Bush will soon be gone

   G   D C
Co-operation, not competition
   G   D C
Co-operation, is not sedition


[Play outro like 'Remote Control' by The Clash]:

G G D D D C C G G G
G G D D D C C G G G
G G D D D C C G G G
G G D D D C C G G G
G G D D D C C C G

I myspace mailed Billy asking about the chords for this song, and he personally replied saying that it was G,C,D,C,Em progression (a typical clash and billy progression)

So there's a sneaky Em in there its extremely short in between the C and going back to the D. Listen to the song and watch the youtube vids and you can see and hear it.

Also, the second part of the verses (and all the chorus) is played as Barre chords. The exact same ones but barre. But thanks, you figured out the odd chord in the chorus (if it is used) for me. I was going to try the normal 7th for the barre chord, as i just went to see him. But it's fairly obvious where you go to barre chords.

Wow, a personal response? That's awesome. Shall update the tab with the Em when I have some more time on my hands.
