Here's Bruce's cover of London Calling in PA. His cover at London's Hard Rock
Calling festival will be uploaded once I get the solo figured out.

Capo on the third fret, everything relative to the capo.

Verses is Em, Fmaj, G

Em             Fmaj
London calling to the faraway towns
G
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
Em             Fmaj
London calling to the underworld
G
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
Em              Fmaj
London calling, now don't look at us
G
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
Em              Fmaj
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
G
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

CHORUS
Em                     G
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Em                    G
Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin
Em               G
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
D
London is drowning-and I live by the river

Em   Fmaj x2

Em             Fmaj
London calling to the imitation zone
G
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
Em             Fmaj
London calling upon the zombies of death
G
Quit holding out-and draw another breath
Em             Fmaj
London calling-and I don't wanna shout
G
But when we were talking-I saw you nodding out
Em              Fmaj
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
G
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

CHORUS

Solo: Em, Fmaj, G (It's really just rapid picking, but I wrote it differently)

Chorus

Em              Fmaj
London calling, I was there, too
Em                      Fmaj
An' you know what baby? Well, some of it was true!
EM             Fmaj
London calling at the top of the dial
Em              Fmaj
After all this, won't you give me a smile?

Em             Fmaj x4
London Calling
Em
   I never felt so much a' like(repeat like and fade out)
