Green Day I fought the law
From a sound bite off some website (Clash cover)
Tabbed by Liam
Email: guitar_rocker_47@hotmail.com

This is a power chord version of the classic, (tabbed by me only) 
Damn easy to play. If you don't have the song, don't worry you could purchase the
clash's great album 'the clash' which I think is the original or if you have msn 
Messenger you could add me then I would send you the song
Please rate this cos I worked it out by myself and it took a while, Thanks!
