Intro:

| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* | 
| Em* | C* |


Verse 1:
Em*                    C7*    
London calling to the faraway towns,
                             G            
Now that war is declared and battle come down.
Em*                   C7*   
London calling to the underworld,
                                  G 
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls.
Em                  C7   
London calling, now don't look at us,
                                G 
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust.
Em                     C7    
London calling, see we ain't got no swing,
                           G 
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing. 


Chorus 1:
Em                     G
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in,
Em                       G 
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin.
C                    G 
A nuclear error, but I have no fear,
Em                     D 
London is drowning-and I live by the river.


Verse 2:
Em*                    C7*   
London calling to the imitation zone,
                        G 
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone.
Em*                     C7*    
London calling upon the zombies of death,
                     G 
Quit holding out and draw another breath.
Em*                  C7*    
London calling and I don't wanna shout,
                               G 
But when we were talking I saw you nodding out,
Em*                     C7*    
London calling, see we ain't got no highs,
                         G 
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes.


Chorus 2:
Em                     G
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in,
Em                       G 
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin.
C                    G 
A nuclear error, but I have no fear,
Em                     D 
London is drowning-and I live by the river.


Instrumental (with Lead Piano Accordion):
| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* | (Wah, ah, ah-aha-hah!)


Chorus 3:
Em                     G
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in,
Em                       G 
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin.
C                    G 
A nuclear error, but I have no fear,
Em                     D 
London is drowning-and I live by the river.


Bridge:
| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* |
| Em* | C* | (Sing it now)


Verse 3:
Em*                   C7*
London calling, yeah, I was there, too,
                                   G 
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
Em*                    C7*  
London calling at the top of the dial, 
Em                    C 
After all this, won't you give me a smile? 


Coda:
Em*             C7*    
London calling...
Em*             C7*   
London calling...
Em                      
'Ne-ver fe-lt s-o mu-ch a-l-i-v-e. (Fade)

P.A. (Over)
"Jo-e Strum-mer"

Shane McGowan:
"Let's hear it for Joe! ...Eh"
