This is a B side from the our lives single, its pretty good i think, a little
different from the original tho.

In this you play fifth chords but i'v just tabbed out ordinary open chords. 
Standard tuning


Em                     C
London calling to the faraway towns
G
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
Em                     C
London calling to the underworld
G
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
Em                  C
London calling, now don't look at us
G
All that phoney beatlemania has bitten the dust
Em                    C
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 and the wheat is growing thin
Em                         G
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
Em                       D                 Em
London is drowning-and I live by the river



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

Chorus

For the outro just play the last line of the chorus.

E|7|8 |3|5
B|8|8 |3|7

It's Em and Fmaj7 for the beginning, not C! A bit awkward to play bared on the 12th fret, but it works.
