E A D G B E
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.


[Verse 1]

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 era, but I have no fear
Em                       D                 Em
London is drowning-and I live by the river


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1 chords) 

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]

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 era, but I have no fear
Em                       D                 Em
London is drowning-and I live by the river


[Outro]

Em                         G
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
Em                       D                 Em
London is drowning-and I live by the river

This sounds much better if you play the barr chord version

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.
