Hi some Clash for you all now...

Intro- |G    |G     |G     |Am  G|  
       |G    |C  D  |C  D  |G    |
Chorus 1-    G
          My daddy was a bankrobber,
                               Am  G
          But he never hurt no-body.
                           C         D
          He just loved to live that way,
                 C        D          G 
          And he loved to steal your  money.

Verse 1- G
         Some is rich, and some is poor,
                            Am    G
         That's the way the world is.
                                C     D
         But i don't believe in lying back,
         C          D        G
         Sayin' how bad your  luck is.
         G
         So we came to jazz it up,
                          Am   G
         We never loved a shovel.
                            C         D
         Break your back to earn your pay,
             C         D      G
         An' don't for-get to  grovel.

Chorus 2- G
          Daddy was a bankrobber 
                               Am  G
          But he never hurt no-body
                           C         D
          He just loved to live that way
                 C        D         G
          And he loved to take your money

Verse 2-     G
         The old man spoke up in a bar
                              Am    G
         Said i never been in prison
                            C      D
         A lifetime serving one ma-chine
            C         D          G
         Is ten times worse than  prison
         G
         Imagine if all the boys in jail
                              Am  G
         Could now get out to-gether
                                         C      D
         Whadda you think they'd want to say to us?
         C            D    G
         While he was being clever
         G
         Someday you'll meet your rocking chair
                                 Am   G
         'Cos that's where we're spinning
                                    C         D
         There's no poiunt to wanna comb your hair
         C         D        G
         When it's grey and thinning

Great tab...I play it using this...

One small thing, lyrically: The entire "hole in the wall" thing is to illustrate how escape is possible because "I CAN find that hole in the wall", and "they never will". Cheers!
