From: Ben Weiss  
Subject: CRD (need LYR help): Clash, "Death or Glory"

Well, the chords were easy enough to figure out, but there's this
half-spoken part between the second and third verses to which I can't make
head or tail of the lyrics.  Anyone have them?
   I've put the chord changes in the chorus on the beat, but they're
actually slightly off.  If you listen to the song it should be easy enough
to figure out where they go.
   Not being British, I've substituted "boy" for "yob" in verse 2.

The Clash

INTRO (quiet/acoustic): D A G D  D A G D
      (then loud/electric): G D A D  G D A D

    D                          A
Now every cheap hood strikes a bargain with the world
    G                            D         A
And ends up making payments on a sofa or a girl
D                                 A
Love and hate tattooed across the knuckles of his hands
G                                      D               A
Hands that slap his kids around 'cause they don't understand how

        G         D       A                  D
CHORUS:  Death or glory becomes just another story
        G         D       A                  D
         Death or glory becomes just another story

Now every gimmick-hungry boy digging gold from rock-n-roll
Grabs the mike to tell us he'll die before he's sold
But I believe in this and it's been tested by research
He who fucks nuns will later join the church


BRIDGE: I think the chords are just D A G D, but does anyone have the


In every dingy basement on every dingy street
Every dragging handclap over every dragging beat
It's just the beat of time, the beat that must go on
If you've been trying for years, we already heard your song


                    D       A                     G        D (throughout)
BRIDGE: We're gonna march a long way, we're gonna travel a long time
        We're gonna travel over mountains, we're gonna travel over seas
        We're gonna fight you brother, we're gonna fight 'til you lose
        We're gonna raise trouble, we're gonna raise hell
        We're gonna fight you brother, we're gonna raise hell


Repeat verse & chorus riffs, end on D

the missing lyrics are:
Fear in the gun-sights,
They say lie low,
You say ok,
Don't wanna play the show,
Now all you're thinking
"Was it death or glory now?"
Playing the blues of kings,
Sure looks better now.
