[Verse]
Em                    E/F
London calling to the faraway towns
         Em                  G
Now that war is declared and battle come down
Em                    E/F
London calling to the underworld
     Em                           G
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
 
(start doing all downstrokes now)
Em                  E/F
London calling, now don't look at us
         Em                     G
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
Em                      E/F
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
 Em                        G
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

[Chorus]
    Em                     G
The Ice Age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Em                     G
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin
Em                        G
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
     Em                      D~
'Cuz London is drowning, and I live by the river

[Verse]
Em                    E/F
London calling to the imitation zone
Em                      G
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
Em                      E/F
London calling upon the zombies of death
Em                   G
Quit holding out-and draw another breath

(start doing all downstrokes now)
Em                   E/F
London calling-and I don't wanna shout
    Em                       G
But while we were talking- I saw you nodding out
Em                     E/F
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
  Em                         G
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

[Chorus]
    Em                     G
The Ice Age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Em                     G
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin
Em                 G
A Nuclear Era, but I have no fear
     Em                      D~
'Cuz London is drowning, and I live by the river

Verse 3: (All downstrokes)
Em                   E/F
London calling, yes, I was there, too
        Em                         G(Fill)  
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
Em                    E/F
London calling at the top of the dial
Em                        G(Fill)
After all this, won't you give me a smile?

London  Calling...
