[Chorus]

(chords same as Intro)

 E                                      
 I'm all lost in the supermarket.
 C#m7                                   
 I can no longer shop happily.
 A                                      
 I came in here for the special offer,
 E                     B     E          
 a guar-an-teed per-so-nal-i-ty.


[Verse 1,2]

(between  's is 1 measure, 2nd and 3rd switches are on counts 3 and 4)
 E                B         C#m         
 I wasn't born so much as I fell out.
 A                B      E              
 Nobody seemed to notice me.
 C#m                 B           A      
 We had a hedge back home in the suburb,
 Amaj7        B           E             
 over which I never could see.

E                      B           C#m
I heard the people who live on the ceiling
A                     B    E
scream and fight most scarily.
C#m                       B          A
Hearing that noise was my first ever feeling!
Amaj7                B          E
That's how it's been all around me.


[Chorus]


[Verse 3,4]

E                   B           C#m
I'm all tuned in, I see all the programs.
A                   B          E
I save coupons from packets of tea.
C#m                   B           A
I've got my giant hit discotheque album!
Amaj7               B          E
I empty a bottle, I feel a bit free.

E                         B            C#m
The kids in halls and the pipes in the walls
A                  B    E
make me noises for company.
C#m                        B             A
Long distance callers make long distance calls!
Amaj7                 B      E
And the silence makes me lonely.


[Chorus]


[Outro]

(w/ chorus progression):
 E                             
 C#m7                          
 A(maj7)                       
 E                B    E       

Then..

 E                             
                  No, it's not
 C#m7                          
 here.                It disap-
 A(maj7)                       
-peared.
 E                B    E       

Then.. (repeat this part to fade)

 E                             
 I'm all lost..        I'm all
 C#m7                          
 lost. (I'm all lost)  I'm all
 A(maj7)                       
 lost. (I'm all lost)
 E               B     E       

*END*

Intro/Chorus Details w/ Strumming Timing:

Notes: The previous tabs made this so confusing. The basic chords seem simple enough.
They are just a little repetitive and get spiced up a bit. I wouldn't take it too
seriously as this is mostly a very simple song. 

(Basics...)
 1  & .  2  & .  3  & .  4  & .   
 E                                
 /  / /  /  / /  /  /    /  / (//)
 C#m7                             
 /  / /  /  / /  /  /    /  (////)
 A                                
 /  / /  /  / /  /  /    /  / (//)
 E                                
 /  /    /  /    /  /    /  (////)

(In detail...)
 1  & .  2  & .  3  & .  4  & .   
 E       Eadd9   E       Eadd9 E   (opt: add 9's in here for flare)
 /  / /  /  / /  /  /    /  /  //
 C#m7    C#m     C#m7    C#m       (opt: lift your ring finger off and on for 7ths here)
 /  / /  /  / /  /  /    /    ///
 A       Amaj7   A       Amaj7     (opt: finger open A with 7th on C note and pull
 /  / /  /  / /  /  /    /  /  //        middle finger off and on)
 E               B*      E         (*B or Eadd9 needed here)
 /  /    /  /    /       /    ///

I was surprise there wasn't a decent tab in this site for this song. Hopefully, this is one.
If not, let me have it - you Clash fans seem pretty picky/nasty.
