In the City, by The Jam
Tabbed By Mishpit

[Intro]
C G D G  (play 6 times.  Bass comes in on 3rd, drums on 5th).

[Verse 1]
G                      C                       G
In the city there’s a thousand things I wanna say to you,
G                C                       G
But whenever I approach you, you make me look a fool.
Em                            C                     D
I wanna say, I wanna tell ya, about the young ideas,
         C                    D  Dsus4  D
But you turn with all ya fears.

[Verse 2]
G                       C                      G
In the city there’s a thousand faces that are shining light,
G                 C                 G
And all of their faces, look under twenty five.
Em                                  C                 D
They wanna say, they gonna tell ya, about the young ideas,
       C                          D  Dsus4  D
About this and now ya said your bit.

[Bridge]
G                 D      G D   D                      C
(scrape plectrum down string),And I know what your thinking,
C        G    D     G     D                 Em
instead they carry crap, but ya better not listen man,
        C                        D  Dsus4  D
because the kids know where its at.

[Verse 3]
G                     C               G
In the city there’s a thousand men in uniform,
G                        C                  G
And I thought they never had the right, to kill a man.
Em                              C               D
We wanna say, we gonna tell ya, about a young idea,
           C                               D   Dsus4  D
And if it don’t work at least we say we tried.

[End]
oi (shout)
C G D G
         In the city. (x4)
 
G                      C                       G          C G D G
In the city there’s a thousand things I wanna say to you.

Dang. I thought at first that you had the "intro riff" chords totally wrong, but I put on the song and I hear that you are right. It's that damn bassline that I keep thinking is driving the guitar. Don't mistake the two!
