Capo 2nd fret

              Em       D
Up rolled the riot van
               Am                      Em D
And sparked excitement in the boys
     Am                            Em D
But the policemen look annoyed
     Am                                 Em D Am
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

G                            Bm                                Am       D
  They got a chase last night from men with truncheon’s dressed in hats
G                               Bm                               Am
  They didn’t do that much wrong, still ran away though for the laugh
just for the laugh

                   Em         D
"And please just stop talking
         Am                             Em D
'Cause they won't find us if you do.
   Am                            Em D
Oh, those silly boys in blue.
 Am                                    Em D Am
Well, they won't catch me and you."

G                              Bm                        Am       D
  "Have you been drinking, son? You don't look old enough to me."
G                          Bm                                Am                     D
  "I'm sorry, officer, is there a certain age you're supposed to be? 'Cause nobody told me."

             Em           D
And up rolls the riot van
           Am                              Em D
And these lads just wind the coppers up
         Am                                    Em D
They ask why they don't catch proper crooks
         Am                                    Em D Am
They get their address and their names took

But they couldn't care less

[SOLO Chords]
G Bm Am D (x2)

[SOLO Tabs]

         Em         D
Thrown in the riot van
    Am                               Em D
And all the coppers kicked him in
      Am                             Em D
And there was no way he could win
     Am                             Em D Am
Just had to take it on the chin
