Somebody Got Murdered
The Clash
Album: Sandinista
Lyrics c/o uwp


Chords:   It sounds like there are two guitars and they
          mix up the fingering from lower to higher.  Here are
          the two positions where they alternate.

  E     C#m    A    F#m    B
-4-0-----4----5-0----5-2---2-------------------------|
-5-0-----5----5-2----7-2---4-------------------------|
-4-1-----6----6-2----6-2---4-------------------------|
-6-2-----6----7-2------4---4-------------------------|
---2-----4----7-0------4---2-------------------------|
---0----------5--------2-----------------------------|


Intro:  The song starts with a muffled barred E  keeping beat
        with the snare.  Then, the other guitar comes in with:

repeat
--7---5---4-----------5--4-----7--5--4------|
--5-----------5-------5-----5-----------5---|
--4-------------------4---------------------|
--------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------|
        Then they get into heavy chords as follows:
        (played in the higher position sounds best)


E        C#m          A

E        F#m          A


Verses:

E                A   E
Someone lights a cigarette

      A      E    F#m
While riding in a car

E            A       E
Some ol' guy takes a swig

    A      E        F#m
And passes back the jar

B                   A    E
But where they were last night

A      E   F#m
No-one can remember

C#m          A
Somebody got murdered

     B               E
Goodbye, for keeps, forever


E        C#m       A
Somebody       got murdered

E         F#m        A
Somebody's      dead forever

And you're minding your own business
Carrying spare change
You wouldn't cosh a barber
You're hungry all the same
I been very tempted
To grab it from the till
I been very hungry
But not enough to kill

Somebody got murdered
His name cannot be found
A small stain on the pavement
They'll scrub it off the ground
As the daily crown disperse
No-one says that much
Somebody got murdered
And it' left me with a touch

Somebody got murdered
Somebody's dead forever

/*
Now play the intro riff above these words:
*/

Sounds like murder!
Those shouts!
Are they drunk down below?

It's late, and my watch stopped
Some time ago
Sounds like murder!
Those screams!
Are they drunk down below?
