Robin Campbell`s Lead/Reggae Guitar & Ali Campbell`s Rhythm/Reggae Guitar and their Lyrics for
UB40`s 'Watchdogs' single taken from the 1986 album 'Rat In The Kitchen'.

(NOTE):The two Guitars play a different Chord & style for the Verse`s & Saxophone
instrumentals but play the same for the Chorus`s.In the Verse Robin sort of plays
like a ka-chunk-chunk chunk-a-chunk(for lack of a better way to describe it?playing A & Bm
it`s easy to pick out as it`s the dominant Guitar).
Ali play`s a soft staccato chop on the 2nd & 4th beat playing A & D,
(D being the relative major of Robin`s Bm)I`ll leave an example of both together on the intro.
For the Chorus`s they both play in the Reggae style using the same Chords.

[G1 = Robin`s Guitar]                  [G2 = Ali`s Guitar]
      A       Bm      D       E              A       D       E 
      EADGBE  EADGBE  EADGBE  EADGBE         EADGBE  EADGBE  EADGBE
      577655  799777  X57775  X79997         577655  XX7775  X79997 

[Intro]
       A    Bm     A    Bm     A    Bm     A    Bm     A    Bm     A    Bm     A    Bm     A    Bm    
       A    D      A    D      A    D      A    D      A    D      A    D      A    D      A    D  

[Verse One]
A          Bm              A    Bm    A        Bm                  A     Bm
  You tried to close your ears,        And you tried to close your eyes, 
A           Bm             A   Bm     A   Bm                A     Bm
  But the blasphemies keep coming,        Tempting you with lies.  

[Chorus One]
D                        A       D                  A                       
 Give thanks for your protection,  Your watchdogs of the night,
D                      A           D                      E         D
 Who hold the hungry wolves at bay,  And keep them out of sight,Out of sight.

[Verse Two]
A          Bm           A     Bm   A          Bm              A      Bm
  You just don`t understand it,      But it strikes a distant chord,
A            Bm              A      Bm     A       Bm          A    Bm
  So you look for a way of escaping,         And sanity`s restored.

[Chorus Two]
D                        A       D                  A
 Give thanks for your protection,  Your watchdogs of the night,
D                      A           D                       E          D 
 Who hold the hungry wolves at bay,   And keep them out of sight,Out of sight.

[Verse Three]
A       Bm          A   Bm    A        Bm7            A     Bm   
  You focus your direction,    Cloak tightly pulled around,
A        Bm            A     Bm   A        Bm                A    Bm
  But somewhere in the distance,   You can hear a haunting sound.

[Chorus Three] 
D                        A       D                  A
 Give thanks for your protection,  Your watchdogs of the night,
D                      A           D                       E          D
 Who hold the hungry wolves at bay,   And keep them out of sight,out of sight.

[Saxophone Middle]
A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm

[Chorus Four]
D                        A       D                  A
 Give thanks for your protection,  Your watchdogs of the night,   
D                      A           D                       E          D
 Who hold the hungry wolves at bay,   And keep them out of sight,Out of sight.

[Verse Four]
A              Bm          A    Bm   A             Bm              A     Bm
  You`re of in danger of corruption,   And you`re always running scared,
A           Bm       A     Bm   A          Bm        A          Bm
  You cannot make decisions,      You`re completely unprepared.

[Chorus Five]
D                        A       D                  A
 Give thanks for your protection,  Your watchdogs of the night,
D                      A           D                       E          D
 Who hold the hungry wolves at bay,   And keep them out of sight,Out of sight.

[Outro]
A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm    A    Bm    

[`Till Fade]
D    A    D    A    D    A    D    E    D
