Chorus 1-    G
          My daddy was a bankrobber,
                               Am  G
          But he never hurt no-body.
                           C         D
          He just loved to live that way,
                 C        D          G 
          And he loved to steal your  money.

Verse 1- G
         Some is rich, and some is poor,
                            Am    G
         That's the way the world is.
                                C     D
         But i don't believe in lying back,
         C          D        G
         Sayin' how bad your  luck is.
         So we came to jazz it up,
                          Am   G
         We never loved a shovel.
                            C         D
         Break your back to earn your pay,
             C         D      G
         An' don't for-get to  grovel.

                           C         D
          He just loved to live that way

         Said i never been in prison
                            C      D
         A lifetime serving one ma-chine
            C         D          G
         Is ten times worse than  prison
         Imagine if all the boys in jail
                              Am  G
         Could now get out to-gether

         C            D    G
         While he was being clever
         Someday you'll meet your rocking chair
                                 Am   G

About the artist behind Bank Robber Chords:

The Clash were an English punk rock band, active from 1976 to 1986, part of the original wave of UK punk.[1][2] Along with punk rock, they experimented with reggae, funk, rap, dub, rock and roll and rockabilly among other roots musics.[3][4] For most of their recording career, The Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar), Paul Simonon (bass) and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion).[5] The group disbanded in early 1986, owing to lack of creative control and the loss of Headon in 1982 and Jones in 1983 due to internal friction.

The Clash were a major success in the UK from the release of their debut album. Their third album, London Calling, released in the UK in December 1979, brought them popularity in the United States when it came out there the following year. It received wide critical acclaim; a decade later Rolling Stone magazine declared it the best album of the 1980s.[6]

The Clash's style and rebellious attitude, along with their music, had a far-reaching influence on rock, alternative rock in particular.[7] Their record label's A&R director dubbed them "The Only British Band That Matters," which fans picked up and transformed into "The Only Band That Matters". In January 2003 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[8] The band wanted to play at the event, but were prevented by Joe Strummer's death in December 2002. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked The Clash #30 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[9]
