RIFF (you can strum with a x-x-0-4-0-2 ? rather than the riff)

Everybody wants to rule the world
Must be something we get from birth
One truth is we never learn
Satelites will make space burn

D                  Bm
We've been told to keep the strangers out

D                  Bm
We don't like them starting to hang around

D                  Em7
We don't like them over town

F#m7
Across the world we are going to mow them down

CHORUS

RIFF
The reign of the super powers must be over
So many armies can't free the earth
Soon the rock will roll over
Africa is choking on their Coca Cola

D                            Bm
It's a one a way street in a one horse town

D               Bm
One way people starting to bragg around

D              Em7
You can laugh, put them dowm

F#m7
These one way people gonna mow us down

CHORUS

About the artist behind Charlie Dont Surf Tab:

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]
