From: Ben Weiss  
Subject: CRD (need LYR help): Clash, "Death or Glory"

Well, the chords were easy enough to figure out, but there's this
half-spoken part between the second and third verses to which I can't make
head or tail of the lyrics.  Anyone have them?
   I've put the chord changes in the chorus on the beat, but they're
actually slightly off.  If you listen to the song it should be easy enough
to figure out where they go.
   Not being British, I've substituted "boy" for "yob" in verse 2.

DEATH OR GLORY
The Clash

INTRO (quiet/acoustic): D A G D  D A G D
      (then loud/electric): G D A D  G D A D

    D                          A
Now every cheap hood strikes a bargain with the world
    G                            D         A
And ends up making payments on a sofa or a girl
D                                 A
Love and hate tattooed across the knuckles of his hands
G                                      D               A
Hands that slap his kids around 'cause they don't understand how

        G         D       A                  D
CHORUS:  Death or glory becomes just another story
        G         D       A                  D
         Death or glory becomes just another story

Now every gimmick-hungry boy digging gold from rock-n-roll
Grabs the mike to tell us he'll die before he's sold
But I believe in this and it's been tested by research
He who fucks nuns will later join the church

CHORUS

BRIDGE: I think the chords are just D A G D, but does anyone have the
    lyrics?

CHORUS

In every dingy basement on every dingy street
Every dragging handclap over every dragging beat
It's just the beat of time, the beat that must go on
If you've been trying for years, we already heard your song

CHORUS

                    D       A                     G        D (throughout)
BRIDGE: We're gonna march a long way, we're gonna travel a long time
        We're gonna travel over mountains, we're gonna travel over seas
        We're gonna fight you brother, we're gonna fight 'til you lose
        We're gonna raise trouble, we're gonna raise hell
        We're gonna fight you brother, we're gonna raise hell

CHORUS

Repeat verse & chorus riffs, end on D

About the artist behind Death Or Glory 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]
