Hitsville U.K.
(The Clash)

C  G   F   (organ)

C              F            C
They cried the tears, they shed the fears
F       C       F    G
Up and down the land
     C         F       C
They stole guitars or used guitars
        F         C      Am
So the tape would understand
F                G              C         F
Without even the slightest hope of a 1000 sales
               G                C             F
Just as if, as if there was, a hitsville in U.K.
                   C                  F         G      C
I know the boy was all alone, til the hitsville hit U.K.


C     F   C
They say true talent
      F        C       F  G
Will always emerge in time
      C        F          C
When lightning hits small wonder
     F          C       Am
Its fast rough factory trade
    F                    G
No expense accounts, or lunch discounts
   C              F
Or hyping up the charts
    F                 G                   C       F
The band went in, 'n knocked 'em dead, in 2 min. 59
                    C                  F         G      C
I know the boy was all alone, til the hitsville hit U.K.

I know the girl felt all alone, till the hitsville hit U.K.

    C         F         C
The mutants, creeps and musclemen
    F        C       F  G
Are shaking like a leaf
   C        F          C
It blows a hole in the radio
         F             C       Am
When it hasnt sounded good all week
   F                     G           C              F
A mike'n boom, in your living room - in hitsville U.K.

About the artist behind Hitsville Uk 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]
