Stay Free Chords
Song: Stay Free
Band: The Clash
Album: Give 'em Enough Rope

The other tabs for this song are terrible.  I'm too lazy to tab the lead guitar (it's not
very hard to figure out anyway) so here are the chords.

G C Bm Am (x2)

G      C               Bm     Am
We met when we were in school
G             C               Bm           Am
Never took no shit from no one, we weren't fools
    Am                 G
The teacher says we're dumb
      G           Em
We're only having fun
   Em           C
We piss on everyone
       G        C Bm Am
In the classroom

G C Bm Am

When we got thrown out i left without much fuss
An' weekends we'd go dancing
Down streatham on the bus
You always made me laugh
Got me in bad fights
Play me pool all night
Smokin' menthol

G C Bm Am

I practised daily in my room
You were down the crown planning your next move
Go on a nicking spree
Hit the wrong guy
Each of you get three
Years in brixton

G C Bm Am

I did my very best to write
How was butlins?
Were the screws too tight?
When you lot get out
Were gonna hit the town
We'll burn it fuckin' down
To a cinder

G C Bm Am

    Bm                    Em
Cos years have passed and things have changed
      C                   D
And I move anyway I wanna go
     Bm               Em
I'll never forget the feeling I got
       C                    G
When I heard that you'd got home
         Bm               Em
And I'll never forget the smile on my face
       C                    D
'cos i knew where you would be
    Bm               Em
And if you're in the crowd tonight
C               G
Have a drink on me

       G
But go easy
     Bm
step lightly
      D
     G
stay free

G C Bm Am (until end)


Please rate.

About the artist behind Stay Free 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]
