D                     A
High Street shops are boarded up,
        Bm                   G
and the terrace it is fenced in.
D                       A
See-through shields are walled across
    Bm                G
the way that you came in.
            D                A
But there's no need to get excited,
       Bm                      G
As the lorries bring the bacon in,
           D                  A
'Cause the housewives are all singin',
        Bm        G    A Bm
"Groovy times are here a-gain."

[as above]
D                 A
They discovered on Black Saturday,
         Bm                    G
That mobs don't march, they run (they run)
D                     A
So you you can excuse the nervous triggerman,
        Bm                  G
for this once jumping the gun.
D                        A
They were picking up the dead,
      Bm               G
Out of the broken glass,
D                     A
Yes, it's number one, hit radio says
          Bm            G
"Groovy times are here at last."


E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo---vy times,
E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo---vy times,
E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo---vy times.

The intake is on the uptake,
        Bm                  G
the acceleration's pretty grim.
D                  A
I can remember his first appearance,
        Bm                    G
now look what's happened to him.
D              A
They put him in a dog suit,
             Bm         G
like nineteen sixy four.
D                    A
King of early evening ITV,
             Bm              G
"Groovy times forever more."

E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo-vy times.

About the artist behind Groovy Times 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]
