I worked both of these versions out myself using a mix of tabs and adding my own

Outro:

Play G6's on top strings (highs) then hammer down the 3rd fret notes to make the full G
play mostly on the bottom strings (lows). I think this part sounds even nicer in D's and
than the main version above. The rest of the song I like more without the capo.

Rudy come from Jamaica, Rudy he can't fail..     (etc.)

Nice guy!        Euuuurrr - ooo - peeeee-an     home, you're a
safe!            Euuuurrr - ooo - peeeee-an     home.

etc.

Hope these are improvements. Send comments and rate, please.

About the artist behind Safe European Home 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]
