[Intro: x4]
Em   Fmaj9    Em   Fmaj9

Em                    Fmaj9
London calling to the faraway towns
Em/G                     G
Now war is declared, and battle come down
Em                    Fmaj9
London calling to the underworld
Em/G                          G
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls
Em                    Fmaj9
London calling, now don't look to us
Em/G                          G
Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
Em                    Fmaj9
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
Em/G                          G
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

[Chorus 1:]
Em                         G                D
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Em                         G                D
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin
Em                         G                D
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
Em                             D
'Cause London is drowning, and I ~~~~~~~ live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
London calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding out, and draw another breath
London calling, and I don't wanna shout
But while we were talking, I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no high
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

[Chorus 2: x2]
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river

Em   Fmaj9    Em   Fmaj9
Em   Fmaj9    Em   Fmaj9    
                    Now get this

Em                   Fmaj9
London calling, yes, I was there, too
        Em                         Fmaj9
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
Em                   Fmaj9
London calling at the top of the dial
Em                        Fmaj9
After all this, won't you give me a smile?
Em              Fmaj9          Em           Fmaj9
London calling
Em
I never felt so much alike [fading] alike alike alike

About the artist behind London Calling 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]
