       ROCK THE CASBAH--THE CLASH
      -----------------------------

A7                                 Em7
Now, the king told the boogie men,

            G7                  Dm7
--More--(4%)
you have to let that raga drop.

    A7                        Em7
The oil down the desert way

         G7                    Dm7
has been shaking to the top.

    A7                        Em7
The sheik he drove his cadillac

          G7                   Dm7
he went a cruisin down the ville.

    A7                        Em7
The Muezzin was a standing

       Fmaj7
On the radiator grille.

chorus:

   Dm7                A7  G7
Shareef don't like it.

Em7       Fmaj7  Em7           A7
Rock the Casbah. Rock the Casbah.

  Dm7                 A7  G7
Shareef don't like it.

Em7      Fmaj7   Em7         A7
Rock the Casbah. Rock the Casbah.


By order of the prophet
We ban that boogie sound.
Degenerate the faithful
With that crazy Casbah sound.
But the Bedouin, they brought out the electric camel drum.
The local guitar picker got his guitar picking thumb.
As soon as the Shareef had cleared the square,
They began to wail.

Chorus

Now over at the temple
Oh, they really pack em in.
The in crowd say it's cool
To dig this chanting thing.
But as the wind changed direction
and the temple band took five
The crowd got a whiff
Of that crazy casbah jive.

Chorus

The king called up his jet fighters,
He said, you better earn your pay.
Drop your bombs down between the minarets
Down the casbah way.
As sson as the Shareef was chauffered out of there,
The jet pilote tuned to the cockpit radio blare.
As soon as the Shareef was outta their hair
The jet pilots wailed.

Chorus to extro.

About the artist behind Rock The Casbah 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]
