Intro

 

1st Verse [Pattern I] When they kick at your front door

How you gonna come?

With your hands on your head

Or on the trigger of your gun

 

2nd Verse [Pattern I] When the law break in

How you gonna go?

Shot down on the pavement

Or waiting in death row

 

Chorus [Pattern II] You can crush us

You can bruise us

But you'll have to answer to

Oh-the guns of Brixton

 

3rd Verse [Pattern II] The money feels good

And your life you like it well

But surely your time will come

As in heaven, as in hell

 

1st Break : 8 measures with no bass then bass enters and plays [Pattern II]

 

4th Verse [Pattern II] You see, he feels like Ivan

Born under the Brixton sun

His game is called survivin'

At the end of the harder they come

 

5th Verse [Pattern II] You know it means no mercy

They caught him with a gun

No need for the Black Maria

Goodbye to the Brixton sun

 

Chorus [Pattern II]

 

2nd Break [Pattern II]

 

1st Verse repeated [Pattern I]

 

3rd Break [Pattern I]

 

Chorus_2 [Pattern II] You can crush us

You can bruise us

Yes, even shoot us

But oh-the guns of Brixton

 

6th Verse [Pattern II] Shot down on the pavement

Waiting in death row

His game was survivin'

As they have and as they have

 

Chorus [Pattern II]

 

Outro on But oh-the guns of Brixton
