Somebody Got Murdered

The Clash

Album: Sandinista

Lyrics c/o uwp

 

 

Chords: It sounds like there are two guitars and they

mix up the fingering from lower to higher. Here are

the two positions where they alternate.

 

E C#m A F#m B

-4-0-----4----5-0----5-2---2------------------------

-5-0-----5----5-2----7-2---4------------------------

-4-1-----6----6-2----6-2---4------------------------

-6-2-----6----7-2------4---4-----------------------

---2-----4----7-0------4---2----------------------

---0----------5--------2----------------------

 

 

Intro: The song starts with a muffled barred E keeping beat

with the snare. Then, the other guitar comes in with:

 

repeat

--7---5---4-----------5--4-----7--5--4------

--5-----------5-------5-----5-----------5---

--4-------------------4---------------------

--------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------

Then they get into heavy chords as follows:

(played in the higher position sounds best)

 

 

E C#m A

 

E F#m A

 

 

Verses:

 

E A E

Someone lights a cigarette

 

A E F#m

While riding in a car

 

E A E

Some ol' guy takes a swig

 

A E F#m

And passes back the jar

 

B A E

But where they were last night

 

A E F#m

No-one can remember

 

C#m A

Somebody got murdered

 

B E

Goodbye, for keeps, forever

 

 

E C#m A

Somebody got murdered

 

E F#m A

Somebody's dead forever

 

And you're minding your own business

Carrying spare change

You wouldn't cosh a barber

You're hungry all the same

I been very tempted

To grab it from the till

I been very hungry

But not enough to kill

 

Somebody got murdered

His name cannot be found

A small stain on the pavement

They'll scrub it off the ground

As the daily crown disperse

No-one says that much

Somebody got murdered

And it' left me with a touch

 

Somebody got murdered

Somebody's dead forever

 

/*

Now play the intro riff above these words:

*/

 

Sounds like murder!

Those shouts!

Are they drunk down below?

 

It's late, and my watch stopped

Some time ago

Sounds like murder!

Those screams!

Are they drunk down below?
