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









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

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









Then they get into heavy chords as follows:

(played in the higher position sounds best)



E C#m A


E F#m A






Someone lights a cigarette


A E F#m

While riding in a car



Some ol' guy takes a swig


A E F#m

And passes back the jar



But where they were last night


A E F#m

No-one can remember


C#m A

Somebody got murdered



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?





Pete Palmer



Go, little record go! - Pixies
