CHEAT

 

(Jones/Strummer)

 

Album: Burning London: The Clash Tribute

 

[Note: Since I haven't heard this entire song, the positions

of the chords may be slightly wrong. Corrections are welcome!]

 

 

INTRO

 

D (hit once- hold out), E (hit once- hold out) [x3]

 

E (hit in an eight note rhythm for two measures)

 

VERSE 1

 

A (let ring) D (let ring)

I get violent when I'm fucked up

A (let ring) D (let ring)

I get silent when I'm drugged up

A (let ring) D (let ring) E (build up)

I want excitement, if I don't get none I go...wild

 

VERSE 2

 

A D

I don't know what the fuck to do about it

A D

If you play the game you get nothing out of it

A D E (build up)

You'll find out for yourself your trying to be good...good

 

CHORUS

 

C

You better cheat, cheat

F

No reason to play fair

G A

Cheat, cheat you can't get anywhere

C E D C# A E

Cheat, cheat if you can't win

 

VERSE 3 (same guitar part as verse 2)

 

Nobody knows what the fuck they're doing

It's beyond your control and Friday nights a ruin

If you wanna survive you better learn how to..lie

 

CHORUS

 

C

You better cheat, cheat

F

No reason to play fair

G A

Cheat, cheat you can't get anywhere

C D E (hit on 1 count- rest on 2,3,4)

Cheat, cheat if you can't win

 

(Guitar 1 builds on E)

(Guitar 2 enters with a pick scrape)

 

B A E

Don't you use the rules

B A E

They're not for you, they're for the fools

B A E

And you're a fool if you don't know that

B A E

So just use the rules you fucking fool

 

SOLO (one guitar continues to play the B A E rhythm)

 

The rhythm for the solo is easy to figure out.

The notes are:

 

FIRST SECTION

 

E (9th fret on the G string) and G (7th fret on the G string)

 

SECOND SECTION

 

Begins on G# (9th fret on B string) then repeats

A (10th fret), B (12th fret), G# (9th fret)- all on B string.

 

The solo fades out during the second section.
