Uke Tab : Guns on the Roof
"Guns on the Roof" - The Clash


E D        A        E
I swear by Almighty God
E  D        A     E 
To tell the whole truth
E D A       E   E  D  A
And nothing but 
E
The truth

E    D               A         E
They torture all the women and children
E         D       A          E 
Then they put the men to the gun
E     D        A      E
Cos across the human frontier
E         D      A      E
Freedom's always on the run

E     D     A          E
Guns, guns, shaking in terror
E     D     A          E
Guns, guns, killing in error
E     D     A      E
Guns, guns, guilty hands
E     D     A           E
Guns, guns, shatter the lands

A system built by the sweat of the many
Creates assassins to kill off the few
Take any place and call it a courthouse
This is a place where no judge can stand

Sue the lawyers and burn all the papers
Unlock the key of the legal papers
A jury of a billion faces
Shouted out, condemned out of hand

Guns, guns, and nobody's kidding
Guns, guns, no fooling around
Guns, guns, the violence is singing
Guns, guns, a silence the sound

E             D     A   E
An' I like to be in Aferika
E         D      A     E
A beating on the final drum
E             D      A     E
An' I like to be in USSR
E      D          A           E
Making sure these things will come
E             D    A  E
An' I like to be in USA
E         D         A        E
Pretending that the wars are done
E             D     A      E
An' I like to be in Europe now
E          D      A    E
Saying goodbye to everyone

E     D             C#          E 
Guns, guns, there's guns on the roof
E     D             C#      E   
Guns, guns, they're made to shoot
E     D             C#          E 
Guns, guns, there's guns on the roof
