[Intro]
Em  Am  Em  Am
F  Am  F  Am
Em  Am  Em  Am
F  Am  F  Am


[Verse]
          Em                Am
When they kick at your front door
Em           Am
How you gonna come?
          F             Am
With your hands on your head
          F               Am
Or on the trigger of your gun


[Verse]
Em                Am
When the law break in
Em           Am
How you gonna go?
F                Am
Shot down on the pavement
   F                Am
Or waiting on death row


[Chorus]
        Em
You can crush us
        Am
You can bruise us
           Em            Am
But you'll have to answer to
F  Am        F       Am
Ooh, guns of Brixton


[Verse]
    Em         Am
The money feels good
         Em              Am
And your life you like it well
    F                     Am
But surely your time will come
      F             Am
As in heaven, as in hell


[Interlude]
Em  Am  Em  Am
F  Am  F  Am
Em  Am  Em  Am
F  Am  F  Am


[Verse]
    Em                Am
You see, he feels like Ivan
     Em               Am
Born under the Brixton sun
    F                 Am
His game is called survival
       F                      Am
At the end of the harder they come


[Verse]
    Em              Am
You know it means no mercy
     Em               Am
They caught him with a gun
   F                    Am
No need for the Black Maria
    F                  Am
Goodbye to the Brixton sun


[Chorus]
        Em
You can crush us
        Am
You can bruise us
           Em            Am
But you'll have to answer to
F  Am        F       Am
Ooh, guns of Brixton


[Interlude]
Em  Am  Em  Am
F  Am  F  Am


[Verse]
          Em                Am
When they kick at your front door
Em           Am
How you gonna come?
          F             Am
With your hands on your head
          F               Am
Or on the trigger of your gun


[Interlude]
Em  Am  Em  Am
F  Am  F  Am


[Chorus]
        Em
You can crush us
        Am        Em
You can bruise us
                  Am
And even shoot us
    F  Am            F      Am
But ooh, the guns of Brixton


[Verse]
Em               Am
Shot down on the pavement
Em               Am
Waiting in death row
    F           Am
His game was survivin'
      F             Am
As in heaven, as in hell


[Chorus]
        Em
You can crush us
        Am
You can bruise us
           Em            Am
But you'll have to answer to
F  Am        F      Am
Ooh, guns of Brixton


[Outro]
F  Am        F      Am
Ooh, guns of Brixton
F  Am        F      Am
Ooh, guns of Brixton
