[Verse]
Em                    F
London calling to the faraway towns
         Em                  G
Now that war is declared and battle come down
Em                    F
London calling to the underworld
     Em                           G
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
Em                  F
London calling, now don't look to us
Em                    G
Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust
Em                     F
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
Em                          G
Except for the ring of that truncheon thing

[Chorus]
    Em                     G
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Em                    G
Meltdown expected the wheat is growing thin
Em                       G
Engines stop running but I have no fear
    Em                     D~
Cuz London is drowning and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Em                         G
Forget it brother, you can got it alone
Em                    F
London calling to the zombies of death
Em                   G
Quit holding out and draw another breath
Em                   F
London calling and I don't wanna shout
    Em                      G
But while we were talking I saw you noddin' out
Em                     F
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
  Em                         G
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes


[Chorus]
    Em                     G
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Em                       G
Engines stop running the wheat is growing thin
  Em                  G
A nuclear error but I have no fear

Cuz London is drowning and I live by the river
