                Long Shadow Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros
Intro: Am
      C		    F	     C	      G
Well I’ll tell you one thing that I know 
	   C	           Am
You don’t face your demons down 
	   C
You got to grab em jack 
    F		   G
And pin em to the ground 

     Am  		      C
The Devil may care, and maybe God he won’t 
      Am	          C			   G
You better make sure you check on the Do’s and the Don’ts 

C		Am
Crawl up the Mountain 

To reach where the Eagles fly 
  C				Am
Sure you can glimpse from the mountaintop 
	   F	      C		  Dm
Where the soul of the muse might rise. 

	   C	       Am
And if you put it all together 
     C			Am
You won’t have to look around 
F    C	     Dm
You know you cast 
	F	     Am
A Long Shadow On the Ground 

 C	     F        C      G
Then one day I could tell my tracks 
	C		        Am
By the holes in the soles of my shoes 
    C                F
And that the day I said 
		    G
I’m gonna make the news 

     C	             Am
And falling in the garden 
    C		Am
Of days so long ago 
  C		  Am
Somewhere in the memory 
    F    C           Dm
The sun shines on you boy 

  C		Am
Playing in the Arroyos 

Where the American rivers flow 
  C		Am
  F          C     Dm
Down to the Delta Roads 

   C		      Am
A man can’t think so long 

His brain could well explode 
	 C			Am
There’s trains running thru the junctions 
  F           C        Dm
A King comes down the road 

	    C	       Am
And if you put it all together 
    C                   Am
You won’t have to look around 
F   C        Dm
You know you cast 
        F             Am
A Long Shadow On the Ground 

   G
Listen to the Country- The Night Jar and the Bell 
  G
Listen to the Night Streamliner 
    G
Sounding like the wolves of Hell 
  C           Am
Head for the water- the water of the cleansing spell 
       C            Am
It was always are destination 
       F              C        Dm
On the express of the Ne’er Do Wells 
       C                 Am
And we rock thru Madison City 
       C                         Am
And we didn’t even know she was there 
            C                   Am
And when we hit the Buffers in Memphis 
    F                   C        Dm
And Beale street didn’t have no prayer 
    C                 Am              C            Am
I hear punks talk of anarchy- I hear hobos on the railroad 
       C                 Am
I hear mutterings on the chain-gangs 
        F             C        Dm
It was those men who built the roads 

           C            Am
And if you put it all together 
    C                 Am
You didn’t even once relent 
F   C           Dm
You cast a Long Shadow 
F        G         Am
And that is your testament 
F     C          Dm                           C
Somewhere in my soul, there’s always Rock and Roll
