Verse:

C                     F
Jimmy and Johnny, two friends of mine
A#                   C
Skinheads what they claim                    (D|-5-5-5--3--2--0-|)
C           F            A#                      C
Outside similarities but no, they don't feel the same

    C                       F
See Johnny thinks Jimmy's a mod
    A#                      C
And Jimmy thinks Johnny's a punk
C                F       A#                 C
Jimmy listens to ska and Johnny likes Last Resort

C                       F         A#           C
Jimmy and Johnny in the trenches, going down tonight
C                          F
Drinking Guinness, smoking 555's
A#                             C
Once you're in the middle everything's all right
