Could someone tell me what the intro line of "Police on My Back" off of
"Sandanista!" is? As near as I can tell, it's

but that doesn't sound right to me. Not siren-like enough. Am I just using
the wrong kind of distortion, or am I hitting the wrong notes? And, because
I started this mess, I'll finish it by adding the chords...

           D
Well, I'm running
       G
Police on my back
        D
Can you help me?
       G
Police on my back
     D
I am hiding
       G
Police on my back
          D
They were shooting
       G
Police on my back
          A
I've been running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
G
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
A
Running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
G
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
D           G
What have I done?
D           G
What have I done?
(back to verse with other words)

Words are probably wrong, so if someone could post those, that would also be
neat:). And the bassline would be awesome, since Paul Simonon is blasting
away. And what about "White Riot" (which is just A, D, and E, but the bassline
is wicked awesome) ?

Let's also see if someone hasn't figured out Richard Lloyd's brilliant solos
in Matthew Sweet's "Divine Intervention" (I can give someone the rhythm part
if they really want it), "I've Been Waiting" (can someone post the whole
song?), and "Evangeline," which is fairly easy except for that damn brilliant
solo.
