    Don't know whether you've ever heard the original by Junior Murvin. The song was written and performed by him in 1976. Word is that he wasn't particularly impressed with the version done by The Clash.
    I prefer Junior's version, btw.

      I was thinking they dragged it there from heaven.

      Junior's version is more perfect, and I mostly prefer it. But the Clash massacred it with love in their hearts.
