G / Bm / G / Bm

 

 

Bm       F#m   A        E7      Bm     

Sweet surrender on the quay side

Bm      F#m    A        E7         Bm

You remember we used to run and hide

        Bm                   F#m                         

In the shadows of cargoes, I take you on time,

A                     (D)-E    

Counting all the numbers

                  Bm

Down to the waterline

 

Near misses on the dogleap stairways

French kisses in the darkened doorways

Foghorn blowing out wild and cold

A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder

 

Lead 1  G / Bm / G / A / Bm

 

Up comes a coaster, fast and silent through the night

Over my shoulder, all you can see are pilot lights

No money in our jackets and jeans are torn

Your hands are cold but your lips are warm

 

        G / Bm / G / A –

she can see you in the jetty where you used to go

she can see you in the places where the sailors go

when she’s walking down the river on the railway line

she can still hear you whisper

Lets go down to the water line

 

come on.

Water of Love

Mark Knopfler

-Originally released on Dire Straits-

Intro: 2 x D  C  G  D

 

High and dry in the long hot day

Lost and lonely in every way

        Am7

Got the flats all around me, sky up above,

D

Yes, I need a little water of love

 

D

I’ve been too long lonely and my heart feels pain,

Crying out for some soothing rain

                Am7

I believe I’ve taken enough,

D

I need a little water of love

 

Chorus:

Am7

Water of love deep in the ground,

           G                 D

but there aint no water here to be found

Am7

Some day baby when the river runs free,

            G  (stop)           D

It’s gonna carry that water of love to me

 

Solo like intro: D  C  G  D   1 time

 

          D

There’s a bird up in a tree, sitting up high,

Just a-waitin’ for me to die

Am7

If I don’t get some water soon,

         D

I’ll be dead and gone in the afternoon

 

Chorus + solo like intro: D  C  G  D   1 time

 

D

Once I had a woman I could call my own,

Once I had a woman now my woman is gone

Am7

Once there was a river now there’s a stone

D

You know it’s evil when you’re living alone

 

Chorus + outro: D  C  G  D   1 time

 

 

 

Setting Me Up

Mark Knopfler

-Originally released on Dire Straits-

A

You say I’m the greatest bound for glory

                                  E  D

Well the word is out and I learned

A     

I got the latest side of the story

        G          D              A

You’re pulling out before you get burned

 

 

Well your hands are squeezing me down to the bone

I never saw you breaking no law

Stands to reason I’ve got to leave you alone

What you take me for

 

        A                      D

You’re setting me up to put me down

        E                        A

You’re making me out to be your clown

           A                        D

You’re just setting me up to put me down

            E        

You better give it up

                        A

Quit your messing around

 

 

You think I care about your reaction

You think I don’t understand

All you wanted was a piece of the action

Now you talk about another man

In The Gallery

Mark Knopfler

-Originally released on Dire Straits-

Key: Am  or (A#m on the record)

 

Intro: drums and guitar                                      0.5  0.5 1.0

Am                         D  Am                   D  – Am    Am – C – D

Harry made a bareback rider     proud and free upon a horse 0.5  0.5 0.5

Am                    D                       D  – Am       Am – C – D

  And a fine coalminer      for the NCB that was

 

(repeat chord sequence ahead….)

 

A fallen angel and Jesus on the cross

A skating ballerina you should have seen her do the skater’s waltz

 

Some people have got to paint and draw

Harry had to work iin clay and stone

Like the waves coming to the shore

It was in his blood and in his bones

Ignored by all the trendy boys in London and in Leeds

 

        Am                                 D – G – C                    G    

CHORUS: He might as well have been making toys         or strings of beads

             C       C                 G      C slide D     

        He could’nt be…   He could’nt be…..         in the gallery

 

And then you get an artist says he doesn’t want to paint at all

He takes an empty canvas and sticks it on the wall

The birds of a feather all the phonies and all of the fakes

While the dealers they get together

And they decide who gets the breaks

And who’s going to be in the gallery

 

Solo: Follow 1 verse chord pattern

      and then do the chorus

 

No lies he wouldn’t compromise

No junk no bits of string

And all the lies we subsidise

That just don’t mean a thing

I’ve got to say he passed away in obscurity

And now all the vultures are coming down from the tree

So he’s going to be in the gallery

 

(keep chord sequence going

ie Am – D.C / Am – D.C)

Bm7     D        A         G9

 

Red sun, go down way over dirty town

 

Bm7             D             A       E9

 

Starlings are sweeping around crazy shoals

 

Bm7         D                   A                          G9

 

Yes, and a girl is there, high heeling across the square

 

Bm7                 D                          A              E9

 

The wind it blows around in her hair, and the flags upon the poles

 

Em9

 

Waiting in the crowd to cross at the light

 

                     G     F#m7          Bm7   F#m7   Bm7   F#   C9

 

She looks around to find a face she can like.

 

 

 

Bm7          D           A                        G9

 

Church bell, clinging on, trying to get a crowd, Evensong

 

Bm7                D        A              E9

 

Nobody cares to depend upon, the chime it plays

 

Bm7                        D                   A                   G9

 

They’re all in the station, praying for trains, the congregation’s, late again

 

Bm7                 D             A                E9

 

It’s getting darker, all the time, these flagpole days

 

Em9

 

Drunk old soldier he gives her a fright

 

                 G      F#m7   Bm7   F#m7   Bm7   F#   C9

 

He’s crazy lion howling for a fight.

 

 

 

Bm7           D               A                    G9

 

Strap hanging, gunshot sound, door slamming on the, overground

 

Bm7                D              A                 E9

 

The starlings are tough, but the lions are made of stone

 

Bm7                   D          A                               G9

 

Her evening paper is horror torn, but there’s hope later for, capricorns

 

Bm7                       D           A              E9

 

Her lucky stars give her just enough, … to get her home

 

Em9

 

Then she’s reading about a swing to the right

 

                              G     F#m7   Bm7   F#m7   Bm7   F#   C9

 

But she’s thinking about a stranger in the night

 

 

 

G                       A    G                        A

 

I’m thinking about the lions, I’m thinking about the lions

 

G                     A       Bm7   F#m7    Bm7   F#m7    Bm7   F#m7    Bm7

 

A   fade out

Well now the rumours are flying

Speculation rife

They say that he’s been trying someone else’s wife

Somebody at the airport

Somebody on the phone

Say he’s at the station and he’s coming home alone

 

(This part is only A:)

Then we get the story

The serious piece

And a photography a taken in the hall

And you don’t have to worry with the previous release

Right now he’s saying nothing at all

But in the communique you know he’s gonna come clean

Think what he say

Say what he mean

Maybe on a Monday he’ll have something to say

One World

Mark Knopfler

-Originally released on Brothers in Arms-

Can’t find no sleeves for my records

Can’t get no laces for my shoes

Can’t get no fancy notes

On my blue guitar

Can’t get no antidote for blues

 

Can’t find the reasons for your actions

Or I don’t much like the reasoning you use

Somehow your motives are impure

Or somehow I can’t find the cure

Can’t find no antidote for blues

 

They say it’s mostly vanity

That writes the plays we act

They tell me that’s what everybody knows

There’s no such thing as sanity

And that’s the sanest fact

That’s the way the story goes

 

Can’t get no remedy on my TV

There’s nothing but the same old news

They can’t find a way to be

One world in harmony

Can’t get no antidote for blues
