Dire Straits

Tom: F
Intro:  Dm  C : G 
Dm           C       Bb        F 
 Two in the morning bright uptown 
Dm              C                 Bb  F 
 The river run away in the night 
Dm           C             Bb        F 
 Little Gypsy mare she's all tied down 
Dm               C                      Bb  F 
 She put her in the wind and the light 
(Os mesmos acordes de cima) 
 Yeah, the sailing ship is just held down in chains 
 From the lazy days of sailing 
 She's just lying there silent in pain 
 You lean on the tourist rail 
Am                              Dm              Dm-C-Bb 
 A mother and her baby in the college of war 
 In the concrete grave 
Dm                  C                 Bb         F 
 You never want to fight against the river law 
Gm                  Bb 
 Nobody rules the waves 
              C             A7           Dm 
 Yeah, on a night when the lazy wind is wailing 
Bb                   C 
 Around the cutting saw 
   Dm            C     Bb      F 
 Single-handed sailor go sailing 
Gm                          Bb 
 Singing away in the dark 
 He's up on the bridge on the self-say night 
 A mariner of dried-up land 
 Two in the morning, well there's one green light 
 And the man on the barge is sad 
 She's gonna step away below him 
 Away from things he's done 
 But he just shouts, "Hey man whatcha call this thing?" 
 She could say, "Pride of London" 
 On a night when the lazy wind is wailing 
 Around the cutting saw 
 Yeah, single-handed sailor go sailing 
 Singing away in the dark
