Sultans of Swing

Dire Straits

intro lead: Dm C C Dm C C
Dm C Bb A
You get a shiver in the dark, it's raining in the park, but meantime:
Dm C Bb A
South of the river you stop and you hold everything.
F C Bb Dm Bb C
A band is blowing Dixie double four time - you feel alright when you hear that music ring.
Dm C Bb A
You step inside but you don't see too many faces;
Dm C Bb A
Coming in out of the rain and hear the jazz go down,
F C Bb Dm Bb C
Competition in other places - but the horns keep blowing that sound.
Bb C Dm |: Dm C Bb C :|
Way on downsouth - way on downsouth - London town.
 
Dm C Bb A
You check out guitar george he knows all the chords.
Dm C Bb A
Mind his strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing.
F C Bb Dm Bb C
And an old guitar is all he can afford - when he gets up under the lights to play his thing.
Dm C Bb A Dm C Bb A
And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene; he's got a daytime job he's doing alright.
F C Bb Dm Bb C
He can play the honky tonk like anything - saving it up for friday night.
Bb C Dm |: Dm C Bb C :|
With the sultans - with the sultans of swing.
 
Dm C Bb A
And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner
Dm C Bb A
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles.
F C Bb Dm Bb C
They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band - It ain't what they call rock and roll.
Bb C Dm |: Dm C Bb C :|
And the sultans - yeah the sultans played creole.
solo one full verse
Dm C Bb A Dm C Bb A A7
And then the man he steps right up to the microphone; and says at last just as the time bell rings:
F C Bb Dm Bb C
"Goodnight now it's time to go home." - And he makes it fast with one more thing:
Bb C Dm |: Dm C Bb C :|
"We are the sultans - We are the sultans of swing."
