    Dire Straits – Sultans Of Swing [1978]

    Dire Straits

    [Verse 1]
    You get a shiver in the dark
    It’s raining in the park, but meantime
    South of the river
    You stop and you hold everything
    A band is blowing Dixie
    Double four time
    You feel alright
    When you hear the music ring

    [Verse 2]
    Well, now you step inside
    But you don’t see too many faces
    Coming in out of the rain to hear the Jazz go down
    Competition in other places
    Ah, but the horns, they blowin’ that sound
    Way on down south
    Way on down south, London town

    [Verse 3]
    Check out guitar George
    He knows all the chords
    Mind, it’s strictly rhythm
    He doesn’t want to make it cry or sing
    Yes and an old guitar is all he can afford
    When he gets up under the lights to play his thing

    [Verse 4]
    And Harry doesn’t mind if he doesn’t make the scene
    He’s got a daytime job – he’s doing alright
    He can play the Honky Tonk like anything
    Saving it up for Friday night
    With the Sultans
    With the Sultans of Swing

    [Verse 5]
    And a crowd of young boys
    They’re fooling around in the corner
    Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies
    And their platform soles
    They don’t give a damn
    About any trumpet playing band
    It ain’t what they call Rock and Roll
    And the Sultans
    Yeah, the Sultans, they play Creole

    [Guitar Solo]

    [Verse 6]
    And then the man
    He steps right up to the microphone
    And says at last
    Just as the time bell rings
    “Goodnight, now it’s time to go home”
    Then he makes it fast
    With one more thing
    “We are the Sultans –
    We are the Sultans of Swing”

    [Guitar Solo]
