 Artist: Dire Straits
 Composer \ Writer: Mark Knopfler
 Album: Making Movies

 Capo on Third.

 I play this on my acoustic and i think it sounds really
 close to the Dire Straits version, which i'm quite proud
 of since it's one of my favourite songs.  It's not 
 perfect in places but hey, it's only my second attempt 
 at writing a tab!
