"Romeo & Juliet" by Dire Straits

1st Verse:
C                   G Am                            G C
  A lovestruck Romeo    sings the streets a serenade
                    G Am                 F 
Laying everybody low    with a love song that he made
G                                F G                C 
  Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade
                   F                       G  
Says something like  you and me babe, how about it? 
C                           G Am                                 G C
  Juliet says hey it's Romeo,   you nearly gave me a heart attack
                          G Am               F
He's underneath the window,   singing hey my boyfriend's back
G                                F                         C 
  you shouldn't come around here singing up to people like that
F                           G
  Anyway, what you gonna do about it?

1st Chorus:
C      G             Am              F
Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start
      C  G          Am            F
And I bet, and you exploded in my heart.
         C         Am  F 
And I forget, I forget,  the movie song
Am               C              F             Am       G        C
  When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

2nd Verse:
C                             G Am                           G C
  Come up on different streets,    both the streets of shame
                    G Am                   F 
Both dirty both mean,   yes and even the dream the same
G                                   F                C  
  I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real.
F                                    G  
  How can you look at me as if I was just another part of your deals
             C                        G Am                                 G C
Well you can fall for chains of silver,    you can fall for chains of gold.
                              G  Am               F
You can fall for pretty strangers   and the promises they hold
G                           F G                C 
  You promised me everything,  you promised me thick and thin yeah
F                                   G             
  Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him.

2nd Chorus:
    C G             Am               F
Juliet when we made love you used to cry
           C                 G                Am              F
You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
          C         Am  F 
There's a place for us,  you know the movie song
Am               C              F             Am       G        C
  When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

3rd Verse:
C                    G Am                         G C
  I can't do the talk,   like they talk on the tv
                          G Am                  F 
And I can't do a love song,   like the way it's meant to be.
G                    F         G               C
  I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you.
F                          G  
  I cant't do anything but be in love with you.

C                         G Am                         G C
  And all I do is miss you    and the way we used to be
                         G Am        F
All I do is keep the beat    and bad company.
G                     F                      C 
  All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
F                                 G 
  Juliet I'd do the stars with you  anytime.

3rd Chorus:
    C G             Am               F
Juliet when we made love you used to cry
           C                 G                Am              F
you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
          C         Am F 
There's a place for us,  you know the movie song
Am               C              F             Am       G        C
  When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

4th Verse:
C                   G Am                            G C
  A lovestruck Romeo    sings the streets a serenade
                    G Am                 F 
Laying everybody low    with a love song that he made
G                                F G                C 
  Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade
                   F                       G  
Says something like  you and me babe, how about it?
