Your Latest Trick by Dire Straits from Brothers In Arms album
For any questions mail me to fffoma@gmail.com


This is a chords for album version of the song. Please note that live version contains
exact same verses, but on album part of verses alternates between [B-C#m-B-C#] and
[B-C#m-B/D#-C#/F] all three times. Live version also have [E-F#m] progression after 'All 
I can do' instead of [E/G#-A]. Note suspended chords in the intro, you can simplify it 
to B and
B/A or play it like sus in the song too.

Also I checked tones of tabs and chords and even official books and paid sheet music are
wrong. The most 'jazzy chord' in the song is just D9. And note the incredible G#7#9
just before outro solo, it was played both on album and live. It just breathtaking. Good luck!

         E                                    F#m
All the late night bargains have been struck
             B          C#m        B      C#  F#m
Between the satin beaus and their belles

Prehistoric garbage trucks
          D9                 E
Have the city to themselves
                             F#m
Echoes and roars, dinosaurs
             B         C#m     B/D#  [ch]C#/F[/ch]
They're all doing the monster mash
     F#m
And most of the taxis, most of the whores
    D9
Are only taking calls for cash


A
                     B        B/A
I don't know how it happened
   E/G#               Aadd9  A
It all took place so quick
    E/B           E/G#  A
But all I can do
    B          C#m  B/D#
Is hand it to you
                  G#7
And your latest trick

               E                      F#m
Well, now, my door was standing open
   B          C#m           B   C#
Security was laid back and lax
           F#m
But it was only my heart got a-broken
                     D9
You must have had a pass key made out of wax
            E
You played robbery with insolence
                   F#m            B            C#m          B/D#  [ch]C#/F[/ch]
And I played the blues in twelve bars down on Lover's Lane
         F#m
And you never did have the intelligence to use
            D9
The twelve keys hanging off of my chain


A
                     B        B/A
I don't know how it happened
   E/G#               Aadd9  A
It all took place so quick
    E/B           E/G#  A
But all I can do

                 E                          F#m
Well, now, it's past last call for alcohol
      B               C#m           B  C#
Past recall has been here and gone
     F#m
The landlord he finally paid us all
           D9
The satin jazzmen have put away their horns
            E                                  F#m
And we're standing outside of this wonderland
 B            C#m             B/D#  [ch]D#/F[/ch]
Looking so bereaved and so bereft
        F#m
Like a Bowery bum when he finally understands
             D9
The bottle's empty and there's nothing left


A
                     B        B/A
I don't know how it happened
        E/G#                       Aadd9  A
It was faster than the eye could flick
    E/B           E  A
But all I can do
    B          C#m  B/D#
Is hand it to you
          G#7#9
And your latest trick


| C#m A | B B/A | G#m7 | AMaj7 |
| F# [ch]F#/A#[/ch] | B B/A | G#7 | F#m7 G#7 | Repeat to fade-out or 'On The Night' ending
