Mark Knopfler
Scaffolder’s Wife
Tabbed By Mad Mart

Capo on 1

Intro. Bm E Bm | Bm E Bm X 2

Vers. C D G D | A F# Bm X 2

the scaffolder's wife 
driving out of the yard 
with a face that's as hard 
as a scaffolder's bar - 
when she goes into town 
she might take the top down 
- on the car 

the quick little steps 
in the stiletto boots 
and the hair with the roots 
she comes in as a rule 
to get the nails done 
and the tan for the sun 
when the kids are in school

Chorus. | G A D (A) Bm | G A G | D G D |

don't begrudge her the MERC 
it's been nothing but work 
in/and a hard life 
losing her looks 
over company books 
- the scaffolder's wife

Intermezzo. | C D G D | A F# Bm

Vers. C D G D | A F# Bm

in the wicked old days 
when they went it alone 
kept the company going 
on a wing and a prayer 
they don't pay what they owe 
when they have the cash flow 
- they don't care

Chorus. | G A D (A) Bm | G A G | D G D |

don't begrudge her the MERC 
it's been nothing but work 
in/and a hard life 
losing her looks 
over company books 
- the scaffolder's wife
