Mark Knopfler – Sands Of Nevada tab

Put a capo on the 3rd fret. Mark sings this song very deep, so if you want to sing it on 
own I suggest taking off the capo and sing one octave higher.
The chords are given relevant to the capo:

      Am                        G
These tables are haunted by the ghost of Las Vegas

      Am                                 G            Am
Their chips were once mountains but they came here to play

           Am                                G
They could take me if they wanted but I have nothing worth counting

             Am                      G        Am
And like the sands of Nevada they go drifting away

Lady luck's still a mystery
With her head on my shoulders
And I don't know why
I still want her to dance
I guess that's all history
What it is is I'm older
And I'm still a fool
For a one-way romance

    Am                        F               G
Her dice were red rubies they rolled and they tumbled

      Am                     F           G
And I never saw time running out with my roll

         Am                        G
And in a wasteland of cut glass my dreams have all crumbled

         Am                       G          Am
And I've paid with whatever I had left for a soul

Now the dawn's broken even
On an empty horizon
No reason for folding
No reason to stay
It's too soon to be leaving
Too late for criticizing
And the sands of Nevada
They go drifting away


That's all folks!
