Mark Knopfler – 5 15 Am tab
Mark Knopfler 5.15 A.M. (Album: Shangri-La) capo: 1 D 5.15 a.m. Snow laying all around G A collier cycles home D From his night shift underground A Past the silent pub Primary school, workingmens club Em On the road from the pithead G The churchyard packed D With mining dead D Then beneath the bridge He comes to a giant car G A shroud of snow upon the roof D A Mark Ten Jaguar A He thought the man was fast asleep Silent, still and deep Em Both dead and cold G Shot through D With bullet holes Gmaj7 The one armed bandit man Came north to fill his boots D Came up from cockneyland E-type Jags and flashy suits Gmaj7 Put your money in Pull the levers Watch them spin D Cash cows in all the pubs But he preferred the new nightclubs A Nineteen sixty-seven Bandit men in birdcage heaven Bm La dolce vita, sixty-nine G D A All new to people of the Tyne D Who knows who did what Somebody made a call G They said his hands Were in the pot D That he'd been skimming hauls A He picks up the swag They gaily gave away Em Drives his giant Jag G D Off to his big pay day Gmaj7 The bandit man Came north to fill his boots D Came up from cockneyland E-type Jags and flashy suits Gmaj7 The bandit man Came up the great north road D Up to geordieland To mine A The mother lode D Seams blew up or cracked Black diamonds came hard won G Generations toiled and hacked D For a pittance and black lung A Crushed by tub or stone Together And alone Em How the young and old G D Paid the price of coal A Eighteen sixty-seven My angel's gone to heaven Bm He'll be happy there G D A Sunlight and sweet clean air D They gather round the glass Tough hewers and crutters Bm Child trappers and putters G A The little foals and half-marrows Em Who pushed A And pulled the barrows Em The hod boys G And the rolleywaymen D 5.15 a.m. Gmaj7=320002 +++ M.ark A.dded A.gain S.upersongs J.M.
