Dire Straits – Sultans of Swing | NOT LIVE !!! | CD version !!! | Original w/ lyrics in description

I like this song! Especially when i’m drunk on beer! LYRICS: You get a shiver in the dark It’s raining in the park but meantime South of the river you stop and you hold everything A band is blowing Dixie double four time You feel alright when you hear that music ring You step surrounded by but you don’t see too many faces Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down Too much competition too many other places But not too many horns can make that sound Way on downsouth way on downsouth London town You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords Mind he’s strictly rhythm he doesn’t want to make it weep or sing And an ancient guitar is all he can afford When he gets up below the lights to play his thing And Harry doesn’t mind if he doesn’t make the scene He’s got a daytime job he’s doing alright He can play honky tonk just like anything Saving it up for Friday night With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing And a crowd of childish boys they’re fooling around in the confront Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles The don’t give a damn about any trumpet playing band It ain’t what they call rock and roll And the Sultans played Creole And then the man he steps right up to the microphone And says at last just as the time bell rings ‘Thank you goodnight now it’s time to go home’ and he makes it quick whith one more thing ‘We are the Sultans of Swing’

    Yeah I’d be pissed about no Sultans….. Bro’s in Arms was doubtless awesome though, and So Far Away is a classic too.

  3. DainiuZMania says:

    I´m not saying this could be one the best rock and roll songs ever made. I simply say this piece is unique. No one has made anything similar.

    I like this song! Mark Knopfler is one of the greatest guitar players of all time, he can make his guitar sing sweet music.

  20. roquefortfiles says:

    Mark Knoffler hit it out of the park on this one. Not only out of the park but out of the atmosphere. Some songs transcend time and place. This will be just as cool a song in 50 years. The definition of a classic.
