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

I love this song! 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 inside 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 cry or sing And an old guitar is all he can afford When he gets up under 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 young boys they’re fooling around in the corner 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 fast whith one more thing ‘We are the Sultans of Swing’

  1. @DukeSecom Oh trust me, I totally and successfully resist the urge to listen to the songs radio stations try to push into my ears. Sorry to hear about you and your generation, but if you noticed my comments while intentionally listening to Dire Straits, then bravo to you and there is hope….And yes I do have a life.

  2. @barfyspitz and by the way, please dont put such a prejudice generalisation out there next time, i maybe part of the D-U-M-B generation but atleast i still have a life, rather than just a existence behind a PC screen

  3. @barfyspitz saying thats a bit ignorant, theres ALOT of really bloody awesome bands in the underground scene. you just have to resist the urge of letting radio stations provide what you listen to.

  6. @propella756 i miss marks extra little add ons and improvs in his solos yeah but the sound of all the chords is great, like the “main riff” and all, but is missing that fucking awesome ring from the original 78 versions i agree, but its sultans of swing, and therefore will NEVER sound like shit 😉

  7. @Marius11a if Knopfler sent Bieber to make music, it was just to seperate those who don’t have a clue from those who know good music 😉

  8. je suis le seul french boy ici??? pas grave…superbe chanson de mon groupe préféré….chanson narrant les aventures d’un petit groupe jouant dans les petites salles….

  9. Im learning this song to play with my band, im up to the bit with guitar george, and yes i do know all the chords and no i dont wanna make it cry or sing.
