Here is my last version of this song, much more complete and with some
minor corrections :


TUNNEL OF LOVE (Dire Straits)

                     Dm        F                        C
Getting crazy on the waltzers, but it's the life that I choose

G                                                       Dm
Sing about the sixblade sing about the switchback and a torture tatoo

              Dm                             F
And I've been riding on a ghost train

---------------------------------------2/5-5^6--------------
------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------

G                                              Dm
And I don't know where I'll be tonight but I'd always tell you where I am

     Dm                             F
In a screaming ring of faces 
------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------3/5-5-------------------------
------------------------------2/5-5^6-----------------------
------------------------------------------------------------

G                                                     Dm
She had a ticket for the races just like me she was a victim of the night

         Dm                             F
I put my hand upon the lever

G                                                      Dm
I had the one arm bandit fever was an arrow through my heart and my soul


                           Bb                      C

On the tunnel of love.


              Dm     F                              C
It's just the danger when you're riding at your own risk

G                                                   Dm
She said you are the perfect stranger she said baby let's keep it like this

            Dm              F
It's just a cakewalk

            Gm                                        Bb
And now I'm searching through these carousels and the carnival arcades

Gm                        Bb
Searching everywhere from steeplechase and palisades

       Gm                     Bb
In any shooting gallery where promises are made

   C                                                           C
