Dire Straits - Walk of Life
transcripted by Stefan Arheilger

Key E (f#,c#,g#,d#)

Chords:
E (022100)
A (x02220)
B (x2444x)
B7(x2424x)* 

*Normally 2nd Guitar plays B instead of B7, but Organ plays B7...
But I prefer B7 also for Guitar. Just try it, if you want ;)

4/4-Time 
 
Intro (arranged for guitar, or play it one or two octavs higher):
G||-1-|-----|---|------|---|-----|-------|---||
D||-2-|---4-|-2-|------|-4-|---1-|-2-4s6-|-4-||
A||-2-|---6-|-4-|--4s6-|-6-|---2-|-4---7-|-6-||
E||---|-----|-5-|------|-7-|---4-|-5-----|-7-||
    1   1 3   1   1  3   1   1 3   1   4   1

Now (2nd) guitar starts to play following CHords (strum only one time and let ring):
    E         A          B         A       B7
G||-1-|-----|---|------|---|-----|-------|---||
D||-2-|---4-|-2-|------|-4-|---1-|-2-4s6-|-4-|| play
A||-2-|---6-|-4-|--4s6-|-6-|---2-|-4---7-|-6-|| twice
E||---|-----|-5-|------|-7-|---4-|-5-----|-7-||
    1   1 3   1   1  3   1   1 3   1   4   1


2nd Guitar plays following riff over and over:
