To play along with the CD Dire Straits version, you will need to tune down one semitone. I have stuck to simple chords that fit well with the original recording. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Brothers in Arms     Dire Straits

Am F Dm F Am F Dm Am

[Verse 1]
Am                  F   G                       C   F C
These mist covered mountains are a home now for me 
       C/B          Am   Em                   F    G
But my home is the low  lands and always will be 
                   Am   Em                        F     G
Some day you'll return  to your valleys and your farms 
                     Am         F           G
And you'll no longer burn to be brothers in arms

Am F Dm F Am F Dm Am 

[Verse 2]
Am                          F   G                  C   F  C
Through these fields of destruction - Baptisms of fire
     C/B             Am   Em                        F       G
I've witnessed your suff’ring as the battles raged higher 
                    Am         Em                    F     G
And though they did hurt me so bad in the fear and alarm
               Am          F          G
You did not desert me my brothers in arms 

Am F Dm F Am F Dm Am 

[Middle Eight]
Am         G              Am     G      C              F   G
There's so many different worlds    So many different suns
                     Am    G         C                 F
And we have just one world   but we live in different ones

Am F Dm F   Am F Dm F   Am F Dm F   Am F Dm   Am

[Verse 3]
Am                     F    G                         C    F    C
Now the sun's gone to hell      and the moon's riding high 
       C/B          Am  Em                       F    G
Let me bid you farewell.       Every man has to die
                         Am   Em                           F     G
But it's written in the star-light and every line in your palm
                    Am         F           G
We're fools to make war on our brothers in arms

Am F Dm F   Am F Dm F   Am F Dm F
