I tried to work on this song. Here is the result for those who might
be interested...

NEWS (dire Straits)
-------------------
                           
Opening lick (+verses) : play the following chords
----------------------    

 Em  D   C   D C
 -------------------
-8---7---5---7-5---
-9---7---5---7-5---
-9---7---5---7-5---
-------------------
-------------------


Lead guitar:
-----------

|---|---------------------------------------|
|---|-8---10-8-7-7(8)-7-------7~~~7(9)------|
|---|---------------------9--------------10-|
|---|---------------------------------------|
|---|---------------------------------------|
|---|---------------------------------------|

Em               D                  C          D
He sticks to his guns, he takes the road as it comes
             C
He takes the shine off his shoes
Em             D                  C        D
He says it's a shame, you know it may be a game
         C
Ah but I won't play to lose     -----------8-7-------------------
                                ---------------10-8--------------
                                -9---7/9-------------------7-9-7-
                                ------------------------10-------
                                ---------------------------------
                                ---------------------------------

He's burning the grass, he takes up a glass

He swallows it neat     ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------
                        -9(10)~~~9---7(9)7-7(9)7-7(9)~~~-
                        ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------
                        ---------------------------------

He crosses the floor, he opens the door

He takes a sniff at the street


CHORUS
------
 C D   C D                 C D   C D   D G   D

-5-7---5-7-----------------5-7---5-7---7-9---12---
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------

But he climbs on his horse, you know he feels no remorse

He just kicks it alive  ------------------------------------------
                        ------------------------------------------
                        --------------------7(9)------7------7(9)-

                        -7/10-------------------------------------
                        ------------------------------------------

His motor is fine, He takes it over the line

Until he's ready to dive        ----------------------
                                ----------------6-5---

Vincent,

Nice song...News.  I mite suggest using these chords instead to the 
song..

G / Bm / C / Bm / Am / C  for the verse

and C- D / C- D / Em9  (x2) for the chorus...

What do ya think?

Urban
