Subject: CRD: Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straights

        Here are the chords for Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straights.
        all of the usual diclaimers/excuses apply.

        I took it from "Money for Nothing", the greatest hits CD.
        To hear some great solo work, see the live versions on Alchemy(?)

        First of all, you capo on the fith fret and then play the intro chords
        as you would in first position (i.e. play the F as a first position C,
        the Dm as a first position Am, etc)  then you will find that the intro
        is a simple fingerpicking of the chords, don't have to hardly move
        the hands!

        *NOTE* I wrote the actual chords out, not the normal thing of writing
        out the chords as if in first position referenced to the capo.  Sorry
        about this, but I play it in first position while by friend plays
        the capo'd part, so it was easier for me to write it this way.  here is         the conversion:

        Actual chord     Play Capo'd as first position
        F  (x87565)      C
        Dm (x57765)      Am
        C  (875558)      G
        Bb (688766)      F
        Gm (xx5786)      Dm

[Intro]

        F   Dm   x4

[Verse]

        F                C Dm                         C F
        A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
        F                C Dm             C           Bb
        Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
        C                         Bb C            F
        Finds a street light steps out into the shade
                Bb                           C
        Says something like you and me babe, how about it?
        F                          C Dm                        
C F
        Juliet says hey it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack
        F                         C Dm                          
C Bb
        He's underneath the window, she's singing hey la my boyfriends back
        C                           Bb  C                        F
        you shouldn't come around here singing up to people like that
         Bb                        C
        Anyway, what you gonna do about it?

[Chorus 1]

        F      C             Dm C             Bb
        Juliet the dice was loaded from the start
        F      C             Dm C             Bb
        And I bet, and you exploded in my heart.
        F      C             Dm              Bb
        And I forget, I forget, the movie song
        Gm                                  F        Bb    
C     Dm  C  F
        When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong  Juliet?

[Verse 2]

        F                C Dm                         
C F
        Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame
        F                C Dm             C           Bb
        Both dirty both mean, yes and even and dream was just the same
        C                         Bb C            F
        And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real.
                Bb                           C
        How can you look at me as if I was just another part of your deal
        F                C Dm                         
C F
        Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold.
        F                C Dm             C           Bb
        you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
        C                         Bb C            F
        You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin yeah
                Bb                           C
        Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him.

        Juliet when we made love you used to cry
        F      C             Dm C             Bb
        you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
        F      C             Dm              Bb
        There's a place for us, you know the movie song
        Gm                                  F        Bb    
C     Dm  C  F
        When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

        F                C Dm             C           Bb
        I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be.
        C                         Bb C            F

                Bb                           C
        I cant't do anything but be in love with you.
        F                C Dm                         
C F
        And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
        F                C Dm             C           Bb
        All I do is keep the beat and bad company.
        C                         Bb C            F
        All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme

        Juliet when we made love you used to cry
        F      C             Dm C             Bb
        you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
        F      C             Dm              Bb
        There's a place for us, you know the movie song
        Gm                                  F        Bb    
C     Dm  C  F
        When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?


[Verse 4]


        F                C Dm

        A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade.
        F                C Dm             C           Bb
        Now he's laying everymody low, with a love song that he made.
        C                         Bb C            F
        Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade
                Bb                           C
        Says something like you and me babe how about it

[Outro]

        Bb C  (as long as the lead player can do those tasty fills)

        p.s. A second guitarist playing in first position really fills this song
        out if you are not doing it with a full band.
