Mark Knopfler – Madame Geneva’s

Intro: Bm   G   Em   A (2x)

       Bm       A              Bm
I’m a maker of ballads right pretty 
   Bm              A              Bm
I write them right here in the street 
        Bm            A        G
You can buy them all over the city 
 Bm          A        Bm
yours for a penny a sheet 
       Bm         A            Bm
I’m a word pecker out of the printers 
Bm          A           Bm
out of the dens of Gin Lane 
       Bm         A          G
I’ll write up a scene on a counter 
      Bm           A           Bm    A   
- confessions and sins in the main, boys 
    Bm           A           Bm
confessions and sins in the main 

             Bm         G        A D
Then you’ll find me in Madame Geneva’s 
 G           D         A
keeping the demons at bay 
         A            F#m     Bm           G
There’s nothing like gin for drowning them in 
            Em        F#m
but they’ll always be back 
              Bm  G  Em  A
on a hanging day 
              Bm  G  Em  A   Bm  G   Em   A
on a hanging day 

           Bm      A         Bm
They come rattling over the cobbles 
     Bm            A           Bm
they sit on their coffins of black 
 Bm              A          G
Some are struck dumb, some gabble 
     Bm        A        Bm
top-heavy on brandy or sack 
     Bm           A            Bm
The pews are all full of fine fellows 
         Bm        A          Bm
and the hawker has set up her shop 
            Bm          A           G
As they’re turning them off at the gallows 
           Bm            A         Bm    A
She’ll be selling right under the drop, boys 
Bm             A         Bm
selling right under the drop 

             Bm         G        A D
Then you’ll find me in Madame Geneva’s 
 G           D         A
keeping the demons at bay 
         A            F#m     Bm           G
There’s nothing like gin for drowning them in 
            Em        F#m
but they’ll always be back 
              Bm  G  Em  A
on a hanging day 
              Bm  G  Em  A   Bm  G   Em   A
on a hanging day

Chords are mostly correct but the sequence needs improvement. Some of the Bm are D and some of the A are F#m
