"WHY AYE MAN"
Mark Knopfler

Dm  Dm  F  Dm  Dm
|----------------------Verse 1----------------------------|
Dm 
We had no way of staying a float
Dm
We had to leave on the ferry-boat
Dm
Economic  refugees 
Dm
On the run to Germany
G
We had the back of Maggie’s hand
Dm
Times were tough in Geordieland
Dm
We got wor tools and working gear
Dm
And humped it all from Newcastle to here
Dm
Dm  (x4)
|----------------------Chorus 1-----------------------------|
Dm                 Fm               Gm     
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Gm               A#               C                           
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man 
Dm                 Fm               Gm     
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Gm               A#               
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man       
|--------------------------Solo 1----------------------------|
Dm (x8 bars)
|-------------------------Verse 2----------------------------|
Dm
We’re nomad tribes, travelling boys
Dm
In the dust and the dirt and the wrecking noise
Dm
Drills and hammers, diggers and picks
Dm
Mixing concrete, laying bricks
G
There’s English, Irish, Scots, the lot 
Dm
United Nation’s what we’ve got
Dm
Brickies, Chippies, every trade
Dm
German building, British-made
Dm
Dm  (x4)
|----------------------Chorus 2-----------------------------|
Dm                 Fm               Gm     
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Gm               A#               C                           
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man 
Dm                 Fm               Gm     
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Gm               A#               
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man      
|--------------------------Solo 2----------------------------|

|-------------------------Bridge 1--------------------------|
G                                        C          Fm
Nae more work on Maggie’s farm
Dm                                               C
Hidaway down the auto-bahn
G                                        C          Fm
Mine’s a porta cabin bed
Dm                                               C
Or a bunk in a Nissan hut instead
|--------------------------Solo 3----------------------------|
G         C         Fm
Dm                   C                   (x2)
|-------------------------Verse 3----------------------------|
Dm     (x4)
Dm
There’s plenty Deutschmarks here to earn
Dm
And German tarts are wunderschön
Dm
German beer is chemical- free
Dm
Germany’s  alright with me
G
Some times I miss my river Tyne 
Dm
But you’re my pretty Fräulein
Dm
Tonight we’ll drink the old town dry
Dm
Keep wor spirit levels high
Dm
Dm  (x4)

Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Gm               A#               C                           
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man 
Dm                 Fm               Gm     
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man

Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
