                             One World - Dire Straits
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Zach Jensen
E-mail: utahblazeman82@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Great song by Dire Straits, with a lot of guitar riffs on a metal kind of sound. 
The riffs after each line are played after he sings each line. You can play the
riffs or the chords.
I credit the chords to the user lakesound.

It will take some listening to the song to get the right timing and so forth.

Bridge

They say it's mostly vanity
     A                   Em
That writes the plays we act
     C                   D       | Em     Am  Baug  B |
They tell me that's what everybody knows
        Em               Bm
There's no such thing as sanity
    A                 Em
And that's the sanest fact
C           Bm                       C   D
