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    
        Romeo and Juliet:
        C   Am   x4

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

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

Verse II:
        Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame
        Both dirty both mean, yes and even and dream was just the same
        And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real.
        How can you look at me as if I was just another part of your deal

        Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold.
        you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
        You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin yeah
        Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him.

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

Verse III:
        I can't do the talk, like they talk on the tv
        I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be.
        I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you.
        I cant't do anything but be in love with you.

        And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
        All I do is keep the beat and bad company.
        All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
        Juliet I'd do the stars with you anytime.

Repeat Chorus II:

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

        F G  (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.
