Mark Knopfler 5.15 A.M.
This song is played on two guitars a lovely mix of a Strat and Les Paul. 
One has a Capo on 1 and the other on 3. I think that to play it on one guitar it sounds better on 3, 
but that’s only my ears!

Capo: 3

[Verse 1]
C 
5.15 a.m.
C
Snow laying all around
F 
A collier cycles home
                          C 
From his night shift underground 
G 
Past the silent pub
G
Primary school, workingmen’s club 
Dm 
On the road from the pithead
               F
The churchyard packed 
            C
With mining dead

C
Then beneath the bridge
C
He comes to a giant car
F
A shroud of snow upon the roof
               C
A Mark Ten Jaguar
G
He thought the man was fast asleep
G
Silent, still and deep
Dm
Both dead and cold
     F
Shot through
            C
With bullet holes

[Chorus]
Fmaj7 
The one armed bandit man
Fmaj7
Came north to fill his boots
C 
Came up from cockney land 
C
E-type Jags and flashy suits
Fmaj7 
Put your money in
Fmaj7
Pull the levers
Fmaj7
Watch them spin 
C 
Cash cows in all the pubs 
C                                                 
But he preferred the new nightclubs

G
Nineteen sixty-seven
G
Bandit men in birdcage heaven 
Am 
La dolce vita, sixty-nine 
F                        C G
All new to people of the Tyne

[Verse 2]
C 
Who knows who did what
C
Somebody made a call 
     F 
They said his hands
 F
Were in the pot 
                        C 
That he'd been skimming hauls 
G 
He picks up the swag
G 
They gaily gave away 
Dm 
Drives his giant Jag 
    F              C
Off to his big pay day

[Chorus]
Fmaj7 
The bandit man
Fmaj7
Came north to fill his boots 
C 
Came up from cockneyland
C
E-type Jags and flashy suits 
Fmaj7 
The bandit man
Fmaj7
Came up the great north road 
C 
Up to geordieland
C 
To mine
        G
The mother lode 

[Verse 3]
C
Seams blew up or cracked
C
Black diamonds came hard won
F
Generations toiled and hacked
                         C
For a pittance and black lung
G
Crushed by tub or stone
G
Together
G
And alone
Dm
How the young and old
         F        C
Paid the price of coal

G
Eighteen sixty-seven
G
My angel's gone to heaven
Am
He'll be happy there
F                         C G
Sunlight and sweet clean air

C
They gather round the glass
C
Tough hewers and crutters
Am 
Child trappers and putters 
                 F        G 
The little foals and half-marrows 
Dm 
Who pushed 
               G 
And pulled the barrows 
Dm 
The hod boys 
        F 
And the rolleywaymen 
C
