We had no way of staying afloat

We had to leave on the ferry boat

Economic refugees

On the run to germany

    G5                            Gadd9
We had the back of maggie's hand
 D5
Times were tough in geordieland
   (D5)
We got wor tools and working gear

And humped it all from newcastle to here


  Dsus2        Fsus2    G5       
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
  G5           Bbsus2     C
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
  Dsus2        Fsus2    G5       
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
  G5           C      D5
Why aye man, why aye man


| D5 |


We're the nomad tribes, travelling boys

In the dust and dirt and the racket and the noise

Drills and hammers, diggers and picks

Mixing concrete, laying bricks

        G5                              G5add9
There's english, irish, scots, the lot
  D5
United nation's what we've got
 (D5)
Brickies, chippies, every trade

German building, british-made


  Dsus2        Fsus2    G5       
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
  G5           Bbsus2     C
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
  Dsus2        Fsus2    G5       
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
  G5           C      D5
Why aye man, why aye man


| D5 |


 Gm                             C
Nae more work on maggie's farm
 F               Dm        Dsus4/C
Hadaway down the autobahn
 Gm                     C
Mine's a portacabin bed
      F                Dm         Dsus4/C
Or a bunk in a nissen hut instead


| Gm | C | F Dm | Dsus4/C |
| Gm | C | F Dm | D5 |


There's plenty deutschmarks here to earn

And german tarts are wunderschoen

German beer is chemical-free

Germany's alreet with me

 G5                             G5add9
Sometimes I miss my river tyne
     D5
But you're my pretty fraulein
  (D5)
Tonight we'll drink the old town dry

Keep wor spirit levels high


  Dsus2        Fsus2    G5       
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
  G5           Bbsus2     C

  Dsus2        Fsus2    G5

| Am | E7 E | x2


Am            
          E7           E
This empty kitchen's where
      Am            E7   E  Am
I'd while away the hours
              E7      E   C
Just next to my old chair
               E          E7     Dm7
You'd usually have some flowers
                E    E7   Am  Am/G
The shelves of books
          Am/F#
Even the picture hooks
               Dm7  E7
Everything is gone
        E        Am
But my heart is hanging on

           E7         E
If this old neighbourhood
    Am              E7   E  Am
Survived us both alright
                    E7   E    C
Don't know that it withstood
                     E7       E    Dm7
All the things that took our light
             E    E7   Am  Am/G
You on the stair
       Am/F# 
I can see you there
               Dm7  E7
Everything is gone
        E        Am
But my heart is hanging on


FMaj7
                  CMaj7       FMaj7
Once there was a little girl
                      CMaj7       FMaj7
Used to wonder what she would be
                   CMaj7
Went out into the big wide world
                  FMaj7
Now she's just a memory
                    CMaj7              FMaj7
There used to be a little school here
                  CMaj7           FMaj7
Where I learned to write my name
                     CMaj7
But time has been a little cruel here
      FMaj7
Time has no shame


Dm7
              G  CMaj7
It's just a place where
                 FMaj7  Dm7
We used to live
              G  CMaj7
It's just a place where
                 FMaj7
We used to live


Am
         E7     E    
Now in another town
     Am           E7   E  Am
You lead another life
            E7        E    C
And now upstairs and down
              E7       E    Dm7
You're someone else's wife
             E7   E  Am
Here in the dust
         Am/G   Am/F#
There's not a trace of us
          Dm7       E7
Everything is gone
        E      Am
But my heart is hanging on


Dm7
              G  CMaj7
It's just a place where

Time: 4/4
Key: C Modal
Capo: 5


G5...................[3x003x]
D5...................[xx023x]
C9sus2...............[x3003x]


| G5 |

Come drive me down to the central station

I hate to leave my river tyne

For some damn town that's god-forsaken

Fare thee well, Northumberland

Although I'll go where the lady takes me

She'll never tell what's in her hand

I do not know what fate awaits me

Fare thee well, northumberland

                G5
My heart beats for my streets and alleys
           C9sus2  D5             G5
Longs to dwell      in the borderlands
                 G5
The north-east shore and the river valleys
           C9sus2  D5          G5
Fare thee well,     northumberland

            C9sus2             G5
I may not stay, i'm bound for leaving
                            D5   D5/F#
I'm bound to ramble and to roam
        G5
I only say my heart is grieving
             C9sus2  D5             G5
I would not gamble    on my coming home

 G5
Roll on, geordie boy, roll

Roll on, geordie boy, roll

What do you know about the hammer and the spike

What do you know about the farm

You don't know

You don't know what it's like

Because you don't know

You don't know you're born


What do you know about the hammer and the chisel

You only know the kitchen and the warm

You don't know about the night shift whistle

Punching the clock to the horn

Because you don't know

You don't know you're born

Look at me coyote

Don't let a little road dust put you off

You can't judge a book

Well you know that stuff

There's a tear in my upholstery

And a hole in my shoe

But don't you just wish that you could

Make half of the speed I do 
         F           G           D5
Speed I do, speed I do, speed I do


D5

You can't catch me coyote

Though there may be blood on the tracks

There may be some bridges burning

Behind our backs

But I got my laundry on the backseat

And an itinerary too

And don't you just wish that you could

Make half of the speed I do
         F           G           D5
Speed I do, speed I do, speed I do
         F           G           D5
Speed I do, speed I do, speed I do


D5

Now I'm a speck on your horizon

Getting smaller fast

An ambush wouldn't be surprising

I hope it's better than your last


D5

Once again the roadrunner

Leaves the coyote in the dirt

You've got another plan of action

But we all know it ain't never gonna work

It must be hard having dog dreams

That never come true

And don't you just wish that you could

Make half of the speed I do
         F           G           D5
Speed I do, speed I do, speed I do
         F           G           D5
Speed I do, speed I do, speed I do

There's a chord in "The Ragpicker's Dream" that should be F#m instead of Fm; it's in the part where the lyric is "cold pitchers of beer." It's a typo because I noticed you have it right on the seperate tab for the song. Anyway, thanks for posting all the Knopfler chords. Dude is a genius songwriter.
