                             What Have I Got To Do - Mark Knopfler

Tuning:Standard

I believe this wonderful song by Mark Knopfler was on the Single to "Cannibals".
In any case it's an amazing song, if you want to listen to it you can find it on Youtube.
The main riff is going through the whole song, with several small changes everytime Knopfler
repeats it. I think
it is mostly correct, though I'm not sure about the beginning.

The Chords are are a bit tricky, if you want to play along to the lyrics the chords 
should do just fine.
But on the record Knopfler integrates small melody changes in every chord. For example he 
plays the F chord
and then plays a D instead of a C the second time.
So you have
     F
e|--------------|
B|---6-6-6-6----|
G|---5-7-5-7----|
D|---7-7-7-7----|
A|--------------|
E|--------------|

Or at least something like that, when he's playing F, but the melody is always F.


Anyway, everything should be rougly correct so enjoy playing the song.
