	This is my first post of chords, so I'm praying
the lines w/ chords and the lines w/ words roughly
match up.

	Someone (sorry didn't catch name, cause I'm new
to this game) posted a request for the chords to
"It's Money That Matters" by Randy Newman, from the
recording "Land of Dreams" (Reprise 25773--a few bad tunes, but a few
really great tunes, so buy it!).  The
poster can e-mail me for clarification.

	I welcome all corrections, suggestions, praise, and flames at my
E-mail address.

	Here is a condensation of the chords for the
tune.  It's pretty much a "cycle" tune, so I didn't include all lyrics
and verses.

	Notes:  The verse merely cycles through D-A-G-D
(with two beats per chord, but note that the D
chord repeats at beginning and end of each cycle).  What Newman
calls the Chorus (where he sings "It's money that
matters") follows the same D-A-G-D pattern.

	What I have called Bridge I is pretty
straightforward, but what I have called Bridge II
is actually a little riff section, so the chords
are deceptive.  I will spell the notes in the "C-no third" riff
(pretty wimpy thing to call a riff) so you can get
it a little better.  For the "C no third" chord,
don't even bother playing a chord, just play the
riff notes, duplicated in all the octaves you can
spare (within reason).

	Bridge I appears only once in the song.  Bridge
II comes twice:  once after Bridge I (and a short turnaround), and once
after the third verse.

	You're on your own to sound like Mark Knopfler
does on the recording.

			It's Money That Matters
				Randy Newman

    D	      A		G		D
Of all of the people

    D  	       A	G		D
that I used to know

    D	     A		G		D
Most never adjusted

    D		   A	G		D
to the great big world



Bmin                         A            G
All of these people are much brighter than I

    Bmin                      A             G
In any fair system they would flourish and thrive

But they barely survive

They eke out a living

           A#dim    Bmin
And they barely survive

Bmin    A     G     D/F#   (<- turnaround into first occurence of Bridge II)

Bridge II

   A (no third)      C no third (riff:  G C C C D)
When I was a young boy

   A (no third)      C no third (riff:  G C C C D)
Maybe thirteen

        A (no third)      C no third (riff:  G C C C D)
I took a hard look around me

         A (no third)      C no third (riff:  G C C C D)
and asked what does it mean?

      D            A       G       D
So I talked to my father

   D            A       G       D
and he didn't know.


(Note: Bridge II repeats after third verse)

[I checked the layout after I pulled this into my news editor,and the
chords and lines seem to match up pretty well. We'll see how well it nets.]
