Iron Hand  Dire Straits

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------





[Bm]With all the clari[A]ty of dr[Bm]eam
The sky so blue, the gra[A]ss so gr[Bm]een
[Bm]The rank and file and the n[A]avy bl[Bm]ue
[Em]The deep and strong, the[A] straight and tr[F#m]ue       [Bm]

[Bm]The blue line they g[A]ot the given si[Bm]gn
The belts and boots march fo[A]rward in t[Bm]ime
[Bm]The wood and leather the c[A]lub and shield[bm]
[Em]Swept like a wave across[A] the battlefield[F#m]         [Bm]

[Bm]Now with all the clar[A]ity of drea[Bm]m
The blood so red, the gr[A]ass so g[Bm]reen
The gleam of spur on che[A]stnut fl[Bm]ank
[Em]The cavalry did [A]burst upon the r[F#m]anks    [Bm]

[Bm]Oh the iron will and iro[A]n hand  [Bm]
In england's green and pl[A]easant [Bm]land
No music for the sh[A]ameful sc[Bm]ene
[Em]That night they said it had [A]even shocked the que[F#m]en     [Bm]

[Bm]Well alas we've seen it [A]all befo[Bm]re
[Bm]Knights in armour, d[A]ays of y[Bm]ore
[Bm]The same old fears and the s[A]ame old crim[Bm]es
[Em]We haven't changed since an[A]cient ti[F#m]mes     [Bm]


It sounds allright if you just make some fingerplay between the verses and just
simplifies it doing the verses

My suggestion is something like this:

(left hand holds Bm - only right hand fingerplay, keep playing this over
when you shift the chords, it will sound allright)

e|--------2------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---3-------3---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------4--4--4--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------4-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---2-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
