Iron Hand

Dire Straits

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

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

 BmABm
 With all the clarity of dream
 ABm
The sky so blue, the grass so green
 BmABm
 The rank and file and the navy blue
 EmAF#mBm
 The deep and strong, the straight and true        

 BmABm
 The blue line they got the given sign
 ABm
The belts and boots march forward in time
 BmAbm
 The wood and leather the club and shield 
 EmAF#mBm
 Swept like a wave across the battlefield          

 BmABm
 Now with all the clarity of dream
 ABm
The blood so red, the grass so green
 ABm
The gleam of spur on chestnut flank
 EmAF#mBm
 The cavalry did burst upon the ranks     

 BmABm
 Oh the iron will and iron hand   
 ABm
In england's green and pleasant land
 ABm
No music for the shameful scene
 EmAF#mBm
 That night they said it had even shocked the queen      

 BmABm
 Well alas we've seen it all before
 BmABm
 Knights in armour, days of yore
 BmABm
 The same old fears and the same old crimes
 EmAF#mBm
 We haven't changed since ancient times      

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)
