Romeo and Juliet Dire Straits
Subject: CRD: Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straights
Here are the chords for Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straights.
all of the usual diclaimers/excuses apply.
I took it from "Money for Nothing", the greatest hits CD.
To hear some great solo work, see the live versions on Alchemy(?)
First of all, you capo on the fith fret and then play the intro chords
as you would in first position (i.e. play the F as a first position C,
the Dm as a first position Am, etc) then you will find that the intro
is a simple fingerpicking of the chords, don't have to hardly move
*NOTE* I wrote the actual chords out, not the normal thing of writing
out the chords as if in first position referenced to the capo. Sorry
about this, but I play it in first position while by friend plays
the capo'd part, so it was easier for me to write it this way. here is the conversion:
Actual chord Play Capo'd as first position
F (x87565) C
Dm (x57765) Am
C (875558) G
Bb (688766) F
Gm (xx5786) Dm

[F]Laying everybody [C]lo[Dm]w with a love s[C]ong that he [Bb]made
[C]Finds a street light steps[Bb] ou[C]t into the sh[F]ade
Says som[Bb]ething like you and me babe, [C]how about it?
[F]Juliet says hey it's Romeo,[C] y[Dm]ou nearly gave me a heart [C]at[F]tack
[F]He's underneath the window[C], [Dm]she's singing hey la my boyf[C]ri[Bb]ends back
[C]you shouldn't come around he[Bb]re s[C]inging up to people like [F]that
A[Bb]nyway, what you gonna do a[C]bout it?
[F]Juliet [C]the dice was l[Dm]oad[C]ed from the st[Bb]art
[F]And I b[C]et, and you ex[Dm]plo[C]ded in my hear[Bb]t.
[F]And I f[C]orget, I forge[Dm]t, the movie son[Bb]g
[Gm]When you gonna realize it was just t[F]hat the t[Bb]ime wa[C]s wron[Dm]g J[C]uli[F]et?
Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame
Both dirty both mean, yes and even and dream was just the same
And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real.
How can you look at me as if I was just another part of your deal
Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold.
you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin yeah
Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him.
Juliet when we made love you used to cry
you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
There's a place for us, you know the movie song
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?
I can't do the talk, like they talk on the tv
I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be.
I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you.
I cant't do anything but be in love with you.
And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
All I do is keep the beat and bad company.
All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet I'd do the stars with you anytime.
Repeat Chorus II:
A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade.
Now he's laying everymody low, with a love song that he made.
Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it
Bb C (as long as the lead player can do those tasty fills)
p.s. A second guitarist playing in first position really fills this song
out if you are not doing it with a full band.
