5.15 a.m.  Mark Knopfler

[E]5.15 a.m.
snow laying all around[A]
a collier cycles home
from his night shift undergroun[E]d
[E]past the silent pub
primary school, workingmens club
[A]on the road from the pithead
the churchyard packed
with mining d[B7]ead
[E]then beneath the bridge
he comes to a giant car
A fis
a shroud of snow upon the roof
a mark ten ja[E]guar
[A]he thought the man was fast asleep
[E]silent, still and deep
both dead and co[A]ld
shot through
with bullet ho[B7]les
fis cis
the one armed bandit man
came north to fill his b[A]oots
came up from cockneyland
e-type jags and flashy suits
put your money in
pull the levers
watch them spin
[A]cash cows in all the pubs
but he preferred the new nightc[B7]lubs
                                    [E]nineteen sixty-seven
bandit men in birdcage heaven [A]
la dolce vita, sixty-nine
all new to people of the t[E]yne
[E]who knows who did what
somebody made a call
they s[A]aid his hands
were in the pot
that he?d been skimming hau[E]ls
he picks up the swag
they gaily gave away
[A]drives his giant jag
fis H7
off to his big pay day
fis cis
the bandit man
came north to f[A]ill his boots
came up from cockneyland
e-type jags and flashy suits
the bandit man
[A]came up the great north road
up to geordieland
to mine
the mother l[B7]ode
[E]seams blew up or cracked
black diamonds came hard won[A]
generations toiled and hacked
for a pittance and black l[E]ung
crushed by tub or stone
together and alone
[A]how the young and old
fis H7
paid the price of coal
[E]eighteen sixty-seven
my angel?s gone to hea[A]ven
he?ll be happy there
sunlight and sweet clean air [E]
[E]they gather round the glass
tough hewers and cr[A]utters
child trappers and putters
the little foals and half-mar[E]rows
[A]who pushed
and pulled the barrows
[A]the hod boys
and the rolleyw[E]aymen
5.15 a.m.
