5 15 Am  Mark Knopfler

(Album: Shangri-La)

capo: 1

[D]5.15 a.m.   Snow laying all around
[G]A collier cycles home  From his night shift under[D]ground
[A]Past the silent pub Primary school, workingmens club
[Em]On the road from the pithead The churchyard [G]packed
With mining [D]dead
[D]Then beneath the bridge  He comes to a giant car
[G]A shroud of snow upon the roof ,,,  A Mark Ten Jagu[D]ar
[A]He thought the man was fast asleep,, Silent, still and deep
[Em]Both dead and cold,,  Shot [G]through  With bullet [D]holes
[Gmaj7]The one armed bandit man Came north to fill his boots
[D]Came up from cockneyland,,  E-type Jags and flashy suits
[Gmaj7]Put your money in, Pull the levers Watch them spin
[D]Cash cows in all the pubs,  But he preferred the new nightcl[A]ubs
[A]Nineteen sixty-seven, Bandit men in birdcage heaven
[Bm]La dolce vita, sixty-nine [G]All new to people of the Tim[D]e   [A]  [D]  [D]
[D]Who knows who did what  Somebody made a call
They [G]said his hands Were in the pot, That he'd been skimming [D]hauls
[A]He picks up the swag They gaily gave away [Em]Drives his giant Jag
Off [G]to his big pay [D]day
[Gmaj7]O'The bandit man, Came north to fill his boots
[D]Came up from cockneyland,  E-type Jags and flashy suits
[Gmaj7]O'The bandit man Came up the great north road
[D]Up to geordieland, To mine, The mother lod[A]e
[D]Seams blew up or cracked, Black diamonds came hard won
[G]Generations toiled and hacked, For a pittance and black [D]lung
[A]Crushed by tub or stone, Together And alone
[Em]How the young and old Paid the [G]price of [D]coal
[A]Eighteen sixty-seven, My angel's gone to heaven
[Bm]He'll be happy there [G]Sunlight and sweet clean air [D]  [A] [D] [D]
(sung slower)

[D]They gather round the glass  [D] [D]  Tough hewers and crutters
[Bm]Child trappers and putters, The little foals [G]and half-[A]marrows
[Em]Who pushed And pulled the [A]barrows
[Em]The hod boys, And the [G]rolleywaymen
[D]5.15 a.m.  [D] [D] (f[D]ade)
