Dire Straits -The Man's Too Strong


Verse 1

  Dm                                         C
  I am just an aging drummer-boy, and in the wars I used to play
  Bb                              Dm
  And I've called a tune to many a torture session.
  Dm                                          C
  Now they say I am a war criminal, and I'm a-fading away.
  Father, please hear my confession.

Verse 2

  G                     D
  I have legalized robbery and called it belief
  G                          D
  I have run with the money, I have hid like a thief
  G                         D
  I have rewritten history with my armies and my crooks
  D        C         Am         D
  Invented memories,      I did burn all the books
  Dm                                 C              Em
  And I can still hear his laughter, and I can still hear his song
  Emsus2                 Em                 D         C   D   C
