Sultans of Swing
Dire Straits Lyrics


You get a shiver in the dark
It's a raining in the park but meantime-
South of the river you stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing Dixie, double four time
You feel alright when you hear the music ring

Well now you step inside but you don't see too many faces
Coming in out of the rain they hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places
Uh but the horns they blowin' that sound
Way on down south
Way on down south
London town

You check out guitar George, he knows-all the chords
Mind, it's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing
They said an old guitar is all, he can afford
When he gets up under the lights to play his thing

And Harry doesn't mind, if he doesn't, make the scene
He's got a daytime job, he's doing alright
He can play the Honky Tonk like anything
Savin' it up, for Friday night
With the Sultans
We're the Sultans of Swing

Then a crowd a young boys they're a foolin' around in the corner
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
They don't give a damn about any trumpet playin' band
It ain't what they call Rock and Roll
And the Sultans
Yeah, the Sultans, they play Creole
Creole

And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings
"Goodnight, now it's time to go home"
Then he makes it fast with one more thing

"We are the Sultans
We are the Sultans of Swing"

One of the best sounding guitar styles of all time. Probably one of my all time favorite 70s songs. Reminds me of riding in the back of the station wagon with my buddies. This song was brand new then. Miss the 70s.

Приятно слушать, брат

Dane Martin

Beautiful era for real music.

Andy Matthews

I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Essa música tem o poder de me transportar para um lugar seguro, solitário e absolutamente incrível. Posso estar em meio a multidão… ao primeiro acorde já sinto algo mágico acontecer ,como se o tempo parasse e todos ao redor desaparecessem. Minha música favorita da vida. ❤️‍🔥
