Single-Handed Sailor

(Mark Knopfler)
Dm   C  G

Dm         C       Bb        F
Two in the morning bright uptown
Dm            C                 Bb  F
The river run away in the night
Dm          C             Bb        F
Little Gypsy mare she's all tied down
Dm             C                      Bb  F
She put her in the wind and the light

Yeah, the sailing ship is just held down in chains
From the lazy days of sailing
She's just lying there silent in pain
You lean on the tourist rail

Am                            Dm           Dm C Bb
A mother and her baby in the college of war
In the concrete grave
Dm                C                 Bb         F
You never want to fight against the river law
Gm                 Bb
Nobody rules the waves

            C             A7           Dm
Yeah, on a night when the lazy wind is wailing
Bb                  C
Around the cutting saw
 Dm            C     Bb      F
Single-handed sailor go sailing
Gm                       Bb
Singing away in the dark

He's up on the bridge on the self-say night
A mariner of dried-up land
Two in the morning, well there's one green light
And the man on the barge is sad

She's gonna step away below him
Away from things he's done
But he just shouts, "Hey man whatcha call this thing?"
She could say, "Pride of London"

On a night when the lazy wind is wailing
Around the cutting saw
Yeah, single-handed sailor go sailing
Singing away in the dark
