Intro lead
You get a shiver in the dark
         C           Bb       A
it`s raining in the park but meantime
Dm                      C           Bb          A
south of the river you stop and you hold everything
F                   C
a band is blowing Dixie double four time
        Bb                                 Dm    Bb C
you feel alright when you hear that music ring

               Dm              C        Bb          A
(Now) you step inside but you don`t see too many faces
 Dm                   C                        Bb      A
coming in out of the rain to (you) hear the jazz go down
F                       C
too much competition too many other places
Bb                                    Dm
But not too many horns can make that sound
Bb C
      way on downsouth
Bb C
      way on downsouth
Dm         Dm C Bb C    Dm C Bb C
London town

                Dm          C       Bb          A
you check out Guitar George he knows all the chords
Dm                                                 C   Bb             A
mind he`s (his) strictly rhythm he doesn`t want to make it cry or sing
F                       C
and an old guitar is all he can afford
Bb                                              Dm   Bb C
when he gets up under the lights to play his thing
Dm                      C     Bb         A
  (and) harry doesnb`t mind if he doesn`t make the scene
Dm             C        Bb                A
  He's got a daytime job he's doing alright
F                               C
  He can play honky tonk just like anything
Bb                      Dm      Bb C
  saving it up for friday night
                  Bb C
with the sultans
                     Dm     Dm C Bb C
with the sultans of swing
                            Dm C Bb C

        Dm                          C           Bb            A
and a crowd of young boys they`re fooling around in the corner
Dm                                    C                Bb           A
drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
F                                       C
They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band
   Bb                           Dm      Bb C
It ain't what they call rock and roll
                Bb C
and the sultans
                        Dm     Dm C Bb C
And the Sultans played Creole

                                Dm C Bb C

Lead 1: ( chords: Follow 1 full verse)

Dm                    C         Bb         A
and then the man he steps right up to the microphone
Dm          C                Bb         A    A7
and says at last just as the time bell rings
F                           C
thank you goodnight now it`s time to go home
        Bb                  Dm          Bb C
and he makes it fast with one more thing
                  Bb C
we are the sultans
                      Dm        Dm C Bb C
we are the sultans of swing

Dm              C               Bb              C
