                   Dm                              C (½)            Bb (½)         A (2)

    You get a shiver in the dark, it's a-raining in the park but meantime

    Dm                                      C (½)           Bb (½)       A (2)

        South of the river you stop and you hold, everything

    F (2)                                               C (2)

       A band is blowing Dixie, double four time

    Bb (2)

       You feel all right when you hear that music ring

     

    / Dm - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - - - /

     

                        Dm                        C (½)      Bb (½)       A (2)

    Well now you step inside but you don't see too many faces

    Dm                                  C (½)              Bb (½) A (2)

         Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down

    F (2)                                  C (2)

          Competition in other places

    Bb (2)

        Oh, but the horns, they blowing that sound

     

    / Dm - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - - - /                    

                                            Way on down south, way on down south, London town

     

    / Dm - - (C) / (Bb) - - - / C - - - / - - - - /

    / Dm - - (C) / (Bb) - - - / C - - - / - - - - /

    You check out guitar George              he knows all the chords

    Dm                                        C (½)                Bb (½)       A (2)

        Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing

    F (2)                                   C (2)

        Yes, and an old guitar is all he can afford

    Bb (2)

        When he gets up under the lights to play his thing

     

    / Dm - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - - - /

     

    Dm                          C (½) Bb (½)         A (2)

        And Harry doesn't mind  if he doesn't    make the scene

    Dm                            C (½)      Bb (½)  A (2)

         He's got a daytime job, he's doing alright

    F (2)                                               C (2)

        He can play the honky tonk like anything

    Bb (2)

        Saving it up for Friday night

     

    / Dm - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - - - /                    

                                           With the Sultans,       with the Sultans of Swing

    / Dm - - (C) / (Bb) - - - / C - - - / - - - - /

    / Dm - - (C) / (Bb) - - - / C - - - / - - - - /

     

              Dm                                     C (½)        Bb (½)        A (2)

    And a crowd of young boys, they're fooling around in the corner

    Dm                                             C (½)                       Bb (½)      A (2)

       Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles

    F (2)                                               C (2)

       They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band

    Bb (2)

         It ain't what they call rock and roll

     

    / Dm - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - - - /                    

                                           And the Sultans,         yeah the Sultans, they played Creole, Creole

    Dm                                     C (½)      Bb (½)       A (2)

         And then the man, he steps right up to the microphone

    Dm                      C (½)            Bb (½)    A (2)

         And says at last, just as the time bell rings

    F (2)                             C (2)

       Goodnight, now it's time to go home

    Bb (2)

        And he makes it fast with one more thing

     

    / Dm - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - (Bb) - / C - - - / - - - - /
