Here are the chords for Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straights. all of the usual diclaimers/excuses apply.
I took it from "Money for Nothing", the greatest hits CD. To hear some great solo work, see the live versions on Alchemy(?)
First of all, you capo on the fith fret and then play the intro chords as you would in first position (i.e. play the F as a first position C, the Dm as a first position Am, etc) then you will find that the intro is a simple fingerpicking of the chords, don't have to hardly move the hands!
*NOTE* I wrote the actual chords out, not the normal thing of writing out the chords as if in first position referenced to the capo. Sorry about this, but I play it in first position while by friend plays the capo'd part, so it was easier for me to write it this way. here is the conversion:
Actual chord Play Capo'd as first position F (x87565) C Dm (x57765) Am (875558) (688766) Gm (xx5786) Dm
Romeo and Juliet: intro: F Dm x4
A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
Finds a street light steps out into the shade
Says something like you and me babe, how about it?
Juliet says hey it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack
He's underneath the window, she's singing hey la my boyfriends back
you shouldn't come around here singing up to people like that
Anyway, what you gonna do about it?
Juliet the dice was loaded from the start
And I bet, and you exploded in my heart.
And I forget, I forget, the movie song
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?
Verse II: Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame Both dirty both mean, yes and even and dream was just the same And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real. How can you look at me as if I was just another part of your deal
Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold. you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin yeah Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him.
Chorus II: Juliet when we made love you used to cry you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die There's a place for us, you know the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?
Verse III: I can't do the talk, like they talk on the tv I can't do a love song, like the way it's meant to be. I can't do anything, but I'd do anything for you. I cant't do anything but be in love with you.
And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be All I do is keep the beat and bad company. All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme Juliet I'd do the stars with you anytime.
Repeat Chorus II:
Verse IV: A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade. Now he's laying everymody low, with a love song that he made. Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade Says something like you and me babe how about it
outro: Bb C (as long as the lead player can do those tasty fills)
p.s. A second guitarist playing in first position really fills this song out if you are not doing it with a full band.
