Skateaway

Dire Straits - Skateaway
 
 
INTRO: D G-C  (4x)
 
         D                          G C
I seen a girl on a one-way corridor
         D                      G  C  G  D
Stealing down a wrong-way street
                          G     C
For all the world like an urban toreador
        D         G C          G  D
She had wheels on,  on her feet
                G     C      D
The cars do the usual dances
                        G        C     G  D
Same old cruise and the kerbside crawl
                          G      C        D
But the Rollergirl, she's taking chances
                  G C          G
Just love to see her take them all
 
 
CHORUS 1:
A         
No fears alone at night
C                   Em     A
Sailing through the crowd
                C
In her ears the phones are tight
                        A     D A D
And the music's playing loud
 
 
          G C               D
Hallelujah,  here she comes
            G C  G D
Queen rollerball
              G C               D
And "Enchanté",  what can I say
      G C   G D
Care at all
           G  C
You know, she used to have to wait around
                   D         G C  G  D
She used to be the lonely one
                   G C                D
But now that she can skate around town
              G C    G   
She's the only, only one
 
 
CHORUS 1:
A         
No fears alone at night
C                   Em     A
Sailing through the crowd
                C
In her ears the phones are tight
                        D    
And the music's playing loud
 
 
CHORUS 2:
C   D    G                        Bm   Em7
She gets rock n roll, on a rock n roll station
                        D  C
And a rock n roll dream
                   Am           G
She's making movies on location
               D
She don't know what it means
        G                              Bm
And the music maker wanna be the story
        Em7                                          C
And the story was whatever was the song, what it was
          Am            G
Rollergirl, don't worry
              D     Em         C               G     A  D
D.J. play the movies all night long, all night long
 
 
    G        C                         D
She tortures taxi drivers just for fun
                            G C  G  D
She like to read their lips
                  G C                            D
Says, "Toro, toro taxi, see ya tomorrow my son"
                       G C              G  D
She just let a big truck grease her hip,   ah!
                          G  C         G D
She got her own world in the city, hey
                   D    G C       G  D
You can't intrude on her, no, no, no
                   G C            D
She got her own world in the city
                 G C       G   
The city's been so rude to her
 
 
CHORUS 1:
A         
No fears alone at night
C                   Em     A
Sailing through the crowd
                C
In her ears the phones are tight
        C               D    
And the music's playing loud
 
 
CHORUS 2:
C   D    G                        Bm   Em7
She gets rock n roll, on a rock n roll station
                        D  C
And a rock n roll dream
                   Am           G
She's making movies on location
               D
She don't know what it means
        G                              Bm
But the music maker wanna be the story
        Em7                                           C
And the story was whatever was the song, what it was
          Am            G
Rollergirl, don't worry
              D     Em         C               G     A   D G C
D.J. play the movies all night long, all night long
