It Never Rains

(Mark Knopfler)
G5 A5  D5 B5 D5  G5 A5 D5 
G5 D5  D5 B5  G5 A5  D5  

G5 A5  F#5 B5 B5  G5 A5 D5 
G5 A5 A5  F#5 B5 B5  G5 A5  G5 D5 
 
D5       D5                A5        D5                      B5            G5 
I hear the seven deadly sins and the terrible twins came to call on you 
D5                  A5       D5          G5      A5 
  The bigger they are baby,   the harder they fall on you 
                D5          G5     A5             D5                         G5       A5 
And you were always the same,  you persevere  on the same old pleasure ground 
B5       D5          G5  E5    A5    F#5  G5                A5            D5 
  Oh and it never rains    around here,             it just comes pouring down 

G5 A5  F#5 B5 B5  G5 A5  D5 
You had no more volunteers,
so you got profiteers for to help you out 
Well with friends like that babe,
good friends you had to do without, 

And now they've taken the chains and the gears
From off your merry-go-round
Oh and it never rains around here
It just comes pouring down. 
 
And your new Romeo
Was just a gigolo when he let you down
See the faster they are babe
The faster they get out of town
Leaving make up stains and the tears
Of a clown
Yes and it never rains around here
It just comes pouring down

G5  A5              E5        A5  E5                                                 G5 D5 
Oh you were just a rollercoaster memory, I don't know why I was even passing through, 
  A5               E5      A5    D5  G5       A5                 E5        A5    DG5 
I saw you make a date with destiny,      when he came around here asking after you 
 
In the shadow of the Wheel of Fortune
You're busy trying to clear your name
You say 'I may be guilty yeah that may be true
But I'd be lying if I said I was to blame
See we could have been major contenders
We never got no money no breaks'
You've got a list of all the major offenders
You got a list of all their major mistakes
And he's just standing on the shadows
Yes and you smile that come-on smile
Oh I can still hear you say as clear as the day
'I'd like to make it worth your while'


D5  A5          D5                                                        B5         G5
  Ah but it's a sad reminder when your organ grinder has to come to you for the rent 
D5                                                     A5 
  And all you've got to give him is the use of your side-show tent 
                D5               G5  A5                       F#5    G5     B5 
Yes and that's all that remains    of the years spent doing the rounds 
F#5          G5            A5    G5        A5                 D5 
And it never rains around here,   well it just come pouring down. 
      A5                       E5  A5    E5 A5                 E5          A5        G5 D5 
Now you know what they say about beggars,       you can't complain about the rules, 
      A5                       E5  A5    B5 G5 A5                    E5               A5 
Now you know what they say about beggars,       you know who's the first to blame his tools

You never gave a damn about who you pick up
And leave lying bleeding on the ground
You screw people over on the way up
Because you thought that you were never coming down
And he takes you out in Vaudeville Valley
With his hand up smothering your screams
And he screws you down in Tin Pan Alley
In the city of a billion dreams
из альбома: “Love over Gold” (1982)
