The Man's Too Strong

(Mark Knopfler)
Dm C Bb Dm  (x2)

     Dm                                    C
I am just an aging drummer boy, and in the wars I used to play
         Bb                                Dm
And I've called the tune to many a torture session
                                          C
Now they say I am a war criminal, and I'm fading away
Bb                        Dm
Father, please hear my confession

       G                  D
I have legalized robbery, called it belief
       G                          D
I have run with the money, I have hid like a thief
G                       D
Re-written history with armies and my crooks
         C      Am       D
Invented memories, I did burn all the books

          Dm        
And I can still hear his laughter,
          C              Am
And I can still hear his song
              Em
The man's too big;
              D C   D C  C G  
The man's too strong

Gm  D

       G                        D
Well I tried to be meek, I have tried to be mild
      G                      D
But I spat like a woman, and sulked like a child
       G                             D
I have lived behind walls, that have made me alone
            C    Am             D
Striven for peace, which I have never known

          Dm        
And I can still hear his laughter,
          C              Am
And I can still hear his song
              Em
The man's too big;
              D C   D C  C G  
The man's too strong

Gm  D

         G                                   D
Well the sun rose on the courtyard, and they all did hear him say
     G                         D
"You always was a Judas, but I got you anyway
    G                               D
You may have got your silver, but I swear upon my life
                    C       Am               D
Your sister gave me diamonds, and I gave 'em to your wife"

                  Dm
Oh father, please help me,
    C           Am
For I have done wrong
              Em
The man's too big;
              D C   D C  C G  
The man's too strong
