Mark Knopfler - Sucker Row


“Somebody’s gotta crack
A whip around here
Who’s minding the store?
Shake it up sell some beer
What’s your
Money maker for?
Pay day
We’re packin’ ‘em in
Six-gun Annie
And Buffalo Jill
But who’s to say
They’ll be back again
For a refill?
Honey, you know the drill
Ain’t no left turn
Down sleepy time street
You gotta be fast
But you gotta stay loose
Thinking
On your [...]

Банд’Эрос / Band’Eros - Китано / Kitano


“У нас всё будет, как у Китано,
Простого счастья ждать не стоит, не надо,
Всё будет странно, спонтанно, никаких планов
И романтических встреч у фонтанов.
Виски допиты, и на дне стакана
Причудливые блики, как с экрана,
И все ответы о самом главном,
Но умирать вроде рано.

Mark Knopfler - Boom, Like That


“I’m going to San Bernardino Ridididin
Milkshake mix is thus my thing now
These guys bought a heap of my stuff
And I gotta see a good thing shooting up now
Folks line up all down the street
Now I am seeing this girl devour her meat now
And then I get it Wham as clear [...]

Mark Knopfler - 5.15 A.M.


“5.15 a.m.
snow laying all around
a collier cycles home
from his night shift underground
past the silent pub
primary school, workingmens club
on the road from the pithead
the churchyard packed
with mining dead
then beneath the bridge
he comes to a giant car
a shroud of snow upon the roof
a mark ten jaguar
he thought the man was fast asleep
silent, [...]

Mark Knopfler - Old Pigweed


“Everything was in there
That you’d want to see
Corned beef and onions
And true love
Turnips and tinned tomatoes
Parsnips and a few potatoes
A couple extra blessings
From above
Now this here mingle-mangle
Was my best one yet
A big old bad goulash
Worth waiting for
And I’m just about to dip my can
Taste some brotherhood of man
When I get [...]

Mark Knopfler - Daddy’s Gone to Knoxville


“Oh, you’re gonna miss your daddy when he’s gone
When he’s gone
Yeah, you’re gonna miss your daddy when he’s gone
When he’s gone
Daddy’s gone down that Gallatin road
The hen never laid and the corn never growed
Oh, you’re gonna miss your daddy when he’s gone
Oh, I’d rather have a dollar than a dime
Than [...]

Mark Knopfler - The Ragpicker’s Dream


“When Jack Frost came for Christmas
With a brass monkey date
The rail-king and the scarecrow
Hopped a Florida freight
And they blew on their paper cups
And stared through the steam
Then they drank half a bottle
Of Ragpicker’s Dream
Where the whiskey keeps following
Cold pitchers of beer
Me and my associate
Like the clientele here get
The onions and [...]

Mark Knopfler - Coyote


“Look at me Coyote
Don’t let a little road dust put you off
You can’t judge a book
Well you know that stuff
There’s a tear in my upholstery
And a hole in my shoe
But don’t you just wish that you could
Make half of the speed I do
Speed I do, speed I do, speed I [...]

Mark Knopfler - You Don’t Know You’re Born


“What do you know about the hammer and the spike
What do you know about the farm
You don’t know
You don’t know what it’s like
Because you don’t know
You don’t know you’re born
What do you know about the hammer and the chisel
You only know the kitchen and the warm
You don’t know about the [...]

Mark Knopfler - Marbletown


 
“Roll out here mister
if you need a little rest
Roll out here mister
if you need a little rest
Lay me down in Marbletown
A bone yard is the best
There was a bad bull on the railroad
tried to pull me off this train
There was a bad bull on the railroad
tried to pull me [...]
