Sultans of Swing


A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it?

The National Steel Guitar shines under the spotlight like a proud lover lost in the blissful melody. Shuffling between an array of guitar from a flaming strat, telecaster to a sunbusrt Les Paul. The man has aged gracefully, theres no more of the Dire Straits days headband, swinging to Walk of life, but its Mark Knopfler — Boom Like That. The man, the guitar is a force to be reckon with when the band plays an extended version of Telegraph Road.

Then came the churches then came the schools
Then came the lawyers then came the rules
Then came the trains and the trucks with their loads
And the dirty old track was the Telegraph Road


Then came, Mark Knopfler LIVE in Bangalore 07 Feb, 2005.
