Easy Guitar Tabs : Sting – Shape Of My Heart




Am               Em          Dm             E7
He deals the cards as a meditation
Am                 Em             Dm       E7
And those he plays never suspect
F                                  C            E7
He doesn't play for the money he wins
F             E7        Am
He don't play for respect
Am  Em  Dm  E7...
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance
Am                                                C                 E
I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
Am                                                        Dm
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
F                                               C                     E
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
F                              E
But that's not the shape of my heart
Am  Em  Dm  E7...
He may play the Jack of diamonds
He may lay the Queen of spades
He may conceal a King in his hand
While the memory of it fades
Am  C  E  Am...
I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
F                     E                               C  E
That's not the shape, the shape of my heart
Am  C  E  Am...
And if I told you that I loved you
You'd maybe think there's something wrong
I'm not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one
Am  C  E  Am...
But those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who fear a loss
Am  C  E  Am...
I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape, the shape of my heart.

I like my toast done on one side

And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
            G             A          Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York

See me walking down Fifth Avenue
A walking cane here at my side
I take it everywhere I walk
I'm an Englishman in New York

It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what they say

      F#                                            Bm     Em  A  Bm
At night a candle's brighter than the sun
Em  A  Bm...
Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Takes more than a license for a gun
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
A gentleman will walk but never run
Em  A  Bm...
If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Then he's the hero of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what they say
Em  A  F#m  Bm...
I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York
I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York

Am
I dream of rain
G
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
F
I wake in pain
Dm7                           E7sus4
I dream of love as time runs through my hand
Am
I dream of fire
These dreams that are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
The shadows play in the shape of a mans desire
C
This desert rose
Em7
Each of her veils, a secret promise
G
This desert flower
Dm7                              E7sus4
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this
Am
And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothings as it seems
Am  G  F...
I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand
Am  G  F...
I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love
Am  G  F...
I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand
C  Em7  G...
Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this
C  Em7  G...
Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower, This rare perfume
is the sweet intoxication of the fall…

Easy Guitar Tabs : Sting – Fields Of Gold





C           Am                                            F
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
                             C
Upon the fields of barley
          Am                         F         C
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
            F         G           C       F  C
As we walk in fields of gold
C  Am  F  C...
So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold
C  Am  F  C...
Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold
C  Am  F  C...
See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold
F                    C
I never made promises lightly
F                                C
And there have been some that I've broken
F                           C
But I swear in the days still left
           F         G         C
We'll walk in fields of gold
           F         G         C
We'll walk in fields of gold.
C  Am  F  C...
Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
C  Am  F  C...
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
                  F             G         C
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold.
