    hi, try this

    You get a shiver in the dark

    C Bb A7(x02223)
    It's raining in the park, but meantime

    Dm C Bb A7
    South of the river you stop and you hold everything

    F C
    A band is blowing Dixie double four time

    Bb Dm Bb C
    You feel all right when you hear that music ring

    Dm C Bb A7
    Well now you step inside but you don't see too many faces

    Dm C Bb A7
    Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down

    F C
    Competition, too many other places

    Bb Dm Bb C
    But the horns, they're blowing that sound

    Bb C Dm Bb C Dm Bb C
    Way on downsouth way on downsouth London town

    You check out Guitar George
    he knows all them fancy chords
    Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing
    It is an old guitar is all he can afford
    When he gets under the lights to play his thing

    And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene
    He's got a daytime job he's doing alright
    He can play honky tonk like anything
    Saving it up for Friday night

    With the Sultans, with the Sultans of Swing

    And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner
    Drunk and dressed in their baggies and their best king's road
    They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band
    It ain't what they call rock and roll

    And the Sultans, yeah the sultans, they played Creole. Creole.

    (instrumental part - play like the normal verse.)

    And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
    And says at last just as the time bell rings
    'Thank you goodnight now it's time to go home'
    and he makes it fast with one more thing
    'We are the Sultans, we are the sultans of Swing'

    (fade away)
