Dealer

Chords and lyrics for Dealer by John Martyn

 
Well, I  
C# 
cannot be  
G# 
your lover and I will not be your friend
 
Well, I know you say you need me  
G#m7 
but I have no time to spend
We could talk like this for hours, I’d just end up getting bored
 
‘Cause no  
E 
one needs a dealer just a day before  
B 
 
score
 
Let  
E 
me in, let me in
 
Let me in, sweet darling,  
B 
let me in,  
C#m 
let me in
Let me in, let me in
 
Let me in, sweet darling, let me  
F# 
in, let me in
Em 
 
Do you think that you could  
F# 
leave 
 
me?
Could you leave and go away just for a little while?
Do you think that I could leave you?
C# 
Could I leave and go away just  
F# 
for a change of style?
 
C# 
Well, the children  
E 
up there dig my shit so I sell it to them cheap
 
Better bring the  
B 
scales and check the deal
 
Getting  
F#m7 
scared that I might cheat
Em 
Well, you’re just a speck of polish on  
F# 
the fat man’s shiny shoes
 
And I think I hate them for it and I think they hate me  
C# 
too

Let me in, let me in

 
Let  
G#m 
me in, sweet darling, let  
C# 
me in, let me in
 
Let me in,  
B 
let me in
 
Let me in, sweet darling,  
E 
let me in, let  
B 
me 
 
in
 
Well, you spend  
F# 
your whole life moaning down the telephone for bread
You can’t get your sleep for trying, darling, remember what you said
 
You come around most any time, sell me  
A 
what you can
 
What you see is what you  
F#m 
get, catch  
E7 
me if you  
F#m 
can

Let me in, let me in

 
Let me in, sweet darling, let  
Bm 
me in, let  
Em 
me 
 
in
 
Let  
B 
me in, let me in
 
Let me in,  
F# 
sweet darling, let me in,  
B 
let me in
 
Do you think  
F# 
that you could leave  
B 
me?
 
Could you  
Em 
leave and go away  
Bm 
just for a  
C#m 
little 
 
while?
 
Do  
A 
you 
 
 
F#m7 
think that  
E 
I could leave  
Am 
you?
 
Could I leave and  
A 
go away just  
F#m 
for a change of style?

Well, I cannot be your lover and I will not be your friend

 
Well,  
B 
I know  
E 
you say you need  
G#m 
me but  
B 
I have  
F# 
no time to spend
 
We could talk  
F#m 
like this for hours,  
F#m7 
I’d just end up getting bored
 
‘Cause no  
F# 
one needs a dealer just a day  
Em 
before a score

Let me in

Let me in
Let me in
