Indigo Girls, Romeo and Juliet (Live, 2017)


Romeo and Juliet" was written by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, and
appears on that band's 1980 album, "Making Movies." Amy Ray has
performed it fairly regularly since at least 1987. It's always been
one of my favorite DS songs, and I was pretty floored when I first
heard Amy do it, so I once asked her about it. She claimed that she
was inspired to cover it after she saw Dire Straits on their
"Brothers in Arms" tour. She felt that the arrangement that they
were using for the tour really lacked the edge of the "Making Movies"
version, and she wanted to try to bring back that edge. Which she
does, because her stripped-down version is PURE edge. (Personally,
though, I LOVED the DS arrangement from the "Brothers in Arms" tour -
I like it better than the original, in fact.) Anyway... Amy tends
to improvise with this one a bit, so I just transcribed the lyrics
off of "Making Movies."
Romeo and Juliet.

[Verse 1]
A love-struck Romeo
Sings the streets a serenade
Now he's layin' everybody low
He's got a love song that he made
He finds a convenient street light
And he steps out of the shade, and he says something like
"You and me babe, how about it?"

[Verse 2]
Juliet says, "Hey it's Romeo
He nearly gave me a heart attack" yeah well
He's underneath my window, now she's singing
"Hey-la my boyfriend's back"
Oh, you shouldn't come around here
Singing up to people like that
Oh anyway, whatcha gonna do about it?

Juliet, the dice were loaded from the start
And I bet, and you exploded into my heart
And I forget, I forget, the movie song
When you gonna realize
It was just that the time was wrong
