Dire Straits - Private Investigation



Its a mystery to me
The game commences
For the usual fee
Plus expenses
Confidential information
Its in a diary
This is my investigation
Its not a public inquiry

I go checking out the report
Digging up the dirt
You get to meet all sorts
In the line of work
Treachery and treason
Theres always an excuse for it
And when I find the reason
I still cant get used to it

And what have you got at the end of the day ?
What have you got to take away ?
A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies
Blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes

Scarred for life
No compensation
Private investigations

Do you know where we can get the live recording for this song ?
Mark Knopfler ( or was it David ) extended the half a minute of solo guitar into a 4 minutes saga that’s considered by most as the best ever played since the instrument was invented.
If you do have a link, I’d be very grateful if you posted it .. thanks
