Mark Knopfler - Hill Farmer's Blues Lyrics

I'm going into Tow Law
For what I need
Chain for the ripsaw
Killer for the weed
The dog's at the back door
Leave him be
Don't feed him jack
And don't wait up for me

Going into Tow Law
To fuel my fire
Shells for the twelve
And razor wire
The dog's at the back door
Leave him be
Don't do jack
And don't wait up for me

So bad so bad
So bad so bad

I'm going into Tow Law
To have my fun
Don't get me wrong
You were the only one
Behind my back lord
You made a fool of me
Don't do jack
And don't wait up for me

So bad so bad
So bad so bad

    Mark Knopfler lends nobility to the human race with an electric guitar...his art...his grace...his humble voice finds a profound place...we are in "Dire Straits" as a a human race...his words find higher meaning....

    Anda que no hacía calor aquel día en Córdoba y en aquel concierto, creo que es el día de vida que más calor he pasado pero valió la pena una y mil veces. Repetiría ahora mismo si pudiera. Nos dio un concierto inolvidable a pesar de estar convaleciente de una cirugía. Todo un genio de la música. Gracias maestro por ese recuerdo maravilloso que permanecerá en mi para siempre. ❤️

    Saw him play this in concert in 2015. By the end of the song I was just drained of all strength. F*&^in incredible!

  40. Stuart Mclaughlin

    The tone he gets from that Les Paul is unbelievable. Top musicianship right there on that stage. The drums and bass line when Mark is playing the outro is top notch.

  50. victor.Leslie August Pikington August pilkington

    When you think that this man was in so much pain he had to sit down , but did he cry off and go and lay down and feel sorry for himself NO he got up on stage found a chair and gave his adoring fans what they came to see and hear , that's at God level long live MK

  51. Pasci

    Amazing, soooo beautiful...

  52. sikorka sikorka

    super super

  53. Juan Antonio Ortigosa Arjona

    Era un invierno frío, muy frío y de Luna grande. Extraño como las melodías que guardaron todo en sus notas. Sin embargo vino ella a calentarlo. Al recibir de nuevo esta canción, hoy, se instalaron todos los momentos vividos aquel 2015 en que tantas lágrimas me haría derramar al recordarle. Hoy. Justamente hoy en que todo parece romperse en las desgarradoras notas de su guitarra... Y aún no cumplimos el deseo de ir allí al lugar del Índalo en el que ya vivimos otra vida.

  54. Ravi B

    My favourite song. What an intro piece and of course the drums; fell in love the first time i heard it. Based on this, pls can anyone suggest more songs by any other artist ?? My journey of discovering musicians/music has come to a standstill since the time i have discovered Knopfler; it's been 5 years and i have not been able to discover more stuff.
    Started with metal, moved towards classic rock, Pink floyd was before Mark Knopfler dawned and the only stuff i listen to now is Knopfler and Beethoven, and of course a few fav tracks here and there. I am 33 and i begin to question why age has something to do with discovering more artists. Eager to receive recommendations. Long live Knopfler and his band !


    Give Rush Permanent waves a try, all of it; musical geniuses of the highest order. 3 guys creating all of that layered music. My other fav along with Knopfler/DS, and Floyd.

  55. khaled khader

    mark numéro 1,,,,,,rien à dire

  56. TheChris9110

    it's too good to describe.

  57. Dan Bolger

    I love this song. Long been a fan of Mark Knopfler's music. The lyrics and instrumentation are phenomenal. Journalistic, soulful, and worldly.

  58. sirosewoudt

    Look at the bass player going wild!! Love this song!


    I noticed that as well; that wallowing bass he’s all over that neck; wild. He’s making love to that instrument! And I think he’s using a pick... which is OK.

  59. Jon Dough

    the sounds !....the sounds of this.... -really, need no is an amazing collection of -emotions- simply captured for your ears, your thoughts, and your heart... -Bravo Mark ! you are an amazing musician,...par excellence in this world, today. there is no doubt in my mind that God guides your spirit -and your fingers...keep on, keepin on...
