      About "In The Gallery"

      Lyrics for Dire Straits - "In The Gallery"

      Harry made a bareback rider proud and free upon a horse
      And a fine coal miner for the NCB that was
      A fallen angel and Jesus on the cross
      A skating ballerina you should have seen her do the skater's waltz
      Some people have got to paint and draw
      Harry had to work in clay and stone
      Like the waves coming to the shore
      It was in his blood and in his bones

      Ignored by all the trendy boys in London and in Leeds
      He might as well have been making toys or strings of beads
      He could not be in the gallery
      And then you get an artist says he doesn't want to paint at all
      He takes an empty canvas and sticks it on the wall
      The birds of a feather all the phonies and all of the fakes

      While the dealers they get together
      And they decide who gets the breaks
      And who's going to be in the gallery
      No lies he wouldn't compromise
      No junk no bits of string

      And all the lies we subsidize
      That just don't mean a thing
      I've got to say he passed away in obscurity
      And now all the vultures are coming down from the tree
      So he's going to be in the gallery.
