	This is my first post of chords, so I'm praying 
the lines w/ chords and the lines w/ words roughly 
match up.

	Someone (sorry didn't catch name, cause I'm new 
to this game) posted a request for the chords to 
"It's Money That Matters" by Randy Newman, from the 
recording "Land of Dreams" (Reprise 25773--a few bad tunes, but a few 
really great tunes, so buy it!).  The 
poster can e-mail me for clarification.  

	I welcome all corrections, suggestions, praise, and flames at my 
e-mail address.

	Here is a condensation of the chords for the 
tune.  It's pretty much a "cycle" tune, so I didn't include all lyrics 
and verses.

	Notes:  The verse merely cycles through D-A-G-D 
(with two beats per chord, but note that the D 
chord repeats at beginning and end of each cycle).  What Newman 
calls the Chorus (where he sings "It's money that 
matters") follows the same D-A-G-D pattern.

	What I have called Bridge I is pretty 
straightforward, but what I have called Bridge II 
is actually a little riff section, so the chords 
are deceptive.  I will spell the notes in the "C-no third" riff 
(pretty wimpy thing to call a riff) so you can get 
it a little better.  For the "C no third" chord, 
don't even bother playing a chord, just play the 
riff notes, duplicated in all the octaves you can 
spare (within reason).

	Bridge I appears only once in the song.  Bridge 
II comes twice:  once after Bridge I (and a short turnaround), and once 
after the third verse.

	You're on your own to sound like Mark Knopfler 
does on the recording.
