A Night in Summer Long Ago (Mark Knopfler)

LYRICS

My lady may I have this dance
Forgive a knight who knows no shame
My lady may I have this dance
And lady may I have your name
You danced upon a soldier's arm
And I felt the blade of love so keen
And when you smiled you did me harm
And I was drawn to you, my Queen

Now these boots may take me where they will
Though they may never shine like his
There is no knight I would not kill
To have my lady's hand to kiss
Yes and they did take me through the hall
To leave me not one breath from you
And they fell silent one and all
And you could see my heart was true

Then I did lead you from the hall
And we did ride upon the hill
Away beyond the city wall
And sure you are my lady still
A night in summer long ago
The stars were falling from the sky
And still, my heart, I have to know
Why do you love me, lady, why?

Apparently this song was played just once during the 2005 tour. From what I read it was a MK/RB duet and it was played at the first gig of the tour in Johannesburg, South Africa. Does anyone know if there's a recording of it?

Also according to setlist.fm, Don Henley played it a few times live in 2000/2001. Any info on that?

It has been played live often.  I think just not on the 2005 tour was what was meant.  I heard it in Glasgow 2011 and it was also played frequently in 1996.

The Paris version above is hilarious;  Mark shouts the lyrics making no attempt at 'singing' whatsoever!

That 2011 Glasgow version was a great and unexpected one!

I also witnessed it on 1996 in Barcelona, my first MK concert ever.
You might get lucky, now and then
