After reading a couple of times, seems to talk about a little village that develops into something bigger, maybe industrial, but even it's changed what the village was remains in a way.

I remembered the words from the review by Gabriel David Barkin: ... stability in the face of change...
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

...The thing about a boom is
There's always a bust

I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

A "timeless country song" it is called in a review from Mojo. Sounds promising.

If so, this song will be more American:)

To me, this is the outstanding track on the album. Among his best songs in general but for sure since 2002, sheer beauty, lovely melody, wonderful solo. Could have been on every Dire Straits album and would stand the test of time. I totally wonder why no review has mentioned this and why this is not the single.

I wonder who, or maybe (probably) what Janine is...

By the lyrics seems like is someone or something MK is supposed to be talking like in Seattle, he's not talking with the city obviously!
You might get lucky, now and then

It's just a Name, like Juliet or Nadine.

Got stuck in an endless Janine Loop and it struck me that Janine is the name of the (cow)town? Have we already talked about this possibility?

In a way I did, when I said that Janine might be someone, or something...

This song musically makes me think about Beachcombing mixed with Donkeytown, and this last song lyrically has some resemblances as it talks about a town, and that led me to think that maybe Janine is a town which is changing...

Pretty much!

I’m not sure I can express how much I love this song already (my first listen of the album took ages because I had Janine on repeat for at least half an hour) and I really can’t think of a song on the last two albums—maybe more—that have hit me this hard from the first listen.

For my money there are at least three tracks on One Deep River that would have been much better singles/promo songs than what they chose, and Janine is one of them (it’s rather baffling, but there you go).

People who have made ATRR comparisons are right; there are definitely some Beyond My Wildest Dreams/Beachcombing/Donkey Town vibes—mainly musically, but lyrically as well.

In the end, it’s 100% pure, top-shelf Mark Knopfler—and who could  ask for more?

What a beautiful song with a wonderful guitar solo by the man who still has the most elegant touch on the guitar.
One of my favourite songs on the new record. I listen on repeat.
I think Janine is the name of the town.
This is all the heaven we've got, right here where we are in our Shangri-La.
