Farka Is Coming  Unknown



[A5]  Two years ag[B5]o Ali Farka [C5]left his people  [D5]       [B5]
[A5]  Looking for [B5] wisdom     [C5]                 [D5]       [B5]
[A5]  And as soon as he'd  [B5]found it he'd re[C5]turn   [D5]  To his [B5]people
[A5]                                     
[D5]Master has been long a[C5]way from us on his [Bb5]trip
[D5]None of us have heard a [C5]word from him in two [Bb5]years
[D5]Everyone is waiting [C5]for the day of his re[Ab5]turn, but
[D5]wait the silence's breaking, [C5]I climb up in the nearest tree to
[B5]see who could be coming round to [Bb5]visit [A5]us
[E5]I    can [C5/E]see      [F#m]Farka  [A5]com[D5]ing
[E5]riding   [C5/E]on his a[F#m]rabian [A5]horse,[D5]  the
[E5]shade of [C5/E]him, it can't [F#5]be mis[A5]tak[D5]en
[E5]I    can [C5/E]see our [F#m]master [A5]come [D5]
[D5]Still he's far away too [C5]far away for me to [Bb5]see, per-
[D5]haps I was mistaken [C5]when I thought I saw him [Bb5]come
[D5]Intuition tells me [C5]I could maybe be [Bb5]wrong, but
[D5]wait the silence's breaking, [C5]I go up on the mountain side, to
[B5]see who could be coming round to [Bb5]visit [A5]us,
[A5]there must be something big going on now
[E5]I    can [C5/E]see      [F#m]Farka  [A5]com[D5]ing
[E5]riding   [C5/E]on his a[F#m]rabian [A5]horse,[D5]  the
[E5]shade of [C5/E]him, it can't [F#5]be mis[A5]tak[D5]en
[E5]I    can [C5/E]see our [F#m]master [A5]come [D5]
[C#5]Party's on, [D5]the [C#5]people gathers, [D5]   [C#5]Farka's brought [D5]his
[Eb5]wisdom to us, his wisdom [D5]to [C#5]us
(Solo: Over verse)

[E5]I    can [C5/E]see      [F#m]Farka  [A5]com[D5]ing
[E5]riding   [C5/E]on his a[F#m]rabian [A5]horse,[D5]  the
[E5]shade of [C5/E]him, it can't [F#5]be mis[A5]tak[D5]en
[E5]I    can [C5/E]see our [F#m]master [A5]come [D5]
