A Christmas Camel  Procol Harum

"A Christmas Camel"
(Gary Brooker - Keith Reid)
(descending piano glissando)
piano arr. for guitar (2x: band enters 2nd time):
[Gm]v v [Cm/G] v [Gm] v [Gm]v [Cm/G] v [Gm] v v

Verse 2:
[Gm]My Amaz[G]on six-t[Eb]riggered b[Bb]ride
[(Bb)]Now searching for a p[Cm]lace to h[Gm]ide
[(Gm)]Still sees tr[G]uth quite [Eb]easi[Bb]ly
[(Bb)]Shrouds all else in [Cm]myst[Gm]ery
While m[Cm]admen [Eb7] in top [Gm] hats and tails
[Cm] Impale thems[Eb7]elves on [Gm] six inch nails
And s[Bb]ome Ar[Gm]abian [Cm]also-[Gm]ran
[Bb] Imperson[Gm]ates a w[Cm]atering [Gm]can
(repeat intro w/full band after each verse)
Verse 2:
Some Santa Claus-like face of note
Entreats my ears to set afloat
My feeble, sick, and weary brain
And I am overcome with shame
And hide inside my overcoat
And hurriedly begin to quote
And some Arabian sheik most grand
Impersonates a hot dog stand
Instrumental break:
(guitar solo over verse chords)
Verse 3:
Red Cross ambulance outside
Could only mean that I must hide
'Til dusk and finally the night
When I will make a hasty flight
Across the sea and far away
To where the weary exiles stay
And some Arabian oil well
Impersonates a padded cell
And s[Bb]ome A[Gm]rabian [Cm]oil w[Gm]ell
[Bb] Imperson[Gm]ates a [Cm]padded c[Gm]ell
(repeat intro; end cold on last Gm of 2nd repeat)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
