***GIRL FROM THE WADI HAMMAMAT - by Andrew Rankin and Jem Finer
from the album "Waiting For Herb"
Ok, This is as close as I can figure... If anyone else wants to take a shot
and correct or completely tab or redo, be my guest!
Girl From The Wadi Hammamat - as perfomed by The Pogues
Fade in on B
Em Em C repeatedly
[Em]Sometimes it [C]seems like a [Em]beautiful [C]dream
The [Em]girl from the [C]Wadi [Em]Hammamat[C]
[Em]Lovely as a [C]green para[B]ke[B]et[C]
[B] [B] [C]  
[Em] I a[C]wake a[Em]lone a[C]gain
[Em] In the [C]desert of my [Em]dreams[C]
A [Em]fertile [C]oasis I have [B]se[B]en[C]
[B] [B] [C]  
[Em] I cast [C]my [Em]voice to t[C]he b[Em]urning[C] w[Em]inds[C]
[Em]Across t[C]he du[Em]nes Kha[C]msin K[Em]hams[C]in[Em]
[Em]Bring [C]her t[Em]o me on de[C]si[Em]re'[C]s win[Em]gs[C]
[Em]On the b[C]urning desert wind[B] [B] [C]
[B] [B] [C]  
Arabic riff.... A B-scale? Too tough for me to tab out :p
She means the world to me
In a single grain of sand
Bring a camel to this man
Perched on a bough her tresses hang down
The girl from the Wadi Hammamat
She is as sweet as a green parakeet
Sometimes it seems like a beautiful dream
The girl from the Wadi Hammamat
