Turkish Song of the Damned  The Pogues

***Turkish Song Of The Damned - by Shane MacGowan and Jem Finer
from the album "If I Should Fall From Grace With God"
Turkish Song Of The Damned - as perfomed by The Pogues
{The tab is a little short on space for all the fast notes -- suffice it
to say that 23232 means a trill with hammer-ons and pull-offs, not a note
played at the 23,232th fret.}

I [Am] come old friend from hell tonight across the rotting sea.
Nor the [Am] nails of the cross nor the blood of Christ
Can bring you help this eve.
The [Dm] dead have come to claim a debt from [Am] thee.
They [Dm] stand outside your door four score and [Am] three. [G]
Did you [C] keep a watch for the [F] dead man's wind,
Did you [C] see the woman with the [G] comb in her hand,
[C] Wailing away on the [F] wall on the strand
As you [C] danced to the Turkish [G] song of the damned.
[Am] [Am] [Dm] 
You re[Am]member when the ship went down, you left me on the deck.
The [Am] captain's corpse jumped up and threw his arms around my neck.
For [Dm] all these years I've had him on my [Am] back.
This [Dm] debt cannot be paid with all your [Am] jack. [G]
Chorus Twice
[Am] [Am] [Dm] 
Repeat Intro Riff
And [Am] as I sit and talk to you I see your face go white.
This [Am] shadow hanging over me is no trick of the light.
The [Dm] spectre on my back will soon be [Am] free.
The [Dm] dead have come to claim a debt from [Am] thee. [G]
Chorus Thrice
Whistle Solo Over Chorus Twice
Final Riff Seven Times
