Subject: CRD: 'Tea in the Sahara' by The Police
Here is a cool song that I play with an acoustic guitar. It sounds pretty
good. I listenen to it off the Police box set. The recorded song only has
bass guitar, but it still sounds alike.
[(Am)]My sisters and I
[(C)]Have one wish before we die
[(G)]And it may sound strange
[(Em)]As if our minds are deranged
Please don't ask why
Under the sheltering sky
We have this strange obsession
You have the means in your possession
CHORUS 1: (CHORUS 2 repeats these lines 4 times instead of two)
[(G)]Tea in the Sahara, [(Cadd9)]with you
[(G)]Tea in the Sahara, [(Cadd9)]with you
A young man agreed
He would satisfy their needs
So they danced for his pleasure
With a joy you could not measure
They'd wait for him here
The same place every year
Beneath the sheltering sky
Across the desert he would fly
The sky turned to black
Would he ever come back
They would climb a high dune
They would pray to the moon
But he never returned
So the sisters would burn
As their eyes searched the night
With their cups still full of sand
