Hey guys, I'm doing this song acoustically, so here's my cheat sheet.  The chords came 
from the Hal Leonard Book.  This should get you through it.

Desert Rose by Sting

Cm
I dream of rain
Bb
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
Ab
I wake in pain
Fm7			G7sus4
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Cm
I dream of fire
These dreams that are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
The shadows play in the shape of a mans desire

Eb
This desert rose
Gm7
Each of her veils, a secret promise
Bb
This desert flower
Fm7/Ab			G7sus4
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Cm
And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothings as it seems

Cm
I dream of rain
Bb
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
Ab
I wake in pain
Fm7			G7sus4
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Eb
I dream of rain
Gm7
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
Bb
I close my eyes
Fm7/Ab			G7sus4
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

Cm (Solo sect.)

Cm
I dream of rain
Bb
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
Ab
I wake in pain
Fm7			G7sus4
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Eb
Sweet desert rose
Gm7
Each of her veils, a secret promise
Bb
This desert flower
Fm7/Ab					Fm7
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Eb
Sweet desert rose
Gm7
This memory of Eden haunts us all
Bb
This desert flower, This rare perfume
Fm7/Ab			G7sus4
is the sweet intoxication of the fall…

Cm (OUTRO)

Absolutely fantastic tab to an amazing song. I never knew this song would chord up so well. Could you do more Sting songs? This one rocks.
