"Moon Over Bourbon Street"
 Sting

   |:       F#m7-5     B7                Em
1. Theres a moon over  Bourbon Street    tonight

2. It was   many years ago that I became what I am

         F#m7-5          B7               Em
1. I see faces as they   pass beneath the pale lamp light

2. I was trapped in this life like an     innocent lamb

           C             B7          Em
1. I've no choice but to follow that call
2. now I   never show my face at     noon

       C#dim              F#7             C            B7
1. the bright lights, the people, and the moon and     all
2. and you'll only see me walking  by the light of the moon

       F#m7-5       B7            Em
1.     I pray every day to be     strong
2. the brim of my   hat hides the eye of a beast

            F#m7-5      B7             Em
1. for I    know what I do must be     wrong
2. I've the face of a   sinner but the hands of a priest


          C            B/F#              Em
Oh you'll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet

                C         B7      Em    :|
while there's a moon over Bourbon Street

   In the above chords, if you are having difficulty, in the F#m7-5
drop the
F# bass note and use the open A string. The C#dim you can also drop
C# bass
note. The Em and C are just regular "open" position chords.
   The song appears on the Sting album "dream of the blue turtles".
If you
get the song try working out the bass line and play it along with the
chords.


                                      Have Fun !
