Yusuf / Cat Stevens - I Was Raised In Babylon

Prote, Fibonacci


Strum, Pick, Flick Or Kick!


[Verse 1]
E
  I was raised in Babylon

  Our priests taught us how to worship the sun


[Chorus]
     A                 E
  Wo! Where did we go wrong?
B                         A                              E
  They used to call us civilised – but those days are gone


[Verse 2]
E
  I came to guard the Pharaoh
E
  Bring him wine and women


[Chorus]
     A                  E
  Oh Lord! Where is he now?
B                            D                              E
  We used call him the highest – till the wave took him down


[Link]
 E A E  G A E


[Verse 3]
E
  I was born in the Holy Land
E
  They told me it was by God's command


[Chorus]

    A D A                      E
  Wo!    Where are the others from?
B                              D                       E
  I thought that we were the chosen – I must've been wrong


[Verse 4]
  I loved to march with the Sultan
E
  And his diamond turban


[Chorus]
     A                            E
  Oh Lord! Then the world took hold
B                  D                               E
  Let go of the rope of God – for a handful of gold


[Link]
 G A E


[Verse 5]
E
  I used to serve the Empire
E
  On which the sun set, never


[Chorus]
      A                 E
  Oh! Now times have turned
B                                         D
  We thought our white skins would save us –
 D                   E
  Then we got burned
