     (verse one)
   Dm           Am                          Dm         C     F
   Scheherazade packed up the car, made her way to New Mexico
     Dm                   Am         Bb         Dm           C              F
   A clarinet case on her lap, and a map with a scribbled address where to go
            F                         Bb       Bbmaj7           F        D             Gm   A
   I first saw her in the lobby of a motel in St. Louis, she was shaking a vending machine
                Dm                           Bb
   She said, "I told that old innkeeper I'm a pretty light sleeper
    Dm              C       Dm       C      F
   Still my window is facing the street, mmmhhhhh...
                Em            Am                         Bb  Bbmaj7  Bb
   So let's get out of here, you and I could make our escape
            F         Dm               Gm                               Asus4  A
   Come on, buy me a drink before you have a chance to think it's a mistake"


     (chorus)
            D             A                A              D
   And the moon was half perfect, and the bar was half asleep
              D            A
   Her every sigh was a sirocco

   Sweeping the bottles on the floor like tumbleweeds

   I got his wallet, got his car and yeah, I've made it pretty far without ever looking behind me
              Dm                               Bb
   I got the police on my trail, won't be the first I've seen a jail"
          Dm                   C         Dm    C     F   
   I said, "girl, I think you lie to your diary", mmmhhhh....
           Am               Dm                          Cm              
   Scheherazade, she said, "Tell me, does it matter to you
       Gm             F            E          A
   If nothing of the story but the moral is true?"


     (chorus)

   And the night, and the night, and the night is always older than it seems


     (verse three)
                   Dm                        Am                 Dm           C              F
   She said, "I'll sing you to sleep if you promise to keep your back to me all through the night"
           Dm                                 Am            Bb
   In the morning she was gone, probably still had my jacket on
                 Dm             C              F
   But it ain't cold now, so I guess it's all right

   It's useless to think, even more so to speak of the part I may play in her fables
