This is a simple and groovy song. Here's how I play it.





C    Am

(pause)                 C
Here I sleep the morning through
                                Am
'Til the wail of the call to prayer awakes me
                                   C
And there ain't nothing at all to do but rise and follow
                    Am
The day wherever it takes me

C
I stand at the window and I look at the sea
Am
And I am what I am, and what will be will be
C
I stand at the window and I look at the sea
Am
And I make me a pot of opium tea

(    p a u s e  )    F
Down at the port I watch the boats come in
                              Am
Watch the boats come in can do something to you
                            C
And the kids gather around with an outstretched hand
                  Am
And I toss them a dirham or two

C
Well, I wonder if my children are thinking of me
Am
Cause I am what I am, and what will be will be
C
I wonder if my kids are thinking of me
Am
And I smile and I sip my opium tea


(pause)              C
At night the sea lashes the rust red ramparts
                          Am
And the shapes of hooded men who pass me
                          C
And the moan of the wind laughs and laughs and laughs
                          Am
The strange luck that fate has cast me


C
Well, the cats on the rampart sing merrily
Am
That he is what he is and what will be will be
C
Yeah, the cats on the rampart sing merrily
Am
And I sit and I drink of my opium tea


                               C
I'm a prisoner here, I can never go home
                           Am
There is nothing here to win or lose
                   C
There are no choices needed to be made at all
                                    Am
Not even the choice of having to choose

C
Well, I'm a prisoner here, yes, but I'm also free
Am
Cause I am what I am and what will be will be
C
I'm a prisoner here, yeah, but I'm also free
Am
And I smile and I sip my opium tea.




Someone should figure out the melody bit, the part the organ plays after the choruses. 
Figure it out then post it, that'd be nifty.
