Am                         |Em                     |
Sheik he drove his Cadillac,              he went a      
G                          |Dm                     |

[Chorus]
Dm                    |Am          G6          |
Shareef don't like it!               (clap,clap)
Em          F         |Em          Am          |  
Rock   the  Casbah!    Rockin'  the  Casbah!
Dm                    |Am          G6          |
Shareef don't like it!               (clap,clap)
Em          F         |Em          Am          |  
Rock   the  Casbah!    Rockin'   the  Casbah!


[Verse]
   Am                         Em
By order of the prophet,
    G                         Dm
"We ban that boogie sound!         (clap,clap) 
  Am                          Em
Degenerate the faithful
          G                   Dm 
with that crazy Casbah sound."     (clap,clap)
        Am                            Em
But the Bedouin, they brought out the electric camel drum.
    G                           Dm
The local guitar picker got his guitar picking thumb.
   Am                      Em
As soon as the Shareef had cleared the square,
F                    F
They began to wail-a-ail-ail!     (Ohhh!!!)


[Chorus]
Dm                     Am   G6          
Shareef don't like it!              
Em       F       Em       Am   
Rock the Casbah! Rockin' the Casbah!
Dm                     Am   G6
Shareef don't like it! 
Em       F       Em       Am  
Rock the Casbah! Rockin' the Casbah!


[Verse]
    Am                 Em
Now over at the temple
         G                   Dm
Oh, they really pack em in.
    Am                       Em
The in crowd say, "It's cool,
            G                Dm
to dig this chanting thing!"
           Am                    Em
But as the wind changed direction
        G                     Dm
and the temple band took five
    Am                Em
The crowd got a whiff
        F            F
of that crazy Casbah jive!!!


Chorus (Same as previous)


[Verse]
    Am                              Em
The King called up his jet fighters,
          G                              Dm
He said, "You better earn your pay - ay. 
     Am                                  Em    
Drop your bombs down between the Minarets,
         G                   Dm
down the Casbah way - yay."
   Am                      Em
As soon as the Shareef was chauffeured out of there,
    G                       Dm
the jet pilots tuned to the cockpit radio blare.
   Am                      Em
As soon as the Shareef was outta their hair,
    F                 F
The jet pilots wail – ail - ailed.   (Ahhh!!!)


Outro Chorus:
Dm                     Am   G6          
Shareef don't like it!              
Em       F       Em       Am   
Rock the Casbah! Rockin' the Casbah!
(repeat, then...)

Dm                        Am              G6
Shareef don't like it! He thinks it's not kosher!
Em       F       Em       Am  
Rock the Casbah! Rockin' the Casbah!
Dm                          Am                G6
Shareef don't like it! Fundamentally he can't take it!
Em       F       Em       Am  
Rock the Casbah! Rockin' the Casbah!
Dm                         Am             G6
Shareef don't like it! You know he really hates it!
Em       F       Em       Am  
Rock the Casbah! Rockin' the Casbah!

(then, repeat following to fade...)
Dm                      Am     G6
Shareef don't like it! 
Em       F       Em       Am

Note: This is a very simplified version, but it works to get the gist 
of the song down. And, it is complete. I fought with a previous guy's
tab, and after taking out all the 7ths and working out the details 
(G6, outro, etc), I figured I should share. On my acoustic, it sounds
pretty cool – much improved to me anyways. I hope you find it useful,
and comments to perfect/correct are welcome.
