But the Bedouin, they brought out the electric camel drum.
    D                           Am
The local guitar picker got his guitar picking thumb.
   Bm                      Bm
As soon as the Shareef had cleared the square,
G                    G
They began to wail-a-ail-ail!     (Ohhh!!!)

Chorus:

    Bm                       Bm
The in crowd say, "It's cool,
            D                Am
to dig this chanting thing!"
           Bm                    Bm
But as the wind changed direction
        D                     Am
and the temple band took five
    Bm                Bm
The crowd got a whiff
        G            G
of that crazy Casbah jive!!!

Chorus (Same as previous)

Verse 4:
    Bm                              Bm

          D                              Am
He said, "You better earn your pay - ay. 
     Bm                                  Bm    
Drop your bombs down between the Minarets,
         D                   Am
down the Casbah way - yay."
   Bm                      Bm
As soon as the Shareef was chauffeured out of there,
    D                       Am
the jet pilots tuned to the cockpit radio blare.
   Bm                      Bm
As soon as the Shareef was outta their hair,
    G                 G
The jet pilots wail – ail - ailed.   (Ahhh!!!)

Outro Chorus:
Am                     Bm   D6          
Shareef don't like it!              
Bm       G       Bm       Bm   
Rock the Casbah! Rock the Casbah!

Bm       G       Bm       Bm  
Rock the Casbah! Rock the Casbah!
Am                         Bm             D6
Shareef don't like it! You know he really hates it!
Bm       G       Bm       Bm  
Rock the Casbah! Rock the Casbah!

(then, repeat following to fade...)
Am                      Bm     D6
Shareef don't like it! 
Bm       G       Bm       Bm

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.
