C C/G C C/G
O the minarets of Constantinople
Am Am/E Am Am/E
Are plated gold, ivory, and opal
F F/C F F/C G G G G
Their cupolas all onion domed and light.

C C/G C C/G
And the magistrate of Constantinople
Am Am/E Am Am/E
Has made a match; his family was hopeful
F F/C F F/C G G G G
Their daughter would be promised a wedding night.

F G
But the Sultan's weary bride, she won't be wed tonight
C C/B C/A C/G Am Am/E Am Am/E
Nor fall beneath a canopy to lie
F F/C F F/C G G G G
For far across the town, her lover now is drowned
C C/B C/A C/G Am Am/E Am Am/E
And painted by the Bosporus in blue
F F/C F F/C G G G G
And there's nothing for a broken heart to do.

C C/G C C/G
Down the dirty streets of Constantinople
Am Am/E Am Am/E
The beggars weep, their hands all wide open
F F/C F F/C G G G G
Their severed leper limbs all swing and sway.

C C/G C C/G
At a windowsill in Constantinople
Am Am/E Am Am/E
Our Hero sighs to melodies noteful
F F/C F F/C G G G G
And gazes on the walls that hold his love.

F G
But the Sultan's weary bride, she won't be wed tonight
C C/B C/A C/G Am Am/E Am Am/E
Nor fall beneath a canopy to lie
F F/C F F/C G G G G
For far across the town, her lover now is drowned
C C/B C/A C/G Am Am/E Am Am/E
And painted by the Bosporus in blue
F F/C F F/C G G G G
And there's nothing for a broken heart to do.
F F/C F F/C G G G G
No, there's nothing for a broken heart to do.
C C/B C/A C/G Am Am/E Am Am/E F F/C F F/C G G G G
Except cry.

End with  G G G7 C
