C   G     F


Verse 1:
Am                                Dm
I could tell you stories like the government tells lies
Am                        F
Oh but no one listens any more
       Am
In the rooms the women come and go
Dm
Talking on the mobile phones
        C          G             F
and the television talks about the war


Verse 2:
Am
When I was a baby there was
Dm
Laughter in my house and my
Am                     F
Daddy smoked domestic cigarettes
Am
Thursday nights on the radio
Dm                          C
Live in concert, live from Cairo
G         F
Mother of Egypt


Chorus 1:

Am     G
Mama, mama
F     G
Be with me
           F            Am
With the music in your breast
          F               Am
In your glittering evening dress
          F                C        G
And the white flag in your fist trembling


Am   Dm   F   Am
C   G    F

Verse 3:
Am                                Dm
I could tell you stories like the past was dead and gone
Am                              F
I know nothing changes in this world
Am
Every day the muezzin calls
Dm                        C
Sun comes up and Baghdad falls
          G                    F
Before the eyes of storytelling girls


Bridge:
Am              Dm
She was just a poor man's daughter
C               G             F
Going down into the sultan's bed
Am             Dm
He was desert, she was a water
     C             G            F
And he remembered every word she said
F
She said and I say


Chorus 2:
Am        G
Grandma, Grandma
F    G
Be with me
         F                 Am
In your tragic wedding gown
          F             Am
With your long hair hanging down
          F               C
And the stories tumbling out
     G
Tumbling


Am  Dm   F    Am
C    G    F

Am                                Dm
I could tell you stories like the government tells lies
Am                        F
Oh, but no one listens any more
       Am                       
In the rooms the women come and go
Dm
Talking on the mobile phones
         C               G                   F
And the television talks about the war
