One of my favourite songs of all time! Here is my version, because i think the 1st tab is lacking some chords. Have fun! Intro: F Dm F Gm C Dm F Here I sleep the morning through Dm 'Til the wail of the call to prayer awakes me F And there ain't nothing at all to do but rise and follow Gm The day wherever it takes me C I stand at the window and I look at the sea Dm And I am what I am, and what will be will be C I stand at the window and I look at the sea Dm And I make me a pot of opium tea F Dm (the song goes on as in the 1st verse) Down at the port I watch the boats come in Watch the boats come in can do something to you And the kids gather around with an outstretched hand And I toss them a dirham or two Well, I wonder if my children are thinking of me Cause I am what I am, and what will be will be I wonder if my kids are thinking of me And I smile and I sip my opium tea At night the sea lashes the rust red ramparts And the shapes of hooded men who pass me And the moan of the wind laughs and laughs and laughs The strange luck that fate has cast me Well, the cats on the rampart sing merrily That he is what he is and what will be will be Yeah, the cats on the rampart sing merrily And I sit and I drink of my opium tea I'm a prisoner here, I can never go home There is nothing here to win or lose There are no choices needed to be made at all Not even the choice of having to choose Well, I'm a prisoner here, yes, but I'm also free Cause I am what I am and what will be will be I'm a prisoner here, yeah, but I'm also free And I smile and I sip my opium tea.
