Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds Opium Tea chords version 1
This is a simple and groovy song. Here's how I play it. F Dm(pause) FHere I sleep the morning throughDm'Til the wail of the call to prayer awakes meFAnd there ain't nothing at all to do but rise and followDmThe day wherever it takes meFI stand at the window and I look at the seaDmAnd I am what I am, and what will be will beFI stand at the window and I look at the seaDmAnd I make me a pot of opium tea( p a u s e ) F Down at the port I watch the boats come inDmWatch the boats come in can do something to youFAnd the kids gather around with an outstretched handDmAnd I toss them a dirham or twoFWell, I wonder if my children are thinking of meDmCause I am what I am, and what will be will beFI wonder if my kids are thinking of meDmAnd I smile and I sip my opium tea(pause) FAt night the sea lashes the rust red rampartsDmAnd the shapes of hooded men who pass meFAnd the moan of the wind laughs and laughs and laughsDmThe strange luck that fate has cast meFWell, the cats on the rampart sing merrilyDmThat he is what he is and what will be will beFYeah, the cats on the rampart sing merrilyDmAnd I sit and I drink of my opium teaFI'm a prisoner here, I can never go homeDmThere is nothing here to win or loseFThere are no choices needed to be made at allDmNot even the choice of having to chooseFWell, I'm a prisoner here, yes, but I'm also freeDmCause I am what I am and what will be will beFI'm a prisoner here, yeah, but I'm also freeDmAnd I smile and I sip my opium tea.Someone should figure out the melody bit, the part the organ plays after the choruses. Figure it out then post it, that'd be nifty.
