The Middle East


This is a very, very slack tab.
Most of the chord names will be wrong and there is no rhythm in the tab. I’m pretty sure 
a good enough guideline though.

You repeat all that for the verse. Here’s the chords…


C*       G/C*      Am         Em     C*
Older brother, restless soul, lie down.
Lie for a while with your ear against the earth.
You can hear your sister sleeptalking,
Say ‘you’re hair is long but not long enough to reach
                 G
Home to me’
                 C*
But your beard
                             G
Someday might be.
                   Em7                Cadd9                     G
And she’ll wake up in a cold sweat on the floor
Next to a family portrait drawn when you were four
And beside a jar of two cent coints that are no good no more
She’ll lay it aside

Again it's not perfect, but I hope it's saved you from fiddling around with different 
this and turn it into a REAL tab, then that'd be great.
