Marrakesh Express    (video)    (midi)

 

    G - Dm  - G - Dm

 

   G                                                      Dm

1.    Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes,

G                                             Dm

    travelling the train through clear Moroccan skies.

      Em                                                 A

    Ducks and pigs and chickens call, animal carpet wall to wall,

          C                                            D

    American ladies five-foot tall in blue.

 

   G                                                Dm

2.     Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind,

G                                Dm

    had to get away to see what we could find.

     Em                                           A

    Hope the days that lie ahead bring us back to where they've led,

    C                                                  D

    listen not to what's been said to you.

 

C                                          G                   Am                  G

    Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express ?

C                                          G                   Em                   A

    Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express ?

                         C         D      G

They’re taking me to Marrakesh.

 

               G             C - G             G             C - G

+  All aboard the trai......n, all aboard the trai.....n.

Bm                                       G

    I've been saving all my money just to take you there,

E                                             C

    I smell the garden in your hair.

 

   G                                           Dm

3.     Take the train from Casablanca going south,

G                                                 Dm

    blowing smoke rings from the corners of my mouth.

      Em                                                  A

     Coloured cottons hang in the air, charming cobras in the square,

        C                                               D

    striped djellebas we can wear at home, well, let me hear you now.
