Verse 1
Am
It was late in a Lebanese restaurant, in the heat of a Lebanese night,
There was dancing, people were singing, she came in from the garden outside,
	       G                    Am
And in her eyes I saw the stars, 
F     				    Am
And I felt something happen in my heart

Verse 2
Am
Then I knew I was going to meet her in the heat of a Lebanese night,
And the girl inside the woman, who came over to sit by my side,
   G				Am
And when she smiled, the whole world stopped,
F 				     G
It was then I heard the echoes of a child

Chorus

G  	        C	      G	            Dm
And did you go to your bed with a sweet lullaby, 
   C		   Am	           G
And the sound of the guns in the night, 
G		C		G 	   	  Dm
And did you dance in the fields, did you run for your life,
    C		       Am 		G
From the hell that came down from the sky? 
Am
On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night

Verse 3
Am
We went down to the edge of the water, by the light of a Lebanese dawn,
And she told me all the stories of her beautiful land in the war,
G			  Am
Her tears fell down, the sun came up, 
F					G
And I saw again the young girl in her eyes


Chorus

G  	        C	      G		    Dm
And did you go to your bed with a sweet lullaby, 
   C		   Am	           G
And the sound of the guns in the night, 
G		C		G 		  Dm
And did you dance in the fields, did you run for your life,
    C		       Am 		G
From the hell that came down from the sky? 
Am
On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night

Bridge
              Am	      G
All of my life, all I have known, 
          Dm 				Am
only a place where peace cannot go
		Am 			G
All over the world, the gift from before, 
      Dm			 Am
nothing is left for the children of war

Chorus
