8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
O -ver the des -ert wild and free,
Rides the bold Sheik of Ar -a -by.
His A -rab band At his com -mand,
Fol -low his love's car -a -van.
Un -der the shad -ow of the palms;
He sings to call her to his arms.
"I'm the Sheik of Ar -a -by,
Your love be -longs to me.
At night when you're a -sleep,
In -to your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine a -bove
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Ar -a -by."
