Lyrics
Timbuktu---words and music by Gordon McLeod copyright 2003, 2004
Verse 1
Starlight gleaming, moonlight streaming, desert sky and evening’s sweet taboo.
Ancient longings, no belongings, I’ll return again to Timbuktu.

Verse 2
I remember, slow and tender, sad Mandingo queen of midnight blue.
Stolen mornings, unheard warnings, I was born again in Timbuktu.

Bridge:
Ah, the sweetness of my bitter tears,
Wakes my heart with Deja Vu.
Softly in the night her voice I hear
Calling me to Timbuktu.

Verse 3
Subtle danger, to a stranger, in a foreign land of brown and blue
Restless lover, took another, stole my heart away in Timbuktu.


Instrumental interlude over verse chords

Bridge:
Ah, the sweetness of my bitter tears,
Wakes my heart with Deja Vu.
Softly in the night her voice I hear
Calling me to Timbuktu

Verse 4
Starlight gleaming, moonlight streaming, desert sky and evening’s sweet taboo.
Ancient longings, no belongings, I’ll return again to Timbuktu.
