Gulf Of Araby by Natalie Merchant

Chords with lyrics

Song: The Gulf of Araby
Artist: Natalie Merchant
Transcriber's Name: Rowena Regala

This song was originally performed and written by Katell Keineg, and became
quite popular in 1999 by Natalie Merchant, for her "Live in Concert NYC"
album. If you are interested more on Keineg's work, please refer to website:

And if your curious which album this great song came from, it is as follows:

Album Title: ô Seasons ô Castles
Record Label: Elektra
Catalog #: 61657
Year: 1994
Track #: 14
Other Info: debut album in the US

All my efforts to learn this song came from listening to Miss Merchant's
live album. Gabriel Gordon's guitar style is superb, and worth recognition.
He did not use any capo, and began the song with the simple tab below. It
took me a while to get this tune right, so if you feel it isn't please
provide as much criticism as possible. I'm open for open discussion. My
