The Year Of The Cat

	  INTRO 
 
Cmaj7  D6  Em  Cmaj7  D6  Em Cmaj7  D6  Em  A   D7sus   
Cmaj7  D6  Em  Cmaj7  D6  Em Cmaj7  D6  Em  A   D7sus 
Gmaj7  Cmaj7   Gmaj7   Cmaj7  Emaj7  Am7 D7 
Cmaj7  D6  Em  3x  Am7 D7  
 
          
(VERSE) 
 
     Cmaj7          Bm     Em 
On a morning from a Bogart movie 
     Cmaj7              Bm          Em 
In a country where they turned back time 
       Cmaj7                 Bm        
You go strolling through the crowd like 
Em                Am              D7 
Peter Lorre contemplating a crime 
  
          C          Bm7      Em 
She comes out of the sun in a silk dress 
               B                   C 
Running like a water colour in the rain 
             B7         Em 
Don't bother asking for explanations 
            Am7                    D7 
She'll just tell you that she came  
Cmaj7 D6 Em Cmaj7 D6 Em Cmaj7 D6 Em   Am7 D7 
In the Year of the Cat... 
 
(VERSE) 
 
    Cmaj7            Bm       Em 
She doesn't give you time for questions 
       Cmaj7         Bm     Em 
As she locks up your arm in hers 
        Cmaj7            Bm        
And you follow 'til your sense of 
 Em                 Am7           D7 
Which direction completely disappears 
 
 
       C          Bm7            Em 
By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls 
          B                         C 
There's a hidden door she leads you to 
       B7                  Em          
"These days," she says, "I feel my life just 
       Am7                   D7 
Like a river running through 
Cmaj7 D6 Em Cmaj7 D6 Em Cmaj7 D6 Em Am D7  
The Year of the Cat... 
 
 
(BRIDGE) 
 
         B               C 
Well she looks at you so cooly 
        G                   D 
And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea 
             B               C 
She comes in incense and pathchouli 
       G           F6          C/E       D 
So you take her to find what's waiting inside 
                 Cmaj7 D6 Em 3x Am D7  
The Year of the Cat... 
 
 
(ACOUSTIC BREAK)  (SEE BELOW) 
 
Cmaj7  D6  Em 3x   Am7  D7  
 
Gmaj7  Cmaj7  Gmaj7  Cmaj7  Emaj7  Am7 D 
  
  
 
(LEAD) (SEE BELOW) 
 
D D D  Gmaj7  D  Gmaj7  Bm  B/D#  C/E  A7/E 
 
 
 
(VERSE) 
 
     Cmaj7             Bm           Em 
Well morning comes and you're still with her 
        Cmaj7       Bm7          Em 
And the bus and the tourists are gone 
           Cmaj7            Bm         
And you've thrown away your choice and 
Em                      Am              D7 
Lost your ticket so you have to stay on 
 
        C        Bm             Em 
But the drumbeat strains of the night remain 
       B                     C 
In the rhythm of the newborn day 
             B7          Em         
You know sometime you're bound to leave her 
        Am7                   D6 
But for now you're gonna stay   
                     Cmaj7 D6 Em 3x Am D7  repeat twice 
In the Year of the Cat...
