Cleopatra

	  		
Intro: Ab  


Verse 1 

Ab 
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress 
                                               Eb 
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand 
Ab 
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress 
                                       Eb       Ab 
With my father in a casket, I had no plans 


Verse 2 

Ab                               C#                   Ab 
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet 
                                                 Eb 
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town 
Ab                                  C#                Ab 
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant 
                                                          Eb 
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around

Verse 3 Ab C# Ab While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me Eb Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true Ab C# Ab So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me C# Ab Eb From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

Bridge Ab C# Eb Ab And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce Ab C# Eb Ab But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part Verse 4 Ab C# Ab I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters Eb But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind Ab C# Ab Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom C# Ab It's a bed and a bathroom Eb and a place for the end
tabchorus
C5 Ab C# Ab C# Ab Eb But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life C5 Ab C# Ab C# Ab Eb And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time
