It had [C]something to do with the rai[F]n
[F]leeching [C]loamy dir[G]t
and the [C]way the back lane came al[F]ive
[F]half moon [C]whispered "go[G]"
for a [F]while I [G]heard you missing[C] steps in the [F]street
and your [F]anger [G]pleading in an[C] uncertain [F]key
[F]singing the sound of you that you [C]found for me[F]
When th[C]e winter took the tips of my [F]ears
F (2 fr.) C (2 fr.) G (2 fr.)
found this noisy home
full of [C]pigeons and places to hid[F]e
F (2 fr.) C (2 fr.) G (2 fr.)
and when the voices die
I eme[C]rged to watched abandoned [F]machines
F (2 fr.) C (2 fr.) G (2 fr.)
waiting for their men
to re[C]turn, I remember the way[F]
F (2 fr.) C (2 fr.) G (2 fr.)
I would wait for you
to arr[F]ive with [G]kibble and a [C]box full of [F]beer
how I'd [F]scratch the [G]empties [C]desperate to [F]hear
F// // F (2 fr.)
you make the sound that you found for me
F (2 fr.) ////// C (2 fr.) ////// G (2 fr.) ////// Am(II) //////
(This is played for the next stanza as well)
After scr*pping with the ferals and the tabby
let you brush my matted fur
how I'd knead into your chest while you were sleeping
shallow breathing made me purr
But [F]I can't reme[C]mber the so[G]und that you [Am]found for me
[F]I can't reme[C]mber the sou[G]nd that you [Am]found for me
[F]I can't reme[C]mber the sou[G]nd[Am]
