This is a great song by a great Canadian band.

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
found this noisy home
full of [C]pigeons and places to hid[F]e
and when the voices die
I eme[C]rged to watched abandoned [F]machines
waiting for their men
to re[C]turn, I remember the way[F]
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(II)
you make the sound that you found for me
F(II) ////// C(II) ////// G(II) ////// Am(II) //////
(This is played for the next stanza as well)
After scrapping 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]
