Katmandu - Cat Stevens
From "Mona Bone Jakon"
Transcribed and tabbed by Wolfgang Hammer

Use Capo on 3rd fret.
The measure changes throughout the song, so I did not place
bars. The dots on top of the lines represent eighth-notes.

KATMANDU- Cat Stevens
[D] [C] [D] [C] [D] [C] [D] [C]  
[D]I sit be[C]side the dark[D]
Beneath the mir[F]e
C[C]old grey du[G]sty day
D/A A A (strum) C G D
The morning lake drinks up the sky
CHORUS #1:
RIFF 1 C G C G D
Katmandu, I'll soon be seeing you
And your st[F]range, bewil[G]dering t[C]ime
F G RIFF 2 C/G B/G RIFF 3
Will hold me down
[D] [C] [D] [C] [D] [C] [D] [C]  
Chop me some broken wood
We'll start a fire
White, warm, light the dawn
And help me see, oh Satan's tree
CHORUS #2:
Katmandu, I'll soon be seeing you
And your strange, bewildering time
Will hold me down
Pass me my hat and coat
Lock up the cabin
Slow night, treat me right
Until I go, be nice to know
CHORUS #3:
Katmandu, I'll soon be seeing you
And your strange, bewildering time
Will keep me home
