Year Of The Cat  Al Stewart

.[Intro: Cmaj7/D/Em <3 times> Am7/D7]                    
On a [Cmaj7]morning from a [Bm]Bogart mo[Em]vie
in a [Cmaj7]country where they [Bm]turned back tim[Em]e
you go [Cmaj7]strolling through the c[Bm]rowd like [Em]
Peter Lorre contempl[Am7]ating a crime. [D7]
She comes [Cmaj7]out of the s[Bm]un in a silk[Em] dress
running like a [B]water color in the [C]rain.
Don't bother [B]asking for[Em] explanations.
She'll just [Am7]tell you that she came [D] in the Year of the Cat.

.[Instrument: Cmaj7/D/Em <3 times> Am7/D7]
She [Cmaj7]doesn't give you [Bm]time for ques[Em]tions
as she [Cmaj7]locks up you [Bm]arm in hers.[Em]
And you [Cmaj7]follow 'til your [Bm]sense of [Em]
which direction com[Am7]pletely disappears. [D7]
By the [Cmaj7]blue-tiled w[Bm]alls near the [Em]market stalls
there's a [B]hidden door she leads you [C]to.
"These days," she [B]says, "I[Em] feel my life just
like a [Am7]river running through [D] in the Year of the Cat.

.[Instrument: Cmaj7/D/Em <3 times> Am7/D]
Well she [B]looks at you so co[C]oly
and her [G]eyes shine like the [D]moon in the sea.
She comes in [B]incense and pathch[C]ouli
so you [G]take her to [F]find what's
[C/E]waiting inside [D]in the Year of the Cat.
.[Instrument: Cmaj7/D/Em <3 times> Am7/D7]
Well [Cmaj7]morning comes and[Bm] you're still with[Em] her
and the [Cmaj7]bus and the tou[Bm]rists are [Em]gone.
And you've t[Cmaj7]hrown away your ch[Bm]oice and  [Em]
lost your ticket so you [Am7]have to stay on. [D7]
But the d[Cmaj7]rumbeat strain[Bm]s of the night [Em]
remain in the [B]rhythm of the newborn [C]day.
You know somet[B]ime you're[Em] bound to leave her
but for [Am7]now you're gonna stay [D] in the Year of the Cat.
.[Instrument: Cmaj7/D/Em <3 times> Am7/D7...till fade]
