Verse

     CM7            Bm     Em
On a morning from a Bogart movie,
     CM7                Bm          Em
in a country where they turned back time
       CM7                   Bm         Em
you go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
      Am7             D7  
contemplating a crime.
    CM7              Bm       Em                                 
She comes out of the sun in a silk dress
               B7                 C     
running like a water color in the rain.
             B7         Em                                 
Don't bother asking for explanations.
            Am7                    D
She'll just tell you that she came
                   CM7(no5) D6add9/F#  E(no3)[3x]  Am7 Am7addG D7 D7sus4
in the Year of the Cat.

    CM7              Bm       Em                       
She doesn't give you time for questions
       CM7           Bm     Em
as she locks up your arm in hers.
        CM7              Bm       Em                          
And you follow 'til your sense of which direction
   Am7                D7
completely disappears.
       CM7        Bm             Em       
By the blue-tiled walls near the market stalls
          B7                        C
there's a hidden door she leads you to.
              B7           Em  
"These days," she says, "I feel my life
            Am7                   D
just like a river running through
                CM7(no5)  D6add9/F#  E(no3) [3x] Am7 Am7addG D7 D7sus4
the Year of the Cat."

Bridge

         B7              C
Well she looks at you so cooly
        G                   D
and her eyes shine like the moon in the sea.
               B7            C                  
She comes in incense and pathchouli
       G             F           C         D
so you take her - to find what's waiting inside
                CM7(no5) D6add9/F#  E(no3) [3x] Am7 Am7addG D7 D7sus4
the Year of the Cat.

Verse

     CM7               Bm                Em
Well morning comes and you're still with her
        CM7         Bm                D7
and the bus and the tourists are gone.
           CM7              Bm         Em
And you've thrown away your choice and lost your ticket
       Am7             D7
so you have to stay on.
        CM7      Bm             Em  
But the drumbeat strains of the night remain
       B7                    C
in the rhythm of the newborn day.
         B7              Em                                    
You know sometime you're bound to leave her
        Am7                   D
but for now you're gonna stay
                   CM7(no5) D6add9/F# E(no3) [3x] Am7 Am7addG D7 D7sus4
in the Year of the Cat.
                   CM7(no5) D6add9/F# E(no3) [3x] Am7 Am7addG D7 D7sus4
