Cat Power - Headlights tab version 1

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Headlights by Cat Power
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a tab for the version of the song that appears on her 1993 debut single. It
differs from the version on 'Dear Sir' quite a bit, both with the music and the lyrics, 
so I
figure a separate tab is necessary. The only trick here is to be able to stretch your 
index finger down a half step while maintaining the barre. You can also mute the low E
string by slightly pressing the top of your index finger against it.

Tabbed by: Scott H.

"x" = mute string

(0:21 - 0:30) Then resume Main Riff for the rest of the song Lyrics: Last thing I remember Somebody was laughing in my ear Last thing I remember The sun was coming up Last thing I remember... Last thing I remember... Hey, the headlights are getting too close to me Hey, the headlights are cutting me Hey, I can't even see Somewhere above me I can see Blackbirds singing Or are they weeping? Somewhere above me I can hear My friend weeping My friend screaming over me Lifting her arms up to the sky God, why? God, why? Somewhere above me I can hear Blackbirds singing Or are they weeping? Get up around eight Get up around eight Let's make some coffee and get real stoned Hey, let's play a record or two A record or two A record or two Hey, the headlights are getting too close to me Hey, the headlights are cutting me And I can't see Somewhere above me I can see Flowers that are hung around her home They're dried up They're lying above me Sun's going down again Birds are whispering again They're saying I'm okay They're saying I'm quite alright They're saying I'm okay I'm alone It's cold as hell It's cold as hell It's cold as hell
