I profess that loneliness isn't always by company cured the

cats are in the windows dogs are at the doors the

Cmaj7            G.              C                    G
long to feel the quickening that anything from you to me can bring
Cmaj7                   G                   C                    G
actors never stop their acting and a singer never has a thing to say but

* 3rd-string could be left open then maybe the high-G is an overtone/harmonic caused by the tight fingering position. Suggestions welcomed from anyone who has seen Josh play. ================================================================================

h = hammer-on \ / = slide The ring-finger slide on the Cmaj9-chord is really a position shift since the index-finger plays the next note also at Fret-10.
