Morning comes on an old cat's paws And when the sun hits the walls The light's as bright as it ever was After or before And you wince as waking pounds your head And you drag your arm across the bed And the tangled sheets and the twisted spread Fall onto the floor And the kitchen table finds you silent If you had a thought, now you can't find it You take a long drag on your smoke And taste your coffee growing cold She didn't beg and you didn't plead She knew exactly how to leave The way she knew when you kissed her When she's gone, you won't miss her She didn't beg and you didn't plead She knew exactly when to leave The way she knew as you kissed her When she's gone, you won't miss her

repeat and fade] Here's the strumming pattern for most of the song. The funny-looking lines are musical notes. The numbers above the notes are just the relative durations, for the benefit of the notationally impaired. The first chord of each line is actually just a single note, or perhaps just the two or three lowest strings. The last C(9) in the first two lines is only played sometimes; other times, it's just an eighth note at the end of the measure, and other times there's _no_ chord after the C*. F: x33211 or 133211 (fret the E string with your thumb) F(9): x33011 or 133011 (fret the E string with your thumb) C (9 fr.): 330010 C*: hammer-on (quickly) from 330010 to 332010 2 1 1 1 1 2 3 3 2

For the other parts (e.g., the Am F G C part), it's never very complex; mostly just like this: 2 1 1 2 1 1 | +--+ | +--+
