Alright, so the song is originally in the key of G, using the chords G, C, and F. that order. I have tabbed the song 3 steps higher, in the key of A using the chords A, F#m, E. This is because I like to sing along (I'm a girl with a voice naturally higher than original key), and I don't have a capo at the moment. To play it in the original key, substitute the chords in the order above. Hope it isn't too confusing! Play well and love. This is a great song. ~amaqqut A I knew a woman once F#m giving birth to kittens and mice A F#m and as you know their eating habits A E Those poor mice had to die A so the kittens were born F#m full of their brothers and sisters A And they were punished swiftly E F#m though they did not know why A F#m A They thought they were food F#m E they did not know what they'd done A And I was a person once F#m sending off unread letters E A receiving no reply F#m A F#m never bothering asking why A I had a heart once F#m full of fire and passion E A F#m but the summer took it away from me A F#m A And autumn has come to retrieve it A F#m E autumn has come to retrieve it A And I was a man once F#m When I was six-years-old A F#m but now I am just a boy E A F#m pretentious and brash and bold A The kittens were murdered F#m thrown into burlap sacks A and weighted down with rocks E A F#m in a river deep and black A F#m A And they went to Heaven. A F#m E A They went to Heaven.
