...CARRYING CATHY... by Ben Folds
--------------------.............

*from 'Rockin' The Suburbs' (2001)*


*CAPO 4th FRET*

(Original Key: F#)


Intro:

D  G, D  G, C  F, C  F
D  G, D  G, C  F, C, Bbmaj7,
D  Em7/D  D

Verse 1:

D               D7
 Her window was hung like a painting,
    D6                       Bbmaj7
She worried it might come to life.
D/A             A7
 She stared for hours.

D                   D7/C
 So obsessed was I, and self-absorbed that I,
Bm7                  Bbmaj7 D/A  A
 Didn't see that she was,    cry-ing.

Chorus 1:

          Gm7            Gm7/C
There was always someone carrying,
          Fmaj7          Bbmaj7
There was always someone carrying,
Gm                Csus4    C D
 Always someone's carrying,  Cathy.

Interlude:

D  G, D  G, C  F, C (x2)

Verse 2:

D                          D7/C
 There were times when I'd find myself saying that;
D6                   Bbmaj7
 "Friends, you don't understand",
          D/A                  A7
And she's different, when it's just me and her.

      D                     D7/C
And I closed the door and I tried to hang on,
        Bm7           Bbmaj7      D/A          A
And she sank into the dark. I was over my head.

Chorus 2:

          Gm7            Gm7/C
There was always someone carrying,
          Fmaj7          Bbmaj7
There was always someone carrying,
Gm                Csus4    C (D)
 Always someone's carrying,   Cathy.

Interlude:

D  G, D  G, C  F, C

Bridge 1:

            Bbmaj7                          D
We gave you everything; you could have been anything.
            Bbmaj7                          D
We gave you everything; you could have done anything.

         Bbmaj7                     Dm6 D      Dm6   D
But to i-magine a fall, with no one at  all to catch you.

Chorus 3:

                    Gm7      C13  Fmaj7, Bb, Gm7  C13  D
There'd always been someone...

Gm7                          C13
 Then one night, she climbed into the picture frame.
Fmaj7              Bbmaj7   Gm7 C7  D     G  D
 Out in the frozen air, and out, of sight.

Verse 3:

D                      D7
 Woke up sad from this dream I've been having,
    D6                    Bbmaj7  D/A  A7
The last couple nights or so.

         D                          D7/C
With her father and brothers, we're all at the funeral,
Bm7                         Bbmaj7
 Carrying a box through the rain.
     D/A                     A7
Then somebody says that it's always been this way.

Chorus 4:

Gm7               Gm7/C
 Always someone's carrying,
          Fmaj7          Bbmaj7
There was always someone carrying,
Gm                Csus4    C (D)
 Always someone's carrying,   Cathy.

Outro:

D  G, D  G, C  F, D
