this is a good one.  I play it for my cat all the time.  Crank up the reverb
and play it clean.  Some of you might want to sing Strat Cat Strut.
could someone send this to Nevada FTP?

This is the basic progression: Cm  Bb  Ab  G7

Ain't got enough dough to pay the rent.

Cm       Bb        Ab      G7        G7 (tacet)
I'm flat broke but I don't care,   I strut right by with my tail in the air.

      Fm          Eb           Db       C7    Fm (tacet)
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man.  Get my dinner from a garbage can.
