There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This song is actually in C but I think for a beginner it is easier in F.
To play along to the song,however,you would need a capo on 7!

Intro = F Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G x 2 C F C F A Dm G

        F Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G 

Verse 1
     F              Em     Am
On a morning from a Bogart movie
     F                  Em        Am
In a country where they turn back time
       F                     Em         Am
You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
      Dm             G
Contemplating a crime
          F          G        Am 
She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
       E                 F
Like a watercolor in the rain
             E          Am
Don't bother asking for explanations
            Dm                    G
She'll just tell you that she came
                   F  Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G
In the year of the cat

Verse 2
    F                Em       Am
She doesn't give you time for questions
       F             Em     Am
As she locks up your arm in hers
        F                Em       Am
And you follow till your sense of which direction
    Dm               G
Completely disappears
       F          G              Am
By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls
          E                         F
There's a hidden door she leads you to
               E      Am
These days she says I feel my life
            Dm                   G
Just like a river running through
                F  Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G
The year of the cat

Bridge
         E               F
Well she looks at you so coolly
        C                   G
And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea
             E               F
She comes in incense and patchouli
       C           Bb          F         G
So you take her to find what's waiting inside
                F  Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G  F Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G
The year of the cat

                   C F C F A Dm G G C G C Em E F D

                   F Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G
Verse 3
     F                 Em           Am
Well morning comes and you're still with her
        F           Em           Am
And the bus and the tourists are gone
           F                Em         Am
And you've thrown away your choice and lost your ticket
       Dm             G
So you have to stay on
        F        G              Am
But the drumbeat strains of the night remain
       E                      F
In the rhythm of the new born day
         E               Am
You know sometime you're bound to leave her
        Dm                      G
But for now you're going to stay
                   F  Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G  
In the year of the cat                          
               F  Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G  C F C F A Dm G
Mm year of the cat
              
               (F Em Am F Em Am F Em Am Dm G 
 F Em Am F Em Am F  Em Am Dm G) - repeat to fade
