NINE CATS   (S. Wilson - A. Duffy)
Am			       D    
The butterfly sailed on the breeze
Fmaj7   	              E
Past a field of barbed wire trees
Am			       D
Where golden dragons chased around
Fmaj7                     E
Pampered poppies on the ground
C                            Am   Fmaj7  
Two silver trout sat way on high
C              G         Am    Fmaj
And watched a royal samurai 
C                             Am Fmaj7
Plant two black orchids in a box
 C	      G             Am   Fmaj7
And strap it to a laughing fox

Am			      D
A minstrel bought a crooked spoon
Am		        D
He gave it to a blue baboon
Am			      D
Who filled it full of virgin snow
     Fmaj7      G           Am
And watched it in the afterglow 

Fat toad stood in his ballet shoes
Teaching sixteen kangaroos
How to skip across a lake
They found it hard to stay awake
A pharaoh played a merry tune
And watched nine cats dance on the moon
I didn't know what all this meant
I didn't know why I'd been sent. 

The Insignificance version of Nine Cats has the following additional verse at the end: 

I threw 5 clocks down on my bed
The chimes danced out on golden threads
And turned to footprints on my wall
Sequined tears began to fall

Why can i not find this tab anywhere correctly? Everyone says that the first chord is Am, but if you play that, it sounds so off. It's some kind of Bm if you listen for the root. Maybe this needs a capo?
