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.

I think that the:
Dm Dm7 Am Dm
I don't bother chasing mice around. I slink down the alley looking...

Sounds better as:

Dm Dm6 Dm Dm6 Am Amadd9 Am Amadd9 Dm
I don't bother chasing mice around. I slink down the alley looking...

Amadd9 Dm6
