                             Headlights by Cat Power
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a tab for the version of the song that appears on her 1993 debut single. It
differs from the version on 'Dear Sir' quite a bit, both with the music and the lyrics, 
so I
figure a separate tab is necessary. The only trick here is to be able to stretch your 
index finger down a half step while maintaining the barre. You can also mute the low E
string by slightly pressing the top of your index finger against it.

Tabbed by: Scott H.

"x" = mute string

Tuning: Standard



Main Riff:

e|---8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8----7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7----|

Lyrics:

    Last thing I remember
    Somebody was laughing in my ear
    Last thing I remember
    The sun was coming up
    Last thing I remember...
    Last thing I remember...

    Hey, the headlights are getting too close to me
    Hey, the headlights are cutting me
    Hey, I can't even see

    Somewhere above me I can see
    Blackbirds singing
    Or are they weeping?

    Somewhere above me I can hear
    My friend weeping
    My friend screaming over me

    Lifting her arms up to the sky
    God, why?
    God, why?
    Somewhere above me I can hear
    Blackbirds singing
    Or are they weeping?

    Get up around eight
    Get up around eight
    Let's make some coffee and get real stoned
    Hey, let's play a record or two
    A record or two
    A record or two

    Hey, the headlights are getting too close to me
    Hey, the headlights are cutting me
    And I can't see

    Somewhere above me I can see
    Flowers that are hung around her home
    They're dried up
    They're lying above me

    Sun's going down again
    Birds are whispering again
    They're saying I'm okay
    They're saying I'm quite alright
    They're saying I'm okay

    I'm alone
    It's cold as hell
    It's cold as hell
    It's cold as hell
