[Intro]

Ab 


[Verse 1]

Ab
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
                                               Eb
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
Ab
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
                                       Eb       Ab
With my father in a casket, I had no plans


[Verse 2]

Ab                               C#                   Ab
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
                                                 Eb
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
Ab                                  C#                Ab
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
                                                          Eb
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around


[Chorus]

           C5       Ab     C#      Ab    C#         Ab           Eb
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           C5    Ab          C#   Ab    C#         Ab          Eb  
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


[Verse 3]

Ab                                C#                      Ab
While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
                                               Eb
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
Ab                          C#               Ab
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
            C#              Ab                        Eb
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you


[Chorus]

           C5       Ab     C#      Ab    C#         Ab           Eb
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           C5    Ab          C#   Ab    C#         Ab          Eb
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


[Bridge]

             Ab                       C#        Eb     Ab
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
                                Ab            C#      Eb        Ab
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part


[Verse 4}

Ab                      C#                  Ab
I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
                                                Eb
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind
Ab                                   C#            Ab
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
        C#           Ab  
It's a bed and a bathroom
                     Eb  
and a place for the end


[Chorus]

           C5       Ab     C#      Ab    C#         Ab           Eb
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           C5    Ab          C#   Ab    C#         Ab          Eb
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


[Outro]

Ab
