[Intro]
G


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


[Break]
G


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


[Chorus]
          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G     D        C      G              C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


[Break]
G


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


[Chorus]
          G        D     C        G     C            G          D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G      D      C        G              C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


[Bridge]
        Em                 G           C     D     Em
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
         G                        Em           C        D       G
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part


[Break]
G


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


[Chorus]
            G       D     C        G     C            G          D
I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G      D         C       G            C        G     D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


[End] (one strum)
G

This is by far the most accurate tab but the third line of the chorus is missing chords. It should be the same as the first line of the chorus.
G D C G for the third line of chorus
