Virtute the Cat Explains Her Departure by the Weakerthans

For some reason this was rejected the first time... the chords are right.

all barre chords:

C#: -9-  F# -11- F#/F: -9- G#: -11-  A#: -13- F(II): -2-
    -9-     -11-       -11-    -13-      -15-        -2-
    -10-    -11-       -11-    -13-      -15-        -3-
    -11-    -11-       -11-    -13-      -15-        -4-
    -11-    -9-        -8-     -11-      -13-        -4-
    -9-     -x-        -x-     -x-       -x-         -2-

       C#                       F#
It had something to do with the rain
F#       F#/F      G#
leeching loamy dirt
       C#                       F#
and the way the back lane came alive
F#       F#/F      G#
half moon whispered "go"
      F#      G#                C#           F#(II)
for a while I heard you missing steps in the street
         F#      G#            C#       F#(II)
and your anger pleading in an uncertain key
F#(II)                            C#            F#
singing the sound of you that you found for me

       C#                       F#
When the winter took the tips of my ears
F#       F#/F      G#
found this noisy home
       C#                       F#
full of pigeons and places to hide
F#       F#/F      G#
and when the voices die
       C#                       F#
I emerged to watched abandoned machines
F#       F#/F      G#
waiting for their men
       C#                       F#
to return, I remember the way
F#       F#/F      G#
I would wait for you
      F#      G#                C#           F#(II)
to arrive with kibble and a box full of beer
      F#      G#                C#           F#(II)
how I'd scratch the empties desperate to hear
F#(II)                            F#
you make the sound that you found for me

F# /// /// F#/F /// /// G# /// /// A# /// /// 

After scrapping with the ferals and the tabby
let you brush my matted fur
how I'd knead into your chest while you were sleeping
shallow breathing made me purr

But I can't remember the sound that you found for me
I can't remember the sound that you found for me
I can't remember the sound

not bad. only a few suggestion, though:
i think it sounds better playing all of those chords normally (without the "#")
but putting a capo on the 1st fret. also, the "F#/F" sounds better as an Em, and the F#(II) sounds good just as a
regular F.

and at the end, the chords are this (with capo on 1st
But I can't remember the sound that you found for

sorry if i sounded like an ass or anything with my suggestions/corrections :) i just thought it sounded better
and was easier to play this way.

Hey, how come you stop giving chords after the second verse? The tune changes at that point, so I can't relate it to the chords from the previous verses. Is the final line of chords repeated throughout the rest or something?
