Yellow Cat chords Guitar Chords By John Denver

G                A#             G          A#

Dm7                                           Cmaj7
It's late De-cem-ber and the New Year's nev-er com-ing,
           Dm7                               Cmaj7
time pass-es slow-ly in a two-room walk-up flat,
            Am                              E7
The sun is silent there's a cold rain's gonna come on,
           F              G              C
No one to talk to but my lady's yellow cat.

           Dm7                         Cmaj7
Raindrops falling on the flowers in the window box,
         Dm7                     Cmaj7
Plastic roses that I planted yesterday.
          Am                                    E7
I didn't think they'd die so soon but they're all withered now,
           F          G                      C
Seems like everything I touch turns out that way.

Chorus 
         E7
Well, I guess I'll just go walking,
     Am                 Am/G
The cat's no Good for talking to,
    D7
He don't know what I'm saying
         Dm                        G            A#      G     /
And the rain is always playing on my mind, on my mind.


Street lights drifting through the blinds that cover window panes
blending softy with the bare lights overhead.
Then together they run swiftly through my memory
An eerie image in a strange and empty bed.


The wind is whippin' up the papers in the street below
I got some books to read but it seems they've all been read
Clouds are crowded in a misty drifting sky above
I wish to hell I could remember what I said.

Repeat Chorus


One crystal wine glass on a table filled with scarlet stains
Stands alone and empty where there once were two
The jug is silent on the table by a broken plate
The wine is gone, my lady, and so, my love, are you.

         E7
Well, I guess I'll just go walking,
     Am                Am/G
The cat's no Good for talking to,
    D7
He don't know what I'm saying
         Dm                        G           A#           G        A#
And the rain is always playing on my mind, on my mind, on my mind
