Nine Cats Chords

NINE CATS   (S. Wilson - A. Duffy)
Am			       D    
The butterfly sailed on the breeze
Fmaj7   	              E
Past a field of barbed wire trees
Am			       D
Where golden dragons chased around
Fmaj7                     E
Pampered poppies on the ground
C                            Am   Fmaj7  
Two silver trout sat way on high
C              G         Am    Fmaj
And watched a royal samurai 
C                             Am Fmaj7
Plant two black orchids in a box
 C	      G             Am   Fmaj7
And strap it to a laughing fox
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/porcupine_tree/nine_cats_crd.html ]
Am			      D
A minstrel bought a crooked spoon
Am		        D
He gave it to a blue baboon
Am			      D
Who filled it full of virgin snow
     Fmaj7      G           Am
And watched it in the afterglow 

Fat toad stood in his ballet shoes
Teaching sixteen kangaroos
How to skip across a lake
They found it hard to stay awake
A pharaoh played a merry tune
And watched nine cats dance on the moon
I didn't know what all this meant
I didn't know why I'd been sent. 

The Insignificance version of Nine Cats has the following additional verse at the end: 

I threw 5 clocks down on my bed
The chimes danced out on golden threads
And turned to footprints on my wall
Sequined tears began to fall
