The Lumineers - Cleopatra Chords

0Intro: 
G#0 
1 
G#1 
2I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress 
                                                D#2 
3When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand 
          G#3 
4But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress 
                                     D#4 
5With my father in a casket, I had no plans 
6 
G#5                                  C#6              G#7 
7And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet 
                                                D#8 
8And it hardened like my heart did when you left town 
      G#9                           C#10                G#11     
9But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant 
                                                      D#12 
10Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around 
11 
          G#13        D#14     C#15        G#16     C#17            G#18          D#19 
12But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life 
           G#20   D#21             C#22   G#23             C#24        G#25     D#26 
13And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time 
14 
          G#27                       C#28                       G#29 
15While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me 
                                             D#30 
16Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true 
     G#31                     C#32       G#33 
17So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me 
         C#34               G#35                        D#36  
18From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you 
19 
        Fm37                 G#38           C#39     D#40     Fm41 
20And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce 
         G#42                        Fm43            C#44        D#45      G#46 
21But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part 
22 
      G#47                C#48               G#49 
23I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters 
                                              D#50 
24But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind 
      G#51                    C#52                   G#53     
25Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom 
       C#54         G#55 
26It's a bed and a bathroom 
                    D#56 
27And a place for the end 
28 
            G#57       D#58     C#59        G#60     C#61            G#62          D#63    
29I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life 
           G#64   D#65             C#66   G#67             C#68        G#69     D#70 
30And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time 
31 
32Outro: 
G#71
