Em  > 12th fret harmonics (highest 4 strings)
A  > hammer on G string at second fret, pull off on D
          2nd fret repeat, moving up one octave.

Verse 1:
Em                         G
The leaves seen through my window pane
  D                 A               Em           G  D  A
Remind me that it's time to move my life again
Em              G
November sun is felt by none
  D                A
A chilly breeze has blown my thoughts
  Em               G  D  A
To what's to come
         Em                G
A cup of warm coffee, some vitamin C
  D                   A
A bowl for the cat, a bowl for the dog,
  Em            G  D  A
A bowl for me
          Em                G
Choose my bluest tape and unlock my car
   D                  A
An honest tune with a lingering lead
    Em            G     D  A
has taken me this far


Theme 2:
C          G          D
(increase tempo-swing time)
G             Am
G             Em
G             Am
Bm            Dm
G             Am
G             Em
G             Am
Bm            Dm (x4)


Repeat intro. without harmonics and hammer-ons, jam
over one verse, and repeat Theme 2 much faster.
Play intro. again before 2nd verse.

Verse 2:
On the edge of the porch in the warm evening night
Throwing the bone for the dog I see two passing lights
Well, I wonder where that driver's bound
Is there someone, somewhere, someway out there
That I've not found
A touch of smoke ain't what it seems
Dust and sunshine can also make my eyes look mean
But there's a brown cat sleeping through this day's show
Toppin' off the woodpile, breathing slow

(Theme 2)

For the final jam, commonly known as "Breathing Slow",
play the Bm > Dm riff from Theme 2 at a much slower tempo.
Mikey throws in the following signature lick:

    /        /         /       /
