G                             F
Black cat crossed our path on little fog feet
        G                      F
There's crows flying beside my window
        G                              F
We left superstition on the roadside a few cities ago
     G                       F
They spent our souls, maybe,    but they didn't take our

Verse 2:
There's a sweet corn princess smiling

Remember we stopped for tamales last time?

There's another song playing, and we can hear it
   in the wind outside

Verse 3 (with Main Theme):
Little black kitty crossed our path wearing little fog feet
And the crows they're just drifters through my window
The late night city's lights are growing sharper
And I hear another song, I see it pouring
   from the look in your eyes

Chorus (with Theme 2 and transition riff):
[G   F       C  (x3)]  C  Eb
  We listen,
[G   F     C  (x3)]  C  Eb
  We shake,             to the radio
