                      SWEET SCARLET by Cat Stevens          CAPO AT 3rd FRET

Verse 1
 D               C      D7      Em               A
Once she came in-to my room, feathered hat, and all,
   Em                 A               D          A    D   Em              A
Wearing a warm wool shawl wrapped a-round her should-ers. Two eyes like lights,
 Em             A          Bm7    D     Em           A
Milky marble whites looking up at me, looking for a way, 
  Em                 A        D              C        D7
Moons in an endless day. And all I knew was with her then, 
       Em              A           Em            A           D         A    D
No, couldn't see the time,as we drank down the wine to the last sweet scar-let

Verse 2 
 E             D            F#m             B       F#m           B
How was I to wonder why, or even question this?   Underneath her kiss,
      E       D   E      A              B             E                    C#m
I was so un-guard-ed . Every bottle's empty now, and all those dreams are gone,
F#m           B       Em    A7 D   C     Em  A   Em  A
Ah, but the song goes on so ho-ly

Verse 3
 D                 C     D7    Em            A       Em           A
She was so much younger then, wild like the wind, a gypsy with a grin,
         D            A    D        Em                A
From an old far away coun-try, but deep beneath her curls,
     Em               A               D          Bm  E                  
Be-neath this misty pearl, there was more to see.   She could move mountains
 D                F#m         B        F#m          B              E 
in the dark, as silent as a knife, she cut loose a life that she never, 
                  D   E    A                   B              E
No, never really want-ed. All those days are frozen now, and all those scars
     C#m  F#m          B           Em    A7  Em G
are gone, ah, but the song carries on so ho-ly

Verse 4
Em G    C Bm   Em D   Bm F#   F#7 Bm   F#   Bm    Em Bm F#    F#7 Bm  

 Em Bm F#   B Em B7    E           D             F#m               B
                     Come let us drink again, be-fore the second show,
  F#m             B                 E        D    E
I want you so to know ,there's no bridge be-tween us,
 A                      B               E                   C#m
All those gates have opened now, and through the light has shone,
F#m          B           Em    A7 D  C   Em A   Em A   D
ah, but the song carries on so ho-ly
