Intro:
G G

Verse:
G G C C G G
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
C C G G D D
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
G G C C G G
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
C C G G D D
With my father in a casket, I had no plans

Break:
G G

Pre-chorus:
G G C C G G
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
C C G G D D
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
G G C C G G
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
C C G G D D
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around

Chorus:
G G C C G G C C G G D D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
G G C C G G C C G G D D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

Break:
G G

Pre-chorus II:
G G C C G G
While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
C C G G D D
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
G G C C G G
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
C C G G D D
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

Chorus:
G G C C G G C C G G D D
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
G G C C G G C C G G D D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

Bridge:
Em Em G G C C D D Em Em
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
G G Em Em C C D D G G
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part

Break:
G G

Pre-chorus II:
G G C C G G
I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
D D
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind
G G C C G G
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
C C G G
It's a bed and a bathroom
D D
And a place for the end

Chorus:
G G C C G G C C G G D D
I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
G G C C G G C C G G D D
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time
