Leonard Cohen

{st:Leonard Cohen}

[G]Suzanne takes you down to her place by the river
You can [Am]hear the boats go by you can spend the night beside her
And you [G]know that she's half crazy but that's why you want to be there
And she [Bm]feeds you tea and oranges that come [C]all the way from China
And just [G]when you mean to tell her that you [Am]have no love to give her
Then she [G]gets you on her wavelength and she [Am]lets the river answer
That you've [G]always been her lover

And you [Bm]want to travel with her and you [C]want to travel blind
And you [G]know that she will trust you
For you've [Am]touched her perfect body with your [G]mind

[G]And Jesus was a sailor when He walked upon the water
And He [Am]spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower
And [G]when He knew for certain only drowning men could see Him
He said [Bm]All men will be sailors then un[C]til the sea shall free them
But [G] He Himself was broken long be[Am]fore the sky would open
For[G]saken almost human. He [Am]sank beneath your wisdom like a [G]stone

And you [Bm]want to travel with him and you [C]want to travel blind
And you [G]think maybe you'll trust him
For he's [Am]touched your perfect body with his [G]mind

[G]Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
She is [Am]wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters
And the [G]sun pours down like honey on our lady of the harbor
And she [Bm]shows you where to look among the [C]garbage and the flowers
There are [G]heroes in the seaweed there are [Am]children in the morning
They are [G]leaning out for love and they will [Am]lean that way forever
While Su[G]zanne holds the mirror

And you [Bm]want to travel with her and you [C]want to travel blind
And you [G]know that you will trust her
For she's [Am]touched your perfect body with her [G]mind
