Leonard Cohen – Suzanne












[Verse 1]

  E
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
        F#m
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night beside her
        E
And you know that she's half-crazy, but that's why you wanna be there
        G#m                                 A
And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China
        E                                   F#m
And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her
         E                                   F#m
Then she gets you on her wavelength, and she lets the river answer
            E
That you've always been her lover

[Chorus 1]

        G#m                              A
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
        E                                  F#m
And you know she will trust you for you've touched her perfect body
          E
With your mind

[Verse 2]

    E
And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water
       F#m
And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower
    E
And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him
          G#m                            A
He said: "All men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them"
    E                            F#m
But he himself was broken long before the sky would open
   E                       F#m
Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom
       E
Like a stone

[Chorus 2]

        G#m                              A
And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind
        E                                     F#m
And you think maybe you'll trust him for he's touched your perfect body
         E
With his mind

[Verse 3]

      E
Now Suzanne takes your hand, and she leads you to the river
       F#m
She is wearing rags and feathers from the Salvation Army counter
        E
And the sun pours down like honey on Our Lady of the Harbour
        G#m                               A
And she shows you where to look among the garbage and the flowers
         E                                 F#m
There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning
         E                                   F#m
They are leaning out for love, and they will lean that way forever
        E
While Suzanne holds the mirror

[Chorus 3]

        G#m                              A
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
        E                                     F#m
And you know that you can trust her for she's touched your perfect body
         E
With her mind
