SUZANNE - (Leonard Cohen)

Suzanne takes you down to her place near a river, you can hear the boats
  MI                                                       FA#m

go by you can spend the night beside her, and you know that she's half
                                                   MI

crazy but that's why you want to be there, and she feeds you tea and
                                                   SOL#m

oranges that come all the way from China, and just when you mean to tell
                  LA                                MI

her that you have no love to give her, then she gets you on her
             FA#m                               MI

wavelength and she lets the river answer, that you've always been her lover
                   FA#m                              MI

And you want to travel with her and you want to travel blind, and you know that
       SOL#m                         LA                         MI

she will trust you, for you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
                              FA#m                            MI   MI4

And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water, and he spent a long
    MI                                                        FA#m

time watching from his lonely wooden tower, and when he knew for certain
                                                 MI

only drowning men could see him, he said, all men will be sailors then
                                          SOL#m

until the sea shall free them, but he himself was broken long before the
  LA                               MI                           FA#m

sky would open forsaken almost human he sank beneath your wisdom like a
                  MI                    FA#m

stone. And you want to travel with her and you want to travel blind and
 MI    SOL#m                           LA

you know that she will trust you for you've touched her perfect body with
     MI                                      FA#m

your mind.    Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
     MI   MI4       MI

she is wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters, and the
        FA#m

sun pours down like honey on our lady of the harbour, and she shows you
MI                                                             SOL#m

where to look among the garbage and the flowers, there are heroes in
                        LA                                 MI


the seaweed there are children in the morning, They are leaning out for
                       FA#m                               MI

love and they will lean that way forever while Suzanne holds the mirror.
                   FA#m                          MI

And you want to travel with her and you want to travel blind and you know
SOL#m                           LA                                    MI

and you know that she will trust you for you've touched her perfect body
                                                FA#m

with your mind
          MI   MI4 MI
