Suzanne

Leonard Cohen

Su
E
zanne takes you down 
To her place near the river
You can
F#m
hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you
E
know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she
G#m
feeds you tea and oranges
That come
A
all the way from China
And just
E
when you mean to tell her
That you
F#m
have no love to give her
Then she
E
gets you on her wavelength
And she
F#m
lets the river answer
That you've
E
always been her lover
And you
G#m
want to travel with her
And you
A
want to travel blind
And you
E
know that she will trust you
For you've
F#m
touched her perfect body 
With your
E
mind
And
E
Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he
F#m
spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And
E
when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said
G#m
"All men will be sailors then
Un
A
til the sea shall free them"
But
E
he himself was broken
Long be
F#m
fore the sky would open
For
E
saken, almost human
He
F#m
sank beneath your wisdom 
Like a
E
stone
And you
G#m
want to travel with him
And you
A
want to travel blind
And you
E
think maybe you'll trust him
For he's
F#m
touched your perfect body 
With his
E
mind
Now Su
E
zanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is
F#m
wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the
E
sun pours down like honey
On Our Lady of the Harbour
And she
G#m
shows you where to look
Among the
A
garbage and the flowers
There are
E
heroes in the seaweed
There are
F#m
children in the morning
They are
E
leaning out for love
And they will
F#m
lean that way forever
While Su
E
zanne holds the mirror
And you
G#m
want to travel with her
And you
A
want to travel blind
And you
E
know you can trust her
For she's
F#m
touched your perfect body 
With her
E
mind
