SUZANNE			LEONARD COHEN

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

Chorus
------
	 Em				  F
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
	 C
And you know that she will trust you,
	     F					C
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind


And Jesus was a sailor, when he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him he said
'All men will be sailors then, until the sky shall free them'
But he himself was broken, long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust him,
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind

Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags & feathers from Salvation Army counter
And the sun pours down like honey on Our Lady of the Harbour
And she shows you where to look among the garbage & the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love, & they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you,
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind
