JOAN OF ARC             LEONARD COHEN


Intro: G


          G                   D
Now the flames they followed Joan of Arc
C                     G
As she came riding through the dark
A                   D
No moon to keep her armour bright
    A                       G                    D
No man to get her through this (dark and) very smoky night


G                    D
She said, "I'm tired of the war
C                          G
I want the kind of work I had before
   A                D
A wedding dress or something white
    A          G             D
To wear upon my swollen appetite."


       D                            Am
La la la, la la la, la la la la la la
                C                  G  D               G
La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la


            G               D
Well, I'm glad to hear you talk this way
C                                G
You know I've watched you riding every day
A                    D
And something in me yearns to win
A              G             D
Such a cold and lonesome heroine


G                        D
"And who are you?" she sternly spoke
C             G
To the one beneath the smoke
    A           D
"Why, I'm fire," he replied
        A             G                  D
"And I love your solitude, I love your pride."



       D                            Am
La la la, la la la, la la la la la la
                C                  G  D               G
La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la


       G               D
"Then fire, make your body cold
C                      G
I'm going to give you mine to hold,"
A                 D
Saying this she climbed inside
    A              G            D
To be his one, to be his only bride


G                  D
And deep into his fiery heart
C                    G
He took the dust of Joan of Arc
A                   D
And high above the wedding guests
    A            G                 D
He hung the ashes of her wedding dress


       D                            Am
La la la, la la la, la la la la la la
                C                  G  D               G
La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la


        G             D
It was deep into his fiery heart
C                    G
He took the dust of Joan of Arc
A                    D
And then she clearly understood
    A            G                   D
If he was fire, oh then she must be wood


G               D
I saw her wince, I saw her cry
C               G
I saw the glory in her eye
A                  D
Myself I long for love and light
     A                G                D
But must it come so cruel, and oh so bright?


       D                            Am
La la la, la la la, la la la la la la
                C                  G  D               G
La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la
