FIRST WE'LL TAKE MANHATTAN      LEONARD COHEN


Intro: Am    Am    Em     Em
       Am    Am    Em     Em
       Am    Am    Em     Em
       D     C      B      C
       Em    Em


      Am                             Em
They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
      Am                                Em
For trying to change the system from within
     Am                         Em
I'm coming now, I'm coming to reward them
 D               C     B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin


     Am                       Em
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
     Am                             Em
I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
     Am                         Em
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
 D               C     B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin


     G                               D   C 
I'd really like to live beside you, baby
             G                              Em
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
         G                                       Em
But you see that line there moving through the station?
   D          C           B                       Em
I told you, I told you, I told you, I was one of those


        Am                                 Em
Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you're worried that I just might win
              Am                     Em
You know the way to stop me, but you don't have the discipline
     Am                               Em
How many nights I prayed for this, to let my work begin
 D               C     B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin


Am                                  Em
I don't like your fashion business, mister
    Am                                      Em
And I don't like these drugs that keep you thin
Am                               Em
I don't like what happened to my sister
 D               C     B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin


     G                               D   C 
I'd really like to live beside you, baby
             G                              Em
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
         G                                       Em
But you see that line there moving through the station?
   D          C           B                       Em
I told you, I told you, I told you, I was one of those


        Am                               Em
And I thank you for those items that you sent me
     Am                       Em
The monkey and the plywood violin
    Am                              Em
I practiced every night and now I'm ready
 D               C     B                 Em     D     C      C
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin


      Am                           Em
Ah remember me, I used to live for music
   Am                                Em
Remember me, I brought your groceries in
           Am                          Em
Well it's Father's Day and everybody's wounded
 D               C     B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin
