Leonard Cohen guitar chords    


Intro: Am7    F      Dm     Em7
       Am7    F      Dm     Em7      

     Am7                      F
It's four in the morning, the end of December
Dm                           Em7
I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
 Am7                   F
New York is cold, but I like where I'm living
       Dm                       Em7
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening

Am7                 Bm7                  Am7               Bm7 
I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
Am7                G                          Am7                  G   
You're living for nothing now, I hope you're keeping some kind of record

          C                                G
Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
                                    Bm7   G
That night that you planned to go clear
F                 Em7
Did you ever go clear?

         Am7                      F
Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Dm                             Em7
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
       Am7                    F
You'd been to the station to meet every train
   Dm                      Em7
And you came home without Lili Marlene

         Am7        Bm7         Am7          Bm7
And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
Am7                G  Am7                G
And when she came back she was nobody's wife

        C                                   G
Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
                    Bm7   G
Well I see Jane's awake
F                Em7
She sends her regards

Am7    F      Dm     Em7

      Am7                    F
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
Dm                   Em7
What can I possibly say?
   Am7                  F           
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
Dm                        Em7
I'm glad you stood in my way

Am7               Bm7    Am7               Bm 
If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Am7                  G      Am7                 G
Well your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free

           C                          G
Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good
             Bm7   G
So I never tried

     C                                G
And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
                                    Bm7   G
That night that you planned to go clear
F              Em7
Sincerely, L. Cohen

Am7    F      Dm     Em7
