TAKE THIS WALTZ      LEONARD COHEN



Intro: A      E

 
         A                        F#m
Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
          A               A/Ab            F#m
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
          D                        E
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
          D                           A    A/Ab
There's a tree where the doves go to die
           F#m                          
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
        Bm          Bsus2/F#   Bm           
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
D           A    A/Ab
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
           F#m             
Take this waltz, take this waltz
           Bm                         D      E
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws      
 

      A                      F#m
Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
     A             A/Ab     F#m
On a chair with a dead magazine
        D                      E
In the cave at the tip of the lilly
         D                           A    A/Ab
In some hallways where love's never been
     F#m                          
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
     Bm              Bsus2/F#      Bm             
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
D           A    A/Ab
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
           F#m             
Take this waltz, take this waltz
          Bm                  D      E     A
Take its broken waist in your hand
 

      F#m                     
This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
          Bm                 F#m
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
  Bm                     A      E
Dragging its tail in the sea
 
 
           A                F#m
There's a concert hall in Vienna
           A             A/Ab      F#m
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
           D                               E
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
              D                         A    A/Ab
They've been sentenced to death by the blues
        F#m                       
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
        Bm          Bsus2/F#  Bm           
With a garland of freshly cut tears?
D           A    A/Ab
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
           F#m              
Take this waltz, take this waltz
           Bm                        D      E
Take this waltz it's been dying for years


            A                        F#m 
There's an attic where children are playing
            A          A/Ab          F#m
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
      D                   E
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
        D                      A    A/Ab
In the mist of some sweet afternoon
         F#m                              
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
         Bm              Bsus2/F#   Bm           
All your sheep and your lillies of snow
D           A    A/Ab
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
           F#m              
Take this waltz, take this waltz
               Bm                      D      E     A
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

 
      F#m                     
This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
          Bm                 F#m
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
   Bm                     A      E
Dragging its tail in the sea
 

          A                  F#m
And I'll dance with you in Vienna
          A        A/Ab       F#m
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
      D                   E
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder
     D                        A
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
          A                  F#m
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook
           A               A/Ab      F#m
With the photographs there, and the moss
          D                          E
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
    D                   A    A/Ab
My cheap violin and my cross
            F#m                   
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
        Bm             Bsus2/F#      Bm      
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
       D           A    A/Ab
Oh my love, Oh my love
           F#m              
Take this waltz, take this waltz
      Bm                            D      E
It's yours now, it's all that there is
 

A      F#m    A      F#m
La, la, la...
D      E     D      A
F#m    F#m    Bm     Bm      
D      A      F#m...
