A Bunch Of Lonesome Heros

Leonard Cohen

 ABm
A bunch of lonesome and very quarrelsome heroes
 EE7AAsus4A
 Were smoking out along the open road       
 Bm
The night was very dark and thick between them
 EE7AAsus4A
 Each man beneath his ordinary load      

CHORUS:
 DDmaj7BmDAAmaj7F#mA
        "I'd like to tell my story"          
 BEE7
Said one of them so young and bold  
 DDmaj7BmDAAmaj7F#mA
     "I'd like to tell my stor            
 F#mEEsus4EE7
Before I turn into gold"         

But no one really could hear him
The night so dark and thick and green
Well I guess that these heroes must always live there
Where you and I have only been

CHORUS #2:
Put out your cigarette, my love
You've been alone too long
And some of us are very hungry now
To hear what it is you've done that was so wrong

I sing this for the crickets
I sing this for the army
I sing this for your children
And for all who do not need me

CHORUS #3:
"I'd like to tell my story"
Said one of them so bold
"Oh yes, I'd like to tell my story
'Cos you know I feel I'm turning into gold"

Please note: The chords for the chorus are incorrect. End of first line should be ' A , Am7, A , Am7 '.( Don't play the 'F#m or the 'A', as noted. )   On the second line, in place of the 'B', use 'F#m' instead.
