A Bunch Of Lonesome Heros  Leonard Cohen



A bu[A]nch of lonesome and very quarrelsome her[Bm]oes
[E]Were smoking ou[E7]t along the open r[A]oa[Asus4]d      [A]
The night was very dark and thick bet[Bm]ween them
[E]Each man beneat[E7]h his ordinary l[A]oa[Asus4]d     [A]
CHORUS:
[D]  [Dmaj7]     "I[Bm]'d like to te[D]ll my sto[A]ry[Amaj7]"     [F#m]    [A]
Sai[B]d one of them so young and bo[E]ld [E7]
[D]  [Dmaj7]  "I'd like to te[Bm]ll my s[D]tor[A]y [Amaj7]       [F#m]    [A]
B[F#m]efore I turn into go[E]ld"[Esus4]      [E]  [E7]

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.
