Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Chelsea Hotel  Leonard Cohen

        You were talking so [G]brave and so s[Am]weet;
        [C]Giving me [G]head on the [F]unmade bed, [C]
        While the [F]limousines waitin the st[G]reet.
        [Am]Those were the reasons and [F]that was New York,
        We were [C]running for the [E/B]money and the f[Am]lesh.
        And [F]that was called love for the [C]workers in song,
        Probably [F]still is for those of them l[G]eft.


Chorus1: F C
Ah, but you got away, didn't you babe,
           You just turned your b[E/B]ack on the c[Am]rowd,
           [F]You got away,I never once [C]heard you say:
           "I[F] need you,I don't [C]need you,
           I [F]need you, I don't [C]need you"
           And [F]all of that jiving a[Am]round.   [G]


Verse2: C G F C
I remember you well in the Celsea Hotel:
         You were famous, your [G]heart was a [Am]legend.
         You [C]told me a[G]gain you preferred [F]handsome men [C]
         But for [F]me you would make an exception. [G]
         And [Am]clenching your fist for the [F]ones like us
         Who are opp[C]ressed by the [E/B]figures of [Am]beauty,
         You [F]fixed yourself, you said, "[C]Well never mind,
         We are [F]ugly but we have the [G]music."


Chorus2: F C
And then you got away, didn't you baby,
           You just turned your[E/B] back on the[Am] crowd,
           [F]You got away, I never once [C]heard you say:
           "I[F] need you,I don't [C]need you,
           I [F]need you, I don't [C]need you"
           And [F]all of that jiving a[Am]round.   [G]


Verse3: C G F C
I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
          I can't keep track of [G]each fallen ro[Am]bin.
          I re[C]member you [G]well in the [F]Celsea Hotel,  [C]
          That's [F]all, aI don't even think of you that [G]often.
