Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Suzanne  Leonard Cohen

[G]Suzanne takes you down To her place by the river,
You can [Am]hear the boats go by, You can spend the night beside her,
And you [G]know that she's half crazy, And that's why you want to be there;
And she [Bm]feeds you tea and oranges That come [C]all the way from China;
And j[G]ust when you mean to tell her That you have no love to give her,
She [Am]gets you on her wave-length And lets the river answer
That you've [G]always been her lover.

And you [Bm]want to travel with her, And you [C]want to travel blind,
And you [G]know that you can trust her,
For you've [Am]touched her perfect body With your [G]mind.

[G]And Jesus was a sailor When He walked upon the water,
And he [Am]spent a long time watching From a lonely wooden tower,
And when [G]he knew for certain Only drowning men could see Him,
He said, [Bm]"All men shall be brothers, then, Until [C]the sea shall free them,"
But [G]He himself was broken Long before the sky would open,
For[Am]saken, almost human, He sank beneath your wisdom
Like a [G]stone.
And you [Bm]want to travel with Him, And you [C]want to travel blind,
And you [G]think you maybe trust Him,
For He's [Am]touched your perfect body With His [G]mind.
[G]Suzanne takes you down To her place by the river,
You can [Am]hear the boats go by, You can spend the night forever,
And the [G]sun pours down like honey, On our lady of the harbour;
And she [Bm]shows you where to look Amid the [C]garbage and the flowers.
There are [G]heroes in the seaweed, There are children in the morning,
They are [Am]leaning out for love, And they will lean that way forever,
While Su[G]zanne holds the mirror.
And you [Bm]want to travel with her, And you [C]want to travel blind,
And you [G]know that you can trust her,
For you've [Am]touched her perfect body With your [G]mind.

G
Suzanne neemt je mee

naar een bank aan het water
Am
duizend schepen gaan voorbij

en toch wordt het maar niet later
G
en je weet dat ze gek is

want daarom zit je naast haar
Bm
en ze geeft je pepermuntjes
C
want ze geeft je graag iets tastbaars
G
en net als je haar wilt zeggen

Ik kan jou geen liefde geven
Am
komt heel de stad tot leven

en hoor je meeuwen schreeuwen
G
je hebt steeds van haar gehouden

Bm
en je wilt wel met haar meegaan
C
samen naar de overkant
G
en je moet haar wel vertrouwen
Am D9
want zij houdt al jouw gedachten
G
in haar hand
