One of Us Cannot Be Wrong  Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen: One of us cannot be wrong
I heard this song nearly thousand years ago when I was a fifteen year old boy.
And as simple as the music of the song is, it captivated me until today.
The song appears on the CD "Songs of Leonard Cohen"
and on the newest live album "Leonard Cohen: Live In Concert"
Knows anybody the chords of "Dance me to the end of love"?
I would be thankful if you'd send them to my email-adress

[A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/]  
[/A]I lit a [/]thin green[/Bm] candle[/Bm] [/]
[D]to make you[/D] jealous of [/A]me[/A]
but the[/A] room just filled[/A] up with mo[/Bm]squitoes[/Bm]
they [/D]heard that my[/D] body was f[/E]ree.[/E]
Then [/F#m]I took the [/F#m]dust of a[/C#m] long sleepless[/C#m] night
and I[/D] put it in[/D] your little [/A]shoe[/A]
and [/Bm]then I co[/Bm]nfess that I[/G] tortured the[/G] dress
that you [/Bm]wore for the [/A]world to look [/G]through.[/G] [/]
[A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/]  
[/A]I showed[/] my heart to the [/Bm]doctor[/Bm] [/]
[D]he said I'd[/D] just have to[/A] quit[/A]
then [/A]he wrote hi[/A]mself a pe[/Bm]rscription[/Bm]
and[/D] your name wa[/D]s mentioned in [/E]it.[/E]
Then[/F#m] he locked[/F#m] himself in a[/C#m] library[/C#m] shelf
with the[/D] details[/D] of our hone[/A]ymoon[/A]
and I[/Bm] hear from the[/Bm] nurse
that he's[/G] gotten much[/G] worse
and his[/Bm] practice is[/A] all in a[/G] ruin.[/G]
[A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/]  
[/A]I heard of a [/]saint who had[/Bm] loved y[/Bm]ou[/]
So I[/D] studied all[/D] night in his[/A] school[/A]
he[/A] taught tha[/A]t the duty of[/Bm] lovers[/Bm]
is to[/D] tarnish[/D] the golden[/E] rule.[/E]
And just[/F#m] when I was [/F#m]sure[/C#m] [/C#m]
that his[/C#m] teachings were[/C#m] pure
he [/Bm]drowned hi[/Bm]mself in the[/A] pool[/A]
his[/Bm] body is gone[/Bm] but back[/G] here on the[/G] lawn
his[/Bm] spirit co[/A]ntinues to[/G] drool[/G].
[A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/] [A] [/]  
[/A]An Eskim[/]o showed me a[/Bm] movie[/Bm] [/]
[D]he'd recent[/D]ly taken of[/A] you[/A]
the[/A] poor man c[/A]ould hardly stop[/Bm] shivering[/Bm],
his[/D] lips and his[/D] fingers were b[/E]lue.[/E]
I sup[/F#m]pose that [/F#m]he froze
when the[/C#m] wind took your[/C#m] clothes
and I[/D] guess he just[/D] never got[/A] warm
but you[/Bm] stand there so[/Bm] nice in your[/G] blizzard of[/G] ice
o, please[/Bm] let me come[/A] into the [/G]storm.[/G]
