Chelsea Hotel No. 2  Leonard Cohen

capo on fifth fret
Verse1: C F C
I remember you well in the Celsea Hotel,
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.
