Famous Blue Raincoat  Jonathan Coulton

[Am]It's four in the morning, the e[F]nd of December
I'm [Dm7]writing you now just to [Em]see if you're better
[Am]New York is cold, but I [F]like where I'm living
There's [Dm7]music on Clinton Street [Em]all through the evening.
[Am]I hear that you're [Bm]building your little [Am]house
deep in the [Bm]desert
You're [Am]living for [G]nothing now,
I hope you're [Am]keeping some kind of [G]record
Yes, and [C]Jane came by with a lock of your [G]hair
She said that you gave it to [Am]her
That night that you planned to go [Bm]clear[G]
[F]Did you ever go [Em]clear?
[Am]Ah, the last time we saw you you [F]looked so much older
Your [Dm7]famous blue raincoat was [Em]torn at the shoulder
[Am]You'd been to the station to [F]meet every train
[Dm7]And you came home without [Em]Lili Marlene
And you [Am]treated my [Bm]woman to a [Am]flake of your [Bm]life
And [Am]when she came [G]back [Am]she was nobody's [G]wife.
Well I [C]see you there with the rose in your [G]teeth
One more thin gypsy [Am]thief
Well I see Jane's [Bm]awake[G]
[F]She sends her [Em]regards.
[Am]And what can I tell you my [F]brother, my killer
[Dm7]What can I possibly [Em]say?
[Am]I guess that I miss you, I [F]guess I forgive you
[Dm7]I'm glad you stood in my [Em]way.
[Am]If you ever come [Bm]by here, [Am]for Jane or [Bm]for me
[Am]Your enemy is [G]sleeping, and [Am]his woman is [G]free.
Yes, and [C]thanks, for the trouble you [G]took from her eyes
I thought it was [Am]there for good so I never [Bm]tried.
And [C]Jane came by with a lock of your [G]hair
She said that you gave it to [Am]her
That night that you planned to go [Bm]clear[G]
[F]Sincerely, L. [Em]Cohen
[Am] [F] [Dm7] [Em]
