Intro
[Bm7] [G] [Em] [F#m7]  
[Bm7] [G] [Em] [F#m7]  
It's [Bm7]four in the morning, the [G]end of December
[Em]I'm writing you now just to s[F#m7]ee if you're better
N[Bm7]ew York is cold, but I[G] like where I'm living
There's[Em] music on Clinton Street [F#m7]all through the evening
[Bm7]I hear that you're b[C#m7]uilding your little h[Bm7]ouse deep in the d[C#m7]esert
[Bm7]You're living for n[A]othing now, I hope you're k[Bm7]eeping some kind of r[A]ecord
Yes, and J[D]ane came by with a lock of your h[A]air
She said that you gave it to h[Bm7]er
That night that you planned to go cl[C#m7]ear[A]
[G]Did you ever go cl[F#m7]ear?
Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
You'd been to the station to meet every train
And you came home without Lili Marlene
And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobody's wife
Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see Jane's awake
She sends her regards
[Bm7] [G] [Em] [F#m7]  
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
I'm glad you stood in my way
If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Well your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free
Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good
So I never tried
And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Sincerely, L Cohen
