Anthem  Leonard Cohen

Intro
[A#m] [G#]  
The birds they s[C#]ang
[C#sus4]At the break of da[C#]y[C#sus4]
Start ag[G#]ain
I heard them s[C#]ay[C#7]
Don't dw[F]ell[F7] on what
Has p[A#m]assed away[A#sus2]
Or what is y[G#sus4]et to be[G#6] [G#7] [G#]
Ah the wars they will
Be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
Bought and sold
And bought again
The dove is never free
Ring the b[F#]ells that st[B]ill can r[F#]ing[F#sus4]
Forg[F#]et your p[B]erfect offer[F#]ing
There is a cr[C#]ack, a cr[B]ack in [F#]everything
That's how the l[D#sus4]ight gets in
[G#sus4] [G#]  
[G#7]
We asked for signs
The signs were sent:
The birth betrayed
The marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
Of every government
Signs for all to see
I can't run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud
But they've summoned up, they've summoned up
A thundercloud
And they're going to hear from me
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
You can add up the parts
But you won't have the sum
You can strike up the march
There is no drum
Every heart, every heart
To love will come
But like a refugee
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
That's how the light gets in
That's how the light gets in
