LEONARD COHEN. SI ESE ES TU DESEO

IF IT BE YOUR WILL

(Si ese es tu deseo)

Recuerdo perfectamente, como si fuese ayer, los cinco primeros discos que me compré y que dieron inicio a mi colección de música: Tea for the Tillerman de Cat Stevens. Tapestry de Carole King. Bridge Over Troubled Water de Simon & Grafunkel. The Freewheelin’ de Bob Dylan y el Greatest Hits de 1975 de Leonard Cohen. Estos fueron.

Les debo tanto que el día que yo muera, quiero descansar con ellos. Para tener banda sonora oportuna durante el tránsito a ninguna parte.

De estos cinco autores, a dos ya les han dado el Premio Príncipe de Asturias (Artes y Letras) a dos de ellos. A los mejores poetas: Bob Dylan y –ahora- a Leonard Cohen.

Los dos con coetáneos, los dos son, como ya he dicho, inconmensurables poetas. Los dos son judíos (Zimmermann y Cohen; No doubt) y los dos han sido compañeros inseparables de mi periplo musical. Tanto les debo, que ya son como de la familia. Como esos dos tíos carnales entrañables que nunca olvidas por muy lejos que vivan. Por mucho que ellos te ignoren porque no saben cómo transcurre tu existencia

Con la excusa de esta concesión al Sr. Cohen, no tengo más remedio que elaborar una entrega en este blog. La segunda, porque ya en su día inserté una donde podíais bajaros todas las letras (en inglés) de su discografía y los acordes para guitarra de cada una de ellas. Un trabajo arduo que compartí con vosotros.

Aquí podéis verlo:

https://fathergorgonzola.com/2009/09/26/leonard-cohen-canciones-y-acordes/

Porque si del Sr. Dylan tengo su discografía al completo, el Sr. Cohen, corre la misma suerte. Bueno…corro yo con ella.

 

Nunca me perdonaré el no haber acudido, hace un año o así, a Atarfe -Granada- a su ultimo concierto: un concierto calcado a su Live in London. Con un trío de acompañantes vocales femeninas fantásticas  y un grupo de músicos excelentes que adornaban –mas aun si cabe- las letras y la música de este enorme cantante, escritor y poeta.

Por eso es un verdadero honor poder ofreceros esta pequeña muestra de su obra.

Disfrutadla, estamos frente a un mito viviente. Frente a uno de los grandes de las letras de esta época que nos ha tocado vivir. Leonard Cohen: Mi amigo. Mi compañero de viaje.

 

Pongo primero una canción que a mi, particularmente, me sobrecoge por su belleza.

If it be your will (Si este es tu deseo) en una versión de Antony (sin the Johnson’s) que pertenece al documental sobre Cohen llamado I’m Your Man.

Aquí tenéis el link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKhGKB6faW0

Una maravilla de canción. Una enorme versión de Antony de uno de los más bellos poemas de Cohen; de una de las más bellas canciones del Leonard.

Si es tu deseo
que no vuelva a hablar
y que mi voz enmudezca
como estaba antes:
no hablaré más,
lo acataré hasta
que me digas otra cosa,
si ese es tu deseo.

si es tu deseo
que mi voz sea franca
desde esta colina rota:
te cantaré
desde esta colina rota
todas esas frases que conoces.
si es tu deseo
dejarme cantar.

si ese es tu deseo,
si hay la oportunidad:
deja al río fluir,
deja a los montes regocijarse,
deja derramarse tu generosidad
en todos los dolientes corazones en el infierno.
si es tu deseo
... encontrarnos bien
y traernos cerca
y unirnos fuerte.

todos tus hijos aquí
con sus jirones de luz
todos vestidos para matar
y terminar esta noche
si ese es tu deseo
si ese es tu deseo.

 

 

Después una recopilación de su concierto majestuoso en Londres, Live in London:

Que los disfrutéis.

How Can I Tell You

Cat Stevens

 

intro: Em A D G

Em           A               D G D G      Em  A

How can I tell you that I love  you, I love you

D     G        D              G

But I can’t think of right words to say

Em              A               D G    D        G

I long to tell you that I am always thinking of you,

Em                 A

I’m always thinking of you,

D     G     D       G  D G D        G

But my words just blow away,     just blow away

Em                   A

It always ends up to one thing, honey,

D     G     D                 G    Em A

And I can’t think of right words to say.

 

Wherever I am, girl,

I am always walking with you,

I am always walking with you,

But I look and you’re not there,

Whoever I’m with I’m always,

I’m always talking to you,

I’m always talking to you,

And I’m sad that you can’t hear,

Sad that you can’t hear,

It always adds up to one thing, honey,

When I look and you’re not there.

 

Em A D G D G  (repeat 4 times)

I need to know you,

Need to feel my arms around you,

Feel my arms surround you,

Like sea around a shore,

I pray in hope that I might find you,

In hope that I might find you,

Because hearts can do no more,

Can do no more.

It always adds up to one thing, honey,

Still I kneel upon the floor.

Em             A            Bm           Bm7

I don’t drink coffee I take tea my dear

Em         A                Bm    Bm7

I like my toast done on the side

Em           A            Bm            Bm7

And you can hear it in my accent when I talk

Em        A       Bm   Bm7

I’m an Englishman in New York

 

See me walking down Fifth Avenue

A walking cane here at my side

I take it everywhere I walk

I’m an Englishman in New York

If “manners maketh man” as someone said

Then he’s the hero of the day

It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile

Be yourself no matter what they say

I’m an alien   I’m a legal alien

Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society

Gdim7                              Bm

At night a candle’s brighter than the sun

 

Takes more than combat gear to make a man

Takes more than license for a gun

Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can

A gentleman will walk but never run

 

If “manners maketh man” as someone said

Then he’s the hero of the day

It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile

Be yourself no matter what they say

 

I’m an alien   I’m a legal alien

I’m an Englishman in New York

I’m an alien   I’m a legal alien

I’m an Englishman in New York

ake it everywhere I walk

I’m an alien   I’m a legal alien

I’m an Englishman in New York

 

D                       A         A7

Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety

Bm           Bm7             F#

You could end up as the only one

G                        A

Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society

Gdim7                              Bm

At night a candle’s brighter than the sun

 

Takes more than combat gear to make a man

Takes more than license for a gun

Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can

A gentleman will walk but never run

 

If “manners maketh man” as someone said

Then he’s the hero of the day

It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile

Be yourself no matter what they say

 

I’m an alien   I’m a legal alien

I’m an Englishman in New York

I’m an alien   I’m a legal alien

I’m an Englishman in New York

Oh the damage done.

 

I hit the city and I lost my band,

I watched the needle take another man,

Gone, gone, the damage done.

 

I sing the song because I love the man,

I know that some of you don’t understand;

milk-blood to keep from runnin’ out.

 

I’ve seen The Needle And The Damage Done,

A little part of it in everyone,

But every junkie’s like a settin’ sun.

Epitaph

King Crimson

 

Em                    D                 Am              B+  B

The wall on which the prophets wrote is cracking at the seams

Upon the instruments of death the sunlight brightly gleams

When every man is torn apart with nightmares and with dreams

Will no one lay the laurel wreath as silence drowns the screams

 

Em                      Bm

Confusion will be my epitaph

As I walk a cracked and broken path               C                      Bm

If we make it we can all sit back and laugh but I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying

 

Em                    D                 Am              B+  B

Between the iron gates of fate the seeds of time were sown

And watered by the deeds of those who know and who are known

Knowledge is a deadly friend when no one sets the rules

The fate of all mankind I see is in the hands of fools

 

 

 

Em                      Bm

Confusion will be my epitaph

As I walk a cracked and broken path               C                      Bm

If we make it we can all sit back and laugh but I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying

Said the straight man to the late man where have you been

E               C7+                  G7+             Am   B7

I’ve been here and I’ve been there and I’ve been in between

E      G7+         E         G7+

I talk to the wind my words are all carried away

E      G7+         Am             B7

I talk to the wind the wind does not hear

Am       B7

The wind cannot hear

 

I am on the outside looking inside

What do I see

Much confusion desillusion all around me

 

I talk to the wind my words are all carried away

I talk to the wind the wind does not hear

The wind cannot hear

 

You don’t possess me don’t impress me

Just upset my mind

Can’t destruct me or conduct me

Just use up my time

Tr(D)aveling in a fr(A)ied-out combie(Bm)      G    A

(D)On a hippie tra(A)il, head full of zom(Bm)bie  G  A

(D)I met a strange la(A)dy, she made me ner(Bm)vous  G  A

(D)She took me in(A) and gave me break(Bm)fast

(G)And(A) she said,

 

(Chorus)

 

“Do you come from a land down under?

Where women glow and men plunder?

Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?

You better run, you better take cover.”

 

Buying bread from a man in Brussels

He was six foot four and full of muscles

I said, “Do you speak-a my language?”

He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich

And he said,

 

“I come from a land down under

Where beer does flow and men chunder

Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder

You better run, you better take cover.”

 

Lying in a den in Bombay

With a slack jaw, and not much to say

I said to the man, “Are you trying to tempt me

Because I come from the land of plenty?”

And he said

 

“Oh! Do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)

Where women glow and men plunder?

Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?

You better run, you better take cover.”

I can’t get to sleep

Of diving in too deep

And possibly the complications

 

E/B                  B

Especially at night

I worry over situations

 

E/B                  B

I know will be alright

Perhaps its just my imagination

Day after day it reappears

Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear

 

G#/Ab                         A      ….B

Ghosts appear and fade away

 

 

E/B                  B

Alone between the sheets

 

D                     A

Only brings exasperation

 

E/B                              B

It’s time to walk the streets

 

D                     A

Smell the desperation

 

 

E/B                  B

At least there’s pretty lights

 

D                        A

And though there’s little variation

 

E/B                  B

It nullifies the night

 

D         ..A

From overkill…

Day after day it reappears

Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear

All I wish is to be alone;

E                  D

If he hears, he’ll knock all day,

C#m                                 B

I’ll be trapped, and here I’ll have to stay.

E                          D

I’ve done no harm, I keep to myself;

C#m                                        B

There’s nothing wrong with my state of mental health.

I like it here with my childhood friend;

A hundred miles, a hundred m[Am]iles, a hundred m[Dm]iles, a hundred m[Dm7]iles,

You can h[G7]ear the whistle blow a hundred m[C]iles.

 

Lord I’m one, Lord I’m two, Lord I’m three, Lord I’m four,

Lord I’m five hundred miles away from home.

Away from home, away from home, away from home, away from home,

Lord I’m five hundred miles away from home.

 

Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name,

Lord I can’t go back home this a way.

This a way, this a way, this a way, this a way,

Lord I can’t go back home this a way.

 

If you miss the train I’m on, you will know that I am gone.

You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles,

You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

So they w[C]on’t know w[G7]here I’m g[C]one.

 

Freight train, Freight train, goin’ round the bend,

Freight train, Freight train, comin’ back again,

One of these days turn that train around

And go back to my home town.

 

One more place I’d like to be,

One more place I’d lie to see,

To watch them old Blue Ridge Mountains climb,

When I ride old number nine.

 

When I die Lord, Bury me deep,

Down at the end of Chestnut street,

Where I can hear old number nine

As she comes down the line.

 

Freight train, Freight train, goin’ so fast,

Freight train, Freight train, goin’ so fast,

Please don’t tell what train I’m on

So they won’t know where I’m gone.

So, so ya think you can tell

Am                   G                         D

heaven from hell, blue skies from pain, can you tell a green field

C                    Am                       G

from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do ya think ya can tell?

C                       D                     Am

did they get you to trade, your hero’s for ghosts, hot ashes for trees

G                           D                 C

hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change, did you exchange,

Am                          G

a walk on part in the war, for a lead role in a cage?

 

 

 

 

C                               D

How I wish, how I wish you were here,

Am                                  G                  D

Were just two lost soles simming in a fish bowl, year after year,

C                                Am

Running over the same old ground, but have we found the same old fears,

G

wish you were here

Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake

Since youve gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but its you I cant replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby, please…

Oh, cant you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every breath you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
Ill be watching you

So, if an old friend I know, drops by to say hello,

would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Whiter Shade of Pale

C Am F Dm G7 Em G7 C F G7

 

C                                  Am

We skipped the light fandango

F                                                           Dm

and turned cartwheels ‘cross the floor

G7                                         Em     G7

I was feeling kind of sea sick

C                                               Am         Em

but the crowd called out for more

F                                            Dm

the room was humming harder

G7                               Em  G7

As the ceiling flew away

C                                             Am     Em

When we called out for another drink

F                                  Dm

the waiter brought a tray

 

Chorus:

G7                             C

And so it was that later

F                                            Dm

As the miller told his tale

G7                                              Em

That her face at first just ghostly

G7           C      F        C

Turned a whiter shade of pale

 

She said there is no reason

and the truth is plain to see

but I wandered through my playing cards

would not let her be

one of sixteen vessel virgins

who were leaving for the coast

And although my eyes were open

They might just as well?ve been closed

 

Chorus

AMERICA

Let us be lovers, we’ll marry our fortunes together

I’ve gone to look for America

 

Cmaj7                        D

Laughing on the bus, playing games with the faces

Cmaj7                                        D

She said the man in the gaberdine suit was a spy

G         F#          Em        A        D      Fmaj7

I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera

 

C         B         Am              G         F

Toss me a cigarette I think there’s one in my raincoat

C              B          Am

We smoked the last one an hour ago

G                  A       Em                    A

So I looked at the scenery, and she read her magazine

G    D    G A  B  CB Am

An the moon rose over an open field

 

C         B       Am             G            F

Cathy I’m lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping

C         B          Am

I’m empty and aching and I don’t know why

G

Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike

D   G       D        Cmaj7

They’ve all gone to look for America

D   G       D        Cmaj7

They’ve all gone to look for America

D   G       D        Cmaj7

They’ve all gone to look for America

G                            C                            G                  Am    Gsus   C/F#   D7/F#

I hear the drizzle of the rain,       like a memory it falls

G               D/F#     G     C                      Am      Gsus   D        G

Soft and warm, continuing                      tapping on my roof and walls

 

G                            C                            G                 Am      Gsus          C/F#    D7/F#

And from the shelter of my mind,     Through the window of my eyes

G             D/F#                       G                            C                Am         D                              C      G

I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets,    To England where my heart lies

 

(Hereճ where it goes to Dsus)

 

My mindճ distracted and diffused,     my thoughts are many miles away

 

They lie with you when youղe asleep,     and kiss you when you start your day

 

 

And a song I was writing is left undone       I donմ know why I spend my time

 

Writing songs I canմ believe     With words that tear and strain to rhyme

 

(Back to Dsus)

 

And so you see I have come to doubt      All that I once held as true

 

I stand alone without beliefs                   The only truth I know is you

 

 

And as I watch the drops of rain                            Weave their weary paths and die

 

I know that I am like the rain                  There but for the grace of you go I

Sounds of Silence

Paul Simon

 

H[Am]ello darkness my old fri[G]end,

I’ve come to talk with you ag[Am]ain.

Because a vi[C]sion softl[F]y creep[C]ing

Left it’s seed while I w[F]as sleep[C]ing,

And the vis[F]ion that was planted in my br[C]ain

Still rem[Am]ains

Wit[C]hin the s[G]ounds of si[Am]lence.

 

In restless dreams I walked alone,

Narrow streets of cobble stone.

‘Neath the halo of a street lamp,

I turned my collar to the cold and damp,

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light

That split the night

And touched the sounds of silence.

 

And in the naked light I saw

Ten thousand people, maybe more.

People talking without speaking,

People hearing without listening,

People writing songs that voices never shared,

And no one dared

Disturb the sounds of silence.

 

“Fools!” said I, “you do not know,

Silence like a cancer grows.

Hear my words that I might teach you,

Take my arms that I might reach you.”

But my words like silent raindrops fell…

And echoed in the wells of silence.

 

And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon gods they made.

And the sign flashed out its warning,

In the words that it was forming,

And the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls.”

And whispered in the sounds of silence.

 

 

The Boxer

 Paul Simon        

 

 

C                                                Am

I am just a poor boy, though my story’s seldom told

G

I have squandered my resistance

C

For a pocketful of mumbles such are promises

Am            G                  F

All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear

C      G    C

And disregards the rest

Am

When I left my home and family I was no more than a boy

G

In the company of strangers

Dm7        C

In the quiet of a railway station running scared

Am           G                F

Laying low seeking out the poorer quarters where the ragged people go

G              F    Em   Dm    C

Looking for the places only they would know

Am

Lie-la-lie

G

Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie

Am

Lie la lie

G                       F           G   C

Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

Am

Asking only workmans wages I come looking for a job

G

But I get no offers

Dm7              C

Just a come-on from the whores on seventh avenue

Am                 Dm7     G     F                                 C

I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome I took some comfort there

G               C

Ooo-la-la la la la la

 

Am

Lie-la-lie

G

Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie

Am

Lie la lie

G                       F           G   C

Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

 

C

Then I’m laying out my winter clothes

G7  C              Am

And wishing I was gone

G             Dm7      G7               G  C

Going home where the New York City winters aren’t bleeding me

Am

Leading me

G

Going Home

C                                            Am

In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade

G

And he carries the reminders

G7               C                        Dm7     G7        C

Of ev’ry glove that laid him down or cut him ‘till he cried out

Am

In his anger and his shame

G              F                              C

“I am Leaving, I am Leaving.”  But the Fighter still remains

 

G C  G      F      C

 

Am

Lie-la-lie

I Walk the Line

Johnny Cash

A        E7                           A

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

A         E7                     A

I keep my eyes wide open all the time.

A          D                         A

I keep the ends out for the tie that binds

A              E7               A

Because you’re mine, I walk the line

 

I find it very, very easy to be true

I find myself alone when each day is through

Yes, I’ll admit I’m a fool for you

Because you’re mine, I walk the line

 

As sure as night is dark and day is light

I keep you on my mind both day and night

And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right

Because you’re mine, I walk the line

 

You’ve got a way to keep me on your side

You give me cause for love that I can’t hide

For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide

Because you’re mine, I walk the line

Killed the only woman I loved, because she would not be my bride.

 

And only say, that you’ll be mine….

FIRST WE TAKE MANHATTAN

Leonard Cohen

 

Dm                             Am

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom

Dm                              Am

For trying to change the system from within

Dm                       Am

I’m coming now I’m coming to reward   them

G                  F  E                 Am

First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

 

Dm                        Am

I’m guided by a signal in the heavens

Dm                         Am

I’m guided by this birthmark on my skin

Dm                         Am

I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons

G                  F  E                 Am

First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

 

C                                G    F

I’d really like to live beside you, baby

C                             Am

I love your body and your spirit and your clothes

C                                       Am

But you see that line there moving through the station

G          F          E                      Am

I told you I told you I told you I was one of those

 

Dm                              Am

You loved me as a loser but now your worried that I just might win

Dm                             Am

You know the way to stop me but you don’t have the discipline

Dm                                Am

How many nights I prayed for this: to let my work begin

G                  F  E                 Am

First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

 

Dm                                   Am

I don’t like your fashion business, mister

Dm                                      Am

I don’t like these drugs that keep you thin

Dm                                  Am

I don’t like what happened to your sister

G                  F  E                 Am

First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin  (chorus)

 

Dm                                Am

And I thank you for those items that you sent me

Dm                         Am

The monkey end the plywood violin

Dm                               Am

I practiced every night and now I’m ready

G                  F  E                 Am

First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

 

Dm                            Am

Remember me, I used to live for music

Dm                                  Am

Remember me, I brought your groceries in

Dm                          Am

It’s Father’s Day and everybody’s wounded

G                  F  E                 Am

First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

 

 

Hallelujah

Leonard Cohen

 

G                   Em

I heard there was a secret chord

 

G                        Em

that David played and it pleased the Lord,

 

C                                                G

But you don’t really care for music do you.

 

G                           C               D

It goes like this the fourth the fifth,

 

Em                          C     D

the minor fall and the major lift

 

D                                            Em

The baffled king composing hallelujah

 

C                Em               C          G-D-G

Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja

 

 

 

Your faith was strong but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya

She tied you to a kitchen chair

She broke your throne, and she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

You say I took the name in vain

I don’t even know the name

But if I did, well really, what’s it to ya?

There’s a blaze of light in every word

It doesn’t matter which you heard

The holy or the broken Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

I did my best, it wasn’t much

I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch

I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool ya

And even though it all went wrong

I’ll stand before the Lord of Song

With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

 

So long marianne

Leonard Coen

G                                  Am

Come over to the window my little darling

 

C                             G

I’d like to try to read your palm

 

F                                   C

I used to think I was some kind of gypsy boy

 

Em                       D     D7

Before I let you take me home

 

G                       Em

Cho…Now so long Marianne  it’s time we began

 

D                         D7            G

To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

 

G                            Am

Well you know that I love to live with you

 

C                               G

But you make me forget so very much

 

F                         C

I forget to pray for the angels

 

Em                                     D      D7

And then the angels forget to pray for us

 

Cho…

G                   Am

We met when we were almost young

 

C                        G

Deep in the green Lilac park

F                               C

You held on to me like I was a crucifix

Em                            D    D7

As we went kneeling thru the dark

 

 

Suzanne

Leonard Cohen

 

 [G]Suzanne takes you down

To her place by the river,

You can [Am]hear the boats go by,

You can spend the night beside her,

And you [G]know that she’s half crazy,

And that’s why you want to be there;

And she [Bm]feeds you tea and oranges

That come [C]all the way from China;

And j[G]ust when you mean to tell her

That you have no love to give her,

She [Am]gets you on her wave-length

And lets the river answer

That you’ve [G]always been her lover.

 

{c:Chorus:}

And you [Bm]want to travel with her,

And you [C]want to travel blind,

And you [G]know that you can trust her,

For you’ve [Am]touched her perfect body

With your [G]mind.

 

And Jesus was a sailor

When He walked upon the water,

And he spent a long time watching

From a lonely wooden tower,

And when he knew for certain

Only drowning men could see Him,

He said, “All men shall be brothers, then,

Until the sea shall free them,”

But He himself was broken

Long before the sky would open,

Forsaken, almost human,

He sank beneath your wisdom

Like a stone.

 

{c:Chorus:}

And you want to travel with Him,

And you want to travel blind,

And you think you maybe trust Him,

For He’s touched your perfect body

With His mind.

 

Suzanne takes you down

To her place by the river,

You can hear the boats go by,

You can spend the night forever,

And the sun pours down like honey,

On our lady of the harbour;

And she shows you where to look

Amid the garbage and the flowers.

There are heroes in the seaweed,

There are children in the morning,

They are leaning out for love,

And they will lean that way forever,

While Suzanne holds the mirror.

 

{c:Chorus:}

And you want to travel with her,

And you want to travel blind,

And you think maybe you’ll trust her,

For you’ve touched her perfect body

With your mind.

Farewell Angelina

Joan Baez

 

C                      F            C    Csus4  C

Farewell Angelina, the bells of the crown

F          C   Csus4  C

Are being stolen by bandits, I must follow the sound

F           C (Baez=G) Csus4  C

The triangle tingles, the music plays slow

Am           Em        Am          Em    F          C Csus4  C

But farewell Angelina, the night is on fire, and I must go

 

There is no use in talking and there’s no need for blame

There is nothing to prove, everything still is the same

The table stands empty by the edge of the stream

But farewell Angelina, the sky’s changing colors, and I must leave

 

The jacks and the queens they have forsake the courtyard

Fifty-two gypsies now file past the guard

In the space where the duece and the ace once ran wild

Farewell Angelina, the sky is folding, I’ll see you after a while

 

See the cross-eyed pirate sit perched in the sun

Shooting tin cans with a sawed-off shotgun

And the coporels and the neighbors clap and cheer with each blast

But farewell Angelina, the sky is trembling, and I must leave fast

 

King Kong little elves in the rooftops they dance

Valentino-type tangos while the hero’s clean hands

Shut the eyes of the dead not to embarass anyone

Farewell Angelina, the sky is flooding over, and I must be gone

 

The camoflaged parrot, he flutters from fear

When something he doesn’t know about suddenly appears

What can not be imitated perfect must die

Farewell Angelina, the sky’s flooding over, and I must go where it is dry

 

Machine guns are roaring, puppets heave rocks

At misunderstood visions and at the faces of clocks

Call me any name you like, I will never deny it

But farewell Angelina, the sky is erupting, and I must go where it is quiet

 

 

FOREVER YOUNG

Bob Dylan

May God bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true

 

May you always do for others

And let others do for you

G

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung

And may you stay forever young

May you stay forever young

 

May you grow up to be righteous

May you grow up to be true

May you always know the truth

And see the lights surrounding you

May you always be courageous

Stand upright and be strong

And may you stay forever young

May you stay forever young

 

May your hands always be busy

May your feet always be swift

May you have a strong foundation

When the winds of changes shift

May your heart always be joyful

May your song always be sung

May you stay forever young

May you stay forever young

 

 

 

GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY

Bob Dylan

 

G                 C     D       G

Well, if you’re travellin’ in the north country fair,

G

Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline

C                G

Remember me to one who lives there

G              C    D       G

She once was a true love of mine.

 

Well, if you go in the snowflake storm

When the rivers freeze and summer ends

Please see she has a coat so warm

To keep her from the howlin’ winds.

 

Please see for me if her hair hangs long

If it rolls and flows all down her breast,

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,

That’s the way I remember her best.

 

I’m a wonderin’ if she remembers me at all

Many times I’ve often prayed

In the darkness of my night

In the brightness of my day.

 

So if you’re travellin’ in the north country fair,

Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline

Remember me to one who lives there,

She once was a true love of mine.

 

 

 

 

 

I Shall Be Released

Bob Dylan

A                            Bm

They say everything can be replaced

C#m        Bm              A     E7

Yet every distance is not near

A                  Bm

So I remember every face

C#m          Bm          A       E7

Of every man who put me here.

A                   Bm

I see my light come shining

C#m          Bm         A

From the west unto the east.

A

Any day now,

Bm

Any day now,

C#m Bm       A

I shall be released

 

They say every man needs protection.

They every man must fall.

Yet I swear I see my reflection,

Somewhere so high above the wall.

I see my light come shining,

>From the west unto the east.

Any day now,

Any day now,

I shall be released.

 

Well onder stands a man in this lonely crowd,

A man who swears he not to blame.

All day long I hear him cry shouting loud,

Calling out that he’s been framed.

I see my light come shining,

>From the west unto the east.

Any day now,

Any day now,

I shall be released.

 

 

 

It’s all over now, Baby Blue.

Bob Dylan

 

G                                           F          C

You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last

G                                 F       C

But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast

Dm                 F               C

Yonder stands your orphan with his gun

Dm            F           C

Crying like a fire in the sun

E(7)                    F      G

Look out the saints are coming through

Dm            F         C

And it’s all over now, Baby Blue.

 

The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense.

Take what you have gathered from coincidence.

The empty-handed painter from your streets

Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets.

This sky, too, is folding under you

And it’s all over now, Baby Blue.

 

All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home.

Your empty handed armies, they’re all going home.

The lover who just walked out your door

Has taken all his blankets from the floor.

The carpet, too, is moving under you

And it’s all over now, Baby Blue.

 

Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you.

Forget the dead you’ve left, they will not follow you.

The vagabond who’s rapping at your door

Is standing in the clothes that you once wore.

Strike another match, go start anew

And it’s all over now, Baby Blue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mama you been on my mind

Bob Dylan

 

Capo 4, standard tuning

 

C                         C7           C7/B Am

Perhaps it’s the color of the sun cut flat I’m  coverin’

D7

The crossroads I’m standing at

C              C/B        Am        Am/G F

Or maybe it’s the weather or something like that

C             G     C    (sometimes G, sometimes riff)

But mama you been on my mind

 

I don’t mean trouble please don’t put me down or get

upset I am not pleading

Or saying I can’t forget you

I do not pace the floor bow down and beg but yet

Mama you been on my mind

 

Even though my eyes are hazy and my thoughts they might be narrow

where you been don’t bother me

Or bring me down with sorrow

I don’t even mind who you’ll be waking with tomorrow

Mama you’re just on my mind

 

I’m not asking you to say words like yes or no please understand me

I have no place I’m calling you to go

I’m just whisperin’ to myself so I can’t pretend that I don’t know

Mama you are on my mind

 

When you wake up in the morning baby look inside your mirror

you know I won’t be next to you

You know I won’t be near

I’d just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear

As someone who has had you on his mind

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WEDDING SONG

Bob Dylan

 

(Am)I love you more than (C)ever, more than (G)time and more than love,

(Am)I love you more than (C)money and more (G)than the stars above,

(F)Love you more than (C)madness, more than (D)dreams upon the sea,

(Am)Love you more than (C)life itself, you (G)mean that much to me.

 

Ever since you walked right in, the circle’s been complete,

I’ve said goodbye to haunted rooms and faces in the street,

To the courtyard of the jester which is hidden from the sun,

I love you more than ever and I haven’t yet begun.

 

You breathed on me and made my life a richer one to live,

When I was deep in poverty you taught me how to give,

Dried the tears up from my dreams and pulled me from the hole,

Quenched my thirst and satisfied the burning in my soul.

 

You gave me babies one, two, three, what is more, you saved my life,

Eye for eye and tooth for tooth, your love cuts like a knife,

My thoughts of you don’t ever rest, they’d kill me if I lie,

I’d sacrifice the world for you and watch my senses die.

 

The tune that is yours and mine to play upon this earth,

We’ll play it out the best we know, whatever it is worth,

What’s lost is lost, we can’t regain what went down in the flood,

But happiness to me is you and I love you more than blood.

 

It’s never been my duty to remake the world at large,

Nor is it my intention to sound a battle charge,

‘Cause I love you more than all of that with a love that doesn’t bend,

And if there is eternity I’d love you there again.

 

Oh, can’t you see that you were born to stand by my side

And I was born to be with you, you were born to be my bride,

You’re the other half of what I am, you’re the missing piece

And I love you more than ever with that love that doesn’t cease.

 

You turn the tide on me each day and teach my eyes to see,

Just bein’ next to you is a natural thing for me

And I could never let you go, no matter what goes on,

‘Cause I love you more than ever now that the past is gone.

HOTEL CALIFORNIA

Eagles

 

Bm                        F#

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair

A                     E

Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air

G                         D

Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light

Em

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

F#

I had to stop for the night

 

Bm                               F#

There she stood in the doorway;  I heard the mission bell

A                                          E

And I was thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell

G                        D

Then she lit up a candle, and she showed me the way

Em                                   F#

There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say

Chorus :

G                        D

Welcome to the Hotel California.

Em                   Bm7

Such a lovely place, such a lovely face

G                               D

Plenty of room at the Hotel California

Em                                      F#

Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here

 

Her mind is Tiffany twisted, she got the Mercedes bends

She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends

How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat

Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

 

So I called up the captain;  “Please bring me my wine.”

“We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine”

And still those voices are calling from far away

Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say

 

CHORUS (with ending 2)

Jealous guy

Johjn Lennon

 

G       Em             D

I was dreaming of the past

Em  Em7

And my heart was beating fast

D    Em

I began to lose control

C

I began to lose control

G            F            C

I didn’t mean to hurt you

G           F     A#

I’m sorry that I made you cry

G         D       Em       C

I didn’t mean to hurt you

G

I’m just a jealous guy

 

I was feeling insecure

You might not love me any more

I was shivering inside

I was shivering inside

 

I didn’t mean to hurt you

I’m sorry that I made you cry

I didn’t mean to hurt you

I’m just a jealous guy

 

I was trying to catch your eyes

Thought that you were trying to hide

I was swallowing my pain

I was swallowing my pain

 

I didn’t mean to hurt you

I’m sorry that I made you cry

I didn’t mean to hurt you

I’m just a jealous guy

 

 

 

 

 

 

Killing me softly

Roberta Flack

 

Chorus:

 

Em                            Am

Strumming my pain with his fingers

D7                           G

singing my life with his words

Em                      A

killing me softly with his song

D           C

killing me softly with his song

G                   C

telling my whole life with his words.

Esus4

Killing me softly

E

with his song.

 

 

 

Am7          D

I heard he sang a good song

G          C

I heard he had a style

Am7        D

and so I came to see him

Em

and listen for a while.

Am7            D7

And there he was this young boy

G          H7

a stranger to my eyes.

 

 

(Chorus)

 

 

I felt all flushed with fever

embarrassed by the crowd.

I felt he found my letters

and read each one out loud.

I prayed that he would finish

but he just kept right on.

 

(Chorus)

 

He sang as if he knew me

in all my dark despair.

And then he looked right through me

“Delilah”

Tom Jones

 

Em                                                B      A

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window

 

Em                                          B     A

I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind

 

E   E7     Am

She was my woman

 

Em                   B                           E    D

As she betrayed me I watched, and went out of my mind

 

 

G             D

My, my, my, Delilah

 

D                G

Why, why, why, Delilah

 

G       G7       C                    Am

I could see that girl was no good for me

 

G                     D                       G    C

But I was lost like a slave that no one could free

 

 

At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting

I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door

She stood there laughing

I felt the knife in my hand, and she laughed no more

 

My, my, my, Delilah

Why, why, why, Delilah

 

Like before they came to break down the door

Forgive me, Delilah, I just couldn’t take any more

 

She stood there laughing

I felt the knife in my hand, and she laughed no more

 

My, my, my, Delilah

Why, why, why, Delilah

 

Like before they came to break down the door

Forgive me, Delilah, I just couldn’t take any more

Forgive me, Delilah, I just couldn’t take any more
