Emmy the Great
First Love

  Am       C/B    C
I remember how we met
         F         G
but your name I forget
         Am       C/B     C      G     E
like the door that I have kept unopened
    Am     C/B    C
I remember it was wet
         F             G
and the swelt and the sweat
        Am      C/B    C            G       E
and the shelter of the bed we we're clothed in

         F                  C
You were stroking me like a pet
        Am            G
but you didnt own me yet
        F           C                 G
and the tape in the cassette deck was choking
     E
Spat out a broken hallelujah

Am C/B C F G

Am C/B C E

         Am       C/B     C
But Ive seen the way the earth
           F            G
throws its aces with a curve
         Am      C/B     C
You were waiting for the words
       G       E
to come to yer.

        Am       C/B     C        F
Just to say that you prefer to be lonely
      G
to be cursed
       Am     C/B    C           G    E
and to do the very worst you can do.

       F                   C
Yeah I remember you like a verse
       Am             G
that I didnt want to learn
        F               C
I just looked into your eyes
      E
and I knew yer.

        F                 C
Now the thought of you is burnt
      Am            G              F               C 
       E
on my body from the first time you did rewind that line from Hallelujah.
The original Leonard Cohen version.

Am E Am E Am C F C

F                        C
Well I wish that I never met you that day
         Am                C
You said I have a room and music to play
F                    C
I have a room let me show you the way
Am                    C
I wish that Id never come
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/e/emmy-the-great/179672.html ]
F                            C
But now that I have, I would do it again
  Am                    C
I would forget like Id piss on a grave
  F                     C
I would forget that Id piss on a grave
        Am                       C                F      C
and the words as they came to my tongue were hallelujah. Hallelujah!
        Am              C
And the sky was so much bluer
   F        C
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
        Am                C
And the world was so much newer.

         F
You said I have a room
       C
at the top of the stairs
Am                   G
I have a room with a view
F                    C
I know we all have a cross that we bear
    Am                     G    E
and Id like to show it to you.

Am C/B C F G

Am C/B E

        F              C
And you left me in the light
        Am            G
and you met me in the light
       F          C                 E
and we only had a night between the two.

         F               C
You were waiting for the worst
         Am              G
You were listening for a curse
        F            C         E
but the only thing I heard was hallelujah.

F           C
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
        Am              C
And the sky was so much bluer
F           C
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
        Am                C
And the world was so much newer.

         F
you said I have a room
       C
at the top of the stairs.
Am                   G
I have a room with a view.
F                     C
I know we all have a cross that we bear
Am                         G
and Id like to give it to you.


F                          C
And I wont forget how the sky was set
       Am                   G
I said I have a place to go back to.
F               C
La La La I will have you yet
       Am                   G
I will carry you there if I have to.

     F         C     Am     G
No I wont forget no I wont.
     F         C     Am     G
No I wont forget no I wont
     F         C     Am     G
No I wont forget no I wont
     F         C    E
No I wont forget no.
