Am                             F
It's four in the morning, the end of December
    Dm7                     Em      
I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
Am                      F
New York is cold, but I like where I'm living
        Dm7                     Em
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening.
Am                 Bm                   Am   
I hear that you're building your little house
               Bm
   deep in the desert
       Am         G           
You're living for nothing now,
                 Am                   G
   I hope you're keeping some kind of record

         C                                G
Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                             Am
She said that you gave it to her
                                  Bm      G
That night that you planned to go clear
F               Em
Did you ever go clear?

Am                               F
Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
     Dm7                      Em
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
Am                           F
You'd been to the station to meet every train
Dm7                       Em
And you came home without Lili Marlene


        Am         Bm         Am            Bm
And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
    Am            G    Am               G
And when she came back she was nobody's wife.


       C                                   G
Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
                    Am
One more thin gypsy thief
                  Bm        G
Well I see Jane's awake
F             Em
She sends her regards.

Am                         F
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
Dm7                 Em
What can I possibly say?
Am                         F
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
Dm7                      Em
I'm glad you stood in my way.

Am               Bm       Am          Bm
If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Am            G             Am           G
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

         C                           G
Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
                 Am                        Bm 
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

    C                                G
And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                             Am
She said that you gave it to her
                                  Bm       G
That night that you planned to go clear
F             Em
Sincerely, L. Cohen


Am  F   Dm7  Em
