ANTHEM (L. Cohen) from Columbia Record's album THE FUTURE by LEONARD COHEN (CK 53226) Transcribed by Clay Boutilier 07/27/95 URL: http://www.cgl.uwaterloo.ca/~cjboutil NOTES: * capo instrument at 1st fret * all verses similar to 1st verse in chord structure Introduction: Am /G C The birds they sang at the break of day G Start again C C7 I heard them say E7 Don't dwell on what Am has passed away G Gsus4 G5 G7 G or what is yet to be. The wars they will be fought again The holy dove be caught again bought and sold and bought again the dove is never free. [chorus]: F Bb F Ring the bells that still can ring. Bb F Forget your perfect offering. C Bb F There is a crack, a crack, in everything. Dm G Gsus4 G That's how the light gets in. We asked for signs the signs were sent: the birth betrayed the marriage spent the widowhood of every government - signs for all to see. Can't run no more with the lawless crowd while the killers in high places say their prayers out loud. But they've summed up a thundercloud and they're going to hear from me. [chorus] 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 to love will come but like a refugee. [chorus] [chorus] that's how the light gets in that's how the light gets in [instrumental verse twice and fade]
