There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I couldn't find the chords to this song anywhere, so I figured it out myself.  Not all 
chords are completely accurate, but it sounds great when you play it.  I did not, 
decipher the intro to the song. Help would be great!

Standard Tuning

Dm        Bb               Am                A
It was a rainy night, we took a taxi to your mother's home

Dm             Bb                Am                      A
She went to Florida and left you with your father's gun alone

Dm           G                     C         F
Upon her small white bed I fell into a dream

Bb                   Dm                    C                 
You stayed up all the night and watched me to see who in the world I might be

Dm                 Bb                   Am                  A
I am from the Sunday school, I sing soprano in the upstairs choir

Dm             Bb                Am                      A

Dm          G            C               F
You are a holy man on the FM radio

Bb               Dm                    C                   
I stayed up all the night and watched thee to see who in the world you might be

Dm                 Bb            Am                           
You called me beautiful, you called your mother, she was very tanned

Dm                        Bb                               Am 
So you packed your tent and you went to live out in the Arizona sand

Dm         G          C                       F
You are a refugee from a wealthy family

Bb                 Dm                C            Am 
You gave up all the golden factories to see who in the world you might be

Beautiful. I'm wondering why you don't put the Am at the end of each "to see" line (before the G) - as you do in the final verse. This song makes so much sense knowing it's about Leonard Cohen.
