Intro: C x4

         C             G           F             C
        I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
                 C          G             Am
        You were talking so brave and so sweet;
        C         G           F           C
        Giving me head on the unmade bed,
                  F                       G
        While the limousines waiting the street.
        Am                         F
        Those were the reasons and that was New York,
                C                E            Am
        We were running for the money and the flesh.
            F                            C
        And that was called love for the workers in song,
                 F                           G
        Probably still is for those of them left.



            F                    C
           Ah, but you got away, didn't you babe,
           C                     E           Am
           You just turned your back on the crowd,
           F                    C
           You got away,I never once heard you say:
           F                   C
           "I need you,I don't need you,
           F                   C
           I need you, I don't need you"
           F                      Am        G
           And all of that jiving around.


           C            G           F             C
         I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel:
                  C             G           Am
         You were famous, your heart was a legend.
             C        G                  F            C
         You told me again you preferred handsome men
                 F                        G
         But for me you would make an exception.
             Am                          F
         And clenching your fist for the ones like us
                    C              E          Am
         Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
             F                          C
         You fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
                F                    G
         We are ugly but we have the music."


                   F             C
           Ah, but you got away, didn't you baby,
           C                     E           Am
           You just turned your back on the crowd,
           F                     C
           You got away, I never once heard you say:
             F                 C
           "I need you,I don't need you,
             F                 C
           I need you, I don't need you"
               F                    Am       G
           And all of that jiving around.



                  C            G           F             C
          I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
                  C              G             Am
          I can't keep track of each fallen robin.
              C          G           F              C
          I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
                 F                                    G
          That's all, I don't even think of you that often.
