[Verse 1]

     Am                       F
It's four in the morning, the end of December
    Dm7                     Em7
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                     Em7
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening
Am                 Bm                   Am                Bm
I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
Am                G
You're living for nothing now
              Am                   G
I hope you're keeping some kind of record


[Chorus 1]

         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               Em7
Did you ever go clear?


[Verse 2]

        Am                        F
Ah, the last time we saw you, you looked so much older
     Dm7                      Em7
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
      Am                     F
You'd been to the station to meet every train
    Dm7                   Em7
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


[Chorus 2]

        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               Em7
She sends her regards


[Verse 3]

    Am                     F
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer?
Dm7                 Em7
What can I possibly say?
  Am                       F
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
    Dm7                  Em7
I'm glad you stood in my way
Am               Bm     Am                Bm
If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Am                  Bm      Am                 G
Well, your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free


[Chorus 3]

         C                          G
Yes, and thanks for the trouble you took from her eyes
                 Am                        G
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             Em7
Sincerely, L. Cohen

No capo's fine, but I really like the sound of it with Capo II, what do you think?
