[Verse 1]

       Am7                       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
   Am7                     F
New York is cold, but I like where I'm living
          Dm7                   Em7
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening
 Am7                  Bm7                   Am7                Bm7
I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
 Am7                 G
You're living for nothing now
   Am7                                G
I hope you're keeping some kind of record


[Chorus]

           C                               G
Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                             Am7
She said that you gave it to her
                                    Bm7  G
That night that you planned to go clear
F                  Em7
Did you ever go clear?


[Verse 2]

         Am7                       F
Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
        Dm7                     Em7
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
       Am7                     F 
You'd been to the station to meet every train
       Dm7                        Em7
And you came home without Lili Marlene
          Am7         Bm7        Am7        Bm7 
And you treated my woman to a flake of your life

Am7                G   Am7               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
                      Am7
One more thin gypsy thief
                    Bm7  G F               Em7
Well I see Jane's awake   she sends her regards


[Verse 3]
     Am7                   F 
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
Dm7                  Em7
What can I possibly say?
Am7                         F
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
    Dm7                  Em7
I'm glad you stood in my way
Am7               Bm7          Am7         Bm7 
If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Am7                   G          Am7              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
                   Am7                        G
I thought it was there for good so I never tried
      C                                G
And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                              Am7
She said that you gave it to her
                                     Bm7  G
That night that you planned to go clear
 F               Em7
Sincerely, L  Cohen
