>From ttgssa@eua.ericsson.se (Stefan Svala)

FIRST WE TAKE MANHATTAN (Leonard Cohen)

        Em                             Em
They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
       Em                              Em
For trying to change the system from within
       Em                       Em
I'm coming now I'm coming to reward   them
  D                  G  B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

       Em                        Em
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
       Em                         Em
I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
       Em                         Em
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
  D                  G  B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    G                                D    G
I'd really like to live beside you, baby
              G                             Em
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
         G                                       Em
But you see that line there moving through the station
    D          G          B                      Em
I told you I told you I told you I was one of those

       Em                              Em
You loved me as a loser but now your worried that I just might win
     Em                             Em
You know the way to stop me but you don't have the discipline
     Em                                Em
How many nights I prayed for this: to let my work begin
  D                  G  B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

Em                                   Em
I don't like your fashion business, mister
Em                                      Em
I don't like these drugs that keep you thin
Em                                  Em
I don't like what happened to your sister
  D                  G  B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin  (chorus)

       Em                                Em
And I thank you for those items that you sent me
    Em                         Em
The monkey end the plywood violin
    Em                               Em
I practiced every night and now I'm ready
  D                  G  B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

   Em                            Em
Remember me, I used to live for music
   Em                                  Em
Remember me, I brought your groceries in
       Em                          Em
It's Father's Day and everybody's wounded
  D                  G  B                 Em
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin
