Leonard Cohen - "I'm your man"
(Album: "I'm your man" - 1988)

Em     Bm     G     F#      Bm

[Verse 1]
            Em                            D          
If you want a lover I'll do anything you ask me to.
               Em                                 D          
And if you want another kind of love I'll wear a mask for you.
             Bm                                      G              
If you want a partner take my hand, or if you want to strike me down in anger,
A                     Bm
here I stand.  I'm your man.

[Verse 2]
             Em                            D
If you want a boxer I will step into the ring for you.
                        Em                            D
And if you want a jewish doctor, I'll examine every inch of you.
             Bm                                G               
If you want a driver climb inside. Or if you want a take me for a ride,
   A                      Bm   
You know you can.  I'm your man.

       D                     G                     A                     D
Ah, the moon's too bright, the chain's too tight, the beast won't go to sleep.
         F#m                                      Bm                 
I've been running through these promises to you that I made and I could not keep.
         F#                             Bm                 
Ah, but a man never got a women back, not by begging on his knees.
      G                          F#                  
Or I'd crawl to you, baby, and I'd fall at your feet,
       G                         F#
and I'd howl at your beauty like a dog in heat.
       G                         E                                  A
And I'd claw at your heart and I'd tear at your sheet. I'd say, please,
please, I'm your man.

Bm     Em     Bm     Em      D      Bm     G     F#      Bm

[Verse 3]
                    Em                                        D           
And if you've got to sleep for a moment on the road, I will steer for you.
                  Em                                D           
And if you want to walk the street alone, I'll disappear for you.
             Bm                                 G
If you want a father for your child, or only want to walk with me
                   A               Bm   
awhile across the sand,     I'm your man

This song also appeared on the Showtime Hit Series "The L Word" soundtrack. In the show, a character in the show (born a woman but dressed and identified as a man) did a "Drag King" lip synch show to it.

Nice transcription. I noticed a few discrepancies in the lyrics:

- "jewish doctor" is just "doctor" in my album version and the youtube version noted.
- "but a man never got a women back" should be "but a man never got a woman back" (singular).
- in the bridge, I would add a comma after "through" as there is a definite long pause at that point in the song.

Thanks again - nice job.
