About this tab version
Simple lyrics and chords. Whole song. Was this info helpful? Yes No
On The Level, from Leonard Cohen. Album You Want It Darker.

So he plays it on the piano and adds stuff up, but at least this is the structure and the chords so you can
build up from there.
NB : some chords might be slightly misplaced (one or two syllabes off), I apologize for that.


[Verse 1]
Eb
I knew that it was wrong
  Eb
I didn't have a doubt
      Eb                 Ab
I was dying to get back home
                       Eb
And you were starting out
                   Eb
I said I'd best be moving on
Eb
You said we have all day
                       Ab
You smiled at me like I was young
                  Eb
It took my breath away


[Bridge]
     Cm
Your crazy fragrance all around
     Eb
Your secrets all in view
   Cm
My lost, my lost was saying found
   Bb
My don't was saying do


[Chorus]
      Eb
Let's keep it on the level
       Eb
When I walked away from you
  Eb
I turned my back on the devil
 Eb                     Ab        Eb
Turned my back on the angel, too

                    Bb
They oughta give my heart a medal
    Bb
For letting go of you
       Ab
When I turned my back on the devil
Ab                    Eb
Turned my back on the angel, too


[Verse 2]
       Eb
Now I'm living in this temple
           Eb
Where they tell you what to do
                        Ab
I'm old and I've had to settle
                 Eb
On a different point of view
           Eb
I was fighting with temptation
           Eb
But I didn't want to win
   Eb               Ab
A man like me don't like to see
     Eb
Temptation caving in


[Bridge]
     Cm
Your crazy fragrance all around
     Eb
Your secrets all in view
   Cm
My lost, my lost was saying found
   Bb
My don't was saying do


[Chorus]
          Eb
Let's keep it on the level
       Eb
When I walked away from you
  Eb
I turned my back on the devil
 Eb                     Ab        Eb
Turned my back on the angel, too

                    Bb
They oughta give my heart a medal
    Bb
For letting go of you
       Ab
When I turned my back on the devil
Ab                    Eb
Turned my back on the angel, too

                    Bb
They oughta give my heart a medal
    Bb
For letting go of you
       Ab
When I turned my back on the devil
Ab                    Eb
Turned my back on the angel, too
