      A         D                    E          A     D   A
Oh Sis-ters of Mer-cy they are not de-par-ted or gone
      C#m             G#m           C#m          G#m         E   Esus4 E
They were wait-ing for me when I thought that I just cant go on
      D                     A          G          F#m              E Esus4 E
And they brought me their com-fort and later they brought me their song
   A           D                        E           A     D
Oh I hope you into them you who've been trav-ling so long

G/D D/A A7 D    G/D D/A A7 D        A       E

Yes you who must leave everything
That you cannot control
It begins with your family,
but soon it comes round to your soul
Well I've been where you're hanging
I think I can see how you're pinned
When you're not feeling holy
Your loneliness says that your've sinned

They lay down beside me
I made my confession to them
They touched both my eyes
And I touched the dew on their hem
If your life is a leaf
That the seasons tear off and condemn
They will bind yoou with love
That is graceful and green as a stem

When I left they were sleeping
I hope you run into them soon
Dont turn on the lights
You can read their address by the moon
And you wont make me jealous
If I hear that they sweetened your night

D   E

          A            D
We werent lov-ers like that
       A                 E          A
And besides it would still be all right

We werent lovers like that
And besides it would still be all right


C#m       G#m       Esus4     F#m       G/D       D/A       A7

these chords are pretty good but they are a whole step down from the recording. if you want to play along with Cohen put a capo on the second fret.

Other guy is right about capo2. It also needs another "A" between the "D" and the "E" in the first and last line. Good overall though.
