SO LONG MARIANNE  
Leonard Cohen


[Verse 1]

     A                               Bm       
Come over to the window,  my little darling
D                              A
I'd like to try to read your palm
G                                    D
I used to think I was some sort of gypsy boy
F#m                         E   Esus4 E E7 
   before I let you take me home


[Chorus]

    A                 F#m
Now so long, Marianne,    It's time that we began
    E   Esus4     E  E7     E Esus4       E      E7     A        Asus4      
to laugh      and cry   and cry      and laugh about it all again


[Verse 2]

          A                  Bm   
Well you know that I love to live with you
D                                A
 but you make me forget so very much
G                          D
 I forget to pray for the angels
             F#m                       E  sus4 E E7 
and then the angels forget to pray for us


[Chorus]

    A                 F#m
Now so long, Marianne,    It's time that we began
    E   Esus4     E  E7     E Esus4       E      E7     A        Asus4      
to laugh      and cry   and cry      and laugh about it all again


[Verse 3]

    A               Bm  
We met when we were almost young 
D                         A 
 deep in the green lilac park
G                                D
 You held on to me like I was a crucifix
F#m                                 E   Esus4 E E7 
   as we went kneeling through the dark


[Chorus]

    A                 F#m
Now so long, Marianne,    It's time that we began
    E   Esus4     E  E7     E Esus4       E      E7     A        Asus4      
to laugh      and cry   and cry      and laugh about it all again


[Verse 4]

      A                                 Bm
Your letters they all say that you're beside me now
D                        A
 then why do I feel so alone
G                                 D 
 I'm standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
    F#m                      E  Esus4 E E7
is fastening my ankle to a stone


[Chorus]

    A                 F#m
Now so long, Marianne,    It's time that we began
    E   Esus4     E  E7     E Esus4       E      E7     A        Asus4      
to laugh      and cry   and cry      and laugh about it all again


[Verse 5]

     A              Bm
For now I need your hidden love
D                         A
 I'm cold as a new razor blade
G                                D
 You left when I told you I was curious
F#m                         E   Esus4 E E7
   I never said that I was brave


[Chorus]

    A                 F#m
Now so long, Marianne,    It's time that we began
    E   Esus4     E  E7     E Esus4       E      E7     A        Asus4      
to laugh      and cry   and cry      and laugh about it all again


[Verse 6]

     A                     Bm
Oh, you are really such a pretty one
D                                   A 
 I see you've gone and changed your name again
G                              D
 And just when I climbed this whole mountainside
    F#m                     E  Esus4 E E7
to wash my eyelids in the rain


[Chorus]

    A                 F#m
Now so long, Marianne,    It's time that we began
    E   Esus4     E  E7     E Esus4       E      E7     A        Asus4      
to laugh      and cry   and cry      and laugh about it all again



(I found this extra verse written out somewhere. Not on the original recording from the Best Of... Disc)


   A                    Bm
Oh, your eyes, well, I forget your eyes
D                              A
 your body's at home in every sea
G                             D
 How come you gave away your news to everyone
F#m                              E Esus4 E E7
   that you said was a secret to me

Great tab. Thank you so much. As a bit of an aside, it sounds like a bit of transition between chords at the end of lines 1, 2, and 3 in the verses. I like to open the D string on the last strum of Bm, slide over to 001110 from A, and open the B string on the last strum of the D chord. Just a thought. Thanks again!
