1. Suzanne


[Verse 1]

   E
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
        F#m
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night beside her
         E
And you know that she's half-crazy, but that's why you wanna be there
         G#m                               A
And she feeds you tea & oranges that come all the way from China
          E                                 F#m
And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her
          E                                F#m
Then she gets you on her wavelength & she lets the river answer
             E
That you've always been her lover


[Chorus]

         G#m                             A
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
         E
And you know that she will trust you,
             F#m                               E
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind


[Verse 2]

      E
And Jesus was a sailor, when he walked upon the water
        F#m
And he spent a long time watching, from his lonely wooden tower
     E
And when he knew for certain, only drowning men could see him
          G#m                           A
he said 'All men will be sailors then, until the sea shall free them
     E                           F#m
But he himself was broken, long before the sky would open
    E                    F#m                             E
Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone


[Chorus]

         G#m                             A
And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind
         E
And you think maybe you'll trust him
           F#m                               E
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.



[Verse 3]

    E
Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
       F#m
She is wearing rags and feathers, from Salvation Army counters
        E
And the sun pours down like honey, on our lady of the harbour
        G#m                                A
And she shows you where to look, among the garbage and the flowers
          E                                F#m
There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning
        E                                  F#m
They are leaning out for love, and they will lean that way forever
       E
While Suzanne holds the mirror


[Chorus]

           G#m                                             A
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
         E
And you know that you can trust her,
             F#m                              E
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind

2. Master Song


Capo 3rd fret

[Intro]

Em  G
Em  G

[Verse 1]

     F                         Em
I believe that you heard your master sing
    F              Em
when I was sick in bed.
     F                      Em
I suppose that he told you everything
        F                      Em
that I keep locked away in my head.
     F                Am
Your master took you travelling,
         C                     D
well at least that's what you said.
     G     G/F#      G      G/F#
And now do you come back to bring
      C                B
your prisoner wine and bread?

Em  G

[Verse 2]

     F               Em
You met him at some temple, where
     F                        Em
they take your clothes at the door.
        F                Em
He was just a numberless man in a chair
 F                            Em
who'd just come back from the war.
        F                  Am
And you wrap up his tired face in your hair
        C                   D
and he hands you the apple core.
         G           G/F#        G         G/F#
Then he touches your lips now so suddenly bare
            C                           B
of all the kisses we put on some time before.

Em  G

[Verse 3]

       F                  Em
And he gave you a German Shepherd to walk
       F                     Em
with a collar of leather and nails,
       F                       Em
and he never once made you explain or talk
      F                    Em
about all of the little details,
         F                 Am
such as who had a word and who had a rock,
    C                        D
and who had you through the mails.
          G        G/F#       G        G/F#
Now your love is a secret all over the block,
        C                                     B
and it never stops not even when your master fails

Em  G

[Verse 4]
        F                 Em
And he took you up in his aeroplane,
          F                Em
which he flew without any hands,
          F                Em
and you cruised above the ribbons of rain
      F                         Em
that drove the crowd from the stands.
         F                      Am
Then he killed the lights in a lonely Lane
        C               D
and, an ape with angel glands,
  G        G/F#   G       G/F#
erased the final wisps of pain
          C               B
with the music of rubber bands.

Em  G

[Verse 5]

     F              Em
And now I hear your master sing,
      F               Em
you kneel for him to come.
     F         Em
His body is a golden string
           F               Em
that your body is hanging from.
    F         Am
His body is a golden string,
    C              D
my body has grown numb.
    G      G/F#       G     G/F#
Oh now you hear your master sing,
       C             B
your shirt is all undone.

Em  G

[Verse 6]

     F               Em
And will you kneel beside this bed
        F                 Em
that we polished so long ago,
  F                 Em
before your master chose instead
  F                Em
to make my bed of snow?
     F                       Am
Your eyes are wild and your knuckles are red
             C               D
and you're speaking far too low.
      G        G/F#           G      G/F#
No I can't make out what your master said
  C                B
before he made you go.

Em  G

[Verse 7]

        F                   Em
Then I think you're playing far too rough
       F                      Em
for a lady who's been to the moon;
     F                    Em
I've lain by this window long enough
        F                Em
to get used to an empty room.
          F                      Am
And your love is some dust in an old man's cough
        C                     D
who is tapping his foot to a tune,
           G          G/F#      G        G/F#
and your thighs are a ruin, you want too much,
       C                              B
let's say you came back some time too soon.

Em  G

[Verse 8]

   F                Em
I loved your master perfectly
   F                      Em
I taught him all that he knew.
        F                     Em
He was starving in some deep mystery
        F                       Em
like a man who is sure what is true.
       F                    Am
And I sent you to him with my guarantee
         C                   D
I could teach him something new,
        G        G/F#           G      G/F#
and I taught him how you would long for me
    C                                       B
no matter what he said no matter what you'd do.

Em  G

[Verse 9]

    F                         Em
I believe that you heard your master sing
     F              Em
while I was sick in bed,
     F                     Em
I'm sure that he told you everything
        F                      Em
I must keep locked away in my head.
      F               Am
Your master took you travelling,
          C                    D
well at least that's what you said,
     G     G/F#      G       G/F#
And now do you come back to bring
       C                 B
your prisoner wine and bread?

3. Winter Lady

This song contains pretty unusual chords, so I'll tab them:
D11+: x 5 4 0 3 x
D11/A: x 0 4 0 3 x

[Intro]

Amaj7 D11+

[Verse 1]

D11+      Amaj7 D11+     C
Traveling lady   stay awhile
 D11+      Amaj7   D11+
Until the night is over
    D11+    Amaj7 D11+     C
I'm just a station on your way
   D11+     Amaj7     D11+
I know I am not your lover

[Chorus 1]

       D11/A          Am7
Well, I lived with a child of snow
D11/A         Am7
When I was a soldier
     D11/A          Am7
And I fought every man for her
  D11/A                Am7
Until the nights grew colder

[Verse 2]

    D11+    Amaj7    D11+      C
She used to wear her hair like you
   D11+     Amaj7     D11+
Except when she was sleeping
    D11+       Amaj7   D11+   C
And then she'd weave it on a loom
    D11+     Amaj7     D11+
Of smoke and gold and breathing

[Chorus 2]

   D11/A            Am7
And why are you so quiet now
 D11/A                 Am7
Standing there in the doorway?
    D11/A              Am7
You chose your journey long before
   D11/A            Am7
You came upon this highway

[Verse 3]

D11+      Amaj7 D11+  C
Traveling lady stay awhile
 D11+     Amaj7    D11+
Until the night is over
    D11+    Amaj7 D11+      C
I'm just a station on your way
  D11+      Amaj7     D11+
I know I am not your lover

4. The Stranger Song



Tuning: down one tone (D G C F A D)

[Intro]

F#sus4 F#m  F#sus4 F#m  F#sus4 F#m  F#sus4 F#m

[Verse 1]

F#m   D/A               C       D/A        A
It's true that all the men you knew were dealers
                                 E
Who said they were through with dealing
                           F#m F#sus4 F#m
Every time you gave them shelter
    E              Esus4  E
I know that kind of man
              F#m            F#sus4 F#m
It's hard to hold the hand of anyone
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
Who is reaching for the sky   just to surrender
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m F#sus4
Who is reaching for the sky just to surrender

[Verse 2]

F#m   D/A               C       D/A        A
And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind
                                 E
You find he did not leave you very much
         F#m F#sus4 F#m
Not even laughter
     E            Esus4  E              F#m
Like any dealer he was watching for the card
     F#sus4 F#m       E
That is so high and wild
                    E Esus4    F#m  F#sus4 F#m
He'll never need to deal another
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m F#sus4
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger

[Verse 3]

F#m   D/A               C       D/A
And then leaning on your window sill
      A
He'll say one day you caused his will
    E                                    F#m  F#sus4 F#m
To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter
          E                Esus4  E
And then taking from his wallet
       F#m  F#sus4 F#m
An old schedule of trains, he'll say
        E          Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
I told you when I came I was a stranger
        E          Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
I told you when I came I was a stranger

[Verse 4]

F#m   D/A          C       D/A
But now another stranger seems
   A
To want you to ignore his dreams
   E                                    F#m  F#sus4 F#m
As though they were the burden of some other
          E                Esus4 E
O you've seen that man before
          F#m              F#sus4 F#m
His golden arm dispatching cards
             E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
But now it's rusted from the elbow to the finger
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
And he wants to trade the game he plays for shelter
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
Yes he wants to trade the game he knows for shelter

[Verse 5]

F#m   D/A            C       D/A     A
Ah you hate to watch another tired man

Lay down his hand
              E                           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
Like he was giving up the holy game of
   E
And while he talks his dreams to sleep
      F#m              F#sus4 F#m
You notice there's a highway
        E                 Esus   E        F#m  F#sus4 F#m
That is curling up like smoke above his shoulder
        E                 Esus   E        F#m  F#sus4 F#m
It's curling just like smoke above his shoulder

[Verse 6]

F#m   D/A            C       D/A
You tell him to come in sit down
    A
But something makes you turn around
     E                              F#m  F#sus4 F#
The door is open you can't close your shelter
     E             Esus   E
You try the handle of the road
 F#m            F#sus4 F#m
It opens do not be afraid
     E             Esus   E        F#m  F#sus4 F#m
It's you my love, you who are the stranger
     E             Esus   E        F#m  F#sus4 F#m
It's you my love, you who are the stranger

[Verse 7]

F#m   D/A            C       D/A
Well, I've been waiting, I was sure
      A                                     E
We'd meet between the trains we're waiting for
                           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
I think it's time to board another
 E                  Esus   E               F#m
Please understand, I never had a secret chart
F#sus4 F#m        E
To get me to the heart of this
  Esus  E      F#m  F#sus4 F#m
Or any other matter
     E             Esus   E        F#m  F#sus4 F#m
When he talks like this you don't know what he's after
     E             Esus   E        F#m  F#sus4 F#m
When he speaks like this, you don't know what he's after

[Verse 8]

F#m   D/A            C       D/A
Let's meet tomorrow if you choose
 A
Upon the shore, beneath the bridge
      E                                 F#m  F#sus4 F#m
That they are building on some endless river
         E
Then he leaves the platform
Esus4 E          F#m
For the sleeping car that's warm
     F#sus4 F#m    E    Esus4      E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
You realize, he's only advertising one more shelter
        E               Esus4  E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
And it comes to you, he never was a stranger
        E               Esus4  E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
And you say okay the bridge or someplace later

[Verse 9]

F#m   D/A               C       D/A        A
And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind
                                 E
You find he did not leave you very much
         F#m F#sus4 F#m
Not even laughter
     E            Esus4  E              F#m
Like any dealer he was watching for the card
     F#sus4 F#m       E
That is so high and wild
                    E Esus4    F#m  F#sus4 F#m
He'll never need to deal another
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger
        E               Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m F#sus4
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger

[Verse 10]

F#m   D/A               C       D/A
And then leaning on your window sill
      A
He'll say one day you caused his will
    E                                    F#m  F#sus4 F#m
To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter
          E                Esus4  E
And then taking from his wallet
       F#m  F#sus4 F#m
An old schedule of trains, he'll say
        E          Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m F#sus4
I told you when I came I was a stranger
        E          Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m F#sus4
I told you when I came I was a stranger
        E          Esus4 E           F#m  F#sus4 F#m F#sus4
I told you when I came I was a stranger

D   E

[Verse 3]

          A          D          A    E           A     D   A

     C#m             G#m        C#m         G#m          E   Esus4 E

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]

Well you know that I love to live with you

 but you make me forget so very much
G                          D
 I forget to pray for the angels
             F#m                       Esus4 E E7
and then the angels forget to pray for us

    A               Bm
We met when we were almost young

 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

[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

[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]

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

[Verse 1]

   E                A
I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
     F#m
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
     D
yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
   A
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
    F#m
but now it's come to distances and both of us must try,
     D
your eyes are soft with sorrow,

[Chorus]

E                              A E
Hey, that's no way to say good bye.

[Verse 2]

        A
I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time,
F#m
walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
D
you know my love goes with you as your love stays with me,
     A
it's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea,
    F#m
but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
     D
your eyes are soft with sorrow,

[Chorus]

E                              A E
Hey, that's no way to say good bye.

but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
     D
your eyes are soft with sorrow,

 Am

[Verse 1]

      Am              C                   Em7           Bm
The stories of the street are mine, the Spanish voices laugh
Am                 C                       Em7                 Bm
The Cadillacs go creeping now through the night and the poison gas
    Am              F                  G      F#     B
And I lean from my window sill in this old hotel I chose
    E               A       E                D      A      Am
Yes one hand on my suicide, one hand on the rose

[Verse 2]

  Am                      C            Em7            Bm
I know you've heard it's over now and war must surely come
     Am             C                     Em             Bm
The cities they are broke in half and the middle men are gone
    Am             F                G        F#     B
But let me ask you one more time, o children of the dusk
          E               A                 E                D      A      Am
All these hunters who are shrieking now oh do they speak for us?

[Verse 3]

      Am                C                    Em7    Bm
And where do all these highways go, now that we are free?
    Am             C                        Em7            Bm
Why are the armies marching still that were coming home to me?
   Am              F             G         F#     B
O lady with your legs so fine, o stranger at your wheel
         E               A                   E                D      A      Am
You are locked into your suffering and your pleasures are the seal

[Verse 4]

    Am             C                 Em7              Bm
The age of lust is giving birth, and both the parents ask
    Am                 C              Em7                Bm
The nurse to tell them fairy tales on both sides of the glass
    Am              F               G         F#     B
And now the infant with his cord is hauled in like a kite
    E                    A           E                  D      A      Am
And one eye filled with blueprints, one eye filled with night

[Verse 5]

  Am              C           Em7               Bm
O come with me my little one, we will find that farm
    Am                 C               Em7                  Bm
And grow us grass and apples there and keep all the animals warm
    Am             F                   G       F#    B
And if by chance I wake at night and I ask you who I am
  E               A                     E                    D      A      Am
O take me to the slaughterhouse, I will wait there with the lamb

[Verse 6]

     Am              C            Em7             Bm
With one hand on the hexagram and one hand on the girl
  Am           C                 Em7              Bm
I balance on a wishing well that all men call the world
   Am              F                  G      F#         B
We are so small between the stars, so large against the sky
    E               A               E                D      A      Am
And lost among the subway crowds I try to catch your eye

9. Teachers


[Intro]

Bm

[Verse 1]

  Bm           G
I met a woman long ago
     Bm                  G
Her hair the black that black can go
     Bm                   G
Are you a teacher of the heart?
 Bm
Soft she answered no

Bm

[Verse 2]

  Bm            G
I met a girl across the sea
     Bm                 G
Her hair the gold that gold can be
    Bm            G
Are you a teacher of the heart?
  Bm
Yes, but not for thee

Bm

[Verse 3]

  Bm             G
I met a man who lost his mind
   Bm                 G
In some lost place I had to find
Bm             G        Bm
Follow me the wise man said

But he walked behind

Bm

[Verse 4]

   Bm            G
I walked into a hospital
       Bm                G
Where none was sick and none was well
Bm                 G
When at night the nurses left
   Bm
I could not walk at all

Bm

[Verse 5]

Bm                G
Morning came and then came noon
Bm              G
Dinner time a scalpel blade
Bm             G      Bm
Lay beside my silver spoon

Bm

[Verse 6]

Bm                 G
Some girls wander by mistake
  Bm                 G
Into the mess that scalpels make
    Bm               G
Are you the teachers of my heart?
    Bm
We teach old hearts to break

Bm

[Verse 7]

    Bm             G
One morning I woke up alone
     Bm               G
The hospital and the nurses gone
 Bm              G
Have I carved enough my Lord?
  Bm
Child, you are a bone

Bm

[Verse 8]

  Bm               G
I ate and ate and ate
     Bm              G
No I did not miss a plate, well
 Bm                G
How much do these suppers cost?
      Bm
We'll take it out in hate

Bm

[Verse 9]

   Bm             G
I spent my hatred everyplace
   Bm            G
On every work on every face
Bm               G
Someone gave me wishes
      Bm
And I wished for an embrace

Bm

[Verse 10]

Bm               G              Bm
Several girls embraced me, then
         G
I was embraced by men
Bm             G
Is my passion perfect?
    Bm
No, do it once again

Bm

[Verse 11]

Bm             G
I was handsome I was strong
   Bm                G
I knew the words of every song
Bm              G
Did my singing please you?
         Bm
No, the words you sang were wrong

Bm

[Verse 12]

Bm             G
Who is it whom I address
Bm                  G
Who takes down what I confess?
    Bm               G
Are you the teachers of my heart?
    Bm
We teach old hearts to rest

Bm

[Verse 13]

    Bm              G
Oh teachers are my lessons done?
  Bm          G
I cannot do another one
     Bm                       G
They laughed and laughed and said, Well child
Bm
Are your lessons done?
Bm
Are your lessons done?
Bm
Are your lessons done?

          A               A           Bm        Bm
 but the room just filled up with mosquitoes
       D            D         E       E
 they heard that my body was free.
       F#m       F#m       C#m            C#m
 Then I took the dust of a long sleepless night
        D         D           A      A
 and I put it in your little shoe
     Bm         Bm         G             G
 and then I confess that I tortured the dress
           Bm           A             G         G
 that you wore for the world to look through.

[Verse 2]

   A          A            Bm      Bm
 I showed my heart to the doctor
 D           D            A     A
 he said I'd just have to quit
      A            A          Bm        Bm
 then he wrote himself a perscription
      D             D           E       E
 and your name was mentioned in it.
      F#m          F#m       C#m     C#m
 Then he locked himself in a library shelf
           D          D        A      A
 with the details of our honeymoon
        Bm            Bm
 and I hear from the nurse
            G           G
 that he's gotten much worse
          Bm          A        G     G
 and his practice is all in a ruin.

[Verse 3]

   A           A             Bm        Bm
 I heard of a saint who had loved you
       D           D            A       A
 So I studied all night in his school
     A               A       Bm        Bm
 he taught that the duty of lovers
        D           D      E       E
 is to tarnish the golden rule.
          F#m        F#m
 And just when I was sure
           C#m           C#m
 that his teachings were pure
     D          D           A       A
 he drowned himself in the pool
      Bm      Bm            G           G
 his body is gone but back here on the lawn
      Bm         A        G     G
 his spirit continues to drool.

 An Eskimo showed me a movie
       D        D        A     A
 he'd recently taken of you
      A              A           Bm        Bm
 the poor man could hardly stop shivering,
      D            D            E       E
 his lips and his fingers were blue.
   F#m             F#m
I suppose that he froze
           C#m            C#m
 when the wind took your clothes
        D             D         A
 and I guess he just never got warm
          Bm             Bm           G           G
 but you stand there so nice in your blizzard of ice
            Bm          A        G     G
 o, please let me come into the storm.
