[Verse 1]

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night beside her
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
That you've always been her lover


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

[Verse 2]

And Jesus was a sailor, when he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching, from his lonely wooden tower
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


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

[Verse 3]

Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers, from Salvation Army counters
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
While Suzanne holds the mirror


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

what would you say about putting an F#m instead of the A in this verse and his homologues among the song
But (E)he himself was broken, long be(A)fore the sky would open
It's just a proposal:D

There's an Esus4 after the E in the verses
