C C2 Csus4 C x2

  C             Em            F               C 
Tomorrow is the Yuletide, but I’m not feeling jolly
  F               Am              F            G7                        
I think I’m gonna stay inside and wallow in my melancholy
    C             Em            F                  C
Put on some music guaranteed to keep the teardrops flowing
    F                  G7                C
I’m spending Christmas Eve, with Leonard Cohen

C C2 Csus4 C x2

    C              Em              F               C 
I’m stocking up on vodka, sleeping pills and Pepto-Bismol
    F               Am                 F             G7                        
I’m drinking to the future, though The Future, is so dark and dismal
     C               Em                F              C
It’s pretty much the saddest sound the world has ever known
         F                  G7               C     C7
Yes, I’m spending Christmas Eve with Leonard Cohen

[Bridge]

      F              Dm                  C                C7
Well, Neil Young can bring you down, And Jonie Mitchell’s blue
    F                    Em              Dm               G   G G7 G6
But when you’ve hit rock bottom just one folk singer will do
           F              Dm               Em            Am
When I put on that famous Blue Raincoat, I wanna slit my wrists, yes
     F             G7            C
It’s going to be a Leonard Cohen Christmas

C C2 Csus4 C x2

   C                 Em               F               C 
Of course there’s Hallelujah, you all know that one I guess
           F              Am       F            G7                        
But that’s really for the amateur, not the clinically depressed
    C                   Em              F             C
But Last Year’s Man and Avalanche, they always get me going
         F                  G7               C
When I’m spending Christmas Eve with Leonard Cohen

[Solo]

[Bridge]

      F              Dm          C               C7
Well, I can hear the carolers outside my bedroom walls
    F            Em                Dm                 G   G G7 G6
The old familiar chestnuts, Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls
       F                   Dm              Em           Am
But no one-horse sleigh or Mel Tormé, will ever make my wish list
    F           G7            C
I’m having me a Leonard Cohen Christmas

C C2 Csus4 C x2

 C                Em                F           C 
So, First We Take Manhattan, then it’s So Long Marianne
    F               Am               F              G7                        
The Dress Rehearsal Rag and then the second side of I’m Your Man
    C                  Em             F                 C
The festive lights are everywhere and Rudolph’s nose is glowing
         F                  G7               Am    Fmaj7
But, I’m spending Christmas Eve with Leonard Cohen
    F         Dm              Em               Am
The Poet Laureate for all the lonesome and the listless
     F             G7            C
It’s going to be a Leonard Cohen Christ-mas
