   / Rufus Wainwright                         /
  / Everybody Knows                          /
 / Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man (Soundtrack) /

This is one of the most fascinating lyrics I have ever read!
Something is NOT right, as it should've been. And nothing like these words
create a murky feeling like this.
It is definitely not the most beautiful version of this song, but I love it
for the whole idea of making this a tango. And Rufus does a fair job here :P

  | Dm        | %         | %         | %         |

  | %         | %         | %         | %(break)  |

3x Verse:
||: Dm        | %         | Bb7       | %         |

  | Dm        | %         | Bb7       | %         |

  | Gm        | A7        | C         | Dm        |

  | Eb7       | A7(break) | Dm        | %(break)  :|| 3x

                          In the bar of Eb7 the whole orchestra plays
                          this little run down to the break on A7:
                                             Eb7                A7

||: F         | %         | C         | %         |

  | Dm        | C    Bb   | F         | %         :||

3x Verse

In the second round, break on the last C, and end on a huge jazzy Dm13.

Everybody knows the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor and the rich get rich
That's how it goes
and everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody's got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died
Everybody's talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
and a long stem rose
and everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful
Ah, give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
without your clothes
and everybody knows

Everybody knows
Everybody knows
That's how it goes
and everybody knows

Everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
Everybody knows that you live forever
Ah, when you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it's moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
that will disclose
what everybody knows

And everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it's coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
before it blows
and everybody knows

Everybody knows
Everybody knows
That's how it goes
and everybody knows
