Leonard Cohen - One of Us Cannot Be Wrong



Category: Undefined
Intro:
A

A                   Bm   
I lit a thin green candle
 D                      A
to make you jealous of me
         A                           Bm   
But the room just filled up with mosquitos
      D                       E 
they heard that my body was free
     F#m                   C#m                
Then I took the dust of a long sleepless night
       D                      A 
and I put it in your little shoe
      Bm                   G                
And then I confess that I tortured the dress
          Bm           A               G     A
that you wore for the world to look through   

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

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

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