A friend is learning this song (from the Johnny Cash anthology on PBS) and wants the chords to the B part. Any help out there? I told her the 'Cat would know! Thanks, muchly.

I think a certain Mr Cohen may have had an input on this one.

I caught a bio on Johnny Cash the other night (Wonder if it was the same one...)

He's great... but he owes Leonard an apology...

Rick, that's just the A part... the request was for the B (or bridge, I guess?) Don't have the recording, so I can't help.

Cheers,
Michael

Michael, I think Rick posted the bridge. The verses go something like
1-5-4-4
1-5-1-1
N'est-ce pas?

Ebbie, PM your snailmail address to me, and I'll mail you a copy of the music from the "Leonard Cohen Folk" songbook.

It appears that my response didn't make it through the Submit process- but I did answer...

I mentioned that I was out and didn't get to see the show but this friend did and she brought it to music the other night. If I had ever heard the song before, it's been a long time.

Rangeroger, thanks for your PM response to me, and thanks for your offer.

Thanks, guys.

"Only in Canada could a guy like me win this award"

-Leonard Cohen accepting his "Best Male Vocalist" Juno award-

And well, it wasn't a matter of "trying to match up"... His cover of the song was just lousy... From the arrangement... to the presentation...
