Leonard Cohen

60-е Блюзовая Для начинающих

One of Leonard's more melodious songs and as there are only 7 notes
using 5 holes I put it for beginners although with 4 long verses and a
chorus it's a test of breath control and stamina. I have introduced
rest notation eg. ^ as one per beat rest ^^^^ would be four beats.
Also time sig. eg. 4/4 ~~~~ means extend the note

 v.3   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,
       he said "all men will be sailors then 
       until the sea shall free them"
       but he himself was broken,
       long before the sky would open
       forsaken, almost human,
       he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

to chorus:-

v.4    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
       and she shows you where to look
       among the garbage and the flowers
       there are heroes in the seaweed,
       there are children in the morning,
       they are leaning out for love,
       they will lean that way for ever
       while Suzanne holds the mirror

to chorus for end.

Yours Harmusman
