Famous Blue Raincoat Lyrics

Famous Blue Raincoat (《莱奥纳德·科恩:我是你的男人》纪录片插曲) - The Handsome Family

Its four in the morning

The end of december

 

I'm writing you now

Just to see if you're better

 

New york is cold

But I like where I'm living

Theres music on clinton street

All through the evening

 

I hear that you're building

Your little house

Deep in the desert

 

You're living for nothing now

 

I hope you're keeping

Some kind of record

 

Yes and jane came

By with a lock of your hair

 

She said that you gave it to her

 

That night that you planned

To go clear

 

Did you ever go clear

 

Ah the last time we saw you

You looked so much older

Your famous blue raincoat

Was torn at the shoulder

You'd been to the station

To meet every train

 

And you came home

Without lili marlene

 

And you treated my woman

To a flake of your life

 

And when she came back

 

She was nobodys wife

Well I see you

There with the rose

In your teeth

 

One more thin gypsy thief

 

Well I see janes awake

 

She sends her regards

 

And what can I tell you

My brother my killer

What can I possibly say

 

I guess that I miss you

I guess I forgive you

I'm glad you stood in my way

 

If you ever come by here

For jane or for me

 

Your enemy is sleeping

 

And his woman is free

Yes and thanks for the trouble

You took from her eyes

 

I thought it was there

 

For good so I never tried

 

And jane came

 

By with a lock of your hair

 

She said that you gave it to her

 

That you planned to go clear

 

Sincerely L Cohen
