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
