Suzanne

E 
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river 
A 
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night beside her 
E 
And you know that she's half-crazy, but that's why you wanna be there 
G#m A 
And she feeds you tea & oranges that come all the way from China 
E A 
And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her 
E F#m 
Then she gets you on her wavelength & she lets the river answer 
E 
That you've always been her lover
 
Chorus 
------ 
G#m A 
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind 
E 
And you know that she will trust you, 
A E 
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind 

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 

And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind 
And you think maybe you'll trust him, 
For he's touched your perfect body with his (E)mind 

Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river 
She is wearing rags & feathers from Salvation Army counter 
And the sun pours down like honey on Our Lady of the Harbor 
And she shows you where to look among the garbage & 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 forever 
While Suzanne holds the mirror 

And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind 
And you know you can trust her, 
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind
