OLGA already has one version of this classic, but to my ears it doesn't
sound like the way it is played on Cohen's albums. This is a thoroughly
different transcription and hopefully a bit more accurate! Thanks.

                                 =========

VERSE2: 

And Jesus was a sailor
When He walked upon the water,
And he spent a long time watching
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see Him,
He said, "All men shall 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.

CHORUS 2:
 
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 mind.

VERSE 3:

Now Suzanne takes you down
And she leads you to the river,
She is wearing rags and feathers 
And the sun pours down like honey,
On our lady of the harbour.
And she shows you where to look
Amid the garbage and the flowers.
There are heroes in the seaweed,
There are children in the morning,
They are leaning out for love,
And they will lean that way forever,
While Suzanne holds the mirror.

CHORUS 3:

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