Field Commander Cohen - New Skin for the Old Ceremony

C x x x x x x x

C x        x  x   x      x  x   x   G    x x  x    Bb x x x 
  Field Commander Cohen, he was our most important spy. 
F x       x  x   x    x  x x 
  Wounded in the line of duty,
Dm x   x  x    x x  x x   C x    x x   Gm  x    x  x   
   parachuting acid into    diplomatic cocktail parties,
Bb  x    x  x  x  x   x x F   x  x      x   Cm   x x x
  urging Fidel Castro to abandon fields and castles. 
          Bb  x    x  x   Dm
  Leave it all and like a man,
     Bb              Dm 
come back to nothing special, 
        *Am               *Am
such as waiting rooms and ticket lines, 
*Dm             *Am
 silver bullet suicides, 
*Dm             *Am
and messianic ocean tides, 
*Dm                *Am
and racial roller-coaster rides 
      *Bb                       *A
and other forms of boredom advertised as poetry. 

E  E  E  E (just the bottom note)

Bm                       D
   I know you need your sleep now, 
   I know your life's been hard.
Bm                   D       
   But many men are falling, 
where you promised to stand guard. 

  C     x   x x x    x x     x   x    x    G    x    x    x   Bb  x x x
I never asked    but I heard you cast your lot along with the poor. 
F     x      x x x     x    x  x 
  But then I overheard your prayer, 
Dm     x      x    x   x  x   x  x 
  that you be this and nothing more
C      x         x    x   Gm   x   x  x    Bb x         x   x     
  than just some grateful faithful woman's    favourite singing 
x  x  x  x  
    F  x   x     x  Cm x x x         Bb x   x  x   Dm
the patron Saint of envy     and the grocer of despair, 
E                       A
working for the Yankee Dollar. 

I know you need your sleep now ... 

C    x   x  x        x  x    x   x     G        x   x x Bb x x x 
 Ah, lover come and lie with me, if my lover is who you are,
F    x  x    x   x    x    x   x  Dm x      x  x   x    x   x  x 
 and be your sweetest self awhile  until I ask for more, my child.
C     x   x   x     Gm     x  x   x  Bb     x        x  x x   x   x  x 
 Then let the other selves be wrong,  yeah, let them manifest and come
F     x     x     x  Cm x   x  x  
 till every taste is on the tongue,
Bb    x       x       x   Dm   x  x   x  
 till love is pierced and love is hung, 
Bb   x     x    x  Dm  x   x  x       
 and every kind of freedom done, then
*Am    *F    *Am    *F   *Am   *F
 oh my love, oh my love, oh my love,...
