                VERSE 1

      Am                       F
It's four in the morning, the end of December
      Dm7                   Em7
I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
Am                       F
New York is cold, but I like where I'm living
        Dm7                     Em7
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening
Am                  Bm                   Am                Bm
I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
Am                 G                          Am                   G
You're living for nothing now; I hope you're keeping some kind of record


CHORUS 1

           C                               G
Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                             Am
She said that you gave it to her
                                    Bm  G
That night that you planned to go clear
F                  Em7
Did you ever go clear?


VERSE 2

        Am                       F
Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
      Dm7                     Em7
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
      Am                     F
You'd been to the station to meet every train
Dm7                       Em7
And you came home without Lili Marlene
        Am         Bm         Am            Bm
And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
Am                G     Am              G
And when she came back she was nobody's wife


CHORUS 2

         C                                   G
Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
                      Am
One more thin gypsy thief
                    Bm  G F               Em7
Well I see Jane's awake   she sends her regards


VERSE 3

     Am                     F
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
Dm7                 Em7
What can I possibly say?
  Am                       F
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
Dm7                      Em7
I'm glad you stood in my way
 Am              Bm      Am                 Bm
If you ever come by here,   for Jane or for me
 Am                 G        Am                  G
Well, your enemy is sleeping,   and his woman is free


CHORUS 3

         C                           G
Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
                   Am                        G
I thought it was there for good so I never tried
      C                                G
And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                              Am
She said that you gave it to her
                                     Bm  G
That night that you planned to go clear
 F               Em7
Sincerely, L  Cohen
