                Intro: E . . . Esus4 E |E . . . Esus4 E|E . . . Esus4 E|

   E               * E
Suzanne takes you down
         E             * E
To her place near the river
         F#m              * F#m
You can hear the boats go by
          F#m              *  F#m
You can spend the night beside her
          E                    * E
And you know that she's half crazy
            E              *    E
But that's why you want to be there
         G#m              *  G#m
And she feeds you tea and oranges
           A                 * A
That come all the way from China
          E                *    E
And just when you mean to tell her
          F#m             *   F#m
That you have no love to give her
          E               *   E
Then she gets you on her wavelength
        F#m            * F#m
And she lets the river answer
            E                * E   Esus4  E   Esus4  E
That you've always been her lover
         G#m            * G#m
And you want to travel with her
         A               * A
And you want to travel blind
         E                   *  E
And you know that she will trust you
             F#m               * F#m           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
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 mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
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
Among 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
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.
