Song : B

Intro :
E
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

E
And Jesus was a sailor, when he walked upon the water
F#m
And he spent a long time watching, from his lonely wooden tower
E
And when he knew for certain, only drowning men could see him
G#m A
he said 'All men will be sailors then, until the sea shall free them
E F#m
But he himself was broken, long before the sky would open
E F#m E
Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

Chorus

G#m A
And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind
E
And you think maybe you'll trust him
A E
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

E
Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
F#m
She is wearing rags and feathers, from Salvation Army counters
E
And the sun pours down like honey, on our lady of the harbour
G#m A
And she shows you where to look, among the garbage and the flowers
E F#m
There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning
E F#m
They are leaning out for love, and they will lean that way forever
E
While Suzanne holds the mirror

Chorus

G#m A
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
E
And you know that you can trust her,
A E
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind
