Love Calls You By Your Name - chords, tab and comments
This song is from Cohen's 3. album "Songs of Love and Hate" (1971). The chords are not my interpretation, they are taken directly from the book of lyrics and chords I once was stupid enough to buy (the price exceeded the bloody album). My voice is now almost at the same level as Cohen's, so I can use the original harmonies without any tranposition.
you thought that it could never happen
to all the people you became
Bb G Bb G
your body lost in legends the beast so very tame
but here...right here
between the birthmark and the stain
between the ocean and your open vein
between the snowman and the rain
F D F
once again...once again
C G7 C
love calls you by your name
I caught the Cohen-virus back in the early seventies, coughing and covering all his songs from his first three albums. I was cured by being treated with rock, blues and country. I had a small relapse in '88 with the album "I'm Your Man" but now I suffer from only few lags and adverse effects.
