The Stanger Song by Leonard Cohen The Stranger Leonard Cohen Chords: Intro: Em C Bb C G It's true that all the men you knew were dealers D Who said they were through with dealing Em Every time you gave them shelter D I know that kind of man Em It's hard to hold the hand of anyone D Em Who is reaching for the sky just to surrender D Em Who is reaching for the sky just to surrender C Bb C G And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind D You find he did not leave you very much Em Not even laughter D Em Like any dealer he was watching for the card D That is so high and wild Em He'll never need to deal another D Em He was just some Joseph looking for a manger D Em He was just some Joseph looking for a manger C Bb C And then leaning on your window sill G He'll say one day you caused his will D Em To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter D And then taking from his wallet Em An old schedule of trains, he'll say D Em I told you when I came I was a stranger D Em I told you when I came I was a stranger C Bb C But now another stranger seems G To want you to ignore his dreams D Em As though they were the burden of some other D O you've seen that man before Em His golden arm dispatching cards D Em But now it's rusted from the elbow to the finger D Em And he wants to trade the game he plays for shelter D Em Yes he wants to trade the game he knows for shelter C Bb C G Ah you hate to watch another tired man G Lay down his hand D Em Like he was giving up the holy game of poker D And while he talks his dreams to sleep Em You notice there's a highway D Em That is curling up like smoke above his shoulder D Em It's curling just like smoke above his shoulder C Bb C You tell him to come in sit down G But something makes you turn around D Em The door is open you can't close your shelter D You try the handle of the road Em It opens do not be afraid D Em It's you my love, you who are the stranger D Em It's you my love, you who are the stranger C Bb C Well, I've been waiting, I was sure G D We'd meet between the trains we're waiting for Em I think it's time to board another D Em Please understand, I never had a secret chart D To get me to the heart of this Em Or any other matter D Em When he talks like this you don't know what he's after D Em When he speaks like this, you don't know what he's after C Bb C Let's meet tomorrow if you choose G Upon the shore, beneath the bridge D Em That they are building on some endless river D Then he leaves the platform Em For the sleeping car that's warm D Em You realize, he's only advertising on more shelter D Em And it comes to you, he never was a stranger D Em And you say okay the bridge or someplace later C Bb C G And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind D You find he did not leave you very much Em Not even laughter D Em Like any dealer he was watching for the card D That is so high and wild Em He'll never need to deal another D Em He was just some Joseph looking for a manger D Em He was just some Joseph looking for a manger C Bb C And leaning on your window sill G He'll say one day you caused his will D Em To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter D And then taking from his wallet Em An old schedule of trains D Em He'll say, I told you when I came I was a stranger D Em I told you when I came I was a stranger D Em I told you when I came I was a stranger D Em I told you when I came I was a stranger...
