Leonard Cohen - Almost Like the Blues 

Intro Dm Dm Dm Dm Gm Gm Dm Dm Am Gm Dm Dm 

  Dm 
I saw some people starving 
          Dm 
There was murder, there was rape 
      Dm 
Their villages were burning 
          Dm 
They were trying to escape 
  Gm 
I couldn't meet their glances 
      Gm 
I was staring at my shoes 
       Dm 
It was acid, it was tragic 
       Dm 
It was almost like the blues 
 Am     Gm                          Dm     Dm 
Woo-oo-ooo It was almost like the blues 


  Dm 
I have to die a little 
   Dm 
Between each murderous thought 
    Dm 
And when I'm finished thinking 
  Dm 
I have to die a lot 
        Gm 
There's torture and there's killing 
            Gm 
And there's all my bad reviews 
    Dm 
The war, the children missing 
           Dm 
Lord, it's almost like the blues 
 Am  Gm                        Dm        Dm 
Woo-ooo It's almost like the    blues 


     Dm 
So I let my heart get frozen 
   Dm 
To keep away the rot 
   Dm 
My father says I'm chosen  
   Dm 
My mother says I'm not 
  Gm 
I listened to their story 
       Gm 
Of the Gypsies and the Jews 
             Dm 
It was good,    it wasn't boring 
       Dm 
It was almost like the blues 
 Am           Gm                          Dm        Dm 
   Woo-oo-oo-ooo It was almost like the    blues 


      Dm 
There is no G-d in Heaven 
          Dm 
And there is no Hell below 
   Dm 
So says the great professor 
   Dm 
Of all there is to know 
         Gm 
But I've had the invitation 
       Gm 
That a sinner can't refuse 
         Dm 
And it's almost like salvation 
     Dm 
It's almost like the blues 
 Am         Gm                        Dm        Dm 
Wooo-oo-oo-ooo It's almost like the    blues 
 Am         Gm                   Dm        Dm 
Wooo-oo-oo-ooo Almost like the    blues 
 Am           Gm                   Dm         Dm Dm Dm 
   Woo-oo-oo-ooo, Almost like the    blues

Leonard Cohen - Almost Like the Blues 

12-bar minor blues: 
Dm Dm Dm Dm Gm Gm Dm Dm Am Gm Dm Dm 

I saw some people starving 
There was murder, there was rape 
Their villages were burning 
They were trying to escape 
I couldn't meet their glances 
I was staring at my shoes 
It was acid, it was tragic 
It was almost like the blues 
Woo-oo-ooo It was almost like the blues 

I have to die a little 
Between each murderous thought 
And when I'm finished thinking 
I have to die a lot 
There's torture and there's killing 
And there's all my bad reviews 
The war, the children missing 
Lord, it's almost like the blues 
Woo-ooo It's almost like the blues 

So I let my heart get frozen 
To keep away the rot 
My father says I'm chosen  
My mother says I'm not 
I listened to their story 
Of the Gypsies and the Jews 
It was good, it wasn't boring 
It was almost like the blues 
Woo-oo-oo-ooo It was almost like the blues 

There is no G-d in Heaven 
And there is no Hell below 
So says the great professor 
Of all there is to know 
But I've had the invitation 
That a sinner can't refuse 
And it's almost like salvation 
It's almost like the blues 
Woo-oo-oo-ooo It's almost like the blues 
Woo-oo-oo-ooo Almost like the blues 
Woo-oo-oo-ooo, Almost like the blues
