	  		     C                                              C   
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river,   
               Dm                                            Dm   
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night beside her,   
               C                                                         C   
And you know that she's half crazy, and that's why you want to be there,   
                Em                                                       F   
And she feeds you tea and oranges, that come all the way from China.   
        C                                                           Dm   
And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her,   
        C                                               Dm   
She gets you on her wavelength, and lets the river answer   
                     C   
That you've always been her lover   
 
tabchorus
Em F And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind. C And you know that she will trust you, Dm E E7 C Cause you touched her perfect body with your mind.

C C And Jesus was a sailor, when he walked upon the water. Dm Dm And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower. C C And when he knew for certain, only drowning men could see him, Em F He said, " All men will be sailors, then, Until the sea shall free them." C Dm But he himself was broken, long before the sky would open. C Foresaken, almost human. Dm C He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone.
tabchorus
Em F And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind. C And you think maybe you'll trust him, Dm C Cause he touched you perfect body with his mind.
tab
C C Now, Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river, Dm Dm She is wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters, C C And the sun pours down like honey, on our lady of the harbour. Em F And she shows you where to look, among the garbage and the flowers. C Dm There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning. C Dm They are leaning out for love, and they will lean that way forever. C While Suzanne holds the mirror.
tabchorus
Em F And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind. C And you know you can trust her, Dm E E7 C C For shes touched your perfect body with her mind.
