Field Commander Cohen - New Skin for the Old Ceremony


C x x x x x x x

C x x x x x x x G x x x Bb x x x
Field Commander Cohen, he was our most important spy.
F x x x x x x x
Wounded in the line of duty,
Dm x x x x x x x C x x x Gm x x x
parachuting acid into diplomatic cocktail parties,
Bb x x x x x x x F x x x Cm x x x
urging Fidel Castro to abandon fields and castles.
Bb x x x Dm
Leave it all and like a man,
Bb Dm
come back to nothing special,
*Am *Am
such as waiting rooms and ticket lines,
*Dm *Am
silver bullet suicides,
*Dm *Am
and messianic ocean tides,
*Dm *Am
and racial roller-coaster rides
*Bb *A
and other forms of boredom advertised as poetry.

E E E E (just the bottom note)

Bm D
I know you need your sleep now,
A
I know your life's been hard.
Bm D
But many men are falling,
A
where you promised to stand guard.

C x x x x x x x x x G x x x Bb x x x
I never asked but I heard you cast your lot along with the poor.
F x x x x x x x
But then I overheard your prayer,
Dm x x x x x x x
that you be this and nothing more
C x x x Gm x x x Bb x x x
than just some grateful faithful woman's favourite singing
x x x x
millionaire,
F x x x Cm x x x Bb x x x Dm
the patron Saint of envy and the grocer of despair,
E A
working for the Yankee Dollar.

E E E E
Bm
I know you need your sleep now ...

C x x x x x x x G x x x Bb x x x
Ah, lover come and lie with me, if my lover is who you are,
F x x x x x x x Dm x x x x x x x
and be your sweetest self awhile until I ask for more, my child.
C x x x Gm x x x Bb x x x x x x x
Then let the other selves be wrong, yeah, let them manifest and come
F x x x Cm x x x
till every taste is on the tongue,
Bb x x x Dm x x x
till love is pierced and love is hung,
Bb x x x Dm x x x
and every kind of freedom done, then
*Am *F *Am *F *Am *F
oh my love, oh my love, oh my love,...
