My song "For Leonard Cohen"

Postby Davy Kettyles » Wed Oct 11, 2017 12:02 am

I wrote this song “For Leonard Cohen” to the memory of this late great man. It is made up of 30 of his song titles. I would like to donate to the charities that are being supported by the Cohen family. Can you help me get it to the right people? You can hear it by searching for Davy Kettyles on soundcloud.com.

For Leonard Cohen

The MASTER SONGster passed today; I heard it on the news
Now ALEXANDRA’S LEAVING and SUZANNE she looks confused
And the BIRD ON THE WIRE, sings the LADY MIDNIGHT, blues
For Leonard Cohen, Leonard Cohen.

Through THE WINDOW of THE FUTURE hear his songs and poetry
so YOU WANT IT DARKER, IN MY SECRET LIFE you see
THE PARTISAN of music, WHO BY FIRE speaks to me,
Leonard Cohen, that’s Leonard Cohen.

Chorus
Leonard Knows its ClOSING TIME
that he’s just PASSING THROUGH
FIRST WE TAKE MANHATTAN, then onto Berlin too.
SO LONG MARY-ANNE, THE GYPSY’S WIFE adieu
HALLELUJAH, Hallelujah

Leonard’s FAMOUS BLUE RAINCOAT, hangs waiting THERE FOR YOU
On the anvil of his fretboard, FINGER PRINTS and MEMORIES too,
In a HOTEL they call CHELSEA , he sings ,ALMOST LIKE THE BLUES
Leonard Cohen, that’s Leonard Cohen.

SISTERS OF MERCY sing the ANTHEM, EVERY BODY KNOWS
Their WAITING FOR A MIRACLE, in MORNING GLORY cloths
DID I EVER LOVE YOU, MY O MY we’ll never Know
Leonard Cohen, that’s Leonard Cohen
