Sisters Of Mercy.
Leonard Cohen.
Album: Songs Of.
Capo 2.
       A          D       
Oh the sisters of mercy,
     A         E         A   D A
They are not departed or gone,
          G#7        C#7
They were waiting for me,
       C#m            G#7           E A E
When I thought that I just can't go on,
         D/E              G#maj7
And they brought me their comfort,
    Gmaj7      F#m             E    A/E E
And later they brought me this song.

     A            D/E
Oh I hope you run into them, 
A               E            A   D A6 E
You who've been traveling so long.

    A            D          A
Yes you who must leave everything,
         E         A   D A
That you cannot control,
   C#m              G#m
It begins with your family,
    C#m           G#m           E
But soon it comes round to your soul,
           D                 Amaj7
Well, I've been where you're hanging,
  G           F#m            E
I think I can see how you're pinned,
            A           D
When you're not feeling holy,
     A          E                A     D A6 E
Your loneliness says that you've sinned.

     A          D
They lay down beside me,
  A          E7         A    D A
I made my confession to them,
E    G#m             C#m
They touched both my eyes,
   G#m            G#m          E
And I touched the dew on their hem,
        D/E       A
If your life is a leaf,
         G            F#m     E
That the seasons tear off and condemn,
          A             D
They will bind you with love,
        A            E          E   D A E
That is graceful and green as a stem.

       A              D
When I left they were sleeping,
  A            E         A    D A
I hope you run into them soon,
      C#m         G#m7
Don't turn on the lights,
        C#m        G#m7           E
You can read their address by the moon,
        D/E           A
And you won't make me jealous,
     G              F#m            E    B7 E
If I hear that they sweetened your night,
We weren't lovers like that,
D     A              E            A    D E
And besides it would still be all right,
           A           D/E
We weren't lovers like that,
    A                E            A
And besides it would still be all right.
