Everybody Knows (Leonard Cohen)
 

Everybody [Dm]knows that the dice are loaded. Everybody [Bb]rolls with their fingers crossed. Everybody [Dm]knows the war is over. Everybody [Bb]knows the good guys lost. Everybody [Gm]knows the fight was [A]fixed: The poor stay [C]poor, the rich get [Dm]rich. That's how it [Eb]goes.[A] Everybody [Dm]knows. Everybody [Dm]knows that the boat is leaking. Everybody [Bb]knows the captain lied. Everybody [Dm]got this broken feeling like their [Bb]father or their dog just died. Everybody [Gm]talking to their [A]pockets. Everybody [C]wants a box of [Dm]choc'lates and a long stem [Eb]rose.[A] Everybody [Dm]knows. Everybody [Dm]knows that you love me, baby. Everybody [Bb]knows that you really do. Everybody [Dm]knows that you've been faithful, [Bb]give or take a night or two. Everybody [Gm]knows you've been discret,[A] But there were so many [C]people you just had to [Dm]meet without your [Eb]clothes.[A] And everybody [Dm]knows. {c:Chorus:} {soc} Everybody [F]knows. Everybody [C]knows. That's how things [Dm]goes.[C] [Bb]Everybody [F]knows. Everybody [F]knows. Everybody [C]knows. That's how it [Dm]goes.[C] [Bb]Everybody [F]knows. {eoc} [Dm]And everybody [Dm]knows that it's now or never. Everybody [Bb]knows that's me or you. And everybody [Dm]knows that you live forever when you've [Bb]done a line or two. Everybody [Gm]knows the deal is [A]rotten: Old black [C]Joe's still picking [Dm]cotton for your ribbon and [Eb]bows. [A] And everybody [Dm]knows. Everybody [Dm]knows that the plague is coming. Everybody [Bb]knows that it's moving fast. Everybody [Dm]knows that the naked man and the woman are just a [Bb]shining artifact of the past. Everybody [Gm]knows the scene is [A]dead, But there's gonna [C]be a meter on your [Dm]bed that will dis[Eb]close[A] What everybody [Dm]knows. And everybody [Dm]knows that you're in trouble. Everybody [Bb]knows what you've been through, from the bloody [Dm]cross on top of Calvary to the [Bb]beach of Malibu. Everybody [Gm]knows it's coming a[A]part: Take one [C]last look at this sacred [Dm]heart before it [Eb]blows. [A] And everybody [Dm]knows. {c:Chorus}
