Baez, Joan - Suzanne Lyrics

Suzzane takes you down
To a place by the river.
You can see the boats go by,
You could spend the night forever.
And you know that she's half crazy
And that's why you want to be there.
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China.
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her,
She takes you in her arms
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover.

And you want to travel with her,
And you want to travel blind.
And you think you'll maybe trust her
'Cause she's touched you,
And she's moved you,
And she's kind.

Jesus was a sailor
When he walked up the water.
He spent a long time watching
From a lonely wooden tower.
And when He knew for certain
Only drowning men could see Him,
He said, "All men shall be sailors then,
Until the sea shall free them."
He Himself was broken
Long before the sky was open;
Forsaken, almost human,
He sank beneath your wisdom like a star.

And you want to travel with Him,
And you want to travel blind.
And you think you'll maybe trust Him
'Cause He's touched you
And He's moved you,
And He's kind.

Suzzane takes your hand,
And she leads you to the river.
She's wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters.
And the sun shines down in full
On our lady of the harbor.
And she shows you where to look
Beneath the garbage and the flowers.
There are heroes in the seaweed,
There are children in the morning.
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her,
And you want to travel blind.
And you think you'll maybe trust her
'Cause she's touched you,
And she's moved you,
And she's kind.

  25. Want To Say AD REM

    Beautiful voice. 1 of my favourite songs by Joan Baez is "Many crimes of Cain" dedicated as a part of movie to real history of murdering the priest supporting Polish Solidarity movement, by communist Secret Services in extremely cruel way. The voice and melody IMO are beautiful too. The movie "Kill the Priest"

    kathy stefani

    I can guarantee you that someday you will get old and ugly, but you really have no idea what beauty is.

    Céline Allais

    You sound hateful and stupid.

    Joan's life completely full of integrity.

  42. pcpete911

    Today's pop stars cannot get near to this raw talent , no boob jobs , no
    media spin. No sexy looks or wardrobe. No simon cowell , just raw
    vocal talent with no auto cue .

  45. Silvana ALONSO

    MERCI pour continuer .

  46. L. Campos

    To me she will always sing this song. Others will cover her. She , with her uttermost sensibility , rare heart, mind and soul, knew from the begining to choose and honor gems like ones from Leonard Cohen. Two great talents, gigant human beings, JOAN BAEZ e LEONARD COHEN . God bless you both forever. Rest in peace, Leonard Cohen . May we deserve Joan Baez with us through the dark and hard times to come. Thank you so much, Céline Allais for your sharing.

  47. Bedard Daniel

    Elle n'a pas oublié sont Francais qu'elle a apprit lorsqu'elle a vécue toutes ces années à Montréal et apres en France .

    L. Campos

    Yours seems to be the history of millions of us , all around the world. And make us a brotherhood of Hearts beating at the same pace . And I´m sure with a pace of love, compassion , goodness, that is what the bodhisattva, for a while named Joan Baez, brings, wthing her message, her voice, her soul. Love and Gratitude , forever.
