Everybody Knows

Song Author Leonard Cohen Lyrics by: Leonard Cohen Performer: Leonard Cohen Submitted by: Anonymous
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.

Everybody [F]knows. Everybody [C]knows.
That's how things [Dm]goes.[C] Every[Bb]body [F]knows.
Everybody [F]knows. Everybody [C]knows.
That's how it [Dm]goes.[C] Every[Bb]body [F]knows.

[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.

Everybody [F]knows. Everybody [C]knows.
That's how things [Dm]goes.[C] Every[Bb]body [F]knows.
Everybody [F]knows. Everybody [C]knows.
That's how it [Dm]goes.[C] Every[Bb]body [F]knows.

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded.
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed.
Everybody knows the war is over.
Everybody knows the good guys lost.
Everybody knows the fight was fixed:
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich.
That's how it goes. Everybody knows.

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking.
Everybody knows the captain lied.
Everybody got this broken feeling
like their father or their dog just died.
Everybody talking to their pockets.
Everybody wants a box of choc'lates
and a long stem rose. Everybody knows.

Everybody knows that you love me, baby.
Everybody knows that you really do.
Everybody knows that you've been faithful,
give or take a night or two.
Everybody knows you've been discret,
But there were so many people you just had to meet
without your clothes. And everybody knows.

Everybody knows. Everybody knows.
That's how things goes. Everybody knows.
Everybody knows. Everybody knows.
That's how it goes. Everybody knows.

And everybody knows that it's now or never.
Everybody knows that's me or you.
And everybody knows that you live forever
when you've done a line or two.
Everybody knows the deal is rotten:
Old black Joe's still picking cotton
for your ribbon and bows. And everybody knows.

Everybody knows that the plague is coming.
Everybody knows that it's moving fast.
Everybody knows that the naked man and the woman
are just a shining artifact of the past.
Everybody knows the scene is dead,
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
that will disclose What everybody knows.

And everybody knows that you're in trouble.
Everybody knows what you've been through,
from the bloody cross on top of Calvary
to the beach of Malibu.
Everybody knows it's coming apart:
Take one last look at this sacred heart
before it blows. And everybody knows.

Everybody knows. Everybody knows.
That's how things goes. Everybody knows.
Everybody knows. Everybody knows.
That's how it goes. Everybody knows.
