Passing Through

Song Author Leonard Cohen Lyrics by: Leonard Cohen Performer: Leonard Cohen Submitted by: Anonymous
I saw [C]Jesus on the cross on a [F]hill called Calvary
"Do you [C]hate mankind for what they done to[G] you?"
He said, [C]"Talk of love not hate,
things to[F] do - it's getting late.
I've so [C]little time and I'm [G]only passing t[C]hrough."

[C]Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes [C7]blue,
glad that [F]I ran into you.
Tell the [C]people that you
[G]saw me passing t[C]hrough.

I saw [C]Adam leave the Garden
with an [F]apple in his hand,
I said [C]"Now you're out,
what are you going to [G]do?"
"Plant some [C]crops and pray for rain,
maybe [F]raise a little cane.
I'm an o[C]rphan now,
and I'm [G]only passing t[C]hrough."

[C]Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes [C7]blue,
glad that [F]I ran into you.
Tell the [C]people that you
[G]saw me passing t[C]hrough.

I was with [C]Washington at Valley Ford,
[F]shivering in the snow.
I said, "[C]How come the men here
suffer like they [G]do?"
"Men will [C]suffer, men will fight,
even [F]die for what is right
even t[C]hough they know
they're [G]only passing t[C]hrough"

[C]Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes [C7]blue,
glad that [F]I ran into you.
Tell the [C]people that you
[G]saw me passing t[C]hrough.

I was with [C]Franklin Roosevelt's side
on the [F]night before he died.
He said, [C]"One world must come
out of World War[G] Two" (ah, the fool)
"Yankee, [C]Russian, white or tan," he said,
"A [F]man is still a man.
We're all [C]on one road,
and we're [G]only passing t[C]hrough."

[C]Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes [C7]blue,
glad that [F]I ran into you.
Tell the [C]people that you
[G]saw me passing t[C]hrough.

(let's do it one more time)

[C]Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes [C7]blue,
glad that [F]I ran into you.
Tell the [C]people that you
[G]saw me passing t[C]hrough.

I saw Jesus on the cross on a hill called Calvary
"Do you hate mankind for what they done to you?"
He said, "Talk of love not hate,
things to do - it's getting late.
I've so little time and I'm only passing through."

Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,
glad that I ran into you.
Tell the people that you
saw me passing through.

I saw Adam leave the Garden
with an apple in his hand,
I said "Now you're out,
what are you going to do?"
"Plant some crops and pray for rain,
maybe raise a little cane.
I'm an orphan now,
and I'm only passing through."

Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,
glad that I ran into you.
Tell the people that you
saw me passing through.

I was with Washington at Valley Ford,
shivering in the snow.
I said, "How come the men here
suffer like they do?"
"Men will suffer, men will fight,
even die for what is right
even though they know
they're only passing through"

Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,
glad that I ran into you.
Tell the people that you
saw me passing through.

I was with Franklin Roosevelt's side
on the night before he died.
He said, "One world must come
out of World War Two" (ah, the fool)
"Yankee, Russian, white or tan," he said,
"A man is still a man.
We're all on one road,
and we're only passing through."

Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,
glad that I ran into you.
Tell the people that you
saw me passing through.

(let's do it one more time)

Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,
glad that I ran into you.
Tell the people that you
saw me passing through.
