Suzanne (Baez Joan)

Suzane takes you down To a place by the river You can see the boats go by You can spend the night forever And you know that she's half crazy That's why you want to be there She feeds you tea and oranges That come all the way from China And just when you mean to tell her You have no love to give her She gets you on wave lengths 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 your Perfect body with her mind Jesus was a sailor When he walked upon 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 would 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 your Perfect body with His mind Suzane 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 She shows you where to look Amongst the garbage and the flowers There are heroes in the seaweed There are children in the morning There are leaning out for love And they will lean that way for ever While Suzane 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 your Perfect body with her mind
