Joe Way wrote:I loved the new "Blues" song. [...] Leonard's guitar work in the song is also excellent. You can tell that two years of touring, sound checks and practicing his chops has left him so much more confident than he was at the beginning of the tour. I think it was in Hamilton when an interviewer asked him about nerves that he mentioned "Suzanne" and how performing that with its guitar work made him apprehensive. I don't think that is a problem anymore.
My thoughts, exactly! I've always loved his guitar playing, and it's so nice to see it back front and centre! I wonder if he'll play guitar on a new album? Wouldn't that be a treat?!

I might have a few words wrong here or there, but basically, this is it ... feel free to edit or correct!

Feels so good baby not to love you like I did
Feels so good not to love you like I did
It's like they tore away my blindfold and they said we're gonna let this prisoner live.
[Repeat]
Feels so good baby just to wake up in the morning by myself
Cup of coffee in the kitchen - fire up a little danger to my health
It's like the same old broken heart but it feels like it belongs to someone else.
[Repeat]
Feels so good baby to see you smiling back at me
It's so good baby not to be each other's VIP
It's like they tore away my blindfold and they said we're gonna let this man go free
[Repeat]
Feels so good not to love you like I did
Feels so good - I don't know why, but it just is ...
It's like they tore away my blindfold and they said we're gonna let this prisoner live
[Repeat]

I noted almost the same lyrics but I thought I heard him singing
"It's so good baby, not to be each others VIP"
and
"Feels so good, I don't know why but it just is"
Silence
and a deeper silence
when the crickets
hesitate

here's a setlist, i've received after the show. this is LC's setlist as it was taped to the main, center monitor. i've taken tons of photos which will eventually upload
for you to view and by the way this was my 3rd LC concert (11/7/1988, 06/20/1993) all of them in Chicago.

Leonard Cohen at Rosemont Theater: Gallery [go to link to see pictures]

Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen graced the stage of Rosemont Theater last night—looking as dapper as any fan of this ladies’ man would have supposed. TOC was there to capture the night in pictures.

I don't know the name yet !

I uploaded it to youtube under Chicago "new song". I will change this when I have a name.

Enjoy...

Albert, thank you so much. It's hard to believe you filmed that while watching it for the first time and not knowing the song.
What a gift! I loved the song.
There's a wonderful moment at about 5:00 when Leonard turns around to face Roscoe, and Roscoe smiles this lovely smile at him.
I look forward to your other videos of the concert.

Albert -

A superb video of a superb new song from Leonard. Thanks for posting it so quickly. Your video talent never ceases to amaze me.
