“I want to serve you baby, but I’ve forgotten how to bend my knee” Leonard Cohen’s Early Version Of Anthem

I can’t run no more
with that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud

I want to serve you baby,
but I’ve forgotten how
to bend my knee

 

Lyrics to an early version of Anthem sung by Leonard Cohen in Exceptional Video: Portrait Of Leonard Cohen – 1992 Interview On Songwriting.
