“I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you, I’m glad you stood in my way” Cohen confesses to his betrayer in the song.

The famous blue raincoat actually belonged to Cohen himself. In liner notes written in 1976, he recalled, “I had a good raincoat then, a Burberry I got in London in 1959. Elizabeth thought I looked like a spider in it . . . . It hung more heroically when I took out the lining, and achieved glory when the frayed sleeves were repaired with a little leather . . . . I knew how to dress in those days. It was stolen from Marianne’s loft in New York sometime during the early ’70s. I wasn’t wearing it very much toward the end.”
