Third time lucky, even for Leonard Cohen

The Louisville Palace
Louisville, Kentucky

After a beautiful show so far, Leonard Cohen starts ‘Closing time’, but right after starting the song he gets the lyrics wrong. He stops the song and tells the audience:

I screwed up the words and I’d like to start again

He starts again but makes the exact same fault. Once again he stops the music saying:

Please forgive me friends, but some things have to be done right

With a little help from the audience he manages to get it right the third time.

You can listen to the recording at the  bottom of this post.
