Joan of Arc by Leonard Cohen (1971)

Hear the full-length song for free on YouTube, Jennifer Warnes-Leonard Cohen duet version:

From Wikipedia: “‘Joan of Arc’ is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen. It was released as a single in March 1971 from his third album, Songs of Love and Hate. The song is constructed mainly as a dialogue between Joan of Arc and the fire which is consuming her as she burns at the stake. In the song, Joan says that she is “tired of the war” and tells how she would rather be wearing a white wedding dress (one of the charges against her was that she dressed as a man). Joan’s surrender to the fire, as its bride, may also be seen as a symbol of her religious fervor and commitment”  Full Lyrics
