Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen all but disappeared for the better part of two decades, but when he reemerged in 2008, he made music history.

From 2008 to 2013 he toured the world, playing over 370 gigs, most over three hours long. The tour produced three different live albums of -get this- soundchecks. During their time before gigs Leonard and his band would practice rare, sometimes never recorded songs from his 40+ year arsenal.

Below is a version 'Choices', a song that was most famously performed by George Jones. George's version got him the 2000 Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. Leonard went on to play the song at two shows of his 2008 - 2013 tour. This particular version was recorded at a 2013 performance at the Mannheim Arena in Germany.

'Choices' (originally by Billy Yates)

I've had choices since the day that I was born
There were voices that told me right from wrong
If I had listened, no I wouldn't be here today
Living and dying with the choices I've made

I was tempted, by an early age I found
I liked drinkin', oh, and I never turned it down
There were loved ones but I turned them all away
Now I'm living and dying with the choices I've made

I've had choices since the day that I was born
There were voices that told me right from wrong
If I had listened, no I wouldn't be here today
Living and dying with the choices I've made

I guess I'm payin' for the things that I have done
If I could go back, oh, Lord knows I'd run
But I'm still losin' this game of life I play
Losing and dying with the choices I've made

I've had choices since the day that I was born
There were voices that told me right from wrong
If I had listened, no I wouldn't be here today
Living and dying with the choices I've made

Living and dying with the choices I've made.
