I Am A Rock
1965 by Paul SIMON
A winter's [G]day, in a [C]deep and dark de[G]cember;
am D7 C G am hm am hm
I am alone, gazing from my window to the streets below
On a [am]freshly fallen [C]silent shroud of [D]snow.
[C]I Am A [G]Rock, [C]I am an [D7]isl[G]and.
I've built [G]walls, a [C]fortress deep and [G]mighty,
am D7 C G am hm
That none may penetrate. I have no need of friendship;
am hm am C D
Friendship causes pain. It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
[C]I Am A [G]Rock, [C]I am an [D7]isl[G]and.
Don't talk of [G]love, but I've [C]heard the words be[G]fore;
am D7 C G am hm am
It's sleeping in my memory. I won't disturb the slumber of feelings
hm am C D
That have died. If I never loved I never would have cried.
[C]I Am A [G]Rock, [C]I am an [D7]isl[G]and.
I have my [G]books, and my [C]poetry to pro[G]tect me;
am D7 C G am hm am hm
I am shielded in my armor, hiding in my room, save within my womb.
I [am]touched no one and [C]no one touches [D]me.
[C]I Am A [G]Rock, [C]I am an [D7]isl[G]and.
And a [am]rock [D7]feels no [G]pain;
And an [am]island [D7]never [G]cries!
by Franz Felix - Austria/Vienna
