I Am A Rock
1965 by Paul SIMON

           G         C               G       
A winter's day, in a deep and dark december;
am D7  C   G am            hm     am               hm
I am alone, gazing from my window to the streets below
     am             C                D              
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
C      G     C       D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

           G        C                 G       
I've built walls, a fortress deep and 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      G     C       D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

              G              C                 G
Don't talk of love, but I've heard the words before;
     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      G     C       D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

          G             C            G
I have my books, and my poetry to protect me;
     am   D7     C    G    am           hm    am             hm
I am shielded in my armor, hiding in my room, save within my womb.
  am                 C              D
I touched no one and no one touches me.
C      G     C       D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

      am   D7       G
And a rock feels no pain;
       am     D7    G
And an island never cries!
