FOR EMILY, WHEREVER I MAY FIND HER
PAUL SIMON

Transcribed by:  Erik_Davis@magic-bbs.corp.apple.com

Here's the way I've been playing it -- not an exact lift, but gets the feel
of the song, sounds amazing, and  is surprisingly simple to play.  It is
fingerpicked (somewhat hard to play with a flatpick, but possible if your
country claw has an even bass-treble volume ratio, and uses both the middle
and index to work the top strings.  I personally think it sounds better
with fingerpicks or even bare fingers).  


I play it on Capo III


THE CHORDS: 

D5:  xx0235
G5: xx0033
D: 200232
G: xx0033
Cmaj7: x32000
A: x02220

THE PICKING PATTERN:

B-2-(3+1)-2-B-2-(3+1)-2

Where B is the lowest bass note, as indicated in the above chord charts. 
(3+1) indicates that the 3 and the 1 are plucked simultaneously.  As you
may have guessed, all of the above strings get 1/8 note.

This pattern is consistent throughout the song
Intro: /D5/G5/D5/G5


THE SONG:

Intro: /D5.../G5.../D5.../G5.../

(D5) What a dream I had,(G) pressed in (Fig 1) organdy
(D) Clothed in crinoline (Cmaj7) of smokey burgandy
(G) Softer than the (A) rain

I wanderd empty streets, down past the shop display
I heard cathedral bells, tripping down the alley-way
As I walked on

And when you ran to me, your checks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand

(instrumental)

And when I awoke and felt your warm and near
I kissed your honey hair, with my grateful tears
Oh I love you girl

(Cmaj7) Oh (G) how I love you (A) girl


THE FIGURES:
Each dash represents 1/16th note.  I have tried to be exact in this to make
it easier.

s - strum
r - strum, with a slight ritard (normally notated by a wavy down arrow next
to the chord)
p - pluck
