Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard

Paul Simon

 G/DA/DG/DDG/DA/DG/DD
            
 GC
 Mama pajama rolled outta bed, she ran to the police station
 D
When the papa found out
 G
he began to shout and started the investigation
 DG
It's against the law, it was against the law
 DG
What what mama saw, it was against the law

The mama look down and spit on the ground 
Every time my name gets mentioned
The papa said "oy, if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention"

CHORUS:
 CG
Well I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm goin'
 CGAD
I'm on my way, takin' my time, but I don't know where
 CFG
Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona
 FC/EDGCGD
See you, me and Julio down by the schoolyard   
 FC/EDGCGD
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard   

(Instrumental break)

In a couple of days they come and take me away
But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest come to get me released
 GFC/EDGCGD
We was all on the cover of Newsweek ...CHORUS   
See you, me and Julio down by the schoolyard
