Obvious Child  Paul Simon

[G]Well, I'm accustomed to a smooth ride
Or [D]maybe I'm a [G]dog who's [D]lost its [G]bite
I don't ex[D]pect to [G]be [C]treated like a fool no [F]more
[C]  I don't ex[G]pect to [D]sleep through the [D]night
Some [D]people [C]say a [G]lie's a [D]lie's a [G]lie
But [D]I [G]say [C]why
Why deny the [F]obvious [C]child?
Why deny the [F]obvious [C]child? [G]
                                    And in re[D]membering a [G]road [C]sign
[G]  I am re[D]member[C]ing a [G]girl when [D]I was [G]young [C]
[F]  [C]  And we [G]said These [D]songs are [G]true
These [D]days are [G]ours
These [D]tears are [G]free
And [D]hey[G]
[C]  The cross is in the [F]ball[C]park
The cross is in the [F]ball[C]park [G]
We had a lot of fun
We had a lot of money  [D]  [C]
We [G]had a little son and we thought we'd call him Sonny  [D]  [C]
Sonny gets [D]married and [G]moves away
[C]Sonny has a [D]baby and [G]bills to pay
[C]Sonny gets [D]sunnier
[G]Day by day by [C]day by [D]day
                                    [G]  Doh, doh,  doh, doh
Doh, doh, doh, doh
                                     Well, I've been [D]waking [C]up at [G]sunrise
I've been [D]following the [G]light a[D]cross my [G]room
I [D]watch [G]the [C]night receive the [F]room of [C]my [G]day[D]
[G]  Some [D]people [C]say the [G]sky is [D]just the [G]sky
But [D]I [G]say
[C]  Why deny the [F]obvious [C]child?
Why deny the [F]obvious [C]child?
                                                                        [G]    [C/G]    [G]                                                               
Mm---------  

                                    [C/G]Sonny [G]sits [C]by [G]his [D]window and [C]thinks to himself
How [D]it's [G]strange [C]that [G]some [D]rooms are like [C]cages
Son[D]ny's [G]year[C]book [G]from [D]high school
Is [C]down from the shelf
[D]And he i[C]d-[G]ly [D]thumbs through the [C]pages
Some [Ab]have [Bbm]died
Some have [G]fled from themselves
Or [C]strug[G]gled [D]from [G]here [D]to [G]get [D]there
[C]Sonny [G]wan[C]ders [G]be[D]yond his in[C]terior walls
Runs his [G]hand [C]through [G]his [D]thinning brown [C]hair
                                    Well, I'm accustomed to a [G]smooth ride
Or [D]maybe I'm a [G]dog who's [D]lost its [G]bite
I don't ex[D]pect to [G]be [C]treated like a fool no [F]more
[C]  I don't ex[G]pect to [D]sleep through the [D]night
Some [D]people [C]say a [G]lie's a [D]lie's a [G]lie
But [D]I [G]say
[C]  the cross is in the [F]ball[C]park
Why deny the [F]ob[C]vious [G]   child?
