                           The Dangling Conversation
                           ------------------------
                             by Simon and Garfunkel

So here we are a brilliant song by Paul Simon this one. I think its ok
I tabbed it myself so if anyone spots any mistakes let me know. Its not
too hard to play either just make sure its played evenly especially the
faster bits. I've added the variations on the picking in the Em F E D section
because it sounds better that way.

Enjoy

       the ocean roar               in the dangling 
Then it goes to the intro again for the rest of the chorus.
Verse2

And you read your Emily Dickinson and I my Robert Frost
And we note our place with bookmarkers that measure what we've lost.
Like a poem poorly written
We are verses out of rhythm, couplets out of rhyme in synchopated time

Chorus

And the dangling conversation and the superficial sighs 
Are the borders of our lives

Verse3

Yes we speak of things that matter with words that must be said
Can analysis be worthwhile? Is the theatre really dead?
And how the room is softly faded
And I only kiss your shadow I cannot feel your hand, you're a stranger 
Now unto me
