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 Rich

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
