Flowers never bend   Simon & Garfunkel








Flowers Never Bend with the Rainfall  - Simon & Garfunkel
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Transcribed and tabbed by John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz)
and Rich Kent (r.p.kent@durham.ac.uk).
Thanks to Adam Schneider (schn0170@maroon.tc.umn.edu) for the closing chord.

In the recording one guitar strums the chords (in the right-hand speaker)
while another plays the tab.

Capo 2nd fret for finger-picking guitar,
no capo for guitar playing the chords.

  hide behind  the  shield  of  my  illusion.
