American Tune

Paul Simon

 CFCGEAmEAm
     Many's the time I've been mistaken and many times confused
 CFCGGEAmEAm
     Yes  I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused
 CFGFCFCE
     Aw, but I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm just weary to my bones
 FGCDG
     Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant
 CFCGEAmCGC
     So faaway from home, so far away from home

 CFCGE
      I don't know a soul who's not been battered 
 AmEAm
      don't have a friend that's feels at ease
 CFCGEAmEAm
     I don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to it's knees
 CFGFCFCE
     Aw, but it's alright, it's alright for we lived so well so long 
 FGCDG
     Still when I think of the road we're travelin' on
 CFCGEAmCGC
     I wonder what's gone wrong, I can't help but wonder what's gone wrong

c
And I dreamed I was dying...
 GEAm
                 I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
 GCAmCG
                 And looking back down on me smiled reassuringly 
 C
                 And I dreamed I was flying....

 AmCGEAm
                 And high up above my eyes could clearly see
 CGAmCG
                 The Statue of Liberty - sailing away to sea
 C
                 And I dreamed I was flying....

 CFCG
     For we come on the ship they call Mayflower
 AmEAm
     We come on the ship that sailed the moon
 CFCGEAmEAm
     We come in the ages most uncertain hours and sing an American Tune
 CFGFCFCAm
     Aw, but it's alright, it's alright you can't be forever blessed
 FGCDG
     Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day
 CFCGEAmCGC
     And I'm trying to get some rest, that's all I'm trying to get some rest
