American Tune  Paul Simon



    [C] Many's the[F] time I[C]'ve [G]been mista[E]ken and[Am] many ti[E]mes confus[Am]ed
     [C]Yes  I've o[F]fte[C]n fel[G]t for[G]sake[E]n and[Am] certain[E]ly misus[Am]ed
     [C]Aw, but I'[F]m a[G]lright, [F]I'm alri[C]ght, I'm just [F]weary [C]to my bone[E]s
     [F]Still you [G]don't expect to be bri[C]ght and b[D]on vivan[G]t
     [C]So fa[F]r [C]awa[G]y from h[E]ome, [Am]so f[C]ar a[G]way from ho[C]me
      [C]I don't know a so[F]ul wh[C]o's no[G]t been battered[E]
      don't have a [Am]friend that's fe[E]els at e[Am]ase
    [C] I don't know a d[F]ream t[C]hat's n[G]ot been shattere[E]d or d[Am]riven [E]to it's kne[Am]es
     A[C]w, but it's a[F]lri[G]ght, it'[F]s alrigh[C]t for we lived[F] so we[C]ll so long[E]
     [F]Still when[G] I think of the ro[C]ad we're [D]travelin[G]' on
     [C]I won[F]de[C]r w[G]hat's gone wron[E]g, I [Am]can't help but wond[C]er w[G]hat's gone [C]wrong
c
And I dreamed I was dying...
                 I dreamed that my s[G]oul rose [E]unexpecte[Am]dly
                 And looking back do[G]wn on m[C]e s[Am]miled r[C]eassuringly[G]
                 And I dreamed I was fly[C]ing....


                 And hi[Am]gh up ab[C]ove [G]my eyes could c[E]learly [Am]see
                 The [C]Statue of [G]Liberty - s[Am]ailing awa[C]y to se[G]a
                 And I dreamed I was fl[C]ying....
     [C]For we come on the sh[F]ip they ca[C]ll Mayflowe[G]r
     We come on the [Am]ship that s[E]ailed the m[Am]oon
     We [C]come in the a[F]ge[C]s m[G]ost uncertain ho[E]urs and [Am]sing an Ameri[E]can T[Am]une
    [C] Aw, but it's a[F]lri[G]ght, [F]it's alr[C]ight you can't be[F] forev[C]er blesse[Am]d
    [F] Still tom[G]orrow's gonna be a[C]nother wo[D]rking da[G]y
     [C]And I'm tr[F]ying t[C]o g[G]et some r[E]est, that's [Am]all I'm t[C]rying to g[G]et some res[C]t
