American Tune  Paul Simon

     [C]Many's the [F]time I[C]'ve [G7]been mi[C]stak[G]en [E7]and many[Am] times confuse[Am]d
C F C G7 C G C Bo7 Am E7 Am
Yes and I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused
C9 F G F C F C G G#o7 Am A7
Aw, but I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm just weary to my bones
     [D7]Still you d[G7]on't expect to be brigh[C]t a[G7]nd b[D]on vivan[G]t
     [C]So fa[F]r [C]awa[G]y from [E7]hom[Am]e, [Dm7]so f[C]ar a[G13]way from [C]home
     [C]And I don't know a [F]soul [C]who's [G7]not b[C]een bat[G]tered[E7]
     I don't have a [Am]friend that's [E7]feels at ease[Am]
C F C G7 C G C Bo7 Am E7 Am
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to it's knees
C9 F G F C F C G G#o7 Am A7
Aw, but it's alright, it's alright for we lived so well so long
     [D7]Still [G7]when I think of the [C]road [G7]we're tra[D]velin' on [G]
     [C]I wo[F]nd[C]er what[C]'s [G]gone wron[E7]g, [Am]I can't [Dm7]help but wond[C]er [G13]what's gone w[C]rong
                 [C]And I dreamed I was dying...
G G7 Am D#o7
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
                 And looking back [G7]down on m[F]e [C]smiled reassuring[G]ly
                 [G7]And I dreamed I was [C]flying....
     [C]For we come on the [F]ship t[C]hey [G]call [C]Mayflower[G]
     [E7]We come on the s[Am]hip that s[E7]ailed the moo[Am]n
C F C G C G C Bo7 Am E7 Am
We come in the ages most uncertain hours and sing an American Tune
     [C9]Aw, but it's alr[F]ight[G], it's alr[F]ight[C] you can't [F]be [C]for[G]ev[E7]er [Am]blessed
     [D7]Still tom[G]orrow's gonna be an[C]oth[G7]er [D]working [G]day
     [C]And I'm tr[F]ying [C]to [G]get some rest[E7], t[Am]hat's al[Dm7]l I'm[C] trying[G13] to get [G7]some [C]rest
                 [C]And I dreamed I was flying....
G G7 Am D#o7
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
                 The Statue of [G7]Liberty - [C]sailing away to [G]sea
                [G7] And I dreamed I was [C]flying....
