Subject: TAB/CRD: Mrs Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel
Heres my transcription of Mrs Robinson. I'm not sure exactly how accurate the
riffs are, but they seem not too bad to me. Any comments or corrections
please email me.
Mrs Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel
~~~~~~~~~~~~
From the motion picture "The Graduate", and the album "Bookends".
Transcribed and tabbed by John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz).
Capo 3rd fret (NB. Pauls guitar is slightly flat).
Suggest one guitar plays chords while another plays the riffs.
4/4 time.

Riff #1................ Riff #1................
[E7]hey
VERSE 2: (use Riff #4b instead of Riff #4a)
We'd like to know
A little bit about you
For our files.
We'd like to help you learn
To help yourself.
Look around you, all you see are
Sympathetic eyes.
Stroll around the grounds
Until you feel at home.
CHORUS 2: (as before)
And here's to you,
Mrs Robinson
Jesus loves you more than you will know
Wo wo wo
God bless you please,
Mrs Robinson,
Heaven holds a place for those who pray
Hey hey hey,
Hey hey hey.
VERSE 3: (use Riff #4b)
Hide it in a hiding place
Where no one ever goes.
Put it in you pantry with your cupcakes.
It's a little secret,
Just the Robinsons' affair.
Most of all, you've got to
Hide it from the kids.
CHORUS 3: (as before)
Coo coo ca-choo,
Mrs Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know
Wo wo wo.
God bless you please,
Mrs Robinson,
Heaven holds a place for those who pray
Hey hey hey,
Hey hey hey.
VERSE 4: (use Riff #4b)
Sitting on a sofa
On a Sunday afternoon.
Going to the candidates' debate.
Laugh about it,
Shout about it,
When you've got to choose,
Every way you look at it you lose.
CHORUS 4: (as before)
Where have you gone,
Joe DiMaggio?
A nation turns its lonely eyes to you
Ooo ooo ooo.
What's that you say,
Mrs Robinson?
Joltin' Joe has left and gone away
Hey hey hey,
Hey hey hey.
