Somewhere They Can't Find Me  Simon & Garfunkel

Date: Fri, 16 Jun 1995 09:48 +1200 (NZST)
Subject: CRD: ** Somewhere They Can't Find Me **
This song starts off the same as "Anji" (the next track on the album) but
suddenly turns into a hard rock version of "Wednesday Morning 3am" from the
previous album. The second line of the chorus turned up again years later
as "gliding down the highway" in the song "Slip Slidin' Away".
Somewhere They Can't Find Me - Simon & Garfunkel
>From "Sounds of Silence".
Transcribed by John Kean (
Capo 2nd fret.

I can [A]hear the soft breathing of the [G]girl that I love,
As she [Am]lies here beside me a[E]sleep with the night.
Her [A]hair in a fine mist [G]floats on my pillow,
Re[Am]flecting the [D/F#]glow of the [E7]winter moonlight.
But I've got to [C]creep down the [Am]alleyway,
Fly down the [G]highway,
Be[Am]fore they [C]come to [Am]catch me [F]I'll be [E9]gone.
[G]Somewhere they can't [Am]find me.[Am/G] [F] [E] [Am] [Am/G] [F] [E]
Oh baby, you don't know what I've done,
I've committed a crime, I've broken the law.
While you were here sleeping and just dreaming of me,
I held up and robbed a liquor store.
Oh my life seems unreal, my crime an illusion,
A scene badly written in which I must play.
And though it puts me uptight to leave you,
I know it's not right to leave you,
When morning is just a few hours away.
[Am]Am [Am/G]Am/G [F]F [E]E (repeat and fade)
