This song sounds better when its chords are strummed by using your thummb and forefinger.

Right before the chorus begins, strum the twelfth fret harmonics to give the song a
smooth transition
It would go as follows

Chorus:
Chorus contains three chords, G, Bb, and C. Each chord is strummed for a measure in
standard 4/4 count.
Here's how the chords would match up with the lyrics.
[G]You Just slip out the back, Jack
[Bb]Make a new plan, Stan
You[C] don't need to be coy, Roy
Just [G]get yourself free
[G]Hop on the bus, Gus
You [Bb]don't need to discuss much
Just [C]drop off the key, Lee
And [G]get yourself free
And that is how you play Paul Simon's 1975 song, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
