Song: AMERICAN TUNE
Words & music by Paul Simon


Man-y's the time I've been mis-tak-en
5    6   6   -6   6    -5   5  -4  5
And man-y times con-fused.
-7   7  7  -7   -7   -6
Yes, and I've of-ten felt for-sak-en
5     6   6   -6  6   -5   5  -4 6 5
And cer-tain-ly mis-used
-7   7   8   -8 8   -8
Oh, but I'm all right, I'm all  right
7    7   7  -7    6     6 -6-7-66  6 
I'm just wea-ry to my bones
6    6    -6 7  6  -5   5  
Still, you don't ex-pect to be
7       -6  -7   7   -8  7  -7
Bright and bon vi-vant
7      -7  -6  6   -7 
So far a-way from home, 
5  -5  6  6   -4   5
so  far a-way from home
-67  6  5  5   -4   4
I don't know a soul 
4  5     6   6  -6
who's not been bat-tered
6     -5  5    -4   5  
I don't have a friend who feels at ease
5  -7   -7   -7  7     7   -7   -7  -6
I don't know a dream that's 
5  5      6  6  -6    6
not been shat-tered
-5   5   -4  6  5
or driv-en to its knees
-7  7   8 -8  8  -8
Oh, but it's all right, it's all right
7    7   7    7   -7     6 -6-7-66 6  
for we lived so well so long
6   6   -6   7   6   -5  5
Still, when I think of the
7       -7  7  -8   7   -7
road we're trav-’ling on
7     -7    -6    6   -7 
I won-der what's gone wrong
5  -5  6    6     -4    5
I can't help it, I won-der what's gone wrong
5  -6    -6  6   6  6   5    5     -4    4

And I dreamed I was dying
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me
Smiled reassuringly
And I dreamed I was flying
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
The Statue of Liberty
Sailing away to sea
And I dreamed I was flying

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
We come in the age's most uncertain hours
and sing an American tune
Oh, and it's alright, it's all right, it's all right
You can't be forever blessed
Still, tomorrow's going to be another working day
And I'm trying to get some rest
That's all I'm trying to get some rest
