I did see diamond on the soles of her shoes on the web but wrong chords!
I got mine from the songbook years ago when I was sat in the library at
Manchester when i should have been working.
The 5th fret thing is my touch cause I saw Paul playing this song live
in a documentary with capo on.

PAUL SIMON
DIAMONDS ON THE SOLES OF HER SHOES
(graceland)

CAPO 5th fret
C                                  F
People say she's crazy, she's got diamonds
       G             C            F
on the soles of her shoes, well that's
            G           C
one way to lose these walking blues
F           G               C      F   G
diamonds on the soles of her shoes.

C
She's was physically forgotten then she
F                 G                 C
slipped into my pocket with my car keys.
     F           G              C
she said you've taken me for granted
 F                 G
because I please you wearing these
 C           F        G
diamonds

chorus:
C               F    G C  F
And I could say ooooo as if everybody
G                       C        F
knows what I'm talking about as if
                       G
everybody here would knows excally what I
     C             F             G
was talking about, Talking  about diamonds
         C      F      G
of her shoes.
    C                    F
She makes the sign of a teaspoon he makes
G              C        F
the sign of a wave the poor boy changes
 G                   C
clothes and puts on aftershave to
F               G             C     F   G
compensate for his ordinary shoes
     C                      F
And she said honey take me dancing but
        G                        C
they ended up by sleeping in a doorway
 F                       G
by the bodegas and the lights on upper
  C        F        G            C
Broadway wearing diamonds on the soles
of her shoes
