{title:Kathy's Song}
{st:Paul Simon}

[G]I hear the [C]drizzle of the [G]rain_ [Am]Like a [Em]memo[C]ry it [Bm7]falls
[G]Soft and [Bm]warm con[G]tinu[C]ing_ [Am]Tapping [Em]on my [D]roof and [G]walls [C]    [G]

[G]And from the [C]shelter of my [G]mind_ [Am]Through the [Em]window [C]of my [Bm7]eyes
[G]I gaze be[Bm]yond the [G]rain drenched [C]streets_ [Am]To England [Em]where my [D]heart [G]lies [C]    [G]

[G]My mind's dis[C]tracted and [G]diffused_ [Am]My [Em]thoughts are many [C]miles a[Bm7]way
[G]They lie with [Bm]you when [G]you're a[C]sleep_ [Am]And kiss you [Em]when you [D]start your [G]day [C]  
 [G]

[G]And a song I was [C]writing is left [G]undone_ [Am]I don't know [Em]why I [C]spent the [Bm7]time
[G]Writing [Bm]song I [G]can't be[C]lieve_ [Am]With words that [Em]tear and [D]strain to [G]rhyme [C]     [G]

[G]And so you [C]see I have come to [G]doubt_ [Am]All that [Em]I once [C]held as [Bm7]true
[G]I stand a[Bm]lone with[G]out be[C]liefs_ [Am]The only [Em]truth I [D]know is [G]you [C]    [G]

[G]And as I [C]watch the drops of [G]rain [Am]weave their [Em]weary [C]paths and [Bm7]die
[G]I know that [Bm]I am [G]like the [C]rain_ [Am]There but for the [Em]grace of [D]you go [G]I. [C]     [G]

Best for a general tenor-inclined sort of voice, and nice to sing is 5 half steps down from original - i.e.

D, G, D, Em, Bm etc. Try that if you are frustrated hitting the right key here.

That Bm7 is what gives this version, to me, more of the sound I associate with the Simon and Garfunkel album of yore... It took me a 'sec to appreciate it and pinpoint why: the Bm7 lets the B note ring out with that sad, uncertain twang at the end of those first lines and not until the end of the 2nd accompanying line are we brought back in with the comforting C. Playing a D7 diffuses the tension because your second string already anticipates that C note. Just my humble and completely non-formal-music-theory opinion...of course.

Well hell's bells. Today the D7 sounds better.
