Here is an unrequested posting of Bookends Theme by Simon and Garfunkel.
It is easy to play and very pretty.  It is taken from the album Bookends
and is in 3:4 time, although sometimes the time signature changes.  If you
listen to the original, the one that opens the album is capoed much lower,
possibly open even.  This is the version that follows the song 'Old
Friends'.  Enjoy.

Repeat for verses...

Time it was and what a time it was it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences.
Long ago it must be, I have a photograph.
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you...

Begin again with new fourth measure...

I think the Capo goes on the 3rd fret.

I'm pretty sure it's actually capo 4...
