E A D G B E
I Am I Said
by Neil Diamond

[Verse]

First four lines are spoken, next two sung:

G               C           G
LA's fine, the sun shines, most 'the time
D
And the feeling is lay-back
D7                    D7                   D7                   D7
Palm trees grow and rents are low but you know, I keep thinkin' 'bout
G
Makin' my way back
G                                                   G7                C
Well, I'm New York City born and raised but nowadays I'm lost between two shores.
D7                                D7                                  G   
LA's fine but it ain't home. New York's home but it ain't mine no more.


[Chorus]

G
I am I said
           C
To no one there
D         D7                 D-C-G    D
And no one heard at all, not even the chair
G
I am I cried
          C
I am said I
     D     D7             D-C-G      D
And I am lost and I can't even say why

(tacit) Leavin' me lonely still


[Verse 2]

Did you ever read about a frog who dreamed of being a king, 
And then became one?
Well, except for the names and a few other changes, if you talk about me
The story's the same one
But I got an emptiness deep inside and I tried but it won't let me go
And I'm not a man who likes to swear, but I've never cared for the sound
of bein' alone.

G
I am I said
           C
To no one there
D         D7                 D-C-G    D
And no one heard at all, not even the chair
G
I am I cried
          C
I am said I
     D     D7             D-C-G      D
And I am lost and I can't even say why

G
I am I said
G
I am I cried

I am...
