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 laid back
D7                    D7                   D7                   D7
Palm trees grow and rents are low but-I-gotta-feeling-like-I-gotta-start
G
Making my way back
G                                                   G7                C
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 and New York's home but it ain't mine no more.

Chorus:

G
I am I said
           C
To noone there
D         D7                 D-C-G    D
And noone 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 don't even know why

(tacit) Leaving me lonely still

Verse 2:
Did-you-ever-hear-about-the-frog-who-dreamed-about-being-A-king
And suddenly became one?
Well, except for the names and a few other changes
My story's the same one
But I have an emptiness deep inside so strong 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 being alone.

Chorus
Chorus.
