Intro/Verses

This song sounds better when its chords are strummed by using your thummb and forefinger.

     H     H       H    Q Q     H   H      H   H
e-|--3-----2---|---0---------|--0---2---|--2---3----|
B-|--5-----0---|---0----1-0--|--0---1---|--4---0----|
G-|--4-----2---|---0----2-2--|--0---2---|--2---0----|

Right before the chorus begins, strum the twelfth fret harmonics to give the song a 
smooth transition

It would go as follows

(Last Measure of Verse)

    H            Q      Q
e-|-0-----------<12>-----------|
B-|-0-----------<12>-----------|
G-|-0-----------<12>-----------|
D-|-2-----------<12>-----------|
A-|-2-----------<12>-----------|
E-|-0-----------<12>----12\----|

Chorus:

Chorus contains three chords, G, Bb, and C.  Each chord is strummed for a measure in 
standard 4/4 count.

Here's how the chords would match up with the lyrics.

G
You Just slip out the back, Jack

Bb
Make a new plan, Stan

   C
You don't need to be coy, Roy

     G
Just get yourself free

G
Hop on the bus, Gus

    Bb
You don't need to discuss much

     C
Just drop off the key, Lee

    G
And get yourself free

And that is how you play Paul Simon's 1975 song, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
