All Around the World or the Myth of Fingerprints – Paul Simon

From the Album “Graceland” 1986

[VERSE 1]
G                  
Over the mountain 
C           D       
Down in the valley 
G         C      D               
  Lives a former talk show host 
G           C      D    G     C  D 
  Everybody knows  his  name 
                 G                 C  D
He said "There's no doubt about it 
         G                    C  D    
It was a myth of fingerprints 
     G                 C  
I've seen them all and man 
        D       G    C  D 
They're all the same 


[CHORUS]
          G  
Well, the sun gets weary 
        C        G     
And the sun goes down 
G                           
Ever since the watermelon 
G          
And the lights come up 
       C         G        
On the black pit town 
                                C        G        
Somebody says, "What's a better thing to do?" 
G                      
Well, it's not just me 
         C        G 
And it's not just you 
        D    C         G      
This is all around the world 


[VERSE 2]
G                 C         D      
Out in the Indian Ocean somewhere 
G                  C    D       
  There's a former army post 
 G                 C     D    G    C  D 
Abandoned now just like  the  war 
            G                 C  
And there's no doubt about it 
D          G       C     D       
It was the myth of fingerprints 
G                    C    D        G   C  D 
That's what that old army post was for 


[CHORUS]
          G  
Well, the sun gets bloody 
        C        G     
And the sun goes down 
G                          
Ever since the watermelon 
G         
And the lights come up 
       C         G        
On the black pit town 
                                C        G        
Somebody says, "What's a better thing to do?" 
G                      
Well, it's not just me 
         C        G 
And it's not just you 
        D    C         G      
This is all around the world 


[VERSE 3]
G                  
Over the mountain 
C           D       
Down in the valley 
G         C      D               
Lives the former talk-show host 
G                  C    D   G      C  D 
  Far and wide his name was known 
                 G                 C  
He said "There's no doubt about it 
D            G       C     D       
  It was the myth of fingerprints 
G                  C        D     G   C  D 
That's why we must learn to live alone

G       C  D    G     C  D       G          C        D        G   C D

G       C  D    G     C  D       G          C        D        G  
Oo-oooo oo-oooo oo-oo oo oo-oo   Whoa, live on, live on, live on. 
C          D
All Around the...
G       C  D    G     C  D       G          C        D        G   C D   G
Oo-oooo oo-oooo oo-oo oo oo-oo   Whoa, live on, live on, live on.
