American Tune, by paul simon
Chords By Reneh "Sheik" Karamians


    C          F      C   G         E      Am      E         Am
     Many's the time I've been mistaken and many times confused
     C          F  C    G    G   E    Am      E       Am
     Yes  I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused
     C         F  G       F       C             F     C         E
     Aw, but I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm just weary to my bones
     F         G                     C        D       G
     Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant
     C    F C  G       E    Am  C   G          C
     So far away from home, so far away from home

      C                F    C     G              E
      I don't know a soul who's not been battered
                   Am              E       Am
      don't have a friend that's feels at ease
    C                F     C      G               E     Am    E          Am
     I don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to it's knees
      C            F  G       F       C             F     C         E
     Aw, but it's alright, it's alright for we lived so well so long
     F         G                 C        D       G
     Still when I think of the road we're travelin' on
     C    F C  G              E    Am                 C   G          C
     I wonder what's gone wrong, I can't help but wonder what's gone wrong

		                      C
                 And I dreamed I was dying...
                                    G        E        Am
		 I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
                                    G      C  Am     C          G
		 And looking back down on me smiled reassuringly
                                        C
		 And I dreamed I was flying....


                       Am      C   G              E      Am
	         And high up above my eyes could clearly see
                     C         G          Am        C      G
		 The Statue of Liberty - sailing away to sea
                                       C
		 And I dreamed I was flying....


     C                    F         C          G
     For we come on the ship they call Mayflower
                    Am         E          Am
     We come on the ship that sailed the moon
        C            F C  G               E       Am           E    Am
     We come in the ages most uncertain hours and sing an American Tune
    C              F  G    F       C                F     C        Am
     Aw, but it's alright, it's alright you can't be forever blessed
    F         G                 C        D       G
     Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day
     C         F     C  G        E           Am       C         G          C
     And I'm trying to get some rest, that's all I'm trying to get some rest
