American Tune chords
Paul Simon

C          F    C    G7   C  G E7      Am   E        Am
Many's the time I've been mistaken and many times confused
C            F  C  G7   C  G E7      Am    E7     Am
Yes and I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused
            F G          F C               F     C  G  Am   A7
Aw, but I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm just weary to my bones
D7        G7                 C      G7  D      G
Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant
C  F    C   G    E7       Am   Dm7 G13  C
So far away from home, so far away from home

C                  F    C     G7  C    G    E7
And I don't know a soul who's not been battered
               Am         E7       Am
I don't have a friend who feels at ease
C              F     C      G7  C    G     E7     Am     E7      Am
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to it's knees
             F  G          F C            F        C    G  Am   A7
Aw, but it's alright, it's alright for we lived so well so long
D7    G7                  C    G7    D         G
Still when I think of the road we're travelin' on 
C F      C      G    E7  Am   Dm7            C      G13        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    G7       Am      D7
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
                 G7      F  C                G
And looking back down on me smiled reassuringly
                    C
And I dreamed I was flying
             G       G7         Am        D7
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
              G7        C               G
The Statue of Liberty - sailing away to sea
G7                  C
And I dreamed I was flying

C                  F    C    G    C        G
For we come on the ship they call Mayflower
E7             Am        E7         Am
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
   C           F C  G    C G       E7        Am      E7       Am  
We come in the ages most uncertain hours and sing an American Tune
             F G           F C         F     C  G  E7   Am
Aw, but it's alright, it's alright you can't be forever blessed
D7      G                 C  G7   D       G
Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day
C       F      C  G        E7  Am       Dm7     C         G13      C
And I'm trying to get some rest, that's all I'm trying to get some rest

Great work. I think in the last chorus the E7 to Am should be Am to A7 though.

Very good indeed! Just one correction, that makes a major difference in my ears: after "unexpectedly" the chord is not D7 but a diminished A chord.

No version has got it right by now. I would love to see your take on the bassline too!
