Kodachrome chords
Paul Simon  1973

Capo II *

D G Em D  Em\A7

             D
When I think back 
           D7                G
on all the crap I learned in high school 
Em
It's a wonder 
A7             D  Em A7
I can think at all 
              D          D7
And though my lack of education 
       G
hasn't hurt me none
Em             A              D   D7
I can read the writing on the wall 

    G B7 E
Kodachrome 
    E7            Am          D
You give us those nice bright colors 
                G         C
You give us the greens of summers 
          A             D               G    B7 E
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah! 
E7      Am    D
I got a Nikon camera 
                 G    C
I love to take a photograph 
               A       D           G   G Bm Em A A7
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away 

            D               D7
If you took all the girls I knew
           G
when I was single 
    Em                 A7             D    Em A7
And brought them all together for one night 
              D
I know they'd never match 
   D7         G
my sweet imagination 
Em                   A        A7        D    D7
And everything looks worse in black and white 

    G B7 E
Kodachrome 
    E7            Am          D
You give us those nice bright colors 
                G         C
You give us the greens of summers 
          A             D               G    B7 E
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah! 
E7      Am    D
I got a Nikon camera 
                 G    C
I love to take a photograph 
               A       D           G   G Bm Em 
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away 

            G       Bm          Em
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away 
            G       Bm          Em
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away
            G       Bm          Em
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

G
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome 
Bm
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome 
Em
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome (away) 

G
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome 
 Bm
(Leave your boy so far from home) 
Em
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome (away)

G                              Bm
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome whewwwwww
Em
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome (away)
