Late In The Evening:Paul Simon.
#6 in 1980.

#1.

    C                
The first thing I remember I was lying in my bed,  
                                       G 
I couldn't of been no more than one or two. 
        C                
And I remember there's a radio comin' from the room next door, 
                                          G                
and my mother laughed the way some ladies do, 
          D                                           G     
when it's late in the evening and the music's seeping through.  
#2.   
    C                
The next thing I remember, I am walking down the street, 
                                                    G                
I'm feeling all right I'm with my boys, I'm with my troops. 
    C                
And down along the avenue some guys were shooting pool,  
                                    G                
and I heard the sound of a cappella groups, 
        D
singing late in the evening, and all the girls out on the 
G   
stoops.  
#3.   
       C                                                                
Then I learned to play some lead guitar,  
  
I was underage in this funky bar, 
                                         G                
and I stepped outside to smoke myself a "J". 
    C                
And when I come back to the room,  
  
everybody just seemed to move, 
                                           G                
and I turned my amp up loud and I began to play,  
           D                                         G                
and it was late in the evening and I blew that room away.  
#4.   
    C                
The first thing I remember when you came into my life, 
                                                  G                
I said, I'm gonna get that girl, no matter what I do. 
        C                
Well, I guess I'd been in love before 
  
and once or twice I been on the floor, 
                                              G                
but I never loved no one the way that I loved you.
           D                                
And it was late in the evening, and all the music seeping  
G  
through. (Last line x2.)

An eighties smash from Kraziekhat.

This looks pretty good, but Paul Simon usually plays this in F (a step lower).

Believe it or not...I knew that.
Didn't think it was a big deal. KK.

You're right, not a big deal, just click the transpose drop-down. Not even sure why I felt like adding the comment but I can't take it back now.
