MIDDLE 8 [Paul Simon]
Am                     Abaug

With a woman he met on a train, oh
Am             Abaug
His little boy   ran to the room

 Where his piano lay in wait for him

MIDDLE 8 [Paul Simon]
Am           Abaug
  A year ago,  I met a girl 
C/G                           D7/F#
 I thought we'd hit a massive groove
        C/G       
But she dumped me 
G
  And all we'd hit were the blues

You can hear it in his music
             C    G/B    Am  C/E   F                         G
He's got the blues, this boy   has really got the blues
