MIDDLE 8 [Paul Simon]
Am                     Abaug
 When I was nine years old 
C/G            D7/F#
 My daddy ran away
       C/G      G        C      G/B
With a woman he met on a train, oh
Am             Abaug
His little boy   ran to the room 
C/G              D7/F#
 Where his piano lay in wait for him
   C/G                  G                 [C]
He played and he played, he played and he played

He's got the blues, this boy   has got the blues


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

             C    G/B    Am  C/E     F
He's got the blues, this boy,   he's got the blues
        G
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
