These chords are very similar to version 1, except for the 2nd line in each verse, 
where Simon plays the Am chords and descends in the bass note from A to G and F#


G   D/F#   C   G/C  G/C   G/C       


                        D/F#        C   G/C   G     
Fog’s rolling in off the east river bank    
        Am              Am/G            Am/F#           
like a shroud 
        G           Em
it covers Bleecker  Street
          B7               C 
fills the alleys where men sleep
          G         D/F# 
hides the shepherd 
          Em        G       
from the  sheep                                       

       D/F#          C     G/C   G     
Voices leaking from a sad cafe
        Am              Am/G            Am/F#           
Smiling faces 
      G      Em
try to understand
        B7            C 
I saw a shadow touch a shadow's hand
   G  D/F#  Em        G             
On Bleecker Street

         D/F#  C           G/C   G     
The poet reads his crooked rhyme
        Am              Am/G            Am/F#           
Holy holy 
      G     Em
is his sacrament
       B7               C 
Thirty dollars pays your rent
   G  D/F#  Em        G             
On Bleecker Street

          D/F#       C       G/C   G     
I heard a church bell softly chime
     Am                 Am/G            Am/F#           
In a melody 
  G     Em
       B7           C 
It's a long road to Canaan
   G  D/F#  Em        G             
On Bleecker Street
