If I Could (El Condor Pasa) - Simon and Garfunkel
-------------------------------------------------
tabbed by North Georgia Boy
standard tuning
capo 6

[Verse 1]
     Em                            G
I'd rath-er be a spar-row than a snail
(D)    (G)   (D)   (G)      (Bm)   Em
Yes I would, if I could, I sure-ly would, hmm...

[Verse 2]
(verse 1 chords)

I'd rath-er be a ham-mer than a nail
Yes I would, if I only could...
I sure-ly would, hmm...

[Chorus]
 C
Away, I'd rather sail a-way...
        G
Like a swan that's here and gone
   C
A man gets tied up to the ground
               G                 (Bm)
He gives the world it's saddest-sound
             Em
It's saddest sound

[Verse 3]
(verse 1 chords)
I'd rather be a forest than a street
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would

[Verse 4]
(verse 1 chords)
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would

[Chorus]
 C
Away, I'd rather sail a-way...
        G
Like a swan that's here and gone
   C
A man gets tied up to the ground
               G                 (Bm)
He gives the world it's saddest-sound
             Em
It's saddest sound


FADING INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS
 C    G    C    G   (Bm)  Em

Nice chords! I played it without a capo at all and it sounds fine to me.

Sounds all good, but I think the Bm chord there should be B instead. Makes more sense musically, and all the spanish style songs have the V(7) instead of v, and this one sounds very traditional. Thanks for the work though.
