From: Adam Biros  
Subject: Simon and Garfunkel - Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream

[Here's correct, easy to play transcription of Simon and Garfunkel's version
of song written by E. McCurdy in 1950. While this is not the song
I would recommend for total beginners, it is good for intermediate
guitar players to learn something new. I was searching for these online
and since I couldn't find very correct chords, I used John McGann's Original
Custom Transcription Service. The result is - this tab! If you have any
questions or if you want to talk about Simon and Garfunkel, Beatles or any
good music, write me an email! I think it will be interesting to see people
writing me 10 years from this moment on.]

Simon and Garfunkel
Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.
Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream

Transcribed by John McGann

Play all notes / chords at equal length (song is in 3/4).
(Note that all the fancy single note playing is banjo, not guitar)

Play guitar the same as in 1st verse

Lyrics:
(And) when the papers all were signed
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads
And grateful prayers were prayed
And the people in the streets below
Were dancing round and round
And guns and swords and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground
