Words & music by Paul Simon 1975


[Intro]

|E     |B/D#   |C#m     |        |

|E     |B/D#   |C#m     |        |

|E     |B/D#   |C#m     |        |

[ Verse 1 ]
 
E     
  In my little town
Em            |Em7/A A7  |
   I grew up believ--ing
D              |Bm       |Am |  |
  God keeps His eye on us all
F               |C           |
  And He used to lean upon me
C+               |E7             |A   |
   As I pledged allegiance to the wall
Bm         |E
   Lord I recall
         |A   |
My little town

[Verse 2]
            A/G# |F#m   |
Coming home after school
Am6          |D9               
    Flying my bike past the gates
      |G        |E7 |F |
Of the factories
Bb                 |F      |
   My mom doing the laundry
F+            |A 
   Hanging our shirts
            |D     |  |
In the dirty breeze

[Verse 3]
             |G
 And after it rains
         |
There's a rainbow
   |                     |D
And all of the colors are black
    |Em                        |D
It's not that the colors aren't there
    |         |G |Dmaj7    |E   |
It's just imagin-ation they lack
                |Em7
Everything's the same

    |A             |D   |G |D |G |
Back   in my little town

|Bm    |Bm/A     |A      |        |


|D     |G       |D       |G       |



[Chorus]
D                       |C#m7-5 
Nothing but the dead and dying 
                 |Bm  |  |
Back in my little town
D                       |C#m7-5 
Nothing but the dead and dying 
                 |Bm  |  |  |
Back in my little town

A             |F#m |
  In my little town

[Verse 4]
Am6              |D9        
    I never meant nothin'
             |G          |E7 |F |
I was just my fathers son
Bb          |F    |
   Saving my money
Bb            |F    |
   Dreaming of glory
Bb                 |F    
   Twitching like a finger
      |F+      A   |D  |  |
On the trigger of a gun
       |D                       |C#m7-5 
Leaving nothing but the dead and dying
                 |Bm  |  |
Back in my little town 

[Outro]
D                       |C#m7-5 
Nothing but the dead and dying 
        F#        |Bm  |  |
Back in my little town
D                       |C#m7-5 
Nothing but the dead and dying 
        |F#       |Bm  |  |  |
Back in my little town

D                       |C#m7-5 
Nothing but the dead and dying 
        |F#       |Bm  |  |  |
Back in my little town

Nice tab, thanks!

The chorus does not sound right to me, though.
I'd suggest:

| D | C#m7b5 | Bm | % |

e-B-G-D-A-E
C#m7b5 x-5-4-5-4-x

Thank you for posting this. I think that it should be Bb on "my mom doing . . . ."
I just listened to it, and that sounds correct.
