Red Rubber Ball
C           |Em         |F        |C
I should have known you'd bid me farewell.
         |C            |Em
There's a lesson to be learned from this
     |Am             |G7  |  |
and I learned it very well
F               |G
Now I know you're not 
        |C             |Am
the only starfish in the sea.
    |Dm             |Em
If I never hear your name again 
    |F             |G
it's all the same to me.
     |Am              |             | 
And I think it's gonna be all right.
Dm                |  
Yeah, the worst is over,
       |G             |              |F        |C 
The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.
C        |Em         |F        |C
You never cared for secrets I'd confide.
   |C               |Em       |
For you I'm just an ornament,
Am                |G7    |  |
Something for your pride.
F             |G            |
Always running, never caring,
C                 |Am   |
That's the life you live. 
Dm            |Em
Stolen minutes of your time 
    |F            |G7
were all you had to give.
     |Am              |             | 
And I think it's gonna be all right.
Dm                |  
Yeah, the worst is over,
       |G             |              |F        |C 
The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.
     C            |Em        |F           |C
The story's in the past with nothing to recall.
    |C              |Em        |
I've got my life to live and I 
Am                |G7   |  
don't need you at all.
   |F            |G             |
The roller coaster ride we took is
C          |Am   
nearly at an end.
 |Dm              |Em
I bought my ticket with my tears, 
      |F           |G
that's all I'm gonna spend.
     |Am              |             | 
And I think it's gonna be all right.
Dm                |  
Yeah, the worst is over,
       |G            |              |F       |C 
Now the morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball. 

Repeat Chorus:

then fade: 
             |G               |               |F         |C
 Yeah it's bouncing and it's shining like a Red Rubber Ball

The G7 sounds awkward. G sounds good to me. Spot on with the chords. Paul Simon Forever ^-^

I agree, the G7 doesn't sound quite right. Lovely tab though, thank you. Try playing it in G too, it sounds really nice and you can play with a D/F# in it which gives a lovely sound. x
