Mother and Child Reunion chords
Paul Simon (Paul Simon 1972)

A F#m 2x

F#m   D         E        A
No, I would not give you false hope 
        D           E        A
On this strange and mournful day 
        D          E       A  F#m
But the mother and child reunion 
   D      F#m     E
Is only a motion away 
A E
O h 

       F#m             E
Little darling of mine. 
                A          E
I can't for the life of me 
           F#m
Remember a sadder day
                E
I know they say let it be 
                       F#m         A
But it just don't work out that way 
        F#m           D
And the course of the lifetimes runs 
         E
Over and over again.
 
F#m   D         E        A
No, I would not give you false hope 
        D           E        A
On this strange and mournful day 
        D          E       A  F#m
But the mother and child reunion 
   D      F#m     E
Is only a motion away 
A E
O h 

       F#m             E
Little darling of mine. 
               A          E
I just can't believe it's so 
                F#m
Though it seems strange to say 
             E
I never been laid so low 
             F#m         A
In such a mysterious way 
        F#m           D
And the course of the lifetimes runs 
         E
Over and over again.

F#m   D         E        A
But I would not give you false hope 
        D           E        A
On this strange and mournful day 
         D          E       A  F#m
When the mother and child reunion 
   D      F#m     E
Is only a motion away 
A E
O h 

       D          E       A
oh the mother and child reunion 
   D      F#m     A
Is only a motion away 
       D          E       A  F#m
oh the mother and child reunion 
   D      F#m     E
Is only a moment away 
A E
O h

       D          E       A
oh the mother and child reunion 
   D      F#m     A
Is only a motion away 
       D          E       A  F#m
oh the mother and child reunion 
   D      F#m     E
Is only a moment away 
A E
O h . . .

Yeah, you're right about the title issue. I submitted my reading of this song yesterday under the correct title only to find that it was accepted today under this truncated title ("Mother and Child" version 4). Why do they do that? Strange ...

Checked out the link - it is the album version, the same that I've been listening to. I still do not hear all these chords that are suggested here. The | F#m E A E | at the beginning of each verse just does not sound right to me. I hear different chords in the chorus too than the ones given here (not D and F#m at the end but their relative minor and major chord "is [Bm]only a [A]moment a[[E]way"; I think a F#m is missing too here over "re[A]u[F#m]nion").

10 votes and a 5-star rating for this tab - I may be wrong. Keep up the good work!
