Title:                          AMERICA         (Simon & Garfunkle)


                C         Bm            Am        G          F
                Let us be lovers, we'll marry our fortunes together
                C             Bm          Am
                I've got some real-estate here in my bag
                Em                     A              Em          A
                So we bought a pack of cigaretts, and Mrs. Wagner pies
                    G      C      G    A  B C B Am
                And walked off to look for America

                C       B          Am          G            F
                Cathy I said as we boarded the Greyhound in Pittsburg
                C        B            Am
                Michigan seems like a dream to me now
                G
                It took me four days to hitch-hike from Saganaw
                D    G       D         Cmaj7
                I've gone to look for America

                Cmaj7                        D
                Laughing on the bus, playing games with the faces
                Cmaj7                                        D
                She said the man in the gaberdine suit was a spy
                G         F#          Em        A        D      Fmaj7
                I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera

                C         B         Am              G         F
                Toss me a cigarette I think there's one in my raincoat
                C              B          Am
                We smoked the last one an hour ago
                G                  A       Em                    A
                So I looked at the scenery, and she read her magazine
                       G    D    G A  B  CB Am
                An the moon rose over an open field

                C         B       Am             G            F
                Cathy I'm lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping
                    C         B          Am
                I'm empty and aching and I don't know why
                G
                Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
                        D   G       D        Cmaj7
                They've all gone to look for America
                        D   G       D        Cmaj7
                They've all gone to look for America
                        D   G       D        Cmaj7
                They've all gone to look for America

Fmaj7: x x 3 2 1 0   Am6:    x 0 2 2 0 2


NOTE:  At the end of each C C/B Am C/G F chord progression, there
is a small but important extra note.  While fingering the F chord
(1 3 3 2 1 1), quickly hammer on and then pull off the sus note
(1 3 3 3 1 1).  Do this twice each time.  Listen to the record to
get a better idea of what I mean.
