JOAN MANUEL SERRAT. LETRAS Y ACORDES DE GUITARRA

Siendo como soy nada proclive a la admiración hacia el trabajo de los cantautores y cantantes solistas españoles, tengo que reconocer que hay algunas excepciones que confirman la regla.

Estas excepciones vienen dadas por la confluencia de varias circunstancias como son la innata calidad del interprete como compositor musical; la excepcional sensibilidad poética que demuestran en cada uno de sus trabajos, y también, por que no decirlo, la simpatía que me producen sus recorridos vitales. Sus ideas.

Eso me pasa con Joaquín Sabina. Al cual ya le he dedicado algunos posts con sus letras, con sus canciones y sus correspondietes acordes para guitarra.

Ahora hago lo propio con otro de mis favoritos. Joan Manuel Serrat. Un poeta reivindicador de poetas. Un gran compositor y una gran persona.

Desde aquí, podéis bajaros una buena selección de canciones con sus acordes para guitarra.

 Y además un estupendo documento con todas las letras de sus poemas y unos comentarios de texto acerca de ellos.

THE BEATLES. LETRAS Y ACORDES

THE BEATLES

caricatura-the-beatles

  Beatles, Beatles, Beatles.

Todo está dicho ya.

Un grupo que en ocho años (entre 1962 y 1970) vende mas 400 millones de discos y que son el grupo mas conocido del mundo mundial. Solo ese dato.

 Esto no es un panegírico del extinto grupo. Ni un relato documentalista  de la vida y las tribulaciones de sus componentes . Porque intentar describir lo que significaron John, Paul, George y Ringo para toda una época ,no hablo ya de generación, en una simple presentación se presenta como una tarea imposible. Del todo imposible.

 Esto no es sino una recopilación de las letras de sus canciones adornadas, para quien le interese, con los acordes musicales .

 Vienen en una carpeta comprimida que a su vez contiene cada uno de los álbumes del grupo de Liverpool y dentro de estos las canciones que componen dicho álbum.

 Es una recopilación que recogí hace ya mucho tiempo y que pongo a vuestro alcance para quien le interese.

 Desde aquí la podéis descargar.

 Espero que os guste.

LEONARD COHEN. CANCIONES Y ACORDES.

leonard_cohen caricature

Podría repetir casi igual lo escrito en el post de las letras y acordes de Bob Dylan. Pues Leonard Cohen cumple los  mismos requisitos en cuanto a intemporalidad, en cuanto a su enorme calidad como compositor ,como poeta y también como el de Duluth( Dylan)  es poseedor de una peculiarísima  voz y de una calidad poética fuera de toda discusión..

 Cohen de 75 años ha vuelto a los escenarios tras quince años de ausencia forzado por una crisis económica provocada por el desfalco que le regaló su manager.

 Autor de una docena de libros y de una magnifica colección de poemas musicados ,seria una ardua tarea el citar las canciones que nos acompañaron de alguna manera en ciertos momentos de nuestra vida. Enriquecedoramente.

 So Long Marianne, The Partisan, Suzanne, Take this Waltz. First we take Manhattan, o la inconmensurable retahíla de grandisimas canciones de Ten New Songs.

 Su ultimo concierto en vivo Live in London es absolutamente recomendable.

 Leonard Cohen tiene una calidad humana , musical y literaria enorme. Es por eso que es un orgullo el poder incluir en este sitio las letras de su discografía con las notas para guitarra.

 Aquí las podéis ver y si queréis ,descargar.

 http://cid-9b5ad4b7dbd9e872.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/LEONARD%20COHEN

 Termino, para no variar con palabras del Maestro:

 Y a veces cuando la noche es lenta,
los desgraciados y los mansos,
reunimos nuestros corazones y vamos
a mil besos de profundidad.

 (A Thousand Kisses Deep)

Ladies and Gentlemen…Mr Leonard Cohen.

BOB DYLAN. ACORDES Y LETRAS CON TRADUCCION

Bob Dylan caricatura

 

Si tuviese que designar un ídolo entre todos los artistas a los que admiro ,no dudaría un solo momento.

 Ese artista sería Bob Dylan. Indiscutiblemente. Compositor, escritor y sobre todo poeta.

 Desde jovencito e influenciado por este, estuve a punto de perder todas mis amistades, absolutamente hartos de oírme durante horas  soplar una armónica para poder darle forma al Blowin´ in the Wind.

 No llegó la sangre al río. Pero aprendí a tocarla.

 La música y las letras de Dylan traspasan fronteras temporales y después de haber ganado el Oscar , el Premio Príncipe de Asturias y algunos premios Grammy además de Globos de Oro, solo le queda el Nobel de Literatura, que por cierto ya ha estado varias veces nominado y que sin duda ganará. Por lo menos eso espero yo.

 Que es un genio ,esta fuera de duda. Pero hay una circunstancia que lo indica: Cuando un artista es “homenajeado” en vida por sus propios compañeros.

 Cuando músicos de la talla de Leonard Cohen, Judy Collins, Joe Cocker o Ritchie Havens, por solo citar unos cuantos, graban temas de otro ,la admiración hacia este, está tácitamente expresada.

 

“Si Elvis liberó mi cuerpo, Dylan liberó mi mente”
(Bruce Springsteen)

 O cuando artistas españoles como Bumbury o Joaquín Sabina proclaman su admiración hacia este y su influencia en ellos y en sus trabajos,…No doubt!

 

Hay un hueco generacional, porque los chavales de veinte años no tienen Bobdylanes de veinte años”
(Joaquín Sabina)

 

  Y eso es lo que pasa con Dylan. Multitud de artistas versionan sus temas . Pero el que mejor versiona temas de Dylan es el mismo. Solo hay que oírlo a través de sus discos.

 Aquí presento la discográfia de Bob Dylan con sus letras en inglés. Y para adornarlas , las notas para guitarra de cada una de ellas.

 http://cid-9b5ad4b7dbd9e872.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/BOB%20DYLAN?uc=1&nl=1

 También esta dirección, que es de un sitio magnifico donde ,si queréis podéis leer o descargaros cada una de las letras y su respectiva traducción al castellano.

 Es una pagina ,ya digo magnifica, que solo merece el agradecimiento para su autor:

 Esta es:

 http://www.goddylan.com/Letras.htm

 Para despedir esta presentación, nada mejor que hacerlo con palabras del Maestro:

Nadie siente dolor alguno
esta noche mientras espero bajo la lluvia
todos saben
que mi chica tiene vestido nuevo
pero más tarde veo que sus cintas y sus lazos
han caído de sus rizos.
Ella aguanta como una mujer, sí, lo hace,
hace el amor como una mujer, sí, lo hace,
y sufre como una mujer
pero se echa a llorar como una niña

 (Just Like A Woman)

JOAQUIN SABINA LETRAS Y ACORDES

sabina

FIRMA SABINA

Conocí a Joaquín Sabina hace muchísimos años. El ,.por supuesto, no se acordará de mi.

Pero compartí algunas copas y muchas noches de canciones con el en el Pub Zambra de Pedregalejo. En la Málaga de principios de los Ochenta.

 Alguna vez también, compartimos mesa en el bar Malaca frente a la Residencia Militar en el Paseo Marítimo. Era callado.

 En Zambra llegué a verlo actuar alguna vez  con los componentes de La Mandrágora :Alfonso Pérez, Javier Krahe y el mismo.

 Le acompañaba un guitarra amigo llamado Antonio Sánchez,  a la sazón autor de la música de Pongamos que hablo de Madrid y posteriormente miembro de Académica Palanca.. Murió Antonio en el 2003.

 Sigamos con Sabina,.

 Después de esta pequeña introducción que solo ha servido para poder vacilar de haber conocido personalmente al gran poeta, pongo a vuestra disposición una recopilación de las letras de sus canciones.

 Así como una selección de acordes para guitarra que he recogido por la red. No se donde.

 Joaquín Sabina y sus poemas. Joaquín Sabina y su música. El poeta  que hizo, junto al Quevedo Alatriste, me acercase de alguna  manera a la lectura y a la mediana comprensión del soneto y su métrica.

 Joaquín Sabina uno de los poetas con mas sensibilidad y  con el don de poner la palabra adecuada en el momento y en el sitio preciso.

 El de la voz Dylaniana  rota por el tabaco y por la noche. El redimido Sabina aquí lo tenéis.  Me gustaba mas cuando no se cuidaba, pero hace bien en hacerlo. Nos durará mucho mas y eso, que duda cabe, nos conviene.

Puso un baile una jutía, para una gran diversión

de timbalero un ratón que alegraba el campo un día

Un gato también venía elegante y placentero

buenas noches compañero siempre fijo hacia el timbal

para ahi el tipo de tocar para descansar un poco

salió el ratón medio loco, también voy a descansar

y el gato en su buen bailar, bailaba un danzón liviano

el ratón se sube a guano y dice bien placentero

   Dm                 Am          E        Am

Sweet surrender on the quay side

Bm      F#m    A        E7         Bm

You remember we used to run and hide

        Bm                   F#m                         

In the shadows of cargoes, I take you on time,

A                     (D)-E    

Counting all the numbers

Down to the waterline

 

Near misses on the dogleap stairways

French kisses in the darkened doorways

Foghorn blowing out wild and cold

A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder

 

Lead 1  G / Bm / G / A / Bm

 

Up comes a coaster, fast and silent through the night

Over my shoulder, all you can see are pilot lights

No money in our jackets and jeans are torn

Your hands are cold but your lips are warm

she can still hear you whisper

Lets go down to the water line

Water of love deep in the ground,

In The Gallery

Mark Knopfler

-Originally released on Dire Straits-

Key: Am  or (A#m on the record)

 

Intro: drums and guitar                                      0.5  0.5 1.0

Am                         D  Am                   D  – Am    Am – C – D

Harry made a bareback rider     proud and free upon a horse 0.5  0.5 0.5

Am                    D                       D  – Am       Am – C – D

  And a fine coalminer      for the NCB that was

 

(repeat chord sequence ahead….)

 

A fallen angel and Jesus on the cross

A skating ballerina you should have seen her do the skater’s waltz

 

Some people have got to paint and draw

Harry had to work iin clay and stone

Like the waves coming to the shore

It was in his blood and in his bones

Ignored by all the trendy boys in London and in Leeds

 

        Am                                 D – G – C                    G    

CHORUS: He might as well have been making toys         or strings of beads

             C       C                 G      C slide D     

        He could’nt be…   He could’nt be…..         in the gallery

 

And then you get an artist says he doesn’t want to paint at all

He takes an empty canvas and sticks it on the wall

The birds of a feather all the phonies and all of the fakes

While the dealers they get together

And they decide who gets the breaks

And who’s going to be in the gallery

 

Solo: Follow 1 verse chord pattern

      and then do the chorus

 

No lies he wouldn’t compromise

No junk no bits of string

And all the lies we subsidise

That just don’t mean a thing

I’ve got to say he passed away in obscurity

And now all the vultures are coming down from the tree

So he’s going to be in the gallery

 

(keep chord sequence going

ie Am – D.C / Am – D.C)

Red sun, go down way over dirty town

 

Bm7             D             A       E9

 

Starlings are sweeping around crazy shoals

Her lucky stars give her just enough, … to get her home

Somebody at the airport

Say he’s at the station and he’s coming home alone

And a photography a taken in the hall

And you don’t have to worry with the previous release

Right now he’s saying nothing at all

But in the communique you know he’s gonna come clean

Think what he say

Say what he mean

Maybe on a Monday he’ll have something to say

       Dm          

   I’m just and ageing drummer boy

              C

   And in the wars I used to play

            Bb       

   And I’ve called the tune

                     Dm

   To many a torture session

            Dm

   Now they say I am a war criminal

           C

   And I’m fading away

   Bb                      Dm

   Father please her my confession

 

          G

   I have legalised robbery

   D

   Called it a belief

          G

   I have run with the money

       D

   And hid like a thief

          G

   I have re-written history

           D

   With my armies and my crooks

   D        C        Am7

   Invented memories

         D

   I did burn all the books

             Dm

   And I can still hear his laughter

             C                   Em    Emsus2+4

   And I can still hear his song

   Well I have tried to be meek

   And I have tried to be mild

   But I spat like a woman

   And sulked like a child

   I have lived behind walls

   That have made me alone

   Striven for peace

   Which I have never known

   And I can still hear his laughter

   And I can still hear his song

   The man’s too big

   The man’s too strong

 

   Well the sun rose on the courtyard

   And they all did hear him say

   ‘You always were a Judas

   But I got you anyway

   You may have got your silver

   But I swear upon my life

   Your sister gave me diamonds

   And I gave them to your wife’

   Oh father please help me

   For I have done wrong

   The man’s too big

   The man’s too strong

One World

Mark Knopfler

-Originally released on Brothers in Arms-

Can’t find no sleeves for my records

Can’t get no laces for my shoes

Can’t get no fancy notes

On my blue guitar

Can’t get no antidote for blues

 

Can’t find the reasons for your actions

Or I don’t much like the reasoning you use

Somehow your motives are impure

Or somehow I can’t find the cure

Can’t find no antidote for blues

 

They say it’s mostly vanity

That writes the plays we act

They tell me that’s what everybody knows

There’s no such thing as sanity

And that’s the sanest fact

That’s the way the story goes

 

Can’t get no remedy on my TV

There’s nothing but the same old news

They can’t find a way to be

One world in harmony

Can’t get no antidote for blues

Wherever I am, girl,

I am always walking with you,

But I look and you’re not there,

Whoever I’m with I’m always,

I’m always talking to you,

I’m always talking to you,

And I’m sad that you can’t hear,

Sad that you can’t hear,

It always adds up to one thing, honey,

When I look and you’re not there.

 

Em A D G D G  (repeat 4 times)

I need to know you,

Need to feel my arms around you,

Feel my arms surround you,

Like sea around a shore,

I pray in hope that I might find you,

In hope that I might find you,

Because hearts can do no more,

Can do no more.

It always adds up to one thing, honey,

Still I kneel upon the floor.

Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again

SAD LISA

Cat Stevens

 

e                                                               D         C

She hangs her head and cries in my shirt,

D                            e      D  G

she must be hurt very badly.

D                e  A

Tell me what’s making you sadly ?

e                 A                 D         C

Open your door, don’t hide in the dark,

D                            e                D     G

you’ve lost in the dark, you can trust me

D                    e   A

‘cause you know that’s how it must be.

e                A           H (H7)    e  D  e

Lisa, Lisa, sad Lisa, Lisa.

 

e                                                           D     C

Her eyes like windows tricklin’ rain,

D                    e       D    G

upon her pain getting deeper.

D                               e   A

Tho’ my love wants to relieve her.

e                 A               D              C

She walks alone from wall to wall,

D                e                             D          G

lost in a hall, she can’t hear me,

D                                 e         A

tho’ I know she likes to be near me.

e                A           H (H7)    e  D  e

Lisa, Lisa, sad Lisa, Lisa.

 

e                                                D         C

She sits in a corner by the door.

There must be more I can tell her,

D                  e            A

if she really wants me to help her,

e                   A               D          C

I’ll do what I can to show her the way.

Well I think it’s fine, building jumbo planes

D         G         D       G

Or taking a ride on a cosmic train

D         G           D      G

Switch on summer from a slot machine

Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass

For your lorryloads pumping petrol gas

And you make them long, and you make them tough

But they just go on and on, and it seems you can’t get off

 

Oh, I know we’ve come a long way

We’re changing day to day

But tell me, where do the children play?

 

C  Em  C  Em  A  D  G  D  G  D  G  D  G

 

When you crack the sky, scrapers fill the air

Will you keep on building higher

‘til there’s no more room up there?

C       G            C        G

Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?

C              G                       C      G

Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?

Em7             A

We’re changing day to day–hey

Em            A                    D    G   D  G

But tell me, where do the children play?

Oh the damage done.

 

I hit the city and I lost my band,

I watched the needle take another man,

Gone, gone, the damage done.

 

I sing the song because I love the man,

I know that some of you don’t understand;

milk-blood to keep from runnin’ out.

 

I’ve seen The Needle And The Damage Done,

A little part of it in everyone,

But every junkie’s like a settin’ sun.

Epitaph

King Crimson

 

Em                    D                 Am              B+  B

The wall on which the prophets wrote is cracking at the seams

Upon the instruments of death the sunlight brightly gleams

When every man is torn apart with nightmares and with dreams

Will no one lay the laurel wreath as silence drowns the screams

 

Em                      Bm

Confusion will be my epitaph

As I walk a cracked and broken path               C                      Bm

If we make it we can all sit back and laugh but I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying

 

Em                    D                 Am              B+  B

Between the iron gates of fate the seeds of time were sown

And watered by the deeds of those who know and who are known

Knowledge is a deadly friend when no one sets the rules

The fate of all mankind I see is in the hands of fools

 

 

 

Em                      Bm

Confusion will be my epitaph

As I walk a cracked and broken path               C                      Bm

If we make it we can all sit back and laugh but I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying

E      G7+         Am             B7

I talk to the wind the wind does not hear

Am       B7

The wind cannot hear

 

I am on the outside looking inside

What do I see

Much confusion desillusion all around me

 

I talk to the wind my words are all carried away

I talk to the wind the wind does not hear

The wind cannot hear

 

You don’t possess me don’t impress me

Just upset my mind

Can’t destruct me or conduct me

Just use up my time

AMERICAN PIE

A long, long time ago__

Am             C              Em                     D

I can still remember how that music used to make me smile.__

And I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance

.   Em               C           D

and maybe they’d by happy for a while.

Em            Am             Em              Am

But February made me shiver with every paper I’d deliver.

Bad news on the doorstep.  I couldn’t take one more step

Something touched me deep inside the day_ the music  died._____

You both kicked off your shoes,  Man I dig those rhythm and blues!

(D)On a hippie tra(A)il, head full of zom(Bm)bie  G  A

(D)I met a strange la(A)dy, she made me ner(Bm)vous  G  A

(Chorus)

 

“Do you come from a land down under?

Where women glow and men plunder?

Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?

You better run, you better take cover.”

 

Buying bread from a man in Brussels

He was six foot four and full of muscles

I said, “Do you speak-a my language?”

He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich

And he said,

 

“I come from a land down under

Where beer does flow and men chunder

Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder

You better run, you better take cover.”

 

Lying in a den in Bombay

With a slack jaw, and not much to say

I said to the man, “Are you trying to tempt me

Because I come from the land of plenty?”

And he said

 

“Oh! Do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)

Where women glow and men plunder?

Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?

You better run, you better take cover.”

Ghosts appear and fade away

 

 

E/B                  B

Alone between the sheets

 

D                     A

Only brings exasperation

 

E/B                              B

It’s time to walk the streets

 

D                     A

Smell the desperation

 

 

E/B                  B

At least there’s pretty lights

 

D                        A

And though there’s little variation

 

E/B                  B

It nullifies the night

 

D         ..A

From overkill…

Day after day it reappears

Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear

E                  D

If he hears, he’ll knock all day,

C#m                                 B

I’ll be trapped, and here I’ll have to stay.

E                          D

I’ve done no harm, I keep to myself;

C#m                                        B

There’s nothing wrong with my state of mental health.

I like it here with my childhood friend;

To watch them old Blue Ridge Mountains climb,

When I ride old number nine.

Down at the end of Chestnut street,

Where I can hear old number nine

As she comes down the line.

Please don’t tell what train I’m on

So they won’t know where I’m gone.

I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby, please…

How my poor heart aches
With every breath you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
Ill be watching you

Em                   Bm             C

Let’s don’t let a good thing die,  when honey,

D                G               C    G       D7

you know I’ve never,  lied to you;   Mmm,  yeah,  yeah!

 

 

Whiter Shade of Pale

Procol Harum

 

C Am F Dm G7 Em G7 C F G7

 

C                                  Am

We skipped the light fandango

F                                                           Dm

and turned cartwheels ‘cross the floor

G7                                         Em     G7

I was feeling kind of sea sick

C                                               Am         Em

but the crowd called out for more

F                                            Dm

the room was humming harder

G7                               Em  G7

As the ceiling flew away

C                                             Am     Em

When we called out for another drink

F                                  Dm

the waiter brought a tray

 

Chorus:

G7                             C

And so it was that later

F                                            Dm

As the miller told his tale

G7                                              Em

That her face at first just ghostly

G7           C      F        C

Turned a whiter shade of pale

 

She said there is no reason

and the truth is plain to see

but I wandered through my playing cards

would not let her be

one of sixteen vessel virgins

who were leaving for the coast

And although my eyes were open

They might just as well?ve been closed

 

Chorus

AMERICA

Simon & Garfunkel

 

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

Kathy Song

Paul Simon

 

G                            C                            G                  Am    Gsus   C/F#   D7/F#

I hear the drizzle of the rain,       like a memory it falls

G               D/F#     G     C                      Am      Gsus   D        G

Soft and warm, continuing                      tapping on my roof and walls

 

G                            C                            G                 Am      Gsus          C/F#    D7/F#

And from the shelter of my mind,     Through the window of my eyes

G             D/F#                       G                            C                Am         D                              C      G

I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets,    To England where my heart lies

 

(Hereճ where it goes to Dsus)

 

My mindճ distracted and diffused,     my thoughts are many miles away

 

They lie with you when youղe asleep,     and kiss you when you start your day

 

 

And a song I was writing is left undone       I donմ know why I spend my time

 

Writing songs I canմ believe     With words that tear and strain to rhyme

 

(Back to Dsus)

 

And so you see I have come to doubt      All that I once held as true

 

I stand alone without beliefs                   The only truth I know is you

 

 

And as I watch the drops of rain                            Weave their weary paths and die

 

I know that I am like the rain                  There but for the grace of you go I

Sounds of Silence

Paul Simon

 

H[Am]ello darkness my old fri[G]end,

I’ve come to talk with you ag[Am]ain.

Because a vi[C]sion softl[F]y creep[C]ing

Left it’s seed while I w[F]as sleep[C]ing,

And the vis[F]ion that was planted in my br[C]ain

Still rem[Am]ains

Wit[C]hin the s[G]ounds of si[Am]lence.

 

In restless dreams I walked alone,

Narrow streets of cobble stone.

‘Neath the halo of a street lamp,

I turned my collar to the cold and damp,

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light

That split the night

And touched the sounds of silence.

 

And in the naked light I saw

Ten thousand people, maybe more.

People talking without speaking,

People hearing without listening,

People writing songs that voices never shared,

And no one dared

Disturb the sounds of silence.

 

“Fools!” said I, “you do not know,

Silence like a cancer grows.

Hear my words that I might teach you,

Take my arms that I might reach you.”

But my words like silent raindrops fell…

And echoed in the wells of silence.

 

And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon gods they made.

And the sign flashed out its warning,

In the words that it was forming,

And the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls.”

And whispered in the sounds of silence.

 

 

The Boxer

 Paul Simon        

 

 

C                                                Am

I am just a poor boy, though my story’s seldom told

G

I have squandered my resistance

C

For a pocketful of mumbles such are promises

Am            G                  F

All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear

C      G    C

And disregards the rest

Am

When I left my home and family I was no more than a boy

G

In the company of strangers

Dm7        C

In the quiet of a railway station running scared

Am           G                F

Laying low seeking out the poorer quarters where the ragged people go

G              F    Em   Dm    C

Looking for the places only they would know

Am

Lie-la-lie

G

Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie

Am

Lie la lie

G                       F           G   C

Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

Am

Asking only workmans wages I come looking for a job

G

But I get no offers

Dm7              C

Just a come-on from the whores on seventh avenue

Am                 Dm7     G     F                                 C

I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome I took some comfort there

G               C

Ooo-la-la la la la la

 

Am

Lie-la-lie

G

Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie

Am

Lie la lie

G                       F           G   C

Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

 

C

Then I’m laying out my winter clothes

G7  C              Am

And wishing I was gone

G             Dm7      G7               G  C

Going home where the New York City winters aren’t bleeding me

Am

Leading me

G

Going Home

C                                            Am

In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade

G

And he carries the reminders

G7               C                        Dm7     G7        C

Of ev’ry glove that laid him down or cut him ‘till he cried out

Am

In his anger and his shame

G              F                              C

“I am Leaving, I am Leaving.”  But the Fighter still remains

 

G C  G      F      C

 

Am

Lie-la-lie

G

Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie

Am

Lie la lie

G                        F             Am

Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

Am              E       Am

C            F  G       F       C             F     C         E

Aw, but it’s alright, it’s alright for we lived so well so long

F         G                 C        D       G

Still when I think of the road we’re travelin’ on

And I dreamed I was dying…

I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly

G      C  Am     C          G

And looking back down on me smiled reassuringly

And I dreamed I was flying….

 

 

Am      C   G              E      Am

And high up above my eyes could clearly see

The Statue of Liberty – sailing away to sea

And I dreamed I was flying….

 

 

C                    F         C          G

For we come on the ship they call Mayflower

Am         E          Am

We come on the ship that sailed the moon

We come in the ages most uncertain hours and sing an American Tune

Aw, but it’s alright, it’s alright you can’t be forever blessed

F         G                 C        D       G

C         F     C  G        E           Am       C         G          C

And I’m trying to get some rest, that’s all I’m trying to get some rest
