HOMEWARD BOUND (Simon & Garfunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok


     G              
I'm sitting in the railway station.
      D/F#                Dm6/F  E 
Got a ticket for my destination.
Am            
On a tour of one night stands
    F               
My suitcase and guitar in hand.
    G              
And every stop is neatly planned
                 G  -   D7 G
For a poet and a one-man band.

 G        C
Homeward Bound,
          G
 I wish I was,
         C   
Homeward Bound,
 G             Am   =   G= F= C
Home where my thought's escaping,
 G            Am=G  =  F= C
Home where my music's playing,
 G              Am = G =  F= C
Home, where my love lies waiting
D7        G     
Silently for me.

Every day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me
The movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see
Reminds me that I long to be,

Homeward Bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward Bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home, where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

Tonight I'll sing my songs again,
I'll play the game and pretend.
But all my words come back to me
In shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me.

Homeward Bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward Bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home, where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.
Silently for me.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair:

 Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;

Remember me to one who lives there.

She once was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt:
   (On the side of a hill in the deep forest green.)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
   (Tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground.)
Without no seams nor needle work,
   (Blankets and bedclothes the
   child of the mountains)
Then she'll be a true love of mine.
   (Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.)

Tell her to find me an acre of land:
   (On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves.)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
   (Washes the grave with silvery tears.)
Between the salt water and the sea strand,
   (A soldier cleans and polishes a gun.)
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather:
   (War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions.)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
   (Generals order their soldiers to kill.)
And gather it all in a bunch of heather,
   (And to fight for a cause they've
   long ago forgotten.)
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

I am a rock (Simon & Garfunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok


            G 
A winter's day
      C               G    
In a deep and dark December;
Am-D7 - C  G
I  am alone,
Am      -      Hm7    Am        -      Hm7
Gazing from my window to the streets below
      Am      -      C                D -
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
C       G -
I Am A Rock,
C       D  G  Em G
I am an island.

I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship;
 friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I Am A Rock,
I am an island.

Don't talk of love,
But I've heard the word before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I won't disturb the slumber of
 feelings that have died.
If I never loved, I never would have cried.
I Am A Rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I Am A Rock,
I am an island.
        Am7 = D7       G
And the rock feels no pain;
       Am7 =  D7     G   
And an island never cries.

 Resting in my arms again.

June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;

And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September I'll remember.
A love once new has now grown old.

A most peculiar man (Simon & Garfunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok


D                       
 He was A Most Peculiar Man.
Em            
 That's what Mrs. Riordan said
                   A7
 and she should know;
              D          
She lived upstairs from him
G                 A7             D  
She said he was A Most Peculiar Man.

D                       
 He was A Most Peculiar Man.
Em                     
 He lived all alone within a house,
            A7           D  G
Within a room, within himself,
A7                D  
 A Most Peculiar Man.

D                               
 He had no friends, he seldom spoke
    Em                   
And no one in turn ever spoke to him,
                                 
'Cause he wasn't friendly and he didn't care
A7                   D
 And he wasn't like them.
    G            A7             D  
Oh, no! he was A Most Peculiar Man.

D                  
 He died last Saturday.
   Em                        
He turned on the gas and he went to sleep
                                
With the windows closed so he'd never wake up
                            
To his silent world and his tiny room;
    
And Mrs. Riordan says he has
    
 a brother somewhere
A7                      D 
 Who should be notified soon.
     G       -      A7
And all the people said,
          D  -            Hm |
 "What a shame that he's dead,
     G          A7             D  
But wasn't he A Most Peculiar Man?"

RICHARD CORY (Simon & Garfunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok


     Dm                             C
They say that Richard Cory owns one half
              
 of this all town,
        Dm                     A
With political connections to spread
              
 his wealth around.
 G                                
Born into society, a banker's only child,
       Dm -  C       F
He had everything a man could want:
  A                     F
 power, grace and stile.

    F             Dm     
But I  work in his factory
       G                  
And I curse the life I'm living
                   
And I curse my poverty
                       
And I wish that I could be,
      F                Dm
Oh I wish that I could be,
      G                
Oh I wish that I could be
        Dm    
Richard Cory.

The papers print his picture almost
 everywhere he goes:
Richard Cory at the opera,
 Richard Cory at a show.
And the rumor of his parties and the
 orgies on his yacht!
Oh, he surely must be happy with
 everything he's got.

But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I'm living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be,
Oh I wish that I could be,
Oh I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

He freely gave to charity, he had
 the common touch,
And they were grateful for his
 patronage and thanked him very much,
So my mind was filled with wonder
 when the evening headlines read:
"Richard Cory went home last night
 and put a bullet through his head."

But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I'm living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be,
Oh I wish that I could be,
Oh I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

Kathy’s song (Simon & Gafunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok


G            C             G 
 I hear the drizzle of the rain
Am      Em   C    Hm7 
 Like a memory it falls
G         Hm7     G   C 
 Soft and warm continuing
Am       Em     D       G - C G-C G-C G-C
 Tapping on my roof and walls.

And from the shelter of my mind
Through the window of my eyes
I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets
To England where my heart lies.

My mind's distracted and diffused
My thoughts are many miles away
They lie with you when you're asleep
And kiss you when you start your day.

And a song I was writing is left undone
I don't know why I spend my time
Writing songs I can't believe
With words that tear and strain to rhyme.

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.

Leaves that are green (Simon & Garfunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok


D                Em         A7            D  
I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song.
                        G -  C       D  
I'm twenty-two now but I won't be for long
 G           A7 
Times hurries on.
         D      C        G  A7         D   
And the Leaves That Are Green turn to brown,
         Hm                 
And they wither with the wind,
         Em7             A7  
And they crumble in your hand.

Once my heart was filled with the love of a girl.
I held her close, but she faded in the night
Like a poem I meant to write.
And the Leaves That Are Green turn to brown,
And they wither with the wind,
And they crumble in your hand.

I threw a pebble in a brook
And watch the ripples run away
And they never made a sound.
And the Leaves That Are Green turn to brown,
And they wither with the wind,
And they crumble in your hand.

Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello,
Good-bye, Good-bye, Good-bye, Good-bye,
That's all there is.
And the Leaves That Are Green turn to brown.

The sound of silence (Simon & Garfunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok


Am                      G
 Hello darkness, my old friend,
G                             Am
 I've come to talk with you again,
Am    -     C           F  -  C
 Because a vision softly creeping,
C                          F  -  C - C
 Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
         F               F             C
And the vision that was planted in my brain
         C - Am
Still remains
C     -      G - G   Am
 Within The Sound Of Silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'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 Sound 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 share
And no one dare
Disturb The Sound 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 god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming.
And the signs said: "The words of the prophets
 are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls."
And whisper'd in The Sound Of Silence.
