The Boxer
by Paul Simon
from the Album “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”

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

I have squandered my resistance

For a pocketful of mumbles such are promises

All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear
C G C
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and family I was no more than a boy
G
In the company of strangers

In the quiet of a railway station running scared
Am G F
Laying low seeking out the poorer quarters where the ragged people go

Looking for the places only they would know

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

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

I Am A Rock
1965 by Paul SIMON

G C G
A winter’s day, in a deep and dark december;
am D7 C G am hm am hm
I am alone, gazing from my window to the streets below
am C D
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
C G C D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

G C G
I’ve built walls, a fortress deep and mighty,
am D7 C G am hm
That none may penetrate. I have no need of friendship;
am hm am C D
Friendship causes pain. It’s laughter and it’s loving I disdain.
C G C D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

G C G
Don’t talk of love, but I’ve heard the words before;
am D7 C G am hm am
It’s sleeping in my memory. I won’t disturb the slumber of feelings
hm am C D
That have died. If I never loved I never would have cried.
C G C D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

G C G
I have my books, and my poetry to protect me;
am D7 C G am hm am hm
I am shielded in my armor, hiding in my room, save within my womb.
am C D
I touched no one and no one touches me.
C G C D7 G
I Am A Rock, I am an island.

am D7 G
And a rock feels no pain;
am D7 G
And an island never cries!

The Sound of Silence
by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel

Tuning: EADGBE

Em D
Hello darkness, my old friend,
Em
I’ve come to talk with you again,
C G
Because a vision soft creeping,
Em C G
Left it’s seeds while I was sleeping,
C C/G G
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Em
Still remains
D Em
Within the sound of silence.

Em D
In restless dreams I walked alone
Em
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
Em C G
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp,
Em C G
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
C
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon

G
light
Em
That split the night
D Em
And touched the sound of silence.

Em D
And in the naked light I saw
Em
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
Em C G
People talking without speaking,
Em C G
People hearing without listening,
C G
People writing songs that voices never share
Em
And no one dare
D Em
Disturb the sound of silence.

Em D
Fools said i, you do not know
Em
Silence like a cancer grows.
Em C G
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Em C G
Take my arms that I might reach you.
C G
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
Em
And echoed
D Em
In the wells of silence

Em D
And the people bowed and prayed
Em
To the neon God they made.
Em C G
And the sign flashed out it’s warning,
Em C G
In the words that it was forming.
Em C
And the sign said, the words of the prophets
C G
Are written on the subway walls
Em
And tenement halls.
D Em
And whispered in the sounds of silence.

Teach Your Children Chords
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

Bascially, it’s D, G, and A with a Bm thrown in on the last line
of each verse.

In several places, you can play around with the A chord on the
B string. The pattern is A Asus A A* A. I use A* because I forget the
name. The chord structures are:

E A D G B E
A 0 0 2 2 2 0
Asus 0 0 2 2 3 0
A* 0 0 2 2 0 0

INTRO: D G D A

D G
You who are on the road
D A
Must have a code that you can live by
D G
And so become yourself
D A
Because the past is just a good-bye.

D G
Teach your children well,
D A
Their father’s hell did slowly go by,
D G
And feed them on your dreams
D A
The one they picks, the one you’ll know by.

D G D
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
Bm G A
So just look at them and sigh
D G A D
and know they love you.

And you, of tender years,
Can’t know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth,
They seek the truth before they can die.

Teach your parents well,
Their children’s hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you’ll know by.

Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

DANNY’S SONG-
Loggins and Messina

D D/C Bm
People smile and tell me I’m the lucky one
E A
And we’ve just begun, think I’m gonna have a son
D D/C Bm
He will be like she and me, as free as a dove
E A
Conceived in love, sun is gonna shine above

CHORUS:
G A
(And) even though we ain’t got money
D D/C# Bm
I’m so in love with you honey
G A D D/C# Bm
Everything will bring a chain of love
G A
And in the morning when I rise
D D/C# C
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
Bm E A
And tell me everything is gonna be all right

Seems as though a month ago I was down and tied
Never got high, oh I was a sorry guy
Now a smile, a face, a girl that shares my name
Now I’m through with the game, this boy will never be the same
CHORUS

Pisces Virgo rising is a very good sign
Strong and kind, and the little boy is mine
Now I see a family where there once was none
Now we’ve just begun, yeah, we’re gonna fly to the sun
CHORUS

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup
Drink it up, love her and she’ll bring you luck
And if you find she helps your mind, better take her home
Don’t you live alone, try to learn what lover’s own
CHORUS

Oh, when you were young, did you question all the answers

Did you envy all the dancers who had all the nerve

Look around you now – you must go for what you wanted

Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved
