American Tune

 (Paul Simon) (G2)
1. Many's the time I've been mistaken and many times confused
Yes and I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused
Aw, but I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm just weary to my bones
Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant
So far away from home, so far away from home

2. And I don't know a soul who's not been battered
I don't have a friend that's feels at ease
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to it's knees
Aw, but it's alright, it's alright for we lived so well so long
Still when I think of the road we're travelin' on
I wonder what's gone wrong, I can't help but wonder what's gone wrong

     And I dreamed I was dying...
     I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
     And looking back down on me smiled reassuringly
     And I dreamed I was flying....

3. For we come on the ship they call Mayflower
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
Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day
And I'm trying to get some rest, that's all I'm trying to get some rest

     And I dreamed I was flying....
     And high up above my eyes could clearly see
     The Statue of Liberty - sailing away to sea
     And I dreamed I was flying...
