Simon & Garfunkel
[A] I'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a [Amaj7] ticket for my destina[A7]tion, mmm[F#]mmm
[Bm] On a tour of one-night stands my [G] suitcase and guitar in hand.
And [A] ev'ry stop is neatly planned for a [E7] poet and one-man ba[A]nd.
Homeward [D] bound, wish I [A] was, Homeward [D] bound,
[A] Home where my [Asus4] thought's escaping
[A] Home where my [Asus4] music's playing,
[A] Home where my [Asus4] love lays waiting
[E] Silently for [A] me.
[A] Ev'ry day's an endless stream
Of [Amaj7] cigarettes and magaziA7]nes, mmm [F#]mmm
And [Bm] each town looks the same to me, the [G] movies and the factories
And [A ] ev'ry stranger's face I see re[E7]minds me that I long to be-—[A]e,
[A] Tonight I'll sing my songs again,
I'll [Amaj7] play the game and prete[A7]nd, mmm[F#]mmm
But [Bm] all my words come back to me in [G] shades of mediocrity
Like [A] emptiness in harmony I [E7] need someone to comfort me—[A]e.
[Amaj7]Silent[A7]ly for [A]me.
