Simon & Garfunkel American Tune

Many’s the time I’ve been mistaken, and many times confused

Yes and I’ve often felt forsaken, and certainly misused

Ah but I’m alright, I’m alright, I’m just weary thru my bones

Still you don’t expect to be bright and bon-vivant

So far away from home, so far away from home

And I don’t know a soul who’s not been battered

I don’t have a friend who feels at ease

I don’t know a dream that’s not been shattered or driven to its knees

But it’s alright, it’s alright, for we live so well, so long

Still, when I think of the road we’re traveling on

I wonder what’s gone wrong, I can’t help it I wonder what’s gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying, I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly

And looking back down at me, smiled reassuringly

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

But we come on a ship they called Mayflower

We come on a ship that sailed the moon

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

And it’s alright, oh 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
