  Chords for "Why don't you write me?"

Words & music by Paul Simon 1969


Eb
Why don't you write me,

   |  
I'm out in the jungle,

   |F                  |  |
I'm hungry to hear you.

Bb7 
Send me a card,

    |
I am waiting so hard

     |Cm     |Gm |
To be near yo-ou.

Eb    |Ab       |
  (La, la, la)

             |Eb
Why don't you write?

            |
Something is wrong

                   |F7       |  |
And I know I got to be there.

Bb7         
Maybe I'm lost,

     | 
But I can't make the cost

      |Cm      |Gm |Eb
Of the airfare, ooh

        |Ab       |
 Tell me why, why, why

       |Bb       |   |
Tell me why, why, why


Eb           
Why don't you write me,

 |  
A letter would brighten

  |F                 |  |
My loneliest evening.

Bb7 
Mail it today

       |
If it's only to say

           |Cm         |Gm |
That you're Ieaving me, oo

Eb    |Ab     |Eb |Eb7 |
  (La, la, la)


Ab7                               |
Monday morning, sitting in the sun

                                       |
Hoping and wishing for the mail to come

Eb                        |Eb7 |
Tuesday, never got a word, mmm.

Ab7                                |
Wednesday, Thursday, ain't no sign,

                                |
Drank a half a bottle of iodine.

Eb 
Friday, woe is me

   |Eb7                        |Ab           |
I'm gonna hang my body from the highest tree.


              |Eb
 Why don't you write me?

              |Ab
 Why don't you write me?

 Why don't you write me?
