The neck of my Guitar
  Chords for "Hearts and Bones"

Words & music by Paul Simon 1982


E               |              |  |
One and one-half wandering Jews

       |          |         |      |
Free to wander wherever they choose

   |            |     
Are travelling together

      |          |      
In the  Sangre de Cristo

   |                | 
The  Blood of Christ Mountains

  |B         |  |  |  |
Of New Mexico

Bm7 C#m7|D#m7-5         |       |
On  the  last leg of the journey

D#dim     |              |C#m7    |  |
      They started a long time ago

C#m6    |        |Bmaj7      |  |  |
     The arc of a love affair
 
               |Amaj9      |   |  |  |
Rainbows in the high desert air

E         |      |             |A     |  |  |
  Mountain passes slipping into stones

          |E    |  |  |
Hearts and bones

       G#m7/D#|C#m  |  |  |
Hearts and     bones

           |E    |  |  |  |  |  |  |
 Hearts and bones


         |E          |             |  |
 Thinking back to the season before

       |                |             |    |
Looking back through the cracks in the door

   |           |     
Two people were married

   |          |      
The act was outrageous

   |            | 
The bride was contagious

   |B                  |  |  |  |
She burned like a bride

Bm7   C#m7|D#m7-5        |          |D#dim
These e  - vents may have had some effect

      |            |C#m7       |    |  |
On the man with the girl by his side


C#m6    |        |Bmaj7      |  |  |
     The arc of a love affair

                 |Amaj9   |    |  |  |
His hands rolling down her hair

E          |         |               |A    |  |  |
  Love like lightning shaking till it moans


          |E    |  |  |
Hearts and bones

       G#m7/D#|C#m  |  |  |
Hearts and     bones

           |A(addB) |A |A(addB) |
 Hearts and bones

A           |E    |  |  |  |  |  |  |
  Hearts and bones

   |E    F#m |E/G#  A        |E   |  |  |  |
And whoa whoa whoa, she said, why?

            |                 |
Why don't we drive through the night

         |               |A       |  | 
And we'll wake up down in   Mexico

   |E |  |  |  |            |              |
 Oh I,          I don't know nothin' about, 

                |A       |  |  |
nothin' about no   Mexico

       |E  |  |
Tell me why

             |
Why won't you love me

   |        |       |A  |  |  |
For who I am where I am?

               |Am                    |        |    |  |
He said: 'Cause that's not the way the world is baby

E/G# |                  |         |  |Em/G |
      This is how I love you, baby

                  |      |  |E |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |
This is how I love you, baby

E               |              |  |
One and one-half wandering Jews

 |               |              |  |
Returned to their natural coasts

    |          |           |
To resume old acquaintances

           |                
 Step out occasionally

   |         |            |B               |  |  |  |
And speculate who had been damaged the most

Bm7 C#m7|D#m7-5     |          |D#dim     |
Eas-y    time will determine if these consolations

    |C#m7           |  |
Will be their reward

C#m6    |        |Bmaj7      |  |  |
     The arc of a love affair

          |Amaj9|      |  |  |
Waiting to be  restored

E             |              |               |A  |  |
  You take two bodies and you twirl them into one

      |                |E    |  |
 Their hearts and their bones

         |            |A   |  |  |
 And they won't come undone

          |E    |  |  |
Hearts and bones

       G#m7/D#|C#m  |  |  |
Hearts and     bones

          |A(addB) |  |  |
Hearts and bones

          |E    |
Hearts and bones


Fade:

E |  |  |  |
