  Chords for "A Most Peculiar Man"

Words & music by Paul Simon 1965

        |D   |         |    |  |
He was A Most  Peculiar Man.

Em           |                       |                |
  That's what Missus Riordan said and she should know;

A7            |D          |   |
   She lived upstairs from him

G                 |A7           |D
 She said he was A Most Peculiar Man.


        |D   |         |    |  |
He was A Most  Peculiar Man.

Em      |             |     
He lived all alone within a house,

   |          |A7         |D    |G  |
Within a room,   within himself,

A7               |D
  A Most Peculiar Man.


         |D       |          |     | 
He had no friends,  he seldom spoke

   |Em                 |          
And no one in turn ever spoke to him,

         |                      |           |
'Cause he wasn't friendly and he didn't care

A7                   |D
   And he wasn't like them.

   |G           |A7           |D   |  |  |
Oh, no! he was A Most Peculiar Man.


            |D  |  |    |
He died last Sa-aturday.

  |Em                      |       
He turned on the gas and he went to sleep

        |                      |
With the windows closed so he'd never wake up

      |                    |
To his silent world and his tiny room;

   |                            |                 |
And Missus Riordan says he has a brother somewhere

A7             |        |D    |
  Who should be notified soon.

   |G             |A7           |D              |Bm
And all the people said, "What a shame that he's dead,

   |G          |A7           |D
But wasn't he A Most Peculiar Man?"
