Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard


by Paul Simon
Mama pajama rolled out of bed 
And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out,
He began to shout, and he started the investigation

A - - - /   /   / D - - - /   / E - - - /   /   / A - - - /   //

 B:	It's against the law, it was against the law
What the mama saw, it was against the law

E - - - /     / A - - - /     /  x4  //

The mama looked down and spit on the ground
Every time my name gets mentioned
The papa said "Oy, if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention"

 C:	Well I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm goin'
I'm on my way. I'm taking my time
But I don't know where
Goodbye Rosie the Queen of Corona
See you, me and Julio down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio down by the schoolyard

D - - - /   / A - - - /   / D - - - /   / A - B - / E - - - / D - - - / - - G - / A - - - /    /
A - G - / D/F# - E - / A - D - / A - E - /  x4  //
 B:	( D - - - /   / A - - - /    / D - - - /    / A - - - / E - - - / D - - - /    / A - - - /    /
A - G - / D/F# - E - / A - D - / A - E - /  x4  //) (Solo)

In a couple of days they come and take me away
But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest come to get me released
We was all on the cover of Newsweek

 C:	Well I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm goin'
I'm on my way. I'm taking my time
But I don't know where
Goodbye Rosie the Queen of Corona
See you, me and Julio down by the schoolyard
See you, me and Julio down by the schoolyard
