Key: E
{Here's correct, easy to play transcription of Simon and Garfunkel's version 
of song written by E. McCurdy in 1950. While this is not the song 
I would recommend for total beginners, it is good for intermediate 
guitar players to learn something new. I was searching for these online 
and since I couldn't find very correct chords, I used John McGann's Original 
Custom Transcription Service. The result is - this tab! If you have any 
questions or if you want to talk about Simon and Garfunkel, Beatles or any 
good music, write me an email! I think it will be interesting to see people 
writing me 10 years from this moment on.}

Play guitar the same as in 1st verse 

Lyrics: 
(And) when the papers all were signed 
And a million copies made 
They all joined hands and bowed their heads 
And grateful prayers were prayed 
And the people in the streets below 
Were dancing round and round 
And guns and swords and uniforms 
Were scattered on the ground
