Subject: CRD: Mother and Child Reunion by Paul Simon

This is one of the first songs I ever 
learned, it is quite beautiful. This is 
a post of how I remember figuring it out 
about seven years ago. I am not sure if all 
the lyrics are correct. It is arranged 
for a nylon string acoustic guitar playing 
mostly open cords.



Mother and Child Reunion
By: Paul Simon
CRD by: Jonah Colman

C	C	D	D	G	G	G	G
No I would not give you false hope

C	C	D	D	G	G	G	G
on this strange and mournful day

C	C	D	D	G	G	Em	Em
but the mother and child reunion 
Am	Am	G	G	D	D	D	D
is only a moment away....


D	D	Em	Em	Em	Em
o.o.oh little darling of mine
D	D	D	D
I can't for the life of me

Em	Em	Em	Em
remember a sadder day

D	D	D	D
I know they say let it be

Em	Em	Em	Em
but it just don't work out that way
C	C	C	C
And the course of a lifetime runs
D	D	D	D	
over and over again



C	C	D	D	G	G	G	G
But I would not give you false hope, No!

C	C	D	D	G	G	G	G
on this strange and mournful day

C	C	D	D	G	G	Em	Em
but the mother and child reunion

Am	Am	G	G	D	D	D	D
is only a motion away



D	D	Em	Em	Em	Em
o.o.oh little darling of mine 

D	D	D	D
I just can't believe its so

Em	Em	Em	Em
and though it seems strange to say

D	D	D	D
I've never been laid so low

Em	Em	Em	Em
in such a mysterious way 

C	C	C	C
And the course of a lifetime runs

D	D	D	D
over and over again



C	C	D	D	G	G	G	G
But I would not give you false hope, No!

C	C	D	D	G	G	G	G
on this strange and mournful day

C	C	D	D	G	G	Em	Em
but the mother and child reunion

Am	Am	G	G	D	D	D	D	G
is only a motion away..away..away  away
