Paul Simon – Something So Right tab ver. 2

This is such a great song.  It is well worth the effort to
learn to play it. No capo used and in standard tuning.

Oh Oh Oh something so right Lyrics: You've got the cool water, When the fever runs high. You've got the look of love-light in your eyes. And I was in crazy motion, 'Til you calmed me down. It took a little time, But you calmed me down. When something goes wrong, I'm the first to admit it. The first to admit it, But the last one to know. When something goes right, Well it's likely to lose me. It's apt to confuse me. It's such an unusual sight. I can't get used to something so right, Something so right. They've got a wall in China, It's a thousand miles long. To keep out the foreigners they made it strong. Oh, I've got a wall around me that you can't even see. It took a little time, To get next to me. When something goes wrong, I'm the first to admit it. The first to admit it, But the last one to know. When something goes right, Well it's likely to lose me. It's apt to confuse me. It's such an unusual sight. I can't get used to something so right, Something so right. Some people never say the words, "I Love You." It's not their style to be so bold. Some people never say those words, "I Love You." But like a child, They're longing to be told. When something goes wrong, I'm the first to admit it. The first to admit it, But the last one to know. When something goes right, Well it's likely to lose me. It's apt to confuse me. It's such an unusual sight. I can't get used to something so right, Something so right. Copyright © 1973 Paul Simon
