Paul Simon – American Tune lyrics

the time I've been mistaken and, many times confused And
I've often felt forsaken and, certainly misused But.
it's all right it's, all right I'm, just weary to my bones Still
you, don't expect to be bright and Bon Vivant So
far away from home so, far away from home I.
don't know a soul who's not been battered Don't
have a friend who feels at ease Don't
know a dream that's not been shattered Or
driven to it's knees But.
it's all right all, right We've, lived so well so long Still
when, I think of the road we're traveling on I,
wonder what went wrong I, can't help it I
wonder what went wrong And.
I dreamed I was flying I. dreamed my soul rose Unexpectedly
and, looking back down on me smiled, Reassuringly
and, I dreamed I was dying And.
far above my, eyes could clearly see The
Statue of Liberty drifting, away to sea And
I dreamed I was flying We.
come on a ship we call the Mayflower We,
come on a ship that sailed the moon We
come at the age's most uncertain hour And
sing the American tune But
it's all right it's, all right You
can't be forever blessed Still
tomorrow's, gonna be another working day And
I'm trying to get some rest That's,
all I'm, trying to get some rest
