Bleecker Street
--------------

This is a brilliant song from their first album. Paul Simon's guitar
playing is amazing. The reason it sounds so good is that it's capoed at
the 9th fret to get those really high twangy sounds. He plays two very
similar parts, I've transcribed this from the guitar in the LH speaker. 
I've included the intro, first verse and the end. The intervening verses
are nearly identical but there are certain variations mainly on the D/F#
and the G/C parts but all are included somewhere in the tab for the first
verse. Listen to the record for them. Paul Simon Travis picks throughout
(as usual). Anyway here it is....

Other verses
------------
Voices leaking from a sad cafe
Smiling faces try to understand
I saw a shadow touch a shadow's hand
On Bleecker Street

The poet reads his crooked rhyme
Holy holy is his sacrament
Thirty dollars pays your rent
On Bleecker Street

I heard a church bell softly chime
In a melody sustaining
It's a long road to Canaan
On Bleecker Street


Notes:
------
The bass note of the D/F# must be played with the thumb
hooking over the guitar's neck. The bass note G in brackets in bar 5 can
be played but only if you break the Travis pattern, it's optional.
