Song title: Bye Bye Love
Performed by: Simon and Garfunkel
Chords interpreted by: Hans Julian Sloman
The song seems to be using only the chords B, F# and C# (and E5 in the intro);
however there are multiple ways of creating those sounds.
Another version available on here tells you to play
A, E, and B, (and D5) while using a capo in 2nd fret.
However getting from E to B can be awkward for beginners,
so here's a version that I came up with that might make it
easier for you, while still being able to play along with the song
(e.g. not in a different key):
Capo 7th fret
Bye bye, love.
Bye bye, happiness.
I think I'm gonna cry.
Bye bye, love.
Bye bye, sweet caress.
I feel like I could die.
Bye bye, my love, goodbye.
There goes my baby
With someone new.
She sure looks happy;
I sure am blue.
She was my baby
'till he stepped in.
Goodbye, to romance
That might have been.
I'm through with romance.
I'm through with love.
I'm through with counting
The stars above,
And here's the reason
That I'm so free:
My lovin' baby
Is through with me.
(repeat and fade) Goodbye, my love goodbye.
(some more notes:
-7th fret is quite far up for a capo, so it only works on good acoustics or
-play A5 simply like a normal A except you only hit the A, D and G string/or
you can mute the B string.
-If you don't care for playing/singing along with the record, there are lots
of easy variations available (e.g. Transposing, with change of key).
For example you could play C, G, and D; or D, A, and E; or you can play the
version described here without a capo.
