This trasncription is not entirely complete and may need editing!
I can't really take credit for this song cause Lara Hughes typed it up
and mailed it to me,but she said it was OK to post it.
I think part of the song is missing (the ending?) and I think some of the
chord changes may be slightly off, but don't know the song well enough
to fix it or even be sure it needs fixing.
If you can: PLEASE fix it and send it back to me and/or repost!
(I mean really minor stuff, like the ending "Momma don't take..."
or if the chord is typed over the wrong syllable!)

. KODACHROME By Paul Simon
. F F7 Bb
When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school
Gm C7 F Gm
It's a wonder I can think at all.
C7 F F7 Bb (is there a riff here?)
And though my lack of education hasn't hurt me none,
Gm C7 F
I can read the writing on the wall.
. F7 Bb D7 (G7) Cm F
. Kodachrome, They give us those nice bright colors,
. Bb Eb [Cm]
. They give us the greens of summers,
. C F Bb D G
. Makes you think all the world's a sunny day. Oh yeah,
. Cm F Bb Eb
. I got a Nikon camera, I love to take a photograph,
. Eb C7 F Bb
. So momma, don't take my Kodachrome away.
. F C7 Bb
If you took all the girls I knew when I was single
Gm C7 F Gm
And brought them all together for one night,
C7 F F7 Bb
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination,
Gm C7 F
And ev'rything looks worse in black and white.
_________Please edit this song if you can and send it to me! Thanks, Sennet.

Since I have many songs typed but have only got a few back so far I am
going to try including a req list with every song I post.
My most wanted list: (Hopefully lyrics + chords but tab or chordpro)
is better than nothing.
Cat Stevens: (if you even send lyrics I'll add chords and send back) Tuesday's dead, Two Fine People, Changes IV, Don't Be Shy, I Never Wanted,
If you want to sing out, Ready, Wigwam, others.
Cheap Trick: California Man, Dream Police, Surrender, I Want You to Want Me,
C,S & N: Our house, Love the one you're with, Marrakesh Express
Can't buy me love, I want to hold your hand
Steve Miller. (any hits)
Eagles: Best of my love
The River (The boss)
old easy Bryan Adams
Billy Joel: Just The Way You Are, The Longest Time, Always a Woman, many others
old Huey Lewis (esp. "Do you believe in love")
J Geils Centerfold
Sammy Hagar-Your Love is Driving Me Crazy
Pretenders from "Learning to crawl"
Eddie Money Two Tickets to Paradise, other hits.
Also I would like ASCII versions of songs that have been posted in Chordpro.
I intend to keep posting songs as I get them typed. I have tons of books and
will take requests if you send me a song that I want in a format I can use
Incidentally, a while back I already typed a bunch in a weird format that I
would standardize for you (it's a chore) if you need them. However, I don't
really have the time to reformat them unless you are willing to fill one of
my requests. I'll send any/all of what I have to you if you'll send me and of
the above songs in an easy to play format.
Some of the songs I could reformat:
. Billy Joel It's Still Rock and Roll to me
. Billy Joel She's Got a Way
. Cat Stevens Wild World (and others)
. Cindi Lauper Time after time
. Elton John Crocodile Rock
. Paul Davis '65 Love Affair
. Jim Croce I got a name in D
I believe I've already posted American Pie, Can't keep it in, My Life,
How Can I Tell You,and Baby I love your way, (all in SIMP)
I still have those and others if you missed the posts.
Also, I have a couple songs that I changed a lot after they were posted on
the net (i.e. chords put with every line or lyrics corrected)
I can post these if there is an interest:
We can work it out in D (diff lyrics)
But I might Die Tonight (not in chordpro)
Leader of the band
Lookin' out my backdoor
Down on the corner
Old Time R&R in E
Twist and Shout in D (diff key?)
Let it be
(Unless the song is _really_ easy these songs are SIMP:
chords with every line, printable on 1 page, chord charts.
This makes it easy for beginners to practice.
(many songs I entered also have easier chord substitutions.)
Calling Bill Clinton a tax-and-spend "Liberal" is almost as funny as
the "environmental" president asking for "trust'
