        Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes - Paul Simon
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tuning: Standard

Paul Simon
Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes (1986)
(Paul Simon, Intro: Paul Simon/Joseph Shabalala)



The a capella intro is in E, the song in F. I suggest using a 
capo 3rd fret and play D (C# for the intro). That way it is 
easy to play the licks between the vocal lines. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the main turnaround. Incorporate the voicings into your individual 
strumming pattern.

Capo 3rd fret

INTRO (a capella; the chords follow the vocal harmonies)
        C#              
She's a rich girl, she don't try to hide it
C#               
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
       C#         
He's a poor boy, empty as a pocket
C#                      
Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose
        F#        C#
Sing Ta-na-na, Ta-na-na-na,
        Ab                           C#
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes (a-wa-a-wa)
   F#         C#
Ta-na-naa, Ta-na-naa-na
        Ab                           C#
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes (a-wa-a-wa)
Ab                           C#
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes (a-wa-a-wa)
Ab                           C#
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes (a-wa-a-wa)
Ab                           C#
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

D
People say she's crazy
          G               A            D      Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
She's got diamonds on the soles of her shoes,
G               A                  D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
Well that's one way to lose these, walking blues

Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

        D                 
She was physically forgotten 
         G               A                  D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
Then she slipped into my pocket with my car keys
            G            A                  D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
Said you've taken me for granted, because I please you 
              G      A     D    Dsus4 D Dsus4 D      G   A
Wearing these di-i-i-i-i-i-iamonds


                D           G     A     D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
And I could say oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
      G         A              D        Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
As if everybody knows what I'm talking about
      G                    A                       D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
As if everybody here would know exactly what I was talking about
              G               A            D   Dsus4 D Dsus4 D    G   A
Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes

D  Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
 She makes the sign of a teaspoon
G            A           D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
He makes the sign of a wave
    G                A                   D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
The poor boy changes clothes and puts on aftershave
   G                  A          D     Dsus4 D Dsus4 D      G   A
To compensate for his ordinary shoes
             D           Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
And she said honey take me dancing but they
G           A             D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
Ended up by sleeping in a doorway
         G             A               D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
By the bodegas and the lights on upper Broadway
        G               A            D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D    G   A
Wearing diamonds on the soles of her shoes

  
                D           G     A     D       Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
And I could say oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
      G         A              D        Dsus4 D Dsus4 D
