I Am A Rock

Song Author Paul Simon Lyrics by: Paul Simon Performer: Simon and Garfunkel Submitted by: MagS
A winters [C]day in a [F]deep and dark de[C]cember
[Dm]I    [G7]am a   [F]lone[C]    
[Dm7]gazing from my [Em7]window [Dm7]to the streets be[Em]low   
on a [Dm]freshly fallen [F]silent shroud of [G]snow

[F]I am a [C]rock [F]I am an [G7]is   [C]land[Am]    

I've built [C]walls a [F]fortress deep and [C]mighty
that [Dm]none [G7]may    [F]pene[C]trate
I [Dm7]have no need of [Em7]friendship, [Dm7]friendship causes [Em7]pain    
It's [Dm]laughter and it's [F]loving I dis[G]dain

[F]I am a [C]rock [F]I am an [G7]is   [C]land[Am]    

Dont talk of [C]love I've [F]heard the word be[C]fore
It's [Dm]sleeping [G7]in my [F]memor[C]y  
I [Dm7]won't disturb the [Em7]slumber of [Dm7]feelings that have [Em7]died    
if I [Dm]never loved I [F]never would have [G]cried

[F]I am a [C]rock [F]I am an [G7]is   [C]land[Am]    

I have my [C]books and my [F]poetry to pro[C]tect me
I am [Dm]shield[G7]ed    [F]in my ar[C]mour
[Dm7]hiding in my [Em7]room     [Dm7]safe within my [Em7]womb    
I [Dm]touch no one and [F]no one touches [G]me  

[F]I am a [C]rock [F]I am an [G7]is   [C]land

And a [Dm7]rock     [G7]feels no [C]pain
and an [Dm7]island [G7]never [C]cries

A winters day in a deep and dark december
I am alone
gazing from my window to the streets below
on a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow

I am a rock I am an island

I've built walls a fortress deep and mighty
that none may penetrate
I have no need of friendship, friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain

I am a rock I am an island

Dont talk of love I've heard the word before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
if I never loved I never would have cried

I am a rock I am an island

I have my books and my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armour
hiding in my room safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me

I am a rock I am an island

And a rock feels no pain
and an island never cries
