NOTES
for 
"A Hazy Shade of Winter"
  • Paul Simon plays this song in D minor. I noticed in at least one YouTube video he plays it with the capo on the fifth fret. If you prefer to play it in D minor without a capo, CLICK HERE for tabs. (It's very similar: Dm - C7 - B♭7 - A7.)
  • The underlying chord progression for this riff in my video is: Am - G7 - F7 - E7.
  • Notice that three of the notes are hammered on (indicated by the letter "h" in the tabs provided below the video).
  • If you are playing the riff with a flat pick, be sure to strictly maintain the down and up movement of the pick throughout.

  A Hazy Shade of Winter

Am                                          G
Time, Time, Time, see what's become of me,
            F                              Em
While I look around, for my possiblities,
              G
I was so hard to please,
              Am                          G
But look around, leaves are brown,
              F           E7                  Am
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter.


                               G
Hear the Salvation Army band.
F
Down by the riverside there's got to be a better ride
          Em
than what you've got planned.
 G
Carry your cup in your hand,
                Am                             G                             F
And look around, leaves are brown now, and the sky,
        E7                  Am
is a hazy shade of winter.

                              G
Hang onto to your hopes, my friend,
F
That's an easy thing to say
                                                          Em
but if your hopes should pass away simply pretend
G
That you can build them again 
         Am                           G                            F
Look around, the grass is high, the fields are ripe,
           E7                       Am
Its the springtime of my life......

F                                        C maj 7 
Seasons change with the scenery,
                              G
Weaving time in a tapestry
                                Am     Em   Am
Won't you stop and remember me,
                  G
  at any convenient time?
F
Funny how my memory slips looking over manuscripts
         Em
    of unpublished rhyme,
 G
Drinking my vodka and lime,
           Am,                       G                              F
I look around, leaves are brown now, and the sky,
         E7                   Am
  is a hazy shade of winter
         G                            F                        E7                              Am
Look around, leaves are brown, there's a patch of snow on the ground. 3x
