I am a rock - Simon & Garfunkel

	    C        F               C
A winter's day in a deep and dark december;
D  G7   F C
 I am alone.
 d7             e7    d7                e7
Gazing from my window to the streets below.
       d             F                 G
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
F       C    F       G7 C
I am a rock, I am an island.

I've build 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.

Don't talk of love; but 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.
C      d7   G7       C           d7      G7     C
And a rock feels no pain. And an island never cries.
