Me And Julio Ukulele Chords - Paul Simon

This is a song I really like to play, and is pretty simple. I think it suits the voice of the ukulele perfectly.

Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard - Paul Simon

Intro: [G] [C][G] [D7] x 4

[G] The mama pajama rolled out of bed
And she ran to the police [C] station

When the [D7] papa found out he began to shout
And he started the investi[G]gation

It's against the [D7] law it was against the [G] law
What the mama [D7] saw it was against the [G] law

[G] Now mama looked down and spit on the ground
Every time my name gets [C] mentioned

And [D7] papa say Oy if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of de[G]tention

I'm on my [C] way I don't know [G] where I'm goin'
I'm on my [C] way I'm takin' my [G] time but I [A] don't know [D7] where
Goodbye to [C] Rosie the Queen of Co[G]rona
See me and [F] Julio [C] down by the [D] school[G]yard [C] [G] [D7]
See [G] me and [F] Julio [C] down by the [D] school[G]yard

[Whistle solo to chords In chorus]

[G] In a couple of days they come and take me away
But the press let the story [C] leak

And when the [D7] radical priest come to get me released
It was all on the cover of [G] Newsweek

See [G] me and [F] Julio [C] down by the [D] school[G]yard [C] [G] [D7] [G]
