Still Crazy After All These Years

Words & Music:

Paul Simon


         G    G7          C                 F7

I met my old lover on the street last night.

    G                 F#dim7            Bsus4  B7  Em7(3)

She seemed so glad to see me, I just smiled.

Ebm7   Dm7               G7               C                    C#dim7

And we talked about some old times and we drank ourselves some beers.

      G           D7        Em

Still crazy after all these years.

C#dim7    G           D7        Cm   D7  G  C  G  Gsus4  G

Oh, still crazy after all these years.


I'm not the kind of man who likes to socialize.

I seemed to lean on old, familiar ways.

And I ain't no fool for love songs that whisper in my ears.

Still crazy after all these years.

C#dim7    G           D7        Cm   D7  G9(3)

Oh, still crazy after all these years.


AM7                    E            Em

Four in the morning -- crapped out, yawning.

G#m7       C#sus  C#  F#M7

Longing my life-– a---way.

Em7        B  C     B   C      G  G7

I'll never worry -- why should I?

     C         B   C   B   C   B   Am7   G

It's all gonna fade.


       G         G7           C             F7

Now, I sit by my window and I watch the cars.

  G                 F#dim7          Bsus4   B7   E

I fear I'll do some damage one fine day.

D/E   A               A7          D          D#dim7

But I would not be convicted by a jury of my peers.

      A           E   E#dim7  F#m

Still crazy after all these-- years.

D#dim7      A            D  G  D        A           E7        A   D   A

Oh--, still crazy, still crazy--, still crazy after all these years.
