Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Red Rubber Ball (Paul Simon)
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: rubber ball
BlueJay, the chorus you posted is to "Red Rubber Ball", a chart hit for The Circle (I believe) in the mid-60's. I had no idea that Paul Simon helped write that one. I'm wondering if Jorkensteinfeld was inquiring about the song that goes, in part, "like a rubber ball, I come bouncing back to you". Don't know who wrote that one, but the style of it and its era (late 50's-early 60's) seems much more compatible with my understanding of Paul Simon. Jork, I'm sorry I can't recall more than a few snippets of it at this time.
