A good Early Simon song, co-written by Bruce Woodley. I am in a hurry right now, so I'll assume that you have the words. the chords, as I figre it are, line by line:

G Bm C G
G Bm C D
C D G Em
Am Bm C B7

tHEN THE CHORUS:
And I Em think it's gonna be all right
Am Yeah, the worst is over now,
The D morning sun is shining like a C red rubber
G 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.

Gary T- though I think Blue Jay may have it on this one, the song you are referring to was (I believe) popularized by Bobby Vee (not to be confused with Bobby Vinton), although I am not sure who wrote it.

I know someone who has the 45, so if indeed this is the song Guest 'J' is looking for, I can check to see if the author is credited on the disk. I can possibly give a listen and figure out the chords as well.

You know how sometimes you feel like a total doofus? I sure do this morning. It came to me, on my way to work, that when I said this "the style of it and its era (late 50's-early 60's) seems much more compatible with my understanding of Paul Simon" in my post above I was thinking not of Paul Simon, but of Neil Sedaka. Singer/songwriter, last name begins with "S"--major short circuit in the brain. So, no, I'm not totally clueless, but I guess the mind slips up occasionally. Whoops!
