Lyrics for Jonah by Paul Simon:

Verse 1
Half an hour, change your strings and tune up
Sizing the room up
Checking the bar
Local girls, unspoken conversation
Misinformation
Plays guitar

Chorus
They say Jonah, he was swallowed by a whale
But I say there’s no truth to that tale
I know Jonah
He was swallowed by a song

Verse 2
No one gives their dreams away too lightly
They hold them tightly
Warm against cold
One more year of traveling ‘round this circuit
Then you can work it into gold

Chorus
They say Jonah, he was swallowed by a whale
But I say there’s no truth to that tale
I know Jonah
He was swallowed by a song

Outro
Here’s to all the boys who came along
Carrying soft guitars in cardboard cases
All night long
And do you wonder where those boys have gone?
Do you wonder where those boys have gone?
