YOU CAN PLAY ALONG IN APPROXIMATELY THE SAME KEY in GCEA tuning, if you put your capo on the 1st fret! The recording is a little sharp so it's not quite a match. Thanks to Chris Hill for bringing this song to BUG!

"April Come She Will" originally appeared on the solo album The Paul Simon Songbook. It is the B-side to the hit single "Scarborough Fair/Canticle". It is included on The Graduate soundtrack album and was additionally released on the "Mrs. Robinson" EP in 1968, together with three other songs from The Graduate film: "Mrs. Robinson", "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", and "The Sound of Silence". The song was written in 1964 while Paul Simon was in England. Its lyrics use the changing nature of the seasons as a metaphor for a girl's changing moods. The inspiration for the song was a girl that Simon met and the nursery rhyme she used to recite, "Cuckoo". It is the shortest song on the album.
