Everybody's Talkin' - chords, tab and comments


A strolling song about feeling comfortable with yourself, popalized and immortalized in the sixties by Harry Nilsson. Who remembers him? By the way, who remembers the author, Fred Neill? But everybody remembers the song.
A  A/G#     A/F#    A/G#  A  A/G#   A/F#    Bdim/F
everybody's talkin' at me I can't hear their voices 
E     E7          A    A/G#  A/F#  A/G#
only echoes of my mind
A  A/G#  A/F#  A/G#    A  A/G#  A/F#    Bdim/F
people stoppin' starin' I can't see their faces
E     E7              A   A/G# A/F# A7/E
only shadows of their eyes

D                   E         E7
I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
A           A/G#    A7/G
through the pourin' rain
D               E       E7       A
goin' where the weather suits my clothes
D               E          E7
bankin' off the north east wind
A              A/G#    A7/G
sailin' on the summer breeze
D                 E      E7     A    A/G#  A  A/G#
skippin' over the ocean like a stone
The line "A - A/G# - A/F# - A/G# - A - A/G# - A/F# - Bdim/F" may be simplified and substituted with "A - Amaj7 - A6 - Amaj7 - A" repeated, if you only strum the strings. Neill himself played it this way in the original recording.
