Blessed
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit
Blessed is the lamb whose blood flows
Blessed are the sat upon, spat upon, ratted on
O Lord, why have you forsaken me?
I got no place to go
I've walked around Soho for the last night or so
Ah, but it doesn't matter, no

Blessed is the land and the kingdom
Blessed is the man whose soul belongs to
Blessed are the meth drinkers, pot sellers, illusion dwellers
O Lord, why have you forsaken me?
My words trickle down from a wound
That I have no intention to heal

Blessed are the stained glass, window pane glass
Blessed is the church service makes me nervous
Blessed are the penny rookers, cheap hookers, groovy lookers
O Lord, why have you forsaken me?
I, I have tended my own garden
Much too long

Very 1960's music production....jingly jangly like the Byrds.....but has a Beatles flavour too.

Jonny Birchyboy

That’s the classic Wrecking Crew sound

John Costello

Sometimes jingly jangly just 'works'.
Personally I think it needs a heavier bass

amy dougies

There was a group out of Texas in the 60's called The Loose Ends that recorded a song called "He's A Nobody" and I can't help to think they heard this S&G song and were inspired by it.

Beautiful, such an underrated song

Kevin Chouinard

A song about the Beattitudes. Bravo S&G!
