A Day In The Life

Beatles

 GBmEmEm7CC
 (intro)                                                
 GBmEmCEmAmCmaj7
 I read the news today, oh boy, about a lucky man who made the grade 
 GBmEmCFEmEm7
 And though the news was rather sad, well I just had to laugh      
 CFEmCmaj7
 I saw the photograph      

 GBmEmCEmAmCmaj7
 He blew his mind out in a car, he didn't notice that the lights had changed 
 GBmEmCF
 A crowd of people stood and stared, they'd seen his face before
 EmEm7C
 Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

 GBmEmCEmAmCmaj7
 I saw a film today, oh boy, the English army had just won the war 
 GBmEmCF
 A crowd of people turned away, but I just had to look
 EmEm7C
 Having read the book
 BmGG?E
I'd love to turn .... you .... on .... 

 ED
 Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head
 EF#m7EF#m7
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup, and looking up I noticed I was late
 ED
 Found my coat, and grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds flat
 EF#m7EF#m7
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke, and somebody spoke and I went into a dream

 CGDACGDA
 Ahhhhh...                                       Ahhhhh...                       

 GBmEmCEmAmCmaj7
 I read the news today, oh boy, four thousand holes in Blackburn Lancashire 
 GBmEmCF
 And though the holes were rather small, they had to count them all
 EmEm7C
 Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
 BmGG?E
I'd love to turn .... you .... on ....

I think the E? chord is an E7 fingered like this.


All strings open except the A string is fretted on the 2nd fret
turtle_plop (report comment to admin):
yeah the E? is actually an Em7, or in this case Em7 (Type 2)

Tip from Evert (Holland):

After the intermezzo (C-G-D-A C-G-D-A) I suggest you play: A-D-C-D G
