Let it Be

{st:John Lennon/Paul McCartney

Capo 1

 GD
When I find myself in times of trouble,
 EmC
Mother Mary comes to me,
 GDCG
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
 D
And in my hour of darkness,
 EmC
She is standing right in front of me,
 GDCG
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

 EmDCG
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
 DCG
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

 GD
And when the broken hearted people
 EmC
 Living in the world agree,
 GDCG
 There will be an answer, let it be.
 D
But though there may be parted,
 EmC
There is still a chance that they will see,
 GDCG
 There will be an answer, let it be.

 EmDCG
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
 DCG
There will be an answer, let it be.

 GD
And when the night is cloudy,
 EmC
There is still a light that shines on me,
 GDCG
 Shine until tomorrow, let it be.
 D
I wake up to the sound of music,
 EmC
Mother Mary comes to me,
 GDCG
 Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

 EmDCG
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
 DCG
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

The key you put this in isn't the key of the recording, however if you transpose it up 5 semitones that's the key of the recording...other than that the chord progression is correct.

I prefer using C G Am and F.


Just throwing that out there.

It strikes me that it sounds at its best when capo'ed on the third fret...


Dunno whether that makes it as the beatles did it, but since I'm plying on a gutar, and they played it as a piano track, i feel a little of the accuracy is gone anyway...

This song was written by Paul McCartney, not John  Lennon.

goguita (report comment to admin):
well, i have a book that says Mary was jhon's aunt. he lived in her house all is childhood and adolescence, because his mother Julia was gone and his father just left them. but i dont know if this book was written with a touch of fantacy or it's the truth :s
doobiedoo (report comment to admin):

Stephen Loch Bowie (report comment to admin):
For you songleader types, this is a much better key for group singing.  I find that the song still has currency, even with teens of this century.
Riverdales (report comment to admin):

Mary was Paul's mother.  Whenever he was troubled, she would say "let it be".
