a day in the life

Beatles


[ok... I'm still awake so...]

"A Day in the Life" by the Beatles.  Yet another goodie banned by the BBC-
because of the phrase "had a _smoke_". ho hum... Also too bad good ol' 
Michael Jackson sold it to Maxwell House... though it is a pretty cool ad
(I guess)

(intro) G Bm Em Em7 (add D on B string) Em C..C Cmaj7 C+9 Cmaj7 (play with B)
G           Bm            Em Em7 Em  (you can add these notes on B string-
 I read the news today oh boy                   I'll omit them from now on)
C        Em            Am            Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7 
 About a lucky man who made the grade
G               Bm              Em  
 And though the news was rather sad
C       F                Em
 Well I just had to laugh
C         F         Em Cmaj7...
I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car / He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared / They'd seen his face before
Em                                                 C....
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

I saw a film today oh boy / The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away / But I just had to look
Having read the book....

C            Bm       G       Am7    Em
 I'd love to turn.... you.... on....

(stays on Em for awhile then goes to E-major)

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

 C   G   D   C   E   C   G   D   C
 Ahhh....
 E D C D G

I heard the news today oh boy / Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small / They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I'd love to turn... you... on...

This version is OK, if you want the correct chord progression, email me (ramesparza2@yahoo.com) and I'll send it to you the way my band did it (from the 1968 album) in a MS-WORD attachment.
