Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
-----------------------------------------------------


From the album 'Magical Mystery Tour'

Tabbed by Howard Wright

There are two other versions of this in the archives, but none are in the
right key. I thought a great song such as this deserved a proper tab in the
archives.


Because the recording of this song involved a lot of playing around with
tape speeds, you need to tune down your guitar by a whole step.

So instead of tuning your bottom string to E, tune to D, then tune the other
strings to this by playing at the 5th/4th fret (you know the routine ...)

You should end up tuned to DGCFAD.

This means that the song is based on the C chord for the guitar, but it
ends up being in the key of Bb.

I've tried to give a guitar part that does justice to all the things that are
going on in the song. For the first bit it's fairly straight forward since the
song has a guitar playing here - but later on I've tried to tab out a guitar
version of what the cellos and trumpets are doing.

Of course you can't play all of the song on just one guitar - but you can do
a pretty good job. I've written the chords above each line of tab if you just
want to strum along, and the words are underneath the line of tab.

Intro :
---------

This is played on the mellotron, but you can do it fairly easily on guitar.

This is the little downwards scale played on a harp-like instrument.
Leave all strings to sustain as much as possible.

PENNY LANE

I'm posting this song in two different versions. The First is written
as the song is heard--in B and modulating to A during the chorus. The
second version employs a capo to help make the chords more guitar-
friendly. Technically its still in B, but the chord shapes are those
of the key of A, modulating to G.


B C#m7 F#7sus4
Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
F#7 B Bm
Of every head he's had the pleasure to have known.
Bm/G# Bm/G
And all the people that come and go
F#7sus4 F#7 F#7sus4 F#7
Stop and say hello.


B C#m7 F#7sus4
On the corner is a banker with a motor car.
F#7 B Bm
The little children laugh at him behind his back.
Bm/G# Bm/G
And the banker never wears a mac
F#7sus4 F#7 E
In the pouring rain. Very strange.


A A/C# D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
A A/C# D
There beneath the blue suburban skies,
F#
I sit and meanwhile back,


B C#m7 F#7sus4
In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass.
F#7 B Bm
And in his pocket is a portrait of the queen.
Bm/G# Bm/G
He likes to keep his fire engine clean,
F#7sus4 F#7 F#sus4 F#7
It's a clean machine.

B C#m7 F#sus4 F#
B Bm
Bm/G# Bm/G
F#7sus4 F#7 E


A A/C# D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
A A/C# D
For a fish and finger pie,
F#
In summer meanwhile back,


B C#m7 F#7sus4
Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout
F#7 B Bm
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
Bm/G# Bm/G
And though she feels as if she's in a play,
F#7sus4 F#7 F#sus4 F#7
She is anyway.


B C#m7 F#7sus4
Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer.
F#7 B Bm
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim.
Bm/G# Bm/G
And then the fireman rushes in
F#7sus4 F#7 E
From the pouring rain. Very strange.


A A/C# D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
A A/C# D
There beneath the blue suburban skies,
F#
I sit and meanwhile back,


B B/Eb E
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
B B/Eb E
There beneath the blue suburban skies.
B
Penny Lane!
