A day in the life


[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 Em G Am7 Em I'd love to turn.... you.... on....
(stays on Em for awhile then goes to E-major)
E D Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head E B7 Found my way downstairs and drank a cup And looking up, I noticed I was late E D Found my coat and grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds flat E B7 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... -- todd j. derr - the c.o.m.a. moderator!
