Maxwell's Silver Hammer  Lennon/McCartney

[D]Joan was quizzical, [B7]studied pataphysical [Em]science in the home,
[A7]late night all alone with a test tube, [D]oh, oh, oh, [A]oh.
[D]Maxwell Edison, [B7]majoring in medicine, [Em]calls her on the phone.
[A7]Can I take you out to the pictures, [D]Jo-o-o-o[A]an?
But, [E7]as she's getting ready to go, a [A7]knock comes from the door:

[D]Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came [E7]down upon her head.
[A7]Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made [Em]sure that [A7]she was [D]dead.

[D]Back in school again, [B7]Maxwell plays the fool again, [Em]teacher gets annoyed.
[A7]Wishing to avoid an unpleasant [D]sce-e-e-[A]ene.
[D]She tells Max to stay [B7]when the class has gone away,
[Em]so he waits behind. [A7]Writing fifty times [D]"I must not be so-o-o-[A]o.
But, [E7]when she turns her back on the boy, he [A7]creeps up from behind:
Chorus:
[D]Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came [E7]down upon her head.
[A7]Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made [Em]sure that [A7]she was [D]dead.

[D]P.C. thirtyone [B7]said "We've caught a dirty one.", [Em]Maxwell stands alone.
[A7]Painting testimonial pictures, [D]oh, oh, oh, [A]oh.
[D]Rose and Valerie, [B7]screaming from the gallery, [Em]say he must go free.
[A7]The judge does not agree. [D]And he tells them so-o-o-[A]o.
But, [E7]as the words are leaving his lips, [A7]a noise came from behind:

Chorus:
[D]Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came [E7]down upon her head.
[A7]Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made [Em]sure that [A7]she was [D]dead.
