I think it was on 'Rubber Soul'? Don't know for sure.
Well, here it is, with the first bit tabbed:
Paperback Writer
by John Lennon & Paul McCartney
It took almost 30 years to get this song on a computer :-)
(Original written in 1966, I wrote this on 01.01.1995)
Yip, it's the best two-chord song I've ever heard...
This is the intro bit:

D---0-3-----0-3--v---------0---3---v
A----------------v---3-------------v
E-3--------------v-3-----3---------v

And the complete lyrics & chords:
Paperback writer...
 G7
 Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look
It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
 C
 And I need a job so I want to be a paperback writer
 G7
 Paperback writer
 G7
 It's a dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
 C
 It's a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer
 G7
 Paperback writer
 G7
 It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two
I can make it longer if you like the style
 C
 I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer
 G7
 Paperback writer
 G7
   If you really like it you can have the rights
It could make a milion for you overnight
If you must return it you can send it here
 C
 But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer
 G7
 Paperback writer
 G7
 Paperback writer...
And I'll send this to Nevada, too :-)
