Let it Be  John Lennon/Paul McCartney

Wh[G]en I find myself in t[D]imes of trouble,
Mo[Em]ther Mary c[C]omes to me,
Sp[G]eaking words of w[D]isdom, let it [C]be.[G]
And in my hour of da[D]rkness,
She is st[Em]anding right in f[C]ront of me,
Sp[G]eaking words of w[D]isdom, let it [C]be.[G]

Let it [Em]be, let it [D]be, let it [C]be, let it [G]be.
Whisper words of wis[D]dom, let it [C]be.[G]

And [G]when the broken [D]hearted people
[Em]Living in the [C]world agree,
[G]There will be an [D]answer, let it [C]be.[G]
But though there may be [D]parted,
There is [Em]still a chance that [C]they will see,
[G]There will be an an[D]swer, let it [C]be.[G]

Let it [Em]be, let it [D]be, let it [C]be, let it [G]be.
There will be an ans[D]wer, let it [C]be.[G]

And [G]when the night is [D]cloudy,
There is [Em]still a light that [C]shines on me,
[G]Shine until tom[D]orrow, let it [C]be.[G]
I wake up to the [D]sound of music,
Mot[Em]her Mary [C]comes to me,
[G]Speaking words of [D]wisdom, let it [C]be.[G]

Let it [Em]be, let it [D]be, let it [C]be, let it [G]be.
Whisper words of wis[D]dom, let it [C]be.[G]

Mary was Paul's mother. Whenever he was troubled, she would say "let it be".

Stephen Loch Bowie (report)

For you songleader types, this is a much better key for group singing. I find that the song still has currency, even with teens of this century.

doobiedoo (report)

goguita (report)

well, i have a book that says Mary was jhon's aunt. he lived in her house all is childhood and adolescence, because his mother Julia was gone and his father just left them. but i dont know if this book was written with a touch of fantacy or it's the truth :s

goguita (report)

Bob Cummins (report)

This song was written by Paul McCartney, not John Lennon.

It strikes me that it sounds at its best when capo'ed on the third fret...

Dunno whether that makes it as the beatles did it, but since I'm plying on a gutar, and they played it as a piano track, i feel a little of the accuracy is gone anyway...

White Coyote (report)

I prefer using C G Am and F.

Just throwing that out there.

The key you put this in isn't the key of the recording, however if you transpose it up 5 semitones that's the key of the recording...other than that the chord progression is correct.
