Distractions  Paul McCartney

[Gm] What is this thing in [Am7]life
that persuades [Dm]me to spend time away from [Gm]you?
[Gm] If you can answer t[Am7]his you can have the m[Dm]oon.[D7/9]
[Gm] This is the place to[Am7] be
anyway you can [Dm]see there’s a lovely v[Gm]iew.
[Gm] Why are there always [Am7]so many other things to [D]do?[Dsus4-D]
( Tab from: )
Dist[Bb]ractions, like [Eb]butterflies are b[F]uzzing ‘round my h[Gm]ead,
when[Gm/F] I’m a[Eb]lone I think of y[F]ou.
And the [Gm]life we’d lead if we could [Gm/F]only be f[Eb]ree
fr[F]om these dis[Bb]tractions.[Eb] [F] [Gm]
The postman’s at the door
while the telephone rings on the kitchen wall,
pretend we’re not at home and they’ll disappear.
I want to be with you,
tell me what I can do, nothing is too small
away from all this jazz we could do anything at all.
Distractions, like butterflies are...
Inter:(Am Bm7 Em Am Bm7 Em E7/9 Am Bm7 Em Am Gm)
I’ll find a peaceful place
far away from the noise of a busy day,
where we can spend our nights counting shooting stars.
Distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head,
when I’m alone I think of you,
and the things we’d do if we could only be through
with these distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head,
when I’m alone I think of you,
And the life we’d lead if we could only be free
form these distractions.
