Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds  The Beatles

LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS - The Beatles
Main riff goes like this:
[A] [A-7] [D] [D/F]  
 
 I---------------------------I---------------------------I
 I-----------17------17------I----------17-----15p14-----I
 I-------14--------------14--I------14---------------14--I
 I---14----------17----------I--16----------15-----------I
 I---------------------------I---------------------------I
 I---------------------------I---------------------------I

These are just permutations of an A chord so you could play this down
on the second fret if you have an acoustic guitar. On electric, this riff
sounds really good when it sustains.
Follow the pattern or play the chords for the verse:
Pi[A]cture your[A-7]self in a [D]boat on a [D/F]river
A A-7 D D/F ---> G
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Som[A]ebody c[A-7]alls you, you [D]answer quite [D/F]slowly
 
 A A-7 F#m ---> Dm ---> C

A girl with kaleidiscope eyes
PRECHORUS:
C[Bb]ellophane flowers of [C]yellow and green [F]towering over your [Bb]head
(slow bend)
 
 eI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
 bI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
 gI--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w---5^1/2--5^w-5^w-I-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5\3I

[C]Look for the girl with the [G]sun in her eyes and she's [D]gone
 
 eI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
 bI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
 gI--5^w-5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w--5^w---5---4---I--2-----------I

CHORUS:
[G]Lucy in the [C]Sky with [D]Diamonds. [G]Lucy in the [C]Sky with [D]Diamonds
G C D D ---> A
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.
To make D/F chord:
[D/F]  
 
 I-----0----I
 I-----3----I
 I-----2----I
 I-----3----I
 I-----x----I
 I-----x----I

^w - means whole bend
^1/2 - means half bend
 
 ------------------------------------------

cut here
 
 ------------------------------------------

Here is how I play it : (not like the above)
 
 |--------12-------12-----------12---------9-8-------|
 |----10----------------9-----------9-----------9----|
 |-9-----------12----------10-----------9------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------|

I think that's right. It's off the top of my head,
no guitar in front of me.
Good luck!
