A DAY IN THE LIFE

The Beatles.


[
G] I read the [Bm] news today oh [Em] boy
[
C] About a [Em] lucky man who [Am] made the grade [Cmaj7]
[
G] And though the [Bm] news was rather [Em] sad
[
C] Well I just [F] had to laugh [Em]
[
C] I saw the [F] photograph [Em][Cmaj7]

[
G] He blew his [Bm] mind out in a [Em] car
[
C] He didn't [Em] notice that the [Am] lights had changed [Cmaj7]
[
G] A crowd of [Bm] people stood and [Em]stared
[
C] They'd seen his [F] face before

[Em] Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of [C] Lords

[
G] I saw a [Bm] film today oh [Em] boy
[
C] The English [Em] Army had just [Am] won the war [Cmaj7]
[
G] A crowd of [Bm] people turned [Em] away
[
C] But I just [F] had to look
[
Em] Having read the [C] book
[
C] I'd love to [Bm] turn [G] you [Am7] on [Em]

[E] Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a [
A] comb across my head
Found my [
E] way downstairs and [A] drank a cup
And [
E] looking up, I [A] noticed I was late
Found my [
E] coat and grabbed my hat,
Made the [
A] bus in seconds flat
Found my [
E] way upstairs and [A]had a smoke
And [
E] somebody spoke and I [A] went into a dream
[
C] Ahhh [G][D][C][E][C][G][D][C][E][D][C][D][G]

[
G] I heard the [Bm] news today oh [Em] boy
[
C] Four thousand [Em] holes in Blackburn, [Am] Lancashire [Cmaj7]
[
G] And though the [Bm] holes were rather [Em] small
[
C] They had to [F] count them all
[
Em] Now they know how many holes it [Em7] takes to fill the Albert [C] Hall
[
C] I'd love to [Gmaj7] turn [G] you [Am7] [E] on
