"A Day in the Life" by the Beatles.  Yet another goodie banned by the BBC-
because of the phrase "had a _smoke_". ho hum... Also too bad good ol'
Michael Jackson sold it to Maxwell House... though it is a pretty cool ad
(I guess)

(intro) G Bm Em Em7 (add D on B string) Em C..C Cmaj7 C+9 Cmaj7 (play with B)
G           Bm            Em Em7 Em  (you can add these notes on B string-
 I read the news today oh boy                   I'll omit them from now on)
C        Em            Am            Cmaj7 Cadd9 Cmaj7
 About a lucky man who made the grade
G               Bm              Em
 And though the news was rather sad
C       F                Em
 Well I just had to laugh
C         F         Em Cmaj7...
I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car / He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared / They'd seen his face before
Em                                                 C....
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

I saw a film today oh boy / The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away / But I just had to look
Having read the book....

C            Bm       G       Am7    Em
 I'd love to turn.... you.... on....

(stays on Em for awhile then goes to E-major)

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

 C   G   D   C   E   C   G   D   C
 E D C D G
