The Beatles - A Day in the Life: chords

G           Bm           Em  Em7
I read the news today oh boy,
C        Em           Asus2
About a lucky man who made the grade.
G               Bm             Em Em7
And though the news was rather sad,
C            F      Em  Em7
Well I just had to laugh,
C           F       Em C
I saw the photograph.

G            Bm           Em  Em7
He blew his mind out in a car,
C          Em              Asus2
He didn't notice that the lights had changed,
G           Bm                Em  Em7
A crowd of people stood and stared,
C                F
They'd seen his face before,
Em                        Em7                       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

             Bm  Em  Asus2 Bm
I'd love to turn you on....

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

 C         G        D     A E
Aah ah ah ah Aah ah ah Ah ah
 C         G        D     A E D C D G
Aah ah ah ah Aah ah ah Ah ah

I read the news today oh boy,
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire.
And though the holes were rather small,
They had to count them all,
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.

I'd love to turn you on
