Song: Paperback Writer
Artist: The Beatles

I prefer to play the opening like this:


e:-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B:-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G:-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D:---------5-----3---------------------------------------------------|
A:---3--5--------------3-----3--5------------------------------------|
E:3-----------3-----3-----3------------------------------------------|

It sounds better than the open strings in the previous posting. Just
a thought...

I think it was on 'Rubber Soul'? Don't know for sure.
Well, here it is, with the first bit tabbed:


Paperback Writer

by John Lennon & Paul McCartney

It took almost 30 years to get this song on a computer :-)
(Original written in 1966, I wrote this on 01.01.1995)
Yip, it's the best two-chord song I've ever heard...

This is the intro bit:

e----------------v-----------------v
B----------------v-----------------v
G-------0--------v-----------------v
D---0-3-----0-3--v---------0---3---v
A----------------v---3-------------v
E-3--------------v-3-----3---------v


And the complete lyrics & chords:



Paperback writer...

G7
Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look
It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
C
And I need a job so I want to be a paperback writer
G7
Paperback writer

G7
It's a dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
C
It's a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer
G7
Paperback writer

G7
It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two
I can make it longer if you like the style
C
I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer
G7
Paperback writer

G7
If you really like it you can have the rights
It could make a milion for you overnight
If you must return it you can send it here
C
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer
G7
Paperback writer

G7
Paperback writer...




And I'll send this to Nevada, too :-)
