Because

Lennon/McCartney

Album: Abbey Road

Transcribed by Mike Chapman (chapman@power.psl.ee.vt.edu)

This version is pretty fun to play along with the vocal version
on Anthology 3! Try using your pinky for the notes marked with
a *. This version also sounds great on just an acoustic. I like
to use a stiff pick to get a sharper attack sound, but finger
picking is okay too. The song is almost entirely barre chords.

Chords:

C#m G#7sus? G# A A7 D F#

Because the world is round, it turns me on
Because the world is round, ahhh

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue, ahhh
