Penny Lane
(Lennon/McCartney)

The verses use a descending bass line from C to F/G that is a prominent part of this song.

C C/B C/A C/G F G
Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs

C C/B C/A C/G Cm
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know

Cm/A Ab Gsus G
And all the people that come and go, stop and say hello.

(as above)
On the corner is a banker with a motor car
The little children laugh at him behind his back

Cm/A Ab
And the banker never wears a mac

Gsus F
In the pouring rain, very strange

Bb Bb/D Eb
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes

Bb Bb/D Eb G
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies, I sit and meanwhile back

In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen
He likes to keep his fire engine clean, it's a clean machine
(trumpet solo)

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
Full of fish and finger pies in summer, meanwhile back

In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
And then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain, very strange

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies, I sit and meanwhile back

C C/E F
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes

C C/E F C
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies of Penny Lane
