The Ballad Of John And Yoko

E
Standing in the dock at Southampton, Trying to get to Holland or France
E7
The Man in the Mac said, you gotta go back You know they didn't even give us a chance
A
Christ you know it ain't easy,
E
You know how hard it can be
B7
The way things are going,
E
They're gonna crucify me.
Finally made the plane into Paris Honeymooning down by the Seine Peter brown called to say, you can make it ok You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain Christ you know it ain't easy... Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton Talking in our beds for a week The newspapers said what you doing in bed I said we're only trying to get us some peace Christ you know it ain't easy...
A
Saving all your money for a rainy day Giving all your clothes to charity Last night the wife said oh boy when you're dead
B7
You don't take nothing with you but your soul..
B
Think!
Made a lightning trip to Vienna Eating chocolate cake in a bag The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head They look just like two gurus in drag" Christ you know it ain't easy... Caught the early plane back to London Fifty acorns tied in a sack The men from the press say "We wish you success It's good to have the both of you back" Christ you know it ain't easy... The way things are going They're gonna crucify me

Of every head he's had the pleasure to know

C
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies.
E7
I sit and meanwhile back
In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hour glass. And in his pocket is a portrait of the queen. He likes to keep his fire engine clean It's a clean machine. Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes. Full of fish and finger pies In summer meanwhile Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes. Wet beneath the blue suburban skies I sit and meanwhile Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray And though she feels as if she's in a play She is anyway. In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer We see the banker sitting, waiting for a trend 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
