Verse:

B                     G#m7           C#m7       F#
Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
         B                 G#m7             B#m7
Of every head he's had the pleasure to have known
            G#m7        G
And all the people that come and go
         F#sus4    F#    F#sus4   F#
Stop and say hello

B                  G#m7          C#m7       F#
On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
           B                 G#m7           B#m7
The little children laugh at him behind his back
        G#m7                 G
And the banker never wears a mac
       F#
In the pouring rain...
E
Very strange

Chorus:

A                   A/C#           D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A                 A/C#          D
There beneath the blue suburban skies
		F#
I sit, and meanwhile back

Verse:

B                        G#m7            C#m7       F#
In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
           B           G#m7            B#m7
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen.
            G#m7                 G
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
       F#sus4    F#    F#sus4   F#
It's a clean machine

*Those notes sound cool if produced using a half step bend

Chorus

A                   A/C#           D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A       A/C#            D
Four of fish and finger pies
           F#
In summer, meanwhile back

Verse:

B                         G#m7        C#m7       F#
Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
         B                G#m7           B#m7
A pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
               G#m7		      G
And though she feels as if she's in a play
       F#sus4    F#    F#sus4   F#
She is anyway

B                     G#m7           C#m7       F#
Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
           B              G#m7          B#m7
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
         G#m7           G
Then the fireman rushes in
         F#
From the pouring rain...
E
Very strange

Chorus:

A                   A/C#           D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A                 A/C#          D
There beneath the blue suburban skies
		F#
I sit, and meanwhile back

Final Chorus 2 semitones up. Use B* = x 2 4 4 4 2 which is very similar to B/D# = 
x 6 4 4 4 x so that when you change chords no voices are inverted only the bass 
note changes

B*                   B/D#           E
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
B*                 B/D#          E
There beneath the blue suburban skies...
	B
Penny Lane.
