BEATLES SING THIS IN  “E”

VERSE 1

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

CHORUS          
                         A                              E
Christ you know it ain’t easy, you know how hard it can be                        
                   B7                             E
The way things are going,   they’re gonna crucify me.                     

VERSE 2
E
Finally made the plane into Paris
Honeymooning down by the Seine
      E7
Peter brown called to say, you can make it ok 
You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain 

CHORUS
                         A                              E
Christ you know it ain’t easy, you know how hard it can be                        
                   B7                             E
The way things are going,   they’re gonna crucify me.                     


VERSE 3
E
Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
     E7
The newspapers said what you doing in bed
I said we're only trying to get us some peace 

CHORUS
                         A                              E
Christ you know it ain’t easy, you know how hard it can be                        
                   B7                             E
The way things are going,   they’re gonna crucify me.                     


BRIDGE
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..

B7
Think!

VERSE 4
E
Made a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cake in a bag
       E7
The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head
They look just like two gurus in drag”

CHORUS
                         A                              E
Christ you know it ain’t easy, you know how hard it can be                        
                   B7                             E
The way things are going,   they’re gonna crucify me.                     


VERSE 5
E
Caught the early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
     E7
The men from the press say "We wish you success
It's good to have the both of you back"

CHORUS
                         A                              E
Christ you know it ain’t easy, you know how hard it can be                        
                   B7                             E
The way things are going,   they’re gonna crucify me.                     
                   B7                             E
