[Verse 1]
     B               G#m7            C#m7        F#7
Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
         B                 G#m7           Bm
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
          G#m7                   Gmaj7
And all the people that come and go
          F#7sus4   F#7  F#7sus4 F#7
Stop and say hello

[Verse 2]
       B           G#m7          C#m7     F#7
On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
           B                 G#m7           Bm
The little children laugh at him behind his back
        G#m7                 Gmaj7
And the banker never wears a mac
       F#7sus7      F#7  E
In the pouring rain,     very strange
 
[Chorus]
      A             C#m             D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A               C#m            D
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies
           F#7
I sit, and meanwhile back in Penny...

[Verse 3]
B               G#m7            C#m7      F#7
Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
           B           G#m7            Bm
And in his pocket is a portrait of the queen
            G#m7                 Gmaj7
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
       F#7sus4    F#7      E
It's a clean machine
 
[Interlude]
 
[Chorus]
      A             C#m             D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A       C#m              D
Full of fish and finger pies
           F#7
In summer, meanwhile back behind the...

[Verse 4]
B              G#m7        C#m7       F#7
shelter in the middle of a roundabout
           B                G#m7            Bm
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
               G#m7                   Gmaj7
And though she feels as if she's in a play
       F#7sus4  F#7   F#7sus4  F#7
She is anyway

[Verse 5]
         B               G#m7           C#m7     F#7
In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
           B               G#m7          Bm
We see the banker sitting, waiting for a trend
             G#m7           Gmaj7
And then the fireman rushes in
         F#7sus4      F#7  E
From the pouring rain,     very strange

[Chorus]
      A             C#m             D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A               C#m            D
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies
           F#7
I sit, and meanwhile back...

[Chorus]
      B             D#m             E
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
B               D#m             E   
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies
       B
Penny Lane
