Artist: The Beatles
Words & Music By: Lennon/ McCartney

[Verse 1]
         Cm        G7            Cm     Cm7
Is there anybody going to listen to my story
Fm                             Eb    G7
All about the girl who came to stay?
          Cm               G7              Cm         Cm7
She's the kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry
Fm                              Cm
Still you don't regret a single day...
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
[Verse 2]
       Cm                G7                  Cm      Cm7
When I think of all the times I've tried so hard to leave her
Fm                               Eb  G7
She will turn to me and start to cry
        Cm             G7            Cm   Cm7
And she promises the Earth to me and I believe her
Fm                               Cm
After all this time I don't know why...
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
Fm                                  C
She's the kind of girl who puts you down
                                    Fm   C
When friends are there, you feel a fool
When you say she's looking good
     C                                 Fm         Ab
She acts as if it's understood, she's cool, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
[Verse 3]
        Cm                G7                    Cm       Cm7
Was she told when she was young that pain would lead to pleasure?
Fm                               Eb  G7
Did she understand it when they said
       Cm                 G7               Cm     Cm7
That a man must break his back to earn his day of leisure,
Fm                                   Cm
Will she still believe it when he's dead?...
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
   Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Oh girl...
Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
Eb   Gm  Fm  Bb7
