Yellow Submarine

The Beatles


Guitar tuned down ½ step in original recording.

Chords in parentheses are played during the 4th beat of the previous chord's measure.

 

           D             (C)        G

In the town where I was born

(Em)      Am         (C)       D

Lived a man who sailed to sea

(G)       D      (C)     G

And he told us of his life

(Em)    Am      (C)     D

  In the land of submarines

 

(G)       D        (C)     G

So we sailed up to the sun

(Em)     Am      (C)      D

Till we found the sea of green

(G)       D        (C)             G

And we lived beneath the waves

(Em)    Am   (C)      D

In our yellow submarine

 

Chorus:

  G                   D

We all live in a yellow submarine

   D                        G

Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

G                      D

We all live in a yellow submarine

   D                        G

Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

 

              D             (C)     G

And our friends are all on board

(Em)  Am             (C)           D

Many more of them live next door

(G)         D       (C)        G     (Em)     Am      (C)      D

And the band begins to play

 

Chorus

 

(G)     D    (C)      G

As we live a life of ease

(Em)   Am              (C)       D

   Everyone of us has all we need

(G)       D        (C)        G

Sky of blue and sea of green

(Em)      Am    (C)    D

   In our yellow submarine

 

Chorus x2

 

End on G
