	LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS - The Beatles


Main riff goes like this:

	A           A-7        D           D/F
I---------------------------I---------------------------I
I-----------17------17------I----------17-----15p14-----I
I-------14--------------14--I------14---------------14--I
I---14----------17----------I--16----------15-----------I  
I---------------------------I---------------------------I
I---------------------------I---------------------------I

	These are just permutations of an A chord so you could play this down
on the second fret if you have an acoustic guitar. On electric, this riff
sounds really good when it sustains.

	Follow the pattern or play the chords for the verse:

  A         A-7       D         D/F
Picture yourself in a boat on a river 
       A       A-7        D        D/F --->  G
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
   A      A-7           D            D/F
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
  A             A-7      F#m ---> Dm ---> C
A girl with kaleidiscope eyes


PRECHORUS:

    Bb                      C                   F                  Bb
   Cellophane  flowers  of  yellow and green    towering over your head
                            (slow bend)
eI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
bI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
gI--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w---5^1/2--5^w-5^w-I-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5\3I

   C                          G                            D
   Look for the girl with the sun  in  her  eyes and she's gone

eI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
bI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
gI--5^w-5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w--5^w---5---4---I--2-----------I


CHORUS:

        G           C        D          G           C        D
	Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.  Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
        G           C        D          D ---> A
	Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.
