The Beatles

From: Paul Zimmerman 


      Am9       Am6    Em              Am                     Em
She's not a girl   who misses much        Du du du du du du      Oh yeah

Dm
 She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
                    Am

Dm                                                    Am
man in the crowd with the multicolored mirrors on his hobnail boots
Dm                                                   Am
Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy working overtime
Dm                                                             Am
 A soap impression of his wife which he ate and donated to the national trust

	It would be best to not follow the leads note for note,
	because I'm probably wrong about the order in which they're
	played.  Make your own revisions.  Also, listen to the song
	to get the order of everything correct, and to know when to 
        repeat things.  I'm sorry that I don't know the ending, 
	but if somebody would send it to me, I would be very grateful.
