Song: Paperback Writer

I prefer to play the opening like this:


 It sounds better than the open strings in the previous posting.  Just 
a thought...

I think it was on 'Rubber Soul'?  Don't know for sure.
Well, here it is, with the first bit tabbed:

Paperback Writer 

by John Lennon & Paul McCartney

It took almost 30 years to get this song on a computer :-)
(Original written in 1966, I wrote this on 01.01.1995)
Yip, it's the best two-chord song I've ever heard...

This is the intro bit:


And the complete lyrics & chords:


 Paperback writer...

 Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
 It took me years to write, will you take a look
 It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
 And I need a job so I want to be a paperback writer
 Paperback writer

 It's a dirty story of a dirty man
 And his clinging wife doesn't understand
 His son is working for the Daily Mail
 It's a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer
 Paperback writer

 It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
 I'll be writing more in a week or two
 I can make it longer if you like the style
 I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer
 Paperback writer
 If you really like it you can have the rights
 It could make a milion for you overnight
 If you must return it you can send it here
 But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer
 Paperback writer

 Paperback writer...

And I'll send this to Nevada, too :-)
