The Beatles - Maxwell's Silver Hammer: chords

D                    B7
Joan was quizzical, studied pataphysical
Em
Science in the home
A7
Late nights all alone with a test tube
D         A
Ohh-oh-oh-oh...
D              B7
Maxwell Edison majoring in medicine
Em
Calls her on the phone
A7
"Can I take you out to the pictures
D         A
Joa-oa-oa-oan?"
E7
But as she's getting ready to go
    A7
A knock comes on the door...

Chorus:
 D
Bang, bang, Maxwell's silver hammer
      E7
Came down upon her head
  A7
Clang, clang, Maxwell's silver hammer
      Em        A7      D  A
Made sure that she was dead

Back in school again Maxwell plays the fool again
Teacher gets annoyed
Wishing to avoid an unpleasant sce-e-e-ene
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away
So he waits behind
Writing 50 times "I must not be so-o-o-oo..."
But when she turns her back on the boy
He creeps up from behind

Chorus

P.C. Thirty-One said "we caught a dirty one"
Maxwell stands alone
Painting testimonial pictures ohh-oh-oh-oh
Rose and Valerie screaming from the gallery
Say he must go free (Maxwell must go free)
The judge does not agree and he tells them so-o-o-oo
But as the words are leaving his lips
A noise comes from behind
