The Beatles - The Ballad of John and Yoko: chords

E
Standing in the dock at Southampton,
trying to get to Holland or France.
    E7
The man in the mac said, "you've got to go back,"
You know they didn't even give us a chance.

Chorus:
                          A
Christ! You know it ain't easy
                          E
You know how hard it can be.
                    B7
The way things are going,
                          E
They're going to crucify me.

Fin'lly made the plane into Paris,
honeymooning down by the Seine.
Peter Brown called to say,
"You can make it OK,
you can get married in Gibraltar near Spain."

Chorus

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton,
talking in our beds for a week.
The newspapers said, say what're you doing in bed,
I said we're only trying to get us some peace.

Chorus

 A
Saving up your money for a rainy day,
Giving all your clothes to charity.
Last night the wife said,
"Oh boy, when you're dead
     B7
you don't take nothing with you but your soul."

Think!

Made a lightning trip to Vienna,
Eating choc'late cake in a bag.
The newspapers said,
"She's gone to his head,
they look just like two Gurus in a drag."

Chorus

Caught the early plane back to London,
fifty acorns tied in a sack.
The men from the press said "We wish you success,
it's good to have the both of you back."
