YELLOW SUBMARINE
          Lennon and McCartney
          arr. by Noam Mohr (mohr@student.physics.upenn.edu)

I made this version of Yellow Submarine from the way the
piano version sounded in The Complete Beatles, I have no
idea how similar it is to the original version.  But it
works for me!

All the notes and chords that fall on the off beat should   
have a dotted rhythm, i.e. instead of two eighth notes play 
a dotted eighth note and a sixteenth note.  If you've ever  
heard the song this rhythm should be obvious.  Make sure you
look for the ^ marks to show the beats, don't go by the
spacing.

I haven't been able to come up with a good rhythm for the
chorus, so I encourage you to be creative rather than
following my boring strum pattern.

WORDS:

  INTRO VERSE:

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed the sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines

  VERSE 1:
     
So we sailed up to the sun
Till we found the sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine

  CHORUS:
     
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

  VERSE 2:

And our friends are all on board
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play...
     
  CHORUS

  VERSE 3:

As we live a life of ease
Everyone of us has all we need
Sky of blue and sea of green
In our yellow submarine

  CHORUS (repeat and fade)
