Honey Pie

Words & Music:

John Lennon & Paul McCartney


Em  A     C            Cm               G

She was a working girl north of England way.

Em        Am      C        Cm         G

Now she's hit the big-time in the U.S.A.

A7                             D7

And if she could only hear me, this is what I'd say:


G                            E                            A7   A7-5

Honey Pie, you are making me crazy.  I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

D7                        G   Eb   D11   D7

So, won't you please come home?

Oh, Honey Pie, my position is tragic.

Come and show me the magic of your Hollywood song.


G6/B         A/C#          G/D

You became a legend of the silver screen.

G7          C                      E7                   Am

And now the thought of meeting you makes me weak in the knee.

D7    C     D7

Tee!  Tee!  Tee!


Oh, Honey Pie, you are driving me frantic.

Sail across the Atlantic to be where you belong.

G     Eb        D7      G

Honey Pie, come back to me.




Will the wind that blew her boat across the sea,

Kindly send her sailing back to me? Tee!  Tee!  Tee!


Now, Honey Pie, you are making me crazy.

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.  So, won't you please come home?


G                  Eb7       D11

Come, come back to me, Honey Pie.

D7     G   Eb7       A7    A7-5

Ah-ha-ha!  Mmmm----------------


D7   A7   Am7   G   Am7   G   Eb7   D7   G
