I Feel Fine

Words & Music:

John Lennon & Paul McCartney


This is tabbed in the November 2009 issue of Guitar Edge.  This article also reveals that the famous "first intentional use of recorded feedback" first happened when Paul struck a muted A on the bass which resonated with an open A string on John's guitar.  The sympathetic vibrations set up the feedback.  Per that transcription, I've corrected the opening riff tab given here


INTRO:  A (feedback note)  D7  C7  G7



Baby's good to me, you know.

G7                                   D

She's happy as can be, you know, she said so.

D7               C              G7

I'm in love with her and I feel fine.


Baby says she's mine, you know.

She tells me all the time, you know, she said so.

I'm in love with her and I feel fine.


G      Bm        C               D

I'm so glad that she's my little girl.

G        Bm         C               D

She's so glad she's telling all the world.


That her baby buys her things, you know.

He buys her diamond rings, you know, she said so.

She's in love with me and I feel fine.


Main riff & intro:

   D7                                  C7
