(A)                                     em7

Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.

F#m7                 D              E     F#

Nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about.

DM7                  E A

Strawberry Fields forever.


E         G#m       E7       Bm7  C#7

Living is easy with eyes closed.

F#m     F#m/E            DM7

Misunderstanding all you see.

D            E7             A                    F#m

It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out.

D          E              D    A

It doesn't matter much to me.




No-one I think is in my tree.

I mean it must be high or low.

That is, you know you can't tune in but it's all right.

That is, I think it's not too bad.




Always know sometimes think it's me.

But you know I know when it's a dream.

I think a "No" will be a "Yes", but it's all wrong.

That is, I think I disagree.




GM7               D      Bm

Strawberry Fields forever.
