We Can Work It Out

Words & Music:

John Lennon & Paul McCartney


D             Dsus4 D

Try to see it my--- way.

D            Dsus4           C(add 2)        D

Do I have to keep on talking 'til I can't go on?

D                Dsus4  D

While you see it your-- way,

D               Dsus4            C(add 2)          D

Run the risk of knowing that our love will soon be gone.



G              D     G              A

We can work it out.  We can work it out.


Think of what you're saying.

You can get it wrong and still you think that it's alright.

Think of what I'm saying.

We can work it out and get it straight or say goodnight.





Bm      Bm/A G         F#7        F#7sus4  F#

Life is very short, and there's no time

F#              Bm           Bm/A  Bm/G  Bm/F#

For fussing and fighting, my friend.

I have always thought that it's a crime.

So, I will ask you once again.


Try to see it my  way.

Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.

While you see it your way,

There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long.






CHORUS: D  G5  D(add 2)  D
