YELLOW SUBMARINE – Guitar Lesson

The 1968 Beatles' classic from the animated feature of the same name; was a great vehicle for Ringo's warm voice! Kids love to sing along and do the double clap during the chorus! Here's your Yellow Submarine guitar lesson.

  D         C      G
In the town where I was born
Em       Am        C       D7
Lived a man who sailed to sea
G       D      C       G
And he told us of his life
 Em     Am      C      D7
In the land of submarines

Verse 2:

 G      D        C     G
So we sailed up to the sun
Em        Am        C      D7
Till we found the sea of green
G        D       C         G
And we lived beneath the waves
Em       Am     C   D7
In our yellow submarine

Chorus 1:

 G                  D
We all live in a yellow submarine
                     G
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
                  D
We all live in a yellow submarine
                     G
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

Verse 3:

(G)      D          C     G
And our friends are all aboard
Em        Am        C      D7
Many more of them live next door
G        D      C      G    D
And the band begins to play 

G  G D7  G

Chorus 2:

 G                  D
We all live in a yellow submarine
                     G
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
                  D
We all live in a yellow submarine
                     G
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

Instrumental:

D7  C G  Em Am  C D7  G
D  C G  Em Am  C D7  G 

Verse 4:

(G)    D7     C      G
As we live a life of ease
Em    Am            C      D7
Every one of us has all we need
G      D        C      G
Sky of blue and sea of green
Em     Am     C      D7
In our yellow submarine

Chorus 3:

We all live in a yellow submarine
                     G
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

Hi.  Thanks.  I have a two-year old who's interested in all things music and dancing and instruments.  I've since dusted off my guitar to try and learn some children's tunes.  This really helps me look like a guitar hero.  Thanks.
