Subject: TAB: <Free as a Bird> by <The Beatles>

I got the album today and I had to post this because the only posting so far 
is CRD file, which I can never get to work. There is more to this song than 
you might think at first. Sorry, I don't know the lyrics yet.


Main Theme Chords:
                        A       F#m       Fmaj7    E
                        A       F#m       Dm        E
                        A       F#m       Dm        G
                        C       Am         Esus4    E
Modified Main Theme Chords:

                        G                    A
                        F                    D
                        G                    Esus4    E

Middle Eight Chords:
                        C       Am        Fm            G
                        C       Am        Fm            G
                        C       Am        Fm            G
Coda Chords:    
                        A       F#m       Fmaj7    E
                        A       F#m       Dm        E
                        A       F#m       Dm        G
                        A       F#m       Dm        G
                        A       F#m       Dm        G
                        A       F#m       Dm        G
                        A                                    

Opening        - Main Theme
Verse 1         - Main Theme
Verse 2         - Main Theme
Bridge 1        - Bridge
Verse 3         - Main Theme
Verse 4         - Modified Main Theme
Bridge 2        - Bridge 2      
Guitar Solo     - Middle Eight
Coda             - Coda

And that little thing at the end is kind of confusing. Basically, the A 
chord is going haywire over the A-E-F#-G bass line, but in the background 
you can here the ukulele in the background somehow resolving to a D major 
chord, with an appropriate A to D finish.
