	LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS - The Beatles


Main riff goes like this:

	A           A-7        D           D/F
I---------------------------I---------------------------I
I-----------17------17------I----------17-----15p14-----I
I-------14--------------14--I------14---------------14--I
I---14----------17----------I--16----------15-----------I  
I---------------------------I---------------------------I
I---------------------------I---------------------------I

	These are just permutations of an A chord so you could play this down
on the second fret if you have an acoustic guitar. On electric, this riff
sounds really good when it sustains.

	Follow the pattern or play the chords for the verse:

  A         A-7       D         D/F
Picture yourself in a boat on a river 
       A       A-7        D        D/F --->  G
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
   A      A-7           D            D/F
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
  A             A-7      F#m ---> Dm ---> C
A girl with kaleidiscope eyes


PRECHORUS:

    Bb                      C                   F                  Bb
   Cellophane  flowers  of  yellow and green    towering over your head
                            (slow bend)
eI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
bI-------------------------------------------I----------------------------I
gI--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w---5^1/2--5^w-5^w-I-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w-5\3I

   C                          G                            D
   Look for the girl with the sun  in  her  eyes and she's gone

eI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
bI---------------------------------------------------------I--------------I
gI--5^w-5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w--5^w-5^w-5^w-5^w--5^w---5---4---I--2-----------I


CHORUS:

        G           C        D          G           C        D
	Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.  Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
        G           C        D          D ---> A
	Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.



	To make D/F chord:
    D/F

I-----0----I
I-----3----I
I-----2----I
I-----3----I
I-----x----I
I-----x----I


	^w  -  means whole bend
        ^1/2 - means half bend

------------------------------------------
cut here
------------------------------------------

Here is how I play it :  (not like the above)

|--------12-------12-----------12---------9-8-------|
|----10----------------9-----------9-----------9----|
|-9-----------12----------10-----------9------------|
|---------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------|

I think that's right.  It's off the top of my head,
no guitar in front of me. 

Good luck!

It's a really hard tab t understand. The part at the end where you said that the riff is off the top of your head is wrong and you don't have te short riff that comes after the main but is played all over the song

you got the beginging all messed up. it is way to high unless you have a cut out. try to transpose it on the first three strings.
