PENNY LANE  (1967) 

      B               Abm7            Dbm7        Gb7
Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
         B                 Abm            Bm7
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
          Abm7-5                 Gmaj7
And all the people that come and go
          Gb7sus4   Gb7  Gb7sus4 Gb7
Stop and say hello

       B           Abm7          Dbm7     Gb7
On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
           B                 Abm7           Bm7
The little children laugh at him behind his back
        Abm7-5               Gmaj7
And the banker never wears a mac
       Gb7sus7      Gb7  E
In the pouring rain,     very strange

CHORUS 1:
      A             A/C#            D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A               A/C#           D
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies
           Bbdim     Gb7
I sit, and meanwhile back in Penny...

B               Abm             Dbm7      Gb7
Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
           B           Abm             Bm7
And in his pocket is a portrait of the queen
            Abm7-5               G
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
       Gb            E
It's a clean machine

Instrumental:
|B    Abm    |Dbm7   Gb7  |B      Abm7        |Bm7      |
|Abm7-5      |Gmaj7       |Gb7sus4Gb7         |E        |

CHORUS 2:
      A             A/C#            D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A       A/C#             D
Full of fish and finger pies
           Gb7
In summer, meanwhile back behind the...

B              Abm7        Dbm7       Gb7
shelter in the middle of a roundabout
           B                Abm7            Bm7
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
               Abm7-5                 Gmaj7
And though she feels as if she's in a play
       Gb7sus4  G7   Gb7sus4  Gb7
She is anyway

         B               Abm7           Dbm7     Gb7
In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
           B               Abm           Bm7
We see the banker sitting, waiting for a trend
             Abm7-5         Gmaj7
And then the fireman rushes in
         Gb7sus4      Gb7  E
From the pouring rain,     very strange

CHORUS 1 (again):
      A             A/C#            D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A               A/C#           D
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies
           Gb7
I sit, and meanwhile back...

[Key change all up a whole tone – straight through, don’t stop]

Coda CHORUS:
      B             B/D#            E
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
B               B/D#            E   (2 bars)
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies
       B
Penny Lane

Note the original song (for the chorus) starts in the key
of “just slightly higher than” A, then last chorus modulates
to “just shy of” Bb.  Ask George Martin why. (He does know).
