“Help” (The Beatles cover)
A Shipwreck in the Sand (Bonus Track)

Popularized by The Beatles (1965)
Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney


Intro:
Bbm              G#
Help! I need somebody 
F#                Fm
Help! Not just anybody
Ebm
Help! You know I need someone,
G# (hold)
Help!


Verse 1:
G#                            Cm
  When I was younger, so much younger than today,
Fm                         C#m     F#  G#
  I never needed anybody's help in any way.
G#                                Cm
  But now those days are gone I'm not so self-assured,
Fm                                      C#     F#     G#
  Now I find I've changed my mind, I've opened up the door.


Chorus:
Bbm                                 Bbm-G#
Help me if you can I'm feeling down.
      F#                              F#-Fm
And I do appreciate you being 'round.
Ebm
Help me get my feet back on the ground.
          G# (hold)          G#
Won't you please please help me.


Verse 2:
G#                               Cm
  And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
Fm                          C#m    F#     G#
  My independence seemed to vanish in the haze.
G#                         Cm
  But every now and then I feel so insecure,
Fm                                 C#         F#     G#
  I know that I just need you like I've never done before.


[Repeat Chorus]
