A Day in the Life chords
The Beatles

G Bm Em Em7  C C6 C  C C6 C

G          Bm            Em  Em7
I read the news today oh boy,                  
C       Em            Am       Cmaj7  
about a lucky man who made the grade
G              Bm              Em  Em7
And though the news was rather sad,
C       F           Em
well, I just had to laugh;
C         F    Em  Cmaj7
I saw the photograph

G           Bm            Em  Em7  C         Em              Am         Cmaj7  
He blew his mind out in a car,     he didn't notice that the lights had changed
G          Bm               Em   Em7  C               F  
A crowd of people stood and stared,   they'd seen his face before
Em                        E7                       C
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

G       Bm             Em  Em7 C           Em            Am      Cmaj7  
I saw a film today oh, boy;    the English Army had just won the war
G          Bm             Em  Em7 C          F  
A crowd of people turned away,    but I just had to look;
Em     E7       C
having read the book....

C           Bm       G       Em  E
I'd love to turn.... you.... on....

E                                                  D
Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head
         E                  F#m7
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
E                 F#m7
and looking up, I noticed I was late
E                                                         D
Found my coat and grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds flat
         E                F#m7
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
    E                    F#m7
and somebody spoke and I went into a dream

C  G  D  A   C  G  D  A  ahhh....

E  D\C  D  A

G           Bm             Em  Em7 C             Em                  Am   Cmaj7  
I heard the news today oh, boy;    four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
G              Bm                Em  Em7 C           F          
And though the holes were rather small,  they had to count them all
Em                              E7                       C
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
            Bm      G      Em   E
I'd love to turn... you... on...

Thats really close I think. It helped me a lot. Id say that after the Em's in the verses that it goes to Em7 though. Also in the middle (McCartney section) there is a B chord at 'I noticed I was late), and the chords in the dream middle have an E in them so its CGDA E CGDA etc. i hope that helps.
