Notes.
1.  The Coda or hidden song - 'Can You Take Me Back' is not an official song and 
was left off the White Album lyric sheet.  
2.  Some say the 'Can You Take Me Back' lyric 'Robert' (for Dr. Robert Freymann) 
is in fact 'brother', although it isn't phonetically.
3.  For chords for the Soprano or Tenor Ukulele, disregard the two lowest strings.
