This is one of my favorite Beatles' songs and the other tabs aren't that fantastic.
It's not as hard as they'd lead you to believe. The song sounds better if you tune
you guitar down a half step. So E minor becomes E flat minor, but the chord is still
played the same way (for those of you who don't know what that means). However it still
sounds fine if you don't, you just may be singing a bit off key.


[Verse]
Em                              Am   G       C     G         B7
When I wake up early in the morning, lift my head, I'm still yawning
Em                          Am     G       C    G     C
When I'm in the middle of a dream, stay in bed, float upstream (float upstream)


[Pre-Chorus]
G                     Am                 Bm
Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am
Am       Cmaj7   (Guitar stops, bass solo) Cmaj7    Em
I'm only sleeping

[Verse]
Em                            Am   G       C     G         B7
Everybody seem to think I'm lazy, I don't mind I think they're crazy
Em                           Am     G       C    G     C
Running everywhere at such a speed, till they find, there's no need (there's no need)


[Pre-Chorus]
G                     Am                 Bm        
Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away, and after all
Am       Cmaj7   (Guitar stops, bass solo) Cmaj7    Em
I'm only sleeping


[Chorus]
D7                    E7                Am     Am7  Dm
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window,     taking my time
E7                         Am       G       C     G        B7
Lying there staring at the ceiling, waiting for a sleeping feeling


[Pre-Chorus]
G                     Am                 Bm        
Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away, and after all
Am       Cmaj7   (Guitar stops, bass solo)    Em
I'm only sleeping


[Chorus]
D7                    E7                Am     Am7  Dm
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window,     taking my time
E7                         Am       G       C     G        B7
Lying there staring at the ceiling, waiting for a sleeping feeling


[Verse]
Em                              Am   G       C     G         B7
When I wake up early in the morning, lift my head, I'm still yawning
Em                          Am     G       C    G     C
When I'm in the middle of a dream, stay in bed, float upstream (float upstream)


[Pre-Chorus]
G                     Am                 Bm
Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am
Am       Cmaj7   (Guitar stops, bass solo) Cmaj7    Em
I'm only sleeping

The chorda and tuning seem perfect to me all you need is the progression in order and maybe add the rest of the lyricsa and order it up nice and you have a perfect tab. **** for the right chords and good guidance
