VERSE 1:
          G      D   Em     G7
There are places I remember,
       C/G  Cm     G
All my life though some have changed.
        G    D       Em     G7
Some forever not for better,
          C/G  Cm  G
Some have gone and some remain.


BRIDGE 1:
          Em                C/G
All these places have their moments,
     F                    
With lovers and friends I still can recall.
         Em                A
Some are dead and some are living,
      Cm7       G              
In my life I've loved them all.

|A   |E   |


VERSE 2:
       G         D           Em     G7
But of all these friends and lovers,
         C/G Cm    G
There is no-one compares with you.
          G        D          Em      G7
And these memories lose their meaning,
       C        Cm      G
When I think of love as something new.


BRIDGE 2:
         Em                     C/G
Though I know I'll never lose affection,
    F                      G
For people and things that went before.
  Em                             A
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
   Cm7       G       
In my life I love you more.

NOTES:
1.  Lennon regarded In My Life particularly highly, citing it - along with Strawberry Fields Forever, 
I Am The Walrus and Help! - as among his best.  “…For In My Life, I had a complete set of lyrics after 
struggling with a journalistic vision of a trip from home to downtown on a bus naming every sight. … 
And it was, I think, my first real major piece of work. Up till then it had all been sort of glib and 
throwaway. And that was the first time I consciously put my literary part of myself into the lyric. 
Inspired by Kenneth Alsopf [sic], the British journalist, and Bob Dylan….” - John Lennon, All We Are Saying, 
David Sheff.  http://www.beatlesbible.com/songs/in-my-life/  
2.  “…The song was recorded on 18 October 1965, and was complete except for the instrumental bridge.  
At that time, Lennon had not decided what instrument to use, but he subsequently asked George Martin 
to play a piano solo, suggesting "something Baroque-sounding".  Martin wrote a Bach-influenced piece 
that he found he could not play at the song's tempo. On 22 October, the solo was recorded with the 
tape running at half speed, so when played back at normal pace the piano was twice as fast and an octave 
higher, solving the performance challenge and also giving the solo a unique timbre, reminiscent of a 
harpsichord. …”  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_My_Life
