  THE BEATLES - JULIA (Lennon/McCartney) From THE WHITE ALBUM.
                Released on 22nd November 1968.

--------------------------------------------------------------

  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva

 
Half of what I say is meaningless
But I say it just to reach you, Julia.

Julia, Julia, oceanchild, calls me
So I sing this song of love, Julia
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing this song of love, Julia.

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering
In the sun

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.

When I cannot speak my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia.

Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.

Hmmmmmmmmmhmmmhmmmmmm...............calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia.


Use a capo on the second fret.

Great tab, but I'm pretty sure the A chord listed above the "ocean child" part is actually a Dm7.

+1 reply
zteini 10 Jan 15, 2007 06:44 AM

Nope, it's Definately an A, cause Dm7 isn't in that chord proggression at all, try strumming it, it will sound awfull.

GREAT TAB!
