Desmond takes a trolley to the jewelry store...
Buys a twenty carat golden ring...
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door...
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing...

(Same as chorus 1)
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on.

   A/E                       E
Of Desmond and Molly Jones... (Ha ha ha ha ha)

(same as verse 1)

Happy ever after in the market place...
Desmond lets the children lend a hand...
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face...
And in the evening she still sings it with the band...

(same as chorus 1)
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home,
With a couple of kids running in the yard,
Of Desmond and Molly Jones...

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on...

f#m7 - not fm#7. Also play the 1st string, 5th fret (a) with pinky.

after 'home sweet home' use 'f' shape A chord (5th fret)- walk melodic notes down : a, g, f#, e.
