Ob-la-di Ob-la-da by The Beatles
In Chords

I'm pretty damn sure these are correct. It sounds just like this. If you don't have a
capo there is another version on this website that also sounds pretty good that doesn't
require a capo.

Here's what you need to know:

A: X02220
E: 022100
E7: 022130
D: XX0232
F#m7: 242222
A7: X02020
Asus2: X02200
A/E: 002220

Play this with a capo on the first fret.

Intro: |A   |A   |A   |A   ||
