  The Beatles--Paperback Writer
[Intro]

     N/C
 Pa - per - back  wri - ter,   pa - per - back wri - ter,


[Verse 1]

      G7
 Dear Sir or Mad-am will you read my book?
 G7
 It took me years to write  will you take a look?
 G7
 It's based on a nov-el by a man named Lear
 G7                                             C
 and I need a job so I want to be a pa-per-back writ - er
             G7
 pa - per - back writ - er.


[Verse 2]

 G7
 It's the dir-ty sto-ry of a dirt-y man and his cling-ing wife
 G7
 does-n't un-der-stand. His son is work - ing for the dai-ly Mail
 G7                                                  C
 It's a stead-y job but he wants to be a pa-per-back writ-er
               G7
 pa - per-back writ - er.


[Verse 3]

 G7
 It's a thousand pag-es give or take a few, I'll be writ-ing more
 G7
 in a week or two. I can make long-er if you like the style,
 G7                                                   C
 I can change it round and I want to be a pa-per-back writ - er
               G7
 pa - per-back writ - er.


[Verse 4]

 G7
 If you real - ly like it you can have the rights,
 G7
 it could make a mil - lion for you o-ver-night.
 G7
 If you must re - turn it you can send it  here,
 G7                                                C
 But I need a break and I want to be a pa-per-back writ - er
               G7
 pa - per-back writ - er.
 N/C


[Outro]

--------------------------------| Pa  -  per-back   writ  -  er  pa-per-back  writ  -  er
 G7-----Repeat and fade---------|
 Pa  -  per- back   writ  -  er

I'm pretty sure it's C/G instead of C, that's how I saw it in 'The Beatles Guitar'. Just a thought :)

G and C are barre chords (3rd fret and 8th fret). Alternate with G7 and C7 by simply taking pinky off.
