ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC: THE BEATLES (Chuck Berry) 4/4 - 168

None of the lyrics for this version by The Beatles that are going around
on the internet, were totally correct!
I have tried to reproduce, as precise as possible, the words John Lennon
is singing, but sometimes it's just a guessing game...

[Verse 2]

N.C.                     |E7              |
I TOOK MY LOVED ONE OVER 'CROSS THE TRACKS,

./.                         |A7         |
   AND SHE CAN GET HER MAN A WAILING SAX.

   THE GEORGIA FOLKS THEY HAD A JAMBOREE.

./.                                |D7         |
   THEY'RE DRINKIN' HOMEBREW FROM A WOODEN CUP,

./.                             |E7          |E7
   THE FOLKS ARE DANCING AND ARE ALL SHOOK UP.


[Chorus 4]

N.C.                    |A7           |./.    |
AND STARTED PLAYIN' THAT ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC,

[Verse 4]

N.C.                          |E7    |
DON'T GET TO HEAR THEM PLAY A TANGO,

./.                         |A7    |
   AND IN THE MOOD TO TAKE A MAMBO.

./.                        |D7    |
   IT'S WAY TOO EARLY FOR A CONGO,
                                  /
./.                      |E7     |E7

confirmed, you can see John play it this way at the Budokan concert.

The Beatles Complete Scores book suggests

E|--0--
B|--1--
G|--3--
D|--2--
A|--2--
E|--0--


This is better in my opinion because it's thicker.
