          September in the Rain – The Beatles
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

The Beatles
September in the Rain (1962)
(Harry Warren/Al Dubin)

From the Decca audition tapes
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beatles%27_Decca_audition)

A lot of barree. Tip for beginners: Leave out the key change in the last 
verse and play in G. I added a version 2 below
