CODA: (Harmonium over)

NOTES:
1.  This is my personal interpretation of how I see and hear this song, as reproduced in 
‘The Beatles - We Can Work it Out’ video.  I had the sheet music for this as a teenager and 
found it so frustrating, that it wasn’t what I heard!  Hats off to (George) Harrison, as I 
think it’s as close as I can get it? 
2.  “I had the idea, the title, had a couple of verses and the basic idea for it, then I took it 
to John to finish it off and we wrote the middle together. Which is nice: 'Life is very short. 
There's no time for fussing and fighting, my friend.' Then it was George Harrison's idea to put 
the middle into waltz time, like a German waltz. That came on the session, it was one of the cases 
of the arrangement being done on the session.” - Paul McCartney, ’Many Years From Now’, Barry Miles

I like to play the coda: Dsus2, (D)2, Dsus4, D, Dsus4, D. Sounds similar to the harmonium. Good job!
