Hi Beatle fans! I recently had a request for this song from one of my students who had
to me a chord sheet from another tab site that was horribly incorrect. John and Paul used
lot of augmented chords in their early tunes, so I thought that I would share this song 
you all. I pulled the tune from a John Lennon demo of the song with just him and
guitar, so it's from the original source. I hope you enjoy and learn from it!

E                     C#m
If you ever leave me, I'll be sad and blue
Abm                         F#m              G+
Don't you ever leave me, I'm so in love with you

    E            Abm             C#m
The birds in the sky would be sad and lonely
        E         Abm      C#m
If they knew that I lost my one and only,
          A             B7     E   Abm  B7
They'd be sad if you're bad to me

    E             Abm          C#m
The leaves on the trees would be softly sighin’
        E              Abm            C#m
If they heard from the breeze that you left me crying,
          A            B7     E
They'd be sad don’t be bad to me

               A                          B7
But I know you won't leave me 'cause you told me so,
E                     C#7
I've no intention of letting you go,
A                       B7           F#m             G+
Just as long as you let me know, you won't be bad to me

       E            Abm         C#m
So the birds in the sky won't be sad and lonely
            E         Abm     C#m
'Cause they know that I got my one and only
           A               B7     Bm     C#7
They'll be glad you're not bad to me

           F#m             B7         E   Abm   F#m     B7
They'll be glad you're not bad to me
      E   Abm   F#m     B7
To me
      E   Abm   F#m     B7
To me

I think B or B7 chords are better than G+

No, this chord is correct... Listen the recording...

I think the G+ is actually a B+.  Doesn't sound like a G+ to me.  It doesn't sound like a Plus chord in the Key of D arrangement by Billy J either... but I certainly can be wrong.

Also, since this is in the Key of John's demo, he does a descending Bass thing in the Verse, which I think it:  E  G#m/D#  C#m.  Which is easy to play with Barre Chords, but I think John may be capoed-up so the Chords start in a D Configuration.

And I hate to be the Music Nazi here, but there is no Ab in the Key of E.  It's G#.
