Im Only Sleeping Chords (ver 3) - Beatles

Im Only Sleeping Chords
This is one of my favorite Beatles' songs and the other tabs aren't that fantastic.
It's not as hard as they'd lead you to believe. The song sounds better if you tune
you guitar down a half step. So E minor becomes E flat minor, but the chord is still
played the same way (for those of you who don't know what that means). However it still
sounds fine if you don't, you just may be singing a bit off key.

Em                              Am   G       C     G         B7
When I wake up early in the morning, lift my head, I'm still yawning

Em                          Am     G       C    G     C
When I'm in the middle of a dream, stay in bed, float upstream (float upstream)

G                     Am                 Bm
Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am

Am       Cmaj7   (Guitar stops, bass solo) Cmaj7    Em
I'm only sleeping

D7                    E7                Am     Am7  Dm
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window,     taking my time

E7                         Am       G       C     G        B7
Lying there staring at the ceiling, waiting for a sleeping feeling

Additional Lyrics:

Everybody seem to think I'm lazy, I don't mind I think they're crazy
Running everywhere at such a speed, till they find, there's no need (there's no need)
Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away, and after all
I'm only sleeping

About the artist behind Im Only Sleeping Chords:

The Beatles were a pop and rock group from Liverpool, England formed in 1960. Primarily consisting of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals), and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals) throughout their career, The Beatles are recognised for leading the mid-1960s musical "British Invasion" into the United States. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1950s rock and roll and homegrown skiffle, the group explored genres ranging from Tin Pan Alley to psychedelic rock. Their clothes, styles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. After the band broke up in 1970, all four members embarked on solo careers.

The Beatles are one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. The Beatles are the best-selling musical group in history. In the United Kingdom, The Beatles released more than 40 different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one, earning more number one albums (15) than any other group in UK chart history. This commercial success was repeated in many other countries; their record company, EMI, estimated that by 1985 they had sold over one billion records worldwide.[1] According to the Recording Industry Association of America, The Beatles have sold more albums in the United States than any other band.[2] In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Beatles number one on its list of 100 Greatest Rock & Roll Artists of All Time. According to that same magazine, The Beatles' innovative music and cultural impact helped define the 1960s, and their influence on pop culture is still evident today.
