  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva




I have tabbed these three part harmony to please a kind request 
and hoping that others would like too to wander a little with 
those fine voices.
The song has an unusual structure. It has just two parts that we 
can call A and B. (The coda is basically A with its second half 
repeated three times). 
A can be considered both as verses (with different words for each 
strophe) and also as chorus (it's the most evident hook and the 
placing at the beginning [a capella] and end of the song and the 
three part harmony reinforce this function) and B is the bridge 
(or middle eight) in which for the sake of accuracy I have tabbed 
separately John's leading melody (voice in the middle) and the two 
part harmony by Paul and George (high and low parts respectively). 
It could also be fun playing it as a three part harmony too, 
as shown lastly, though, of course, not so accurately.




A
He's a real nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.

A
Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

B
Nowhere Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.

A (Solo)

A
He's as blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?

B
Nowhere Man, don't worry,
Take your time, don't hurry,
Leave it all till somebody else
lends you a hand.

A
Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

B
Nowhere Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.

A 
He's a real nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.

About the artist behind Nowhere Man Tab:

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.
