    Some authors have commented that THE WORD has a four bar 
    middle. It doesn't sound as a middle to me, but a short
    verse, with a clear expositive quality to it. The lyrics
    all but confirm that idea. The song has a twelve bar minor 
    structure, with long choruses with slight lyric variations 
    and short verses, interlude and coda. Paul is playing from 
    the beginning a D major chord in the studio Steinway while
    John's D7#9 guitar chord contains the minor third, #9 in 
    John's chord (only one and a half steps, not two steps up
    the tonic, as his piano D chord). It sounds bizarre to say 
    the least, but the fact is that they kept it going through 
    the whole number: 
       

                D       Dm      D       Dm
              e|------- ------- 5------ 5------|
              B|---------------(7)-----(6)-----|
              G|2-------2-------7-------7------|
              D(4)-----(3)---------------------|
              A|5-------5----------------------|
              E|-------------------------------|
                   D major and minor triads

            
    Sure George Martin had an opinion on this issue. Maybe he 
    thought it was heavy enough to let ambiguity play a rol in 
    the song too. John also uses the minor third in his lead 
    vocal, backed by Paul who sings the fifth, which reinforces 
    the idea that it is a minor key:
  

  e|------- ------- ------- -------|5------ ------- Paul--- -------|
  B|------------------------6---8--(6)--------------John-----------|
  G|------------------------7---9--|-------------------------------|
  D|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
  A|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
  E|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
                            Say the word ....


    The two part harmony changes to three part, although a fourth
    voice can be heard while singing "sunshine" (maybe an end of
    the double tracked Lennon lead) when singing the syncopated:


  e|------- ------- ------- -------|------- ------- ------- -------|

  D|-------------------------------|----------------------------9--|
  A|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|

                                                                It's

  e|7------ ----5-- ------- ----5--|5------ ----3-- ------- Paul---|

  G|7-----------6---------------5--|5-----------4-----------John---|
  D|----------------------------7--(5-----------5)-----------------|
  A|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
  E|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
    so         fine             It's 
                                    sunshine

   
    It sounds really good (John's chromatic descending line is 
    just fine). John's solo lines are brief, but very confident. 
    His doubling vocal track sounds like an echo to the right.
    The "I mean to show everybody the light" line persuasively
    leads to a climactic vocal harmony that is topped by a doubled 
    falsetto (01:38), that adds a dramatic effect and gives way to 
    the interlude. George Martin plays harmonium, giving a wink at 
    the major/minor song key, using D, D5, D, Dsus4 and Dm to close 
    it and lead to the coda (02:10-02:14). The falsetto harmony 
    reappears to say goodbye.
    Paul's bass part is nothing less than great and the same can 
    be said of Ringo's drumming, which is extremely intuitive, with 
    open hi-hat fours on the verses, some first class fills and 
    bass drum work, and always syncronized with the bass. The drums 
    sound may be considered a great achievement for that time and 
    place. (Paul and George play also maracas). George's guitar, 
    probably his Gretsch Tennessian, has a deep, clear tone and was 
    doubled in the verses. As a whole, a great song with a "message" 
    and a paradox on Macca's account, very telling on future things 
    to come. 




       
    Say the word and you'll be free
    Say the word and be like me
    Say the word I'm thinking of
    Have you heard? The word is love
    It's so fine, it's sunshine
    It's the word, Love.
  
    In the beginning I misunderstood,
    But now I got it, the word is good.

    Spread the word and you'll be free
    Spread the word and be like me
    Spread the word I'm thinking of
    Have you heard? The word is love
    It's so fine, it's sunshine
    It's the word, Love.

    Everywhere I go I hear it said
    In the good and the bad books that I have read.

    Say the word and you'll be free
    Say the word and be like me
    Say the word I'm thinking of
    Have you heard? The word is love
    It's so fine, it's sunshine
    It's the word, Love.

    Now that I know that for you must be right
    I mean to show everybody the light.
                                         
    Give the word a chance to say
    That the word is just the way
    It's the word I'm thinking of
    And the only word is love
    It's so fine, It's sunshine
    It's the word, love

    Say the word, love 
    Say the word, love 
    Say the word, love 
    Say the word, love.

About the artist behind The Word 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.
