B                     Abm7           C#m7       F#
Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
         B                 Abm7             B#m7
Of every head he's had the pleasure to have known
            Abm7        G
And all the people that come and go
         F#sus4    F#    F#sus4   F#
Stop and say hello

B                  Abm7          C#m7       F#
On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
           B                 Abm7           B#m7
The little children laugh at him behind his back
        Abm7                 G
And the banker never wears a mac
In the pouring rain...
Very strange


A                   A/C#           D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A                 A/C#          D
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back


B                        Abm7            C#m7       F#
In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
           B           Abm7            B#m7
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen.
            Abm7                 G
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
       F#sus4    F#    F#sus4   F#
It's a clean machine

My Trumpet Solo Adaptation for Guitar



*Those notes sound cool if produced using a half step bend


A                   A/C#           D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A       A/C#            D
Four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back


B                         Abm7        C#m7       F#
Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
         B                Abm7           B#m7
A pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
               Abm7		      G
And though she feels as if she's in a play
       F#sus4    F#    F#sus4   F#
She is anyway

B                     Abm7           C#m7       F#
Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
           B              Abm7          B#m7
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
         Abm7           G
Then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain...
Very strange


A                   A/C#           D
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A                 A/C#          D
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back

Final Chorus 2 semitones up. Use B* = x 2 4 4 4 2 which is very similar to B/D# = 
x 6 4 4 4 x so that when you change chords no voices are inverted only the bass 
note changes

B*                   B/D#           E
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
B*                 B/D#          E
There beneath the blue suburban skies...
Penny Lane.

About the artist behind Penny Lane 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.
