Ob-la-di Ob-la-da (By BEATLES)
 
                             Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da
                             (Lennon/McCartney)
                                 The Beatles
                           The White Album (1968)
                 


This song is in Bb, but I recommend playing it with a capo on the 3rd 
fret and play in G. If you do this, Bb=G F=D Eb=C  Cm=Bm  Gm=Em  


  F

  Bb                          F
Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace,
                          Bb
Molly is the singer in a band.
                             Eb
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face,
           Bb               F                Bb
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand:

                              Cm   Gm
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'  
Bb              F       Bb
La-la how the life goes on.
                              Cm   Gm  
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'
Bb             F        Bb
La-la how the life goes on


  Bb                            F
Desmond takes a trolly to the jewler's store,
                            Bb
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
                               Eb
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
           Bb              F             Bb
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing:

                              Cm   Gm
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'  
Bb             F        Bb
La-la how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home
 Eb                                             Bb                F
With a couple of kids running in the yard, of Desmond and Molly Jones


 Bb                       F
Happy ever after in the marketplace,
                                  Bb
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
                                  Eb
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
            Bb                F                 Bb
And in the evening she still sings it with the band.


                                   Cm   Gm
Yes! Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'

Eb                                              Bb                F
With a couple of kids running in the yard, of Desmond and Molly Jones


      Bb                        F

             Bb              F              Bb
