Obviously someone is planning to fill up the ESD with the entire Beatles catalogue. My contribution of today follows:

I think the song is originally in G - but I'm not sure if anybody besides sir Paul can sing it in that key - I can't, that's for sure. Hence - my interpretation in C. I really enjoy playing this one!

- sorry about the bridge - some find it akward to play in Eb... - but the transition between the bridge and the third verse is one of my all time favourite McCartney lines - so simple and brilliantly sweet - they don't make melodies like that anymore ;-)

[- let's see: Eb is the relative major of the parallel minor of C - maybe A major in the verse and C major in the bridge would be a good idea to make it simpler, but then you have bm and c#m in the verse... ...I'll be happy to transpose it if anybody's interested ]

some chords:
Eb: x68886
cm: x35543
fm: 133111

and here we go:

C dm em F C dm
Here, making each day of the year
em F bm E7
changing my life with a wave of her hand
bm E7 am dm7 dm G7
nobody can deny that there's something there

There, running my hands through her hair
Both of us thinking how good it can be
someone is speaking, but she doesn't know he's there

Bb (instead of the G7 at the end of the verse)

Bridge:

Eb cm
I want her everywhere
fm G7 cm*
And if she's beside me I know I need never care
fm G7
But to love her is to meet her

C dm etc.
Everywhere, knowing that love is to share
eachone believing that love never dies
wathcing her eyes and
hoping I'm allways there

(repeat bridge and verse 3 before coda)

Coda:
C dm em F
To be there and everywhere
C dm em F C(let ring)
Here, there and everywhere

* I add cm+5 cm6 cm7 to get the melody line

...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...

Fantastic addition Lars, this is one of the most melodic of all the Beatles songs. They sure don't write them like this anymore.
Your right about the Eb played open, I hate that chord unless I'm playing it up on the 6th fret where I find it pretty simple.

Is the hm in the following actually supposed to be a Fm?
em F hm E7
changing my life with a wave of her hand

Thanks for the great song Lars.

Rod. :wink:

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

oops - for some mysterious reason in Norway, the note B is named H (and Bb is named B) - corrected now! Thanks Rod!

Thanks Lars, a very, very nice addition to the database. I've always loved this song, but never tackled it because of the key. Many thanks for transposing this to a key that I can both sing and play!! Macca was at the top of his game when he wrote this and For No One on the same album!! Thanks again . . . Shug
