Hard Day's Night


by The Beatles (Lennon - McCartney)
Galileo's head was on the block
The crime was looking up the truth
And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
I try to trace them to my youth

D - - - / A - - - / G - - - / A - - - /  x4   /  x4   / Bm - - - / A - - - / G - - - / A - - - //

Then you had to bring reincarnation
Over a couple of beers the other night
Now I'm serving time for mistakes made 
By another in another lifetime

 C:	How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I Call on the resting soul of Galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

D - - - / A - - - / G - - - / A - - - /  x4   / 
Bm - - - / F#m - - - / E - - - /    / G - - - / A - - - // ( D - - - / A - - - / G - - - / A - - - //)

Then I think about my fear motion
Which I could never explain
Some other fool across the ocean years ago
Must have crashed his little airplane

 C:	How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I Call on the resting soul of Galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

 B:	I'm not making a joke
You know me I take everything so seriously
If we wait for the time till all souls to get it right
Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
In my lifetime I'm still not right

Bm - - - /    / Bm#5 - - - /    / Bm6 - - - /    / Bm#5 - - - /    / Bm - - - /    / 
Bm#5 - - - /    / A - - - / A/G - - - /  X2   / D - - - / A - - - / G - - - / A - - - //
(Solo over chorus)
I offer thanks to those before me
That's all I've got to say
Maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
Now I've got to pay

But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
To let the next life off the hook
Or she'll say look what I had to overcome from my last life
I think I'll write a book

 C:	How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach the highest light
Except for Galileo
King of night vision, king of insight
 T:	How long, how long , how long...
D - - - / A - - - / G - - - / A - - - // (3x)
