Taxman Tab

Here's Taxman (probably a re-post). I don't have Nowhere Man, but it was tabbed 
out in the recent Guitar mag with John Lennon on the cover. As for If I Needed 
Someone, I also don't have this tab readily available, but a hint is to learn it 
in the key of D using the usual "baby" D chord (XX0232), then capo up to the 
seventh fret.
