Watching Rainbows Chords

   
Well, I finally got around to it: the infamous "Watching Rainbows" at first i was afraid
to do this one becuase the vocals are very unclear but when i listened to it minus a few
mumbles i could figure out most of what John is singing. IT was recorded uring the Get
Back Sessions and George wasn't there that day so Paul plays lead. So the line up is
like this:
John Lennon- Electric Piano, Lead Vocals. Paul McCartney- Lead electric guitar. Ringo
Starr- drums. (?)- Tambourine.

The Beatles
Watching Rainbows
(Lennon/McCartney)

(INTRO):
