   C  E  E7  F    F  G    G  Am

Good tune, pretty funny. Please 
rate, comment, and enjoy!

Standard Tuning
Capo 5th

Note that in the C E F G pattern that E is occasionally played as E7
listen to the song for the correct strumming pattern, though the pattern
is pretty simple and shouldn't take much to figure out if you know the song!

Intro(x2): C E F G

C          E               F           G              C E F G
If there's someone you can live without, then do so.
C              E               F             G        C E F G   
And if there's someone you can just shove out; do so.

[ Tab from: ]
C       E          F     G
You can be my Yoko Ono
C       E             F      G
You can follow me wherever I go
C      E
Be my, be my, Be my,
F          G     
Be my Yoko Ono.
C        E            F             G                 C E F G
Isn't it beautiful to see two people so much in love?
C         E              F                G                       C E F G
Barenaked as two virgins hand in hand and hand and hand in glove.
C            E           F               G                      C E F G
Now that I'm far away it doesn't seem to me to be such a pain.
C           E              F               G                       C E F G
To have you hanging off my ankle like some kind of ball and chain.

(Go To Chorus)
F      G               C                    Am
Oh no, here we go, our life is just one big pun.
F      G          C            E7 (strum E7 once)   
Oh no, here we go as Yoko sings

C                  E         F           G                          C E F G   
I know that when I say this, I may be stepping on pins and needles;
C                E                F                
But I don't like all these people slagging her for 
G                      C E F G 
breaking up the Beatles.(Don't blame it on Yokey!)
C                 E              F              G                       C E F G
if I was John and you were Yoko, I would gladly give up musical genius,
C       E              F       G                  C E F G
just to have you as my very own, personal Venus.

(Hit It!) 

(Go To Chorus, and after playing through chorus keep singing the Be my, 
be my part while playing the same chords
on guitar and keeping the same tempo)
