The Beatles guitar chords for September in the rain

Guitar chords with lyrics

Tuning: Standard

The Beatles
September in the Rain (1962)
(Harry Warren/Al Dubin)

From the Decca audition tapes
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beatles%27_Decca_audition)

Transcribed in friendly G chord diagramGG. In order to match the original, either transpose
this tab up 1 semi-tone to Ab chord diagramAbAb/Ab chord diagramAbAb or use one of those cute ukulele capos
on the 1st fret.

I added a 2nd version for beginners which leaves out the key change.
