Picture yourself in a boat on a river - tangerine trees & marmalade skies.

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly-a girl w/ kaleidoscope eyes.
Ab                    Bb9              Cm/Eb               Ab
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green towering over your head.
Bb9                         F                         C
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes and she's gone.



CHORUS:
F    /G /A  Bb        C         F    /G /A  Bb        C
Lucy in the sky with diamonds.  Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
F    /G /A  Bb        C         C
Lucy in the sky with diamonds.  Ohhh


  

G          G/F       C/E         Cm/Eb
Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain -
      G/D           G/F        C/E         Cm/Eb   Eb-F/C
where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies.
G        G/F           C/E            Cm/Eb        G/D       G/F     C/E  C  /Bb
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers that grow so incredibly high.
Ab                Bb9               Cm/Eb                Ab
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore waiting to take you away.
Bb9                         F                              C
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds and you're gone.

Waiting to take  you away

Climb in the back with your head in the clouds

	   C
And you're gone.

(Chorus)

G           G/F       C/E        Cm/Eb
Picture yourself on a train in a station -
     G/D        G/F          C/E           Cm/Eb   Eb-F/C
with plasticine porters with looking glass ties.

Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile - the girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

(Chorus, repeat, ad lib, fade)
