B C♯m7 F♯7 B Bm7 G7M F♯7sus4 F♯7 EPenny Lane, is in my ears and in my eyes Full of fish-and-finger pies In summer, meanwhile back Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray And though she feels as if she's in a play, she is anyway In Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer We see the banker sitting, waiting for a trim And then the fireman rushes in from the pouring rain Very strange Penny Lane, is in my ears and in my eyes There beneath the blue suburban skies I sit, and meanwhile back Penny LBane, is in my B/D♯ears and in my eEyes TBhere beneath the B/D♯blue suburban skEies E/B Penny LaBne NOTE: "Penny Lane is a bus roundabout in Liverpool, and there is a barber's shop showing photographs of every head he's had the pleasure to know. Well, no, that's not true, they're just photographs of hairstyles, but all the people who come and go, stop and say hello. There is a bank on the corner, so we made up the part about the banker in his motor car. It's part fact, part nostalgia, for a place, which is a great place, with its blue suburban skies, as we remember it, and it's still there. We put in a joke or two, 'fish and finger pie'. The women would never dare say that, except to themselves. Most people wouldn't hear it, but 'finger pie' is just a nice little joke for the Liverpool lads who like a bit of a smut." (Paul McCartney)
