The Beatles - Maxwells Silver Hammer Chords Lyrics

[Verse]

D                   B7
Joan was quizzical; studied pataphysical
Em
Science in the home.
A7
Late nights all alone with a test tube.
D           A 
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

D               B7
Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine,
Em
Calls her on the phone.
A7
"Can I take you out to the pictures,
D           A 
Jo, oa, oa, an?"

[Chorus]

E7
But as she's getting ready to go,
  A7
A knock comes on the door.

D
Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     E7
Came down upon her head.
A7
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     Em        A7      D
Made sure that she was dead.

[Verse]

D                    B7
Back in school again Maxwell plays the fool again.
Em
Teacher gets annoyed.
A7
Wishing to avoid an unpleasant
D          A
Sce, E, E, ene,

D                     B7       
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away,
Em
So he waits behind
A7
Writing fifty times "I must not be
D         A
So, o, o, o.."

[Chorus]

    E7
But when she turns her back on the boy,
   A7
He creeps up from behind.

D
Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     E7
Came down upon her head.
A7
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     Em        A7      D
Made sure that she was dead.

| D F#/C# | Bm D7/A | G | D |

[Verse]

D                B7
P. C. Thirty-one said, "We caught a dirty one."
Em
Maxwell stands alone
A7
Painting testimonial pictures.
D           A 
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

D                 B7
Rose and Valerie, screaming from the gallery
Em
Say he must go free
    A7
The judge does not agree and he tells them
D         A
So, o, o, o.

[Chorus]

E7
But as the words are leaving his lips,
A7
A noise comes from behind.

D
Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     E7
Came down upon his head.
A7
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Em             A7     D
Made sure that he was dead. (Wha-oh-a-oh-a-oh)
