----------------------------------------------------------- THE BEATLES - GETTING BETTER (Lennon & McCartney) From SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Released on June 1st 1967. ----------------------------------------------------------- Tabbed by:PJVillanueva It's getting better all the time I used to get mad at my school The teachers who taught me weren't cool You're holding me down, turning me round Filling me up with your rules. I've got to admit it's getting better A little better all the time I have to admit it's getting better It's getting better since you've been mine. Me used to be a angry young man Me hiding me head in the sand You gave me the word I finally heard I'm doing the best that I can. I've got to admit it's getting better I used to be cruel to my woman I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene And I'm doing the best that I can. I admit it's getting better A little better all the time Yes I admit it's getting better It's getting better since you've been mine 12/8 Csus4 e|3----- 3----- 3----- 3-----|3----- 3----- 3-----
