Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
John Lennon & Paul McCartney

The Beatles
Rubber Soul
I bought my first Beatles album a couple months ago,
and this song seemed interesting.  I tried it out the
other day and couldn't get anywhere, but it really came
together quickly (~12 minutes) today.  Hope you enjoy
it!  I even have a sitar tab now, courtesy of Zach.

Capo 2nd This is the intro and the figure behind the verses. It is basically a combination of fingerpicking and strumming. It may take a while to get, but it is really fun once you play it.

The verses all have the RHYTHM FIGURE behind them. During the chorus, just strum the chords shown. I once had a girl or should I say she once had me She showed me her room isn't it good Norwegian wood
CHORUS Dm G She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere Dm G A So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair
I sat on a rug biding my time drinking her wine We talked until two and then she said "it's time for bed"
CHORUS She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath
And when I awoke I was alone this bird had flown So I lit a fire isn't it good Norwegian wood
The ending is just a D: D C D/A + + + + + + + + + e:-----2-2-2-2-|-------------|-2-----------| B:-3---3-3-3-3-|-------------|-3-----------| G:-2---2-2-2-2-|-----0-------|-2-----------| D:-0---0-0-0-0-|-2---2---0---|-0-----------| A:-------------|-3-------2---|-0-----------| E:-------------|-------------|-------------|
