Artist: The Beatles

Song: "Fixing A Hole”

Album: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

 

 

 

 

I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in

And stops my mind from wandering

Where will it go


I'm filling the cracks that ran through the door

And kept my mind from wandering

Where will it go


And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong

I'm right

Where I belong I'm right

Where I belong.


See the people standing there who disagree and never win

And wonder why they don't get in my door.


I'm painting my room in the colourful way

And when my mind is wandering

There I will go.


And it really doesn't matter if

I'm wrong I'm right

Where I belong I'm right

Where I belong.


Silly people run around they worry me

And never ask me why they don't get past my door.


I'm taking the time for a number of things

That weren't important yesterday

And I still go.


I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in

And stops my mind from wandering

Where it will go.


Tune your guitar a half step down and 

(Tune low E string to D# for the solo guitar)
