Penny lane guitar chords

Lennon’s original lyrics for “In My Life” had included a reference to Penny Lane. Soon after the Beatles recorded “In My Life” in October 1965, McCartney mentioned to an interviewer that he wanted to write a song about Penny Lane. A year later, he was spurred to write the song once presented with Lennon’s “Strawberry Fields Forever”. McCartney also cited Dylan Thomas’s nostalgic poem “Fern Hill” as an inspiration for “Penny Lane”. Lennon co-wrote the lyrics with McCartney. He recalled in a 1970 interview: “The bank was there, and that was where the trams sheds were and people waiting and the inspector stood there, the fire engines were down there. It was reliving childhood. ”
