[Intro]
C5 D#5 C5 D#5
C5 D#5 G#5
 
[Verse 1]
C5                 D#5   C5          D#5
It was the fearful night of December 8th
C5               D#5           G#5
He was returning home from the studio late
C5                  D#5   C5                  D#5
He had perceptively known that it wouldn't be nice
C5                  D#5       G#5
Because in nineteen eighty he paid the price
 
[Chorus]
C5   D#5          C5   D#5
John Lennon died, John Lennon died,
C5   D#5    G#5
John Lennon died
(repeat 1x)

A#5 G5 D#5 (D) D#5
(repeat 1x)
 
[Verse 2]
C5               D#5    C5     D#5
With a Smith and Wesson thirty eight
C5            D#5         G#5
John Lennon's life was no longer a debate
C5             D#5            C5             D#5
He should have stayed at home he should have never cared
C5              D#5           G#5
And the man who took his life declared, he said:
 
[Chorus]
C5     D#5  C5      D#5
I just shot John Lennon
C5              D#5       G#5
He said: I just shot John Lennon
C5     D#5     C5        D#5
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
C5       D#5               G#5
It was a sad and sorry and sickening night
(repeat 2nd part 1x)
 
[Bridge]
C5        C5
Ah oh ah  Ah oh ah
C5              G#5
Ah oh ah  Oh ah ah
(repeat 1x)

He said: I just shot John Lennon
C5     D#5     C5        D#5
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
C5       D#5               G#5
It was a sad and sorry and sickening night
(repeat 2nd part 1x)
 
[Bridge]
C5        C5
Ah oh ah  Ah oh ah

                  It was the fearful night of December 8th. 
He was returning home from the studio late. 
He had perseptively known that it wouldn't be nice. 
Because in 1980, he paid the price. 

John Lennon died. [X6]

With a Smith & Wesson 38, 
John Lennon's life was no longer a debate. 
He should have stayed at home, 
He should have never cared, 
And the man who took his life declared, 

He said I just shot John Lennon. 
He said I just shot John Lennon. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening night. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening night. 

Ah, ah ah ah, ah... 

I just shot John Lennon. 
He said I just shot John Lennon. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening night. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight. 
What a sad and sorry and sickening night. 

Ah, ah ah ah, ah...
