Transcribed by T-rev

   D6              Em7
   Day after day, alone on a hill
   The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still

    Em              A                 D6                   Bm
But nobody wants to know him they can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer but...
                               by The Beatles
          Dm                        Bb
   ...The Fool on the Hill sees the sun going down
              C9                       Dm              Dm7    D
      And the eyes in his head see the world spinning 'round

   Well on the way, head in a cloud
   The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
But nobody ever hears him or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice but...

And nobody seems to like him, they can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings but...

And he never listens to them, he knows that they're the fools
They don't like him...
