    Let It Be
    :John Lennon/Paul McCartney}
    Wh[G]en I find myself in t[D]imes of trouble,
    Mo[Em]ther Mary c[C]omes to me,
    Sp[G]eaking words of w[D]isdom, let it [C]be.[G]
    [G]And in my hour of da[D]rkness,
    She is st[Em]anding right in f[C]ront of me,
    Sp[G]eaking words of w[D]isdom, let it [C]be.[G]
         Let it [Em]be, let it [D]be, let it [C]be, let it [G]be.
       [G]Whisper words of wis[D]dom, let it [C]be.[G]
    And when the broken hearted people
    Living in the world agree,
    There will be no answer, let it be.
    But though there may be parting,
    There is still a chance that they will see,
    There will be an answer, let it be.
         Let it [Em]be, let it [D]be, let it [C]be, let it [G]be.
         Whisper words of wis[D]dom, let it [C]be.[G]
         Let it [Em]be, let it [D]be, let it [C]be, let it [G]be.
         Whisper words of wis[D]dom, let it [C]be.[G]
