The Guitar chords for many of the beatles song are very simple,
especially on the early recordings and very late recordings.

A lot of these songs follow a first, fifth and seventh chord progression.
Just pick the key you want and play away.

e.g.

key of D = D G A
key of A = A D E
key of C = C F G


Early songs were very popular in this style as it follows the Fiftys era
(these chords were used a lot).

Late songs were to John's quick songwriting to make up from Pauls
talented and thoughtful planning of the songs he wrote. John just picked
a few interesting lyrics to follow these chords (as seen on the LET IT BE
album).
e.g. Get Back(john) as opposed to Let it be(paul)

If you want more chords to some of the harder beatle songs please E-Mail

BEATLES RULE!!!!!

You mean a first, fourth, fifth progression, to fit your examples --
commonly referred to as the IV-V-I progression.

Paul wrote Get Back.
