D7 D7                         D7#9 D7#9  D7 D7
Let me tell you how it will be
D7 D7 D7#9 D7#9 D7 D7
There's one for you nineteen for me
C7 C7 G7#9 G7#9 D7 D7
'Cos I'm the taxman Yeah I'm the taxman

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cos I'm the taxman Yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a truck I'll tax the street
If you try to fix it I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk I'll tax your feet TAXMAN!

C C G7#9 G7#9 D D
'Cos I'm the taxman Yeah I'm the taxman


Don't ask me what I want it for (ah ah, Mr. Wilson)
If you don't want to pay some more (ah ah, Mr. Heath)
'Cos I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die (TAXMAN!)
Declare the pennies on your eyes (TAXMAN!)
'Cos I'm the taxman Yeah I'm the taxman

And you're working for no one but me
F F D7 D7

About this song

"Taxman" is a song written by George Harrison and released as the opening track on the Beatles' 1966 album Revolver. Its lyrics attack the high levels of progressive tax taken by the British Labour government of Harold Wilson. Paul's guitar solo utilises what Pollack describes as "fast triplets, exotic modal touches, and a melodic shape which traverses several octaves and ends with a breathtaking upward flourish". Everett considers that McCartney's solo is in the same Dorian mode adapted by Harrison in Love You To. Read more on
