I Saw Her Standing There Guitar Chord Chart by The Beatles

This is my Saw Her Standing There guitar chord chart by The Beatles. You may or may not know that I am a huge Beatles fan. Probably because my mom was, but this song is a fantastic way to introduce yourself to some simple 7 chords. Now if you do not know your 7 chords yet, that's perfectly fine because you can just use your normal open chords. What do I mean by that?

If you see A7, just play and A chord. If you see E7, play and E chord, etc. Also, if you are not to good with barre chords yet, you can exchange the dreaded F chord barre chord for a simpler chord called Fmaj7 which looks almost exactly like a chord chord just play on a couple different strings.

To stick with the style of this song I would try and play all down strum eighth notes, which could be tricky if you are not fast. You can also just play for down strums per chord. Most chords are play for two measures and a marked in parenthesis with a (2). All other chord are 1 measure.

This version is in the Key of A.

Strum:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   or  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

By The Beatles

                          A(2)                                D7(2)
Well she was just seventeen, if you know what I mean,
               A(2)                                                     E7(2)
And the way she looked was way beyond compare,
          A                 A7                D        F                  A               E7         A(2)
So how could I dance with another,     when I saw her standing there.

          A(2)                               D7(2)
Well she looked at me, and I, I could see,
            A(2)                                                  E7(2)
That before too long I'd fall in love with her.
 A                        A7               D         F    A         E7                           A(2)
She wouldn't dance with another,    when I saw her standing there.

       D7 (4)
My heart went boom when I crossed that room,
            E(2)                                 D(2)
And I held her hand in mine...

                   A(2)                                                  D7(2)
Well we danced through the night, and we held each other tight,
            A(2)                                              E7(2)
And before too long I fell in love with her.
          A                 A7             D          F    A         E7                           A(2)
Now I'll never dance with another,    since I saw her standing there.
