Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head
By: B.J. Thomas 



Taken from the 'Help' charity album 



Intro

 E / B / A / B /    x2

Verse 1

 E                            Emaj7
 Raindrops keep falling on my head
 E7
 Just like guy who's feet
     A               G#m
 Are too big for his bed
 C#m              G#m
 Nothing seems to fit
 C#m  A                                              B
 Oh raindrops keep falling on my head, keep falling

Verse 2: Repeat Verse 1

Chorus

             E       Emaj7 
 There's one thing I know
     A                  B
 The blues they sent to meet me
         G#m
 Won't defeat me
             C#m
 It won't be long
                 A     B     A     B
 Until happiness comes up to greet me
    A                        B
 To greet, greet, greet me


Verse 3: Repeat Verse 1

Mid-Section
  The trumpet in the mid-section plays the melody line from the chorus  

   E       Emaj7        A            B            G#m          C#m

Break-Down
  This two bar break is actually played by the bass but it sounds fine on

A-|-----------------|-------|
E-|-5-4--5-4--5-4-2-|-0-----|

Outro
             Emaj7
 Because I'm free
                   B
 Nothing's worrin' me

               Repeat and fade

Verse melody
  This guitar part isn't actually played in the song at any point but it can
be played by a guitar over the verse, in the same way the trumpet solo plays
the chorus melody in the mid-section
