The Beatles - I'm Only Sleeping. 
Taken from the album, Revolver


VERSE 1

D#m                         G#m      F#      B     F#        A#7
When I wake up early in the morning, lift my head, I'm still yawning

D#m                         G#m      F#      B        F#      B       G#m
When I'm in the middle of a dream, I stay in bed, and float upstream



CHORUS 1.

F#                    G#m                A#m              G#m
Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am

         F#        
I'm only sleeping



VERSE 2.

D#m                          G#m   F#      B       F#            A#7
Everybody seems to think I'm lazy, I don't mind, I think they're crazy

D#m                          G#m     F#       B     F#         B      G#m
Running everywhere at such a speed, 'til they find, there's no need



CHORUS 2.

F#                    G#m             A#m            G#m
Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away, and after all

         F#
I'm only sleeping



BRIDGE 1.

C#m7                  D#7               G#m     (NC)
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window, taking my time

D#m                             G#m      F#     B     F#    A#7
Lying there and staring at the ceiling, Waiting for a sleepy feeling


                **SOLO**
           (same chords as verse)


CHORUS 3.

F#                    G#m             A#m            G#m
Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away, and after all

         F#
I'm only sleeping



BRIDGE 2.

C#m7                  D#7               G#m     (NC)
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window, taking my time

D#m                         G#m      F#      B     F#        A#7
When I wake up early in the morning, lift my head, I'm still yawning

D#m                         G#m      F#      B        F#      B       G#m
When I'm in the middle of a dream, I stay in bed, and float upstream



CHORUS 4.

F#                    G#m                A#m              G#m
Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am

I'm only sleeping.

Great job! There are 3 things I want to comment on. According to my ear, I don't think the Abm chord after each verse is in the song. secondly, during the "I'm only sleeping lyric" I think it should be a B chord, not "F#". and Thirdly, I don't think you would call it F#, it should be Gb considering its in the key of Eb Minor.
