Let's see what I remember from junior high....


          F#m              Bm        F#m
When the truth is found out  to be lies
    F#m           Bm            F#m
And all the love    within you dies
          Am    Em         F#m
Don't you want somebody to love
Bm        Am     Em         F#m
Don't you need somebody to love
Bm        Am       Em       F#m
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
Bm         Em      Bm       F#m
You better find somebody to love



That looks more or less correct......

I like your tab. I just wish that I could find one for the solo, though.

you got the jist of it, but I think Am, Em and Bm should all be major. F#m should be the only minor.

I agree the F#m is the only minor chord. The chorus goes from a A to E then to a B chord,acouple times then to an F#min.
