With A Little Help From My Friends:Joe Cocker.
#1 in the UK in '68. (From Lennon/McCartney's
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, '67.)
  
[Intro] 

G D A (x5)
  
[Verse 1]
(Cocker's version is a lot slower than the Beatles
and isn't exactly the same.)

A              E       Bm 
What would you do if I sang out of tune,  
          E            E7          A 
would you stand up and walk out on me? 
             E             Bm 
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song  
         E          E7          A   
and I'll try not to sing out of key. 
  

[Chorus]
  
A                 G                D            A 
Oh, I'm gonna get by with a little help from my friends. 
                    G                  D            A 
I just keep trying, high with a little help from my friends. 
                  G                  D            A 
I wanna get high, high with a little help from my friends. 
            G  D       A 
I just hold on with my friends. 
  

[Verse 2]

A         E          Bm  
What do I do when my love is away? 
        E            E7  A 
Does it worry you to be alone? Oh no! 
         E           Bm 
How do I feel by the end of the day ? 
        E                  E7      A 
Are you sad because you're on your own? (I don't get sad!) 
  

[Chorus]

A                 G                D            A 
Oh, I'm gonna get by with a little help from my friends. 
                    G                  D            A 
I just keep trying, high with a little help from my friends. 
                  G                  D            A 
I wanna get high, high with a little help from my friends. 
            G  D       A 
I just hold on with my friends. 

A              F#m       A        G       A
Do you need anybody?...I need somebody to love. 
               F#m                 E 
Could it be anybody? All I need is someone, 
E7                     G          D       A
Lord, I need someone...I want somebody to love.
  

[Chorus]

A                 G                D            A 
Oh, I'm gonna get by with a little help from my friends. 
                    G                  D            A 
I just keep trying, high with a little help from my friends. 
                  G                  D            A 
I wanna get high, high with a little help from my friends. 
            G  D       A 
I just hold on with my friends. 
   

[Verse 3]

A           E          Bm 
Would you believe in a love at first sight? 
    E               E7              A 
I'm certain that it happens all the time. 
     E                   Bm 
What do you see when you turn out the light? 
        E                   E7        A     
I don't see too much, but I know it's mine. 


[Chorus]

A                 G                D            A 
Oh, I'm gonna get by with a little help from my friends. 
                    G                  D            A 
I just keep trying, high with a little help from my friends. 
                  G                  D            A 
I wanna get high, high with a little help from my friends. 
            G  D       A 
I just hold on with my friends. 
 
A              F#m     A          G       A
Do you need anybody?...I need somebody to love.
               F#m                 E 
Could it be anybody? All I need is someone, 
E7                     G          D       A
Lord, I need someone...I want somebody to love. 
  

[Chorus] x2

A                 G                D            A 
Oh, I'm gonna get by with a little help from my friends. 
                    G                  D            A 
I just keep trying, high with a little help from my friends. 
                  G                  D            A 
I wanna get high, high with a little help from my friends.

@artierossi not sure if you'll get this 4 months later, but I play four notes, it's easy:

A string open
A string 4th fret
D string 2nd fret
D string 4th fret (which coincides with a note in the F#m chord, so you can land on that, sounds even better)

Cheers
